Louisiana State University appears to be displeased with one of Olivia Dunne’s recent TikTok videos.
Olivia is the most famous U.S. college athlete on the internet as she has the most followers across social media platforms. The 20-year-old, a gymnast at LSU, has also done a lot to increase the school’s popularity as her content often goes viral.
However, she’s gotten on their wrong side this week after posting a video to TikTok in which she advertised an AI generator that writes essays, something an overwhelmed student might find handy from time to time.
The essay generator, Caktus.ai, is a website used to automate essays and other assignments so students don’t have to do them on their own. Of course, it’s also cheating, so Olivia promoting it on her platform came as a surprise.
LSU didn’t seem best pleased after the video dropped either and has since released a statement in which they make it clear that using such tools is a violation of the school’s code of conduct.
“Technology, including AI, can foster learning and creativity. At LSU, our professors and students are empowered to use technology for learning and pursuing the highest standards of academic integrity,” the statement reads (H/T WGNO). “However, using AI to produce work that a student then represents as ones own could result in a charge of academic misconduct, as outlined in the Code of Student Conduct.”
The star gymnast will need to be more careful sharing such websites in the future, whether or not they’re paid advertisements, as there could be ramifications.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
