The Ohio State Buckeyes, like many schools, have an apparently unofficial school Snapchat account where students can submit pics as they go about life on campus.

As of this morning, I'm a (not very) proud subscriber, and I can report to you that the account is mainly harmless, sometimes NSFW, and currently flooded with a ridiculous cheating story perfect for 2017.

It all began—apparently—when this image ended up on their Snapchat story:

The image, of a Snapchat conversation between someone named "AJ"—with their full name blocked out—and an unnamed woman apparently caused the Ohio State community to completely melt down.

Mainly, panic spread among the rest of the school's AJs...

...who united online to rally for their innocence.

...The odds were stacked against every good AJ in town...

In staggering numbers, they demanded release of the bad last name that would clear their good first name.

Eventually, AJ was supposedly identified by another post on The Buckeye Snap account. Still without more evidence than a juicy anonymous screenshot, the next step was dredging up the apparent cheating AJ's social media pages to drag him through the internet for a hearty public shaming.

The internet is scary.

They found his Instagram.

And his Facebook.

"Taken by my best friend," went his bio. "Not for long," responded Ohio State.

The story went viral Wednesday morning on Imgur, when someone—almost certainly a Buckeye—posted a collection of screenshots from the unfolding Snapchat story.

Right now there's no question that the Buckeyes run a top three school when it comes to celebrating cheating drama. Memes poured through the account like buttery shame through AJ's cold black heart.

Even more ridiculous is the fact that people were watching this unfold from all over the world.

Then students from around the country started snapping into the story. No one wanted to miss out on AJ's public Maury moment.

As far as a conclusion, well, the purported Buckeye Snaps Twitter account is still tweeting about the drama.

We don't know what AJ's response has been, but he's definitely horrified. As of right now, the Buckeye Snapchat account is full of video testimonials from supposed friends of AJ, defending him through their hysterical laughter.

Everyone's loving the drama—and it's all from one flimsy screenshot. If AJ ends up being innocent, by some miracle, it seems like he'll never escape the damage on campus. On the other hand, he should claim this is a massive psychological experiment for his senior thesis about the confluence of cheating, memes, and the internet.

Because the lessons here are obvious: the internet is brutal, screenshots are forever, and everyone hates a cheater.

Enjoy your new garb, AJ:
