A 21-year-old student at the University of South Alabama has been arrested and charged with making terrorist threats after writing Tyler, the Creator lyrics on a flip chart in the school's library, the Associated Press reports.

The student, Jack Aaron Christensen, wrote lyrics from the track "Radicals," which reads "kill people, burn shit, fuck school." It features on Tyler's 2011 album Goblin and arrives with a disclaimer in the intro: “Random disclaimer. Hey, don’t do anything that I say in this song, okay? It’s fucking fiction. If anything happens, don’t fucking blame me, White America. Fuck Bill O’Reilly.”

According to the criminal complaint, the incident happened "on or around" the anniversary of the September 11 attacks.

According to Michael Mitchell, Vice President for Student Affairs, Christensen has been “barred from university property pending the outcome of student conduct processes." Mitchell explained that "No matter the circumstances, our police must treat any possible threat with the utmost seriousness and act immediately to ensure the safety of our campus community.”
