High School Principal Apologizes For Bigoted Freakout; Blames Satan
A high school principal says the devil made her do it.
“The devil was in the house and came out from my mouth,” TNT Academy founder Nancy Gordeuk said via email on Saturday. “I deeply apologize for my racist comment and hope that forgiveness in in [sic] your hearts.”
According to one student, the trouble began when Gordeuk mistakenly dismissed the crowd early at a graduation ceremony on Friday. “She forgot the final speech,” graduate Donte Lambert told WXIA-TV. “Then she told everyone to come back.” From CNN:
The video shows Gordeuk standing at the podium in front of a live microphone as she says, “You people are being so rude, to not listen to this speech.”
As commotion grows in the audience, she blurts out, “Look who’s leaving, all the black people,” prompting cries from the audience and an even larger exodus.
