The University of Florida is apologizing after several minority students were aggressively removed from the graduation stage.
As students walked up to receive their diplomas some started dancing and that's when they were removed from the stage.
All of those escorted off off the stage were minorities and now the university is apologizing for how they handled the situation.
Was the usher wrong here or did the students take the celebrations too far? Let me know what you think in the comment section.
I should note here that I am not sure if students were told to NOT celebrate on stage, but if they were then these students MAY have ignored the rules. But to aggressively remove them like this seems a bit much.
Here is what the President of the University Tweeted out after videos surfaced on social media.
