Kaitlin Nootbaar was valedictorian of her graduating class at Prague High School in Prague, Oklahoma, but she has not yet officially graduated. The 4.0 student used the word 'hell' in her commencement speech, and school officials are now refusing to grant her a diploma.

Is it fair?

Nootbaar was inspired by the movie 'Twilight Saga:  Eclipse' in which one of the characters delivered a similar speech.

Should she have to apologize in order to receive her diploma? Would you support your son or daughter in a similar situation? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
