Last week, Gucci Mane was picked to make an appearance at an Atlanta middle school's career day as a guest speaker. Parents and alumni of the school are enraged over the school's choice in speakers, and questioned the thought process that went into having La Flare speak to the children.
"How do you justify bringing someone who is not even at the top of his game in the rap industry, who has a rap sheet because he's been in so much legal trouble?" asked former student Leisle Moody.
Gucci has been in jail twice since 2008, most recently for pushing a woman out of a moving car.
"I don't think he was such a good role model. They could have selected another individual," said parent Kevin Hall.
Do you think Gucci Mane was an appropriate speaker for an Atlanta middle school?
