Answer: John Sexton trying to friend you on Facebook.
That’s right, President John “let me give you a hug” Sexton is on Facebook. Well, at least someone wants you to think he is.
His profile page includes three quotes from The Man Himself, an interest in “walking legs” (?), and several student comments on his wall, all essentially saying: “Give me some fucking financial aid already, J.Sex.” The utter strangeness of this pseudo Mr. Sexton “friending” random NYU students, his status urging you to follow his Twitter feed, and the comment under his sole tagged photo (“What a good lookin’ bunch of change-makers”) are beyond hilarity.
Too bad that everything from his relationship status (apparently he’s openly getting down with NYU senior Caitlin Boehne) to his interest in “following a calling to NYU’s manifest destiny” reek of Take Back NYU trickery. If it were the real Sexton I’m sure that virtual hugs would be in order and couldn’t we all use one of those?
