Thanks to Principal Nancy Gordeuk, this year’s graduation at TNT Academy quickly went viral because of her racially charged rant.
The tension began when Gordeuk mistakenly ended the graduation before the Valedictorian was given a chance to speak. After a few of the students and families filed out, Gordeuk went into a complete diatribe against the audience.
On the video she can be heard referencing one student as a “goober” (that’s some real old-fashioned language right there) before adding, “Where are you, you little coward? Come on back up here and let’s talk.”
But it was her comments at the end of the rant that really raised eyebrows. She can be heard angrily shouting, “look who’s leaving, all the Black people.” And that was when the entire student body, both Black and White students, let her know how they felt and promptly walked out!
What! You can’t be serious.
The disgraced principal has since released a tired apology via NBC News.
“Frustrated with the prospect of ruining the once-in-a-lifetime ceremony the graduates have worked so hard for, my emotions got the best of me and that is when I blurted out ‘you people are being so rude to not listen to this speech. I deeply apologize for my actions made in the emotional state of trying to let this last student finish his speech.”
Talk about girl, bye! In the candid video (above) you can hear someone say: “She’s off her rocker! That means, don’t argue with a crazy person!”
