University of Idaho Professor Sues TikToker for Defamation Following Accusations That She Orchestrat


A TikToker is being sued for defamation by a professor after she accused the educator of orchestrating the murder of four students.

On Wednesday, professor Rebecca Scofield of the University of Idaho, chair of the school's history department, filed a lawsuit in Idaho District court.

According to reports, Ashley Guillard, a TikTok personality with more than 100,000 followers, has posted several videos accusing Scofield of orchestrating the deaths based on her tarot card readings.

In the case of Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, 20, police have yet to identify any suspects.  The victims were fatally stabbed between 3 and 4 a.m. on Nov. 13 inside a home near the University of Idaho campus.

"Professor Scofield has never met Guillard," the suit says.  "She does not know her.  She does not know why Guillard picked her to repeatedly falsely accuse her of ordering the tragic murders and being involved with one of the victims. Professor Scofield does know that she has been harmed by the false TikToks and false statements."

On Nov. 24, Guillard shared videos accusing the professor, stating that she "had been involved in a relationship with one of the murdered students, K.G. [Kaylee Goncalves]." The suit added that Scofield worries that Guillard's "false statements may motivate someone to cause harm to her or her family members."

According to Scofield, the accusations have caused "significant emotional distress and damage" to her reputation, and as a result, the educator is seeking an unspecified amount of damages.

"Professor Scofield did not commit or in any way participate in the murders of the four students," the complaint read, adding that the professor was in Portland, Oregon, with her husband at the time of the murders and checked out of a hotel hours after the fatal incident.
