UPDATE 6:50 P.M. EST: Tyrone Hankerson claims complete innocence. Read more HERE!



Need financial aid this semester? Twitter would say you better call Tyrone.

Tyrone Hankerson, that is; one of the six Howard University employees who was allegedly fired last year after an internal investigation found that several employees were stealing grants from the school.

Howard Students Interrupt James Comey's Convocation Speech In Protest — WATCH

James Comey

We don't think James Comey saw this one coming.

Nick Cannon has officially enrolled as a freshman at Howard University — and it just wouldn't be right if the Internet didn't erupt in Drumline comparisons!

If you live under a rock and have never seen the 2002 classic, the rapper-turned-actor played Devon Miles — a young drummer who forges a life for himself at the fictitious historically black college Atlanta A&T University.

Anywho, as soon as the 35-year-old took to social media with news of his new student status, people couldn't help but bust out references to the marching band drama.

Here's the problem: Just a few years ago, Rachel stated she was white… in court documents.

Back when she was getting her masters at Howard University, Dolezal — who at the time went by her married name Rachel Moore — sued the historically black university and the chairman of the art department.
