A young man, Daverius Peters, on Wednesday, May 19, was blocked from gaining access into his school’s graduation ceremony.

Despite the fact that the boy was wearing the expected purple cap and gown, a school official at the door told him he has the wrong shoe on, The Washington Post reports.

It should be noted that the school authority had spelt out that no athletic shoes are to be worn to its graduation ceremony.

On the said day, the teenager arrived even with black leather sneakers that have prominent white soles. Speaking with the media, Peters said he thought he could wear them since the colour of the footwear matches the dress code.

He was stopped at the door and was overwhelmed with a great feeling of humiliation. He said that he was really shocked too.

Mr Butler saves the day

A 38-year-old black teacher, Butler, came to the rescue as he had to let go of his own shoes for Peters even after appealing to the school official to let the teenager in.

He said:

“It was a no-brainer. This was the most important moment in his life up to that point, and I wasn’t going to let him miss it for anything.”

Peters’ parents were really happy for what Butler did, saying his act of love was a very thoughtful one. They added that the public school system needs more teachers like him.

Dollar rain at graduation ceremony

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young US rapper, Metro Marrs, pulled off a stunt that would probably have got him a pat on the back in other climes.

At his graduation ceremony in Atlanta, the man threw $5000 (N2,056,250) cash in the air and continued doing so despite authority trying to stop him.

His flagrant disobedience got him arrested and detained by the police. A video of the act has since gone viral on Twitter.
