High school grad stripped of diploma for stripping onstage

Quinton Murphy

FAYETTEVILLE (WACH) -- Jack Britt High School student Quinton Murphy was denied his diploma after stripping at his high school graduation.

After his name was called during the ceremony, he stripped down to leopard-print underwear, which was followed by some gasp (and applause) from the audience.

According to the Fayetteville Observer, Murphy will not receive his diploma and will be barred from school property and off-campus events.

"Our schools have worked so hard," Superintendent Frank Till Jr. told the newspaper. "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."

WACH the incident take place. Do you think the punishment fit the crime?
