“Look who's leaving, all the black people,” said Gordeuk, whose remarks were captured on a viral cellphone video.

She issued an apology in a statement to Fox News following an uproar over her comments. “I sincerely apologize to all the persons in attendance at the ceremony for the actions of the few causing the disturbance and for my emotional, un-called[-for] generalization of the black persons in attendance,” Gordeuk said. “I deeply apologize for my actions made in the emotional state of trying to let this last student finish his speech.”
