(WHAS11) -- A University of Kentucky student is facing terroristic threat charges Friday morning after he emailed a picture of the Batman character, "the Joker" to a school administrator.

Steven Kennedy reportedly emailed the picture after a complaint about the administrator was investigated and dismissed.

The email was viewed as a threat in light of last Friday's mass killing in Aurora, Colorado at a premiere showing of the "Dark Knight Rises."

The man charged with killing 12 people and injuring 58 others had dyed his hair red and reportedly told police he was the Joker.
