GEORGIA (WITI) — A school founder in Georgia made a racial remark at a graduation ceremony that shocked the audience.

According to WGHP, the incident happened Friday, May 8th at TNT Academy’s graduation ceremony in Lilburn, Georgia.

Founder Nancy Gordeuk accidentally ended the ceremony without allowing the valedictorian to make their speech. According to the report, when she realized her mistake, she asked students that were leaving to come back inside to hear the speech.

But it was difficult to get everyone back inside as they were already heading to their cars. Gordeuk took to the microphone and said:

“You people are being so rude to not listen to this speech. It was my fault that we missed it in the program. Look who’s leaving…all the black people.”

When Gordeuk said this, that’s when the shocked crowd erupted in anger and left.
