Mr. Worldwide is now Mr. Graduate! Rapper Pitbull received an honorary degree from Doral College in Miami, the singer’s hometown, on Tuesday. While his graduation picture may seem dishonorable, his reasoning behind the middle finger is pretty awesome.
Pitbull tweeted the picture along with the caption,
for those that didn’t believe #dale”
Way to tell the haters, Mr. 305.
During the ceremony, Pitbull spoke about his passion for education and recalled his time growing up in Miami.
“I remember being kicked out of a public school because I didn’t have the right address. That’s why I want better schools for the kids who live where I grew up. That’s why Doral Academy was founded, and that’s why I helped create SLAM [Sports Leadership and Management Academy] in the neighborhood where I grew up…a school that offers a choice for students, like me, students who need someone to inspire them, someone to believe in them.”
I think it’s great to see a celebrity so involved in and passionate about the education system of America. Way to go, Pitbull!
