A Georgia school principal was fired after she made a racist remark about African Americans during a graduation ceremony on Friday.
Nancy Gordeuk, principal and founder of TNT Academy in Stone Mountain, accidentally dismissed the crowd before the valedictorian spoke, but when she tried to correct her mistake, she ended up going on a rant about the African Americans in the audience that was caught on video.
“You people are being so rude to not listen to this speech,” Gordeuk said. “It was my fault that we missed it in the program. Look who’s leaving! All the black people!”

Gordeuk sent out an apology email to parents absurdly blaming the devil for her remarks.
“The devil was in the house and came out from my mouth,” she wrote. “I deeply apologize for my racist comment and hope that forgiveness is in your hearts.”
She has since been fired after the school’s board of directors voted to fire Gordeuk.
In an interview with NBC News, the now ex-school official tried to explain the reasoning behind her bigoted statement, “When I looked up, all I saw was black families leaving, and thus the comment,” she said. “I didn’t know 'black people' was a racist term.”
