Valedictorian Quotes ‘Twilight’ in Speech, Loses Diploma

Kaitlin Nootbar has a college scholarship and a 4.0 GPA. The only thing she doesn’t have is her high school diploma, which her high school isn’t giving to her after she referenced ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ during her graduation speech and said the word “hell” on stage.

The principal of Nootbar’s Oklahoma high school is saying he’s not handing over her diploma until she writes a letter of apology. We’re not sure if he wants her to apologize for saying hell in front of an audience, or for referencing a ‘Twilight’ movie during her valedictorian speech. She’s supposed to be the smartest person in her class and the best she can do is rip off the graduation scene from a Kristen Stewart movie?

Kaitlin doesn’t plan on apologizing, since she doesn’t think she’s done anything wrong. We think she shouldn’t apologize, because when has anybody ever asked to see your high school diploma? And if nothing else, she has a bright future ahead of her as a ‘Twilight’ fan fiction writer.
