Kaitlin Bennett, better known online as Kent State gun girl, found herself at the center of a viral hashtag on Twitter Wednesday related to feces.
The hashtag, #POOPINGFORKAITLIN, references a photo that surfaced last winter which alleged to show Bennett passed out at a party covered in her own excrement.
The conservative activist, who has been accused of anti-semitism, seems to have drawn the attention of Twitter after calling for an armed insurrection at colleges this week over being booed during a visit to Ohio University.
And just like that, #POOPINGFORKAITLIN was born. The hasthag quickly went viral and became a top trend on Twitter.
Me: Stop giving kaitlin bennett attention it’s how she thrives.

But the hashtag wasn’t just used by those interested in politics. THe hashtag caught the eye of K-Pop stans, who wound up pushing it, causing #POOPINGFORKAITLIN to trend under the “Hip-hop and rap” label.

Anything and everything poop-related from popular culture, whether movies or popular memes, was also used to keep the hashtag on top.

Amazingly, the hashtag wasn’t the only drama facing Bennett. The gun girl also found herself embroiled in a Twitter beef with Kaylen Ward, known online as the “naked philanthropist.”
Ward recently garnered worldwide attention for raising $1 million for the Australia wildfires by offering free nude photos to anyone who would donate to the cause.
On Tuesday, Ward offered the same reward in a now-deleted tweet to anyone willing to both block and report Bennett. The gun girl responded to Ward by calling her a “whore.”
“You should start a campaign to get yourself some clothes and therapy, whore,” Bennett tweeted.
