Quinton Murphy of Jack Britt High School ini Fayetteville North Carolina was very excited about his graduation. So excited that when it was his time to pick up his diploma, he stripped off his robe to expose his bare chest and some leopard patterned boxer briefs.

Fayetteville school officials were not as amused as the crowd who witnessed it, and have banned him from ever returning to the school. He was escorted out of the ceremony by police officers and will be denied his official diploma. However, as Murphy completed the requirements for graduation, he will be viewed and considered as a graduate.

“Our schools have worked so hard,” Cumberland County School Superintendent Frank Till, Jr.  told the Fayetteville Observer. “It used to be that the audience would be disruptive at graduation. We’ve worked hard to get the audiences to respect our students. This young man chose not to show respect for his colleagues.” Till has made it clear that other would-be graduation pranksters will face punishment.

After Murphy’s disrobing, the graduation went on as scheduled. Murphy’s antics will be edited out of the official video of the graduation ceremony. Murphy somehow evaded school staffers who check what students are wearing underneath their graduation robes. Murphy did have on an unbuttoned shirt, but its unclear how leopard briefs were missed.

Murphy a member of the Jack Britt football team, reportedly told a friend on Facebook that he “just wanted to go out with a bang, lol.”

Well, mission accomplished.

    • A prank? You are absolutely wrong. A graduation is a prideful milestone that extended family attend with great joy. One must assume that this Nicca’s family was in attendance. This is the kind of behavior that he associates with his family? Parents, grandparents, kids? Hell Naw.
      A prank is doing this out the back window of a Metro bus. Not on stage at a graduation.

      If you believe this is acceptable behavior, then I suggest you evaluate the type of people you surround yourself with.

  1. Now, it’s on the web, so any potential employer will say, “uh, I don’t think so”. Blacks have come so far from the days when we couldn’t even GO to school and this is just so disappointing. I wish him well in the future, but Call it what it is – another young black man making bad choices that can’t be fixed. Momma, get the switch!

      well it is a prank he earned his diploma and education no one can take away, they need to give him his diploma and discipline him another way

    Poor taste but it’s a prank, worse has been done. At least he wasn’t a nude streaker. Unfortunate that he’s paying a hefty price for it, lesson learned.

    Good Grief! What a a hole! And as usual no respect for others and it is not funny. You flash students and adults…What about his parents? What’s wrong with living with dignity and respect for yourself..I am sure he is too fool to know he disrespected himself. He did not have to show his azz, he is already an a hole.
