John Hamill, a regional spokesman for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, posted just one word in reply to the link: "Waitlisted..."

TPM attempted to reach Hamill to ask about the comment. Before TPM could inform him of the reason for the call, he asked for contact information and said he would call back. Hamill has not responded to subsequent attempts to contact him. His comment on Facebook has since been deleted.

The incident at Yale took place on the same day that Connecticut officials released an investigative report detailing last year's elementary school massacre in Newtown, Conn.
