"You can't imagine the #pain of having everything you've worked for your entire life ripped from you in a matter of moments when you've done absolutely nothing wrong. All I ever wanted to do with my life is help people and make the world a better place. My life is over," she tweeted.
In her second tweet, she posted a link to a news story about mobs in India killing people over social media posts.
"I literally had to flee #Yale's campus and go into hiding for my safety. I'm a lifelong and proud #humanrights #activist who has devoted her life to #socialjustice," she continued.
Her attempt to garner sympathy didn't work, and Twitter subsequently snatched her wig.

Sarah Braasch is leaning hard into her white womanhood: first acting as the aggressor, and then retreating into some imagined martyrdom when she discovers racist actions have consequences. pic.twitter.com/YoIjmKGfUf— Zoé (@ztsamudzi) July 19, 2018

Poor little @sarahbraasch1 thinks her life is over because she was exposed as a dumb racist— JonSnow'sLady (@Jon_Snows_Lady) July 22, 2018
Don’t worry Sarah! It’s not like you had much a life before as evidenced by the oodles of time you have to call the cops on a black woman napping #SarahBraasch #LivingWhileBlack
Isn't "having everything you've worked for your entire life ripped from you in a matter of moments when you've done nothing wrong" EXACTLY what you were trying to inflict on Lolade Siyonbola? You've earned every moment of your pariah status, #SarahBraasch. pic.twitter.com/r5BGqPdGxU— Aimee Chamernik (@CardsFan8206) July 21, 2018
Braasch set her Twitter account to private after the hoopla and then deleted the account altogether.
Braasch became infamous in May after she called the police on Lolade Siyonbola for sleeping in their dormitory's common area.
Siyonbola recorded a brief argument with Braasch and her interaction with campus police as they made her prove she lived in the building. The video went viral and helped set off a summer of stories shaming white people for calling the police on black people for mundane reasons.
The incident caused controversy on Yale's campus with numerous calls for Braasch's expulsion, but it is unclear if the school formally disciplined her.
Days after the incident, Siyonbola complained about Yale's inaction:
Yale is still hemmin and hawin. Sarah hasn’t been expelled, or had her state of mind evaluated by professionals. Black folk on campus are still unsafe. #oneweeklater— Lolade Siyonbola (@loladeskentele) May 15, 2018
