A 28-year-old woman infiltrated a high school for Instagram followers

How do you do fellow kids?

In a millennial rendition of Steve Buscemi’s ‘How do you do fellow kids?’ in 30 Rock, a 28-year-old Florida woman has been arrested after being caught posing as a high school student in order to gain more followers on the Gram.

On Monday (May 10), Audrey Francisquini allegedly snuck into a school in Miami-Dade County with a backpack, a painting under one arm and a skateboard under the other.

According to police, she began distributing fliers with her social media handle to students, before she was stopped by school security. After telling them that she was looking for the registration office, Francisquini continued to prowl the halls with flyers. She was stopped again, but fled the scene before they could get hold of her.

Thanks to the flier with her Instagram handle, however, the authorities managed to track her down to her North Miami Beach home Monday night, where she remained inside and, bizarrely, continued to post on her Instagram story.

“I legit have I don’t know how many cops outside right now of my house,” Francisquini said in a now-deleted Instagram post. “I’m not going outside at all.”

She was subsequently arrested and charged with felony trespassing, misdemeanor interfering with a school, and nonviolently resisting arrest.

To make matters worse, Francisquini is a former police officer who was fired from her job in DeKalb County, Georgia, where she was arrested for allegedly accessing a female colleague’s social media accounts to post revenge porn.

Of course, this isn’t the first time someone has gone to extremes for #content. Influencers have been caught posing on fake private jets, staging flawless not-mirror selfies, and partaking in photoshoots on disaster sites like Chernobyl. Most recently, two influencers were deported from Bali after being caught pranking a local supermarket by painting on fake surgical masks.
