Teen shares ’embarrassing’ moment during graduation ceremony: ‘Everyone looks so scared’

A high school senior got the surprise of her life at her graduation ceremony. And it wasn’t the kind of surprise you look forward to either.

TikToker Alexandra shared a mortifying moment during her graduation walk. While she was on stage to receive her diploma, a person started shouting in the crudest way. 

“That’s incredible! This is incredible!” the audience member screamed, using a strange voice. 

While what was said wasn’t rude, the tone and the moment were totally inappropriate. 

“My friend said [they] think this would go viral. I was so angry,” Alexandra said in the caption. 

Her friend was right. It did go viral, racking up 32.7 million views on TikTok.

“Congrats, love. Although that was a scary way of being celebrated,” one person wrote

“You should’ve asked to go again,” another said

“The silence… Everyone looks so scared,” someone noticed

In a follow-up video, Alexandra elaborated on the situation. 

“No, this person is not a friend or anybody related to me. It had nothing to do with me personally, it just happened to have happened in the middle of my walk,” Alexandra explained. “Yes, I was upset. I was disappointed, but I was mostly embarrassed. I felt bad for my friends and my family that were watching it live. It is not what I envisioned my graduation walk to be like.” 

But she was still able to see the bright side of the situation, thanks to TikTok.

“I want to thank you guys for turning this embarrassing moment into the most memorable,” she signed off with.
