WAVE 3 News spoke with the juvenile claiming to be behind the tweet Friday night. The teen told reporters, “I didn’t think it would really get that serious until it actually did. Then I started feeling really bad about it because people’s mamma’s talkin’ bout movin’ to Indiana for the night and stuff. It was wrong for me to do that. I apologize to everybody in Louisville, I love my city it’s where I was born and raised. I love my city and don’t really wanna harm my city – I just thought it would be funny.”
Despite the social media attention about the prank, at 8 p.m. Friday, the time the Louisville Purge was supposed to start, people weren’t afraid. In fact, they were out and about all over over town.
