Starting in Sept 2016 Eddie Curlin, an African-American former student, had multiple incidents of spray painting "KKK" or "Leave Niggers" on various buildings and bathrooms. While many outlets connected the imaginary racism to Trump at the time, at least a few (like WaPo) did correct the record when he was caught and convicted a year later... after the perception damage was already cemented in. And Curlin got 2-5 years for other crimes (receiving stolen goods).
