The Georgia principal who caused national outrage for a racist outburst she made during a graduation ceremony has been fired less than a week after footage her comments went viral.

Dr Heidi Anderson, chair of the board of directors at TNT Academy, said it voted to dismiss principal Nancy Gordeuk after a racist outburst at the school’s graduation, WXIA reported. The board sent a letter sent to the Gwinnett County NAACP.

“In light of recent events, the board of directors of TNT Academy has moved to dismiss Nancy Gordeuk as principal,” it said.



“During the coming transition, we will continue to prioritise support for our most recent graduates. Moreover, we will continue our commitment to providing students with the best educational classes, transcription services, and academic credit recovery possible.”

Last Friday, Ms Gordeuk, school director of TNT Academy in Stone Mountain, Georgia, yelled offensive statements toward black students in attendance at TNT Academy’s graduation ceremony in Lilburn, Georgia.

“You people are being so rude to not listen to this speech. It was my fault that we missed the speech in the programme — Look who’s leaving! All the black people!’”
