Bias incidents at Vassar were a hoax as one of the culprits was 'the transgender student leading the investigations into the offensive graffiti'
Messages included offensive threats at transgender students and African Americans
Claims were investigated by student-led group and school officials later realized that one of the group leaders was behind the graffiti
Both of the students involved have left the school
The purported hate crime included a graffito reading "Avoid being a hot mess."
