Showing that the apple does not far fall from the tree, the son of a Georgia principal caught spewing racist remarks during a high school graduation has made racist remarks of his own. This past weekend, video footage showing Nancy Gordeuk, principal of TNT Academy, a private school in Lilburn, Georgia, berating the audience and graduates in attendance. During her racist rant she singled out Black members of the audience. Since then, Gordeuk has released an apology to all the people in attendance, this despite the fact that she specifically targeted Black people.

Now her son, Travis Gordeuk, has been reported to have posted the following comment on his Facebook page, “Y’all n—-s aren’t talkin about s—so if u got somthing [sic] to say come see me face to face,” as he defended his mother and her statements. In addition, Gordeuk posted his home address and challenged those who were criticizing his mother to meet him in person.

For his mother’s part she wrote in a statement the reason for her behavior “The devil was in the house and came out from my mouth. I deeply apologize for my racist comment and hope that forgiveness is in your hearts.”

There has been no word yet on what action the private school will take against the high school principal.
