His release was immediately met with outrage by many across the country. People are now using the tongue-in-cheek hashtag #ThingsLongerThanBrockTurnersRapeSentence to air their frustrations.

The hashtag took off late Thursday evening and is still gaining momentum.

The responses are mostly a jokey reaction to what many believe is too lenient a sentence.
