Parents and Alumni Upset Gucci Mane Was Chosen for Career Day


Last week, Gucci Mane made headlines for visiting Crawford Long Middle School’s career day as their guest speaker. Now, parents and alumni are outraged that Gucci was chosen to speak to the students.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that parents and alumni of the Atlanta Public School system were not fond of Gucci’s past criminal record and explicit lyrics. One parent said that they could have picked a better role model. Another parent says that La Flare isn’t even on top of his game musically, given the history of his extensive rap sheet.

An APS representative noted that they plan on following up with the school about the matter. “We want to make sure people who serve as role models to our students are in line with our ethical and integrity standards.”
