A white Georgia principal shocked students and their families on Friday, May 8, when she made racist comments at her school’s graduation ceremony. A video that captures the incident has gone viral.
TNT Academy founder Nancy Gordeuk made the remarks after accidentally dismissing graduates before the class valedictorian gave his speech. While attempting to get families to pay attention, she called a man who had been taking photographs a "goober" and a "coward."
Her comments caused an unrelated family to walk out of the graduation, along with a few others, at which point she began a tirade about people exiting the ceremony.
“You people are being so rude to not listen to this speech,” Gordeuk told the audience, as captured in this footage. “It was my fault that we missed it in the program. Look who’s leaving — all the black people.”
Graduates walked off the stage in protest and families, shocked by the derogatory comments, streamed out of the ceremony.
Jada Gibson, 18, who was attending the ceremony to watch her cousin graduate, filmed this footage as the events unfolded. Gibson said that she began taping the video after Gordeuk said the graduates could leave. According to Gibson, the principal's remarks had followed a string of negative comments made by Gordeuk about black students throughout the ceremony.
