THIS IS TOO FUCKED UP!
This is Kaitlin Nootbaar, a High school valedictorian who has been denied her diploma because she said ‘hell’ during graduation speech. She’s a top high school student and graduated from Oklahoma’s Prague High School in May, making a speech that received laughter and applause. But when she went to collect her certificate from the school’s administration office this week she was told she wouldn’t be getting it until she wrote a formal letter apologising for using the unacceptable word.
Unacceptable word? Hell is in the freaking BIBLE!
'We went to the office and asked for the diploma and the principal said “Your diploma is right here but you’re not getting it. Close the door we have a problem”,’ Nootbaar’s father, David told kfor.com. The script for the teenager’s speech, inspired by the film Eclipse: The Twilight Saga, had been given to the school in advance of the ceremony. It included the word 'heck’ but in the moment she slipped up and said 'hell’ instead, her dad explained.
'Her quote was, when she first started school she wanted to be a nurse, then a veterinarian. And now that she was getting closer to graduation people would ask her what do you want to do and she said “How the hell do I know? I’ve changed my mind so many times.”’
Furious, Nootbaar said she won’t be saying sorry because she doesn’t think she did anything wrong. Adding to her anger is the fact that she starts college in a few days on a full scholarship.
'She earned that diploma she completed all the state curriculum. In four years she has never made a B. She got straight A’s and had a 4.0 the whole way through. She has worked so hard to stay at the top of her class and this is not right,’ said Mr Nootbaar.
SUPPORT HER ALL YOU OKLAHOMIANS AND EVERYONE ELSE!!!
