The page, created on Monday, is called & # 39; jem jem was fined at schoolies & # 39; and is listed in the & # 39; funerals and memorials & # 39;
The description on the page was: & # 39; Jemima got her wrist band and she forgot that she had a bottle of water with vodka.
& # 39; She was fined for drinking in public because she is a stupid bastard and any help would be great for the stupid bastard. & # 39;
The organizer of the page seems to be based in New Zealand.
