By all accounts, Kaitlin Nootbaar was the ideal high school student. Graduating as her class’ valedictorian, her parents told KFOR-TV that she never made so much as a ‘B’ during her four years at Prague High School in Prague, Oklahoma.
“She got straight A’s and had a 4.0 the whole way through,” her dad said during an interview.
The teen plans to begin college this fall on a full scholarship, that is, if school officials can forgive her for the shocking act she committed against the innocent ears of those gathered to hear a G-rated, family friendly graduation speech.
According to Nootbaar’s parents, their daughter’s diploma is being withheld pending a letter of apology from the girl, a letter the teen says she will not be writing. So what did Nootbaar do that was so offensive her principal is now allegedly holding her degree hostage?
Brace yourself. This gets nasty… In her speech Nootbaar dropped an H-bomb.
What? H-bomb is not part of your vernacular? Mine either. That’s because the word hell is used by clergyman and my grandma and most everyone that doesn’t live in an impenetrable conservative bubble.
The written script of her speech supplied to school officials before the ceremony originally contained the much less offensive word ‘heck’ which no one in the crowd would be clever enough to recognize as the word hell masquerading as a socially acceptable term. When Nootbaar delivered the speech at her graduation in May she instead said “How the hell do I know? I’ve changed my mind so many times” as a response to those who ask what she wants to do with her life.
The statement was inspired by the speech delivered in the Twilight movie Eclipse, finally proving to reluctant parents of Twi-fans everywhere that the series can not only cause your teen to morph into a vampire-loving sex fiend, but a profane vampire-loving sex fiend. Those are the worst kind, obviously.
