Let’s start with the most controversial. Kent State senior Kaitlin Bennett’s pro-Second Amendment graduation get-up on garnered both praise and disapproval on Twitter.
1. A Gun Rights Graduation
Some called Bennett insensitive since four students at her school were shot and killed by members of the Ohio National Guard in 1970. Others praised her, and she even appeared on Fox News.
Now that I graduated from @KentState, I can finally arm myself on campus. I should have been able to do so as a student- especially since 4 unarmed students were shot and killed by the government on this campus. #CampusCarryNow pic.twitter.com/a91fQH44cq— Kaitlin Bennett (@KaitMarieox) May 13, 2018
2. That's Lit
In an effort to keep graduation “lit,” this graduating student put lights on his cap. Obviously, he used this power to ask the important question -- When’s nap time?
