: Actor Richard T Jones gave the COMMENCEMENT SPEECH at the University Of Maryland-University College this weekend. And he did such an ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE job . . . it had us wondering . . . is he ON SOMETHING????
It started off badly when he took to the podium and said the following:
Wow! I had this great speech ready for you guys and then you put me behind a bunch of doctors. You put an actor…behind a bunch of doctors…and then they said everything I wanted to say so I figure I’ll keep talking until I say something.
had such great analogies. I had such great quotes…And every one was used already. I’m glad I looked up a word called improv because that is what is going to happen here.
And it all went DOWNHILL from there when he TRIED to sound INTELLIGENT . . . . but was just rambling on - saying COMPLETE GIBBERISH!!!
OK, we have a few questions. First of all WHY would they get HIM to be a graduation speaker. We barely even know dude's name. Second . . . no there is no second . . . why the F*CK you get HIM as a speaker.
For those of you BRAVE enough to watch this, check it out below. We warn you, it's TOUGH to get through without feeling UTTERLY EMBARRASSED for him . . . and all the Black students in the audience:
You can tell he was a little bit nervous. Honestly the guy did nothing wrong, and there was nothing he said that was so outlandish. You can tell he just ran out of words. But on the real, he still should have stuck to his original speech even if he was going to say what other people have said. Better repeat what others said, then this snafu.
What kind of graduation was this> Was it high school, grade school, day care? I know this was not college. And btw, what the hell was he talking about?..... "I had a thought, thoughts are so important...bla bla bla"
This ninja spent 10 mins rambling on and on about "thoughts" he sounds so stupid its pitiful. You can tell he wasn't prepared @ all. Why even show up if you don't know what you're going to say. This was so embarrassing. Dang
i like his acting roles he chooses well ummmm ok

MTO is so dumb!!! The funny part is that your writer (MTO) said that he looked up a word called IMPROVE!!!
But he actually said he looked up a word called IMPROV!!! MTO's staff is dumber than a bag of rocks. FOH...
These students were receiving a doctorate degree & this is what they had to listen to? This shyt was for a middle school graduation. He should've called out sick instead of standing there giving disclaimers about how his speech would suck, and it did.
MTO (LATE AS USUAL , IF THIS STORY WAS ON TIME I WOULD OF THOUGHT SOMETHING WAS WRONG) ANYWAYS...HE'S UNATTRACTIVE. HE MADE HIMSELF LOOK LIKE A COON ASS FOOL WHO AIN'T EVER DONE SH_T OR ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING. I SWEAR ! DUMBASS.
Damn. That's why I hate public speaking! Nerves will kill you everytime. Being an actor you would think his nerves wouldnt get the best of him. But I guess when you have to use your own words its different. He should read the speech he wrote regardless. Another point, this isnt a race issue either dumb ass racist people on this site! The WHITE SPEAKERS at my graduation was horrible speakers just like the valendictorian who graduated Magna Cum Laude---he really sucked and had all of us confused!!!!
Ok listen, Although I normally don't stick up for MTO, but when MTO wrote the
whole "IMPROV" thing, that WASN'T MTO's words! that is what RICHARD T. JONES
actually said!! he said "So, this is gonna be good, I'm glad I looked up a word
called IMPROV cause that's what's gonna happen here" he said this after he was
explaining how the other speakers said all of the quotes he was gonna use.(4:39
So this time MTO wasn't complete idiots...
Note: MTO if you are gonna quote someone put QUOTATION marks around it so that
we know it isn't you, but someone else' words. #justsayin
That the direct result of the powers that be becoming so complacent as to think a few hours spent before a movie camera qualifies you for anything including addressing college graduates. He himself pointed same out at the end of his speech. So who really is to blame here?
Im sooOOoo embarrassed for him I think I wanna cry!!!! YTF didnt he keep it short if he didnt have sh1t to say???? And what is SOO hard about giving an inspirational speech??? I think he was on the lil blue pill!! They needed to get a hook and haul his ass of that stage!!! *Hides face in embarrassment*
University of Maryland is a great school. Why al the criticism? Is it because there is jealousy that people are doing things with their lives? Please. I didn't watch the video and will not watch it. Whether it was boring or not giving speeches are hard for some people. At least he got up there and spoke.
This speech happened two weeks ago and I know because I was there live and in person. All I'm gonna say is, "I STILL don't know what the message was." #whatsthepointcauseimissedit...ohright...thecheck#
