Florida A&M University Student Investigation After Posing Nude In Graduation Photo
“As I’m standing here with my Masters Degree at the tender age of 24, I am the living proof that clothes do not define you,” Terica Williams wrote on social media.
“I encouraged every body to embrace their bodies and step outside social norms.”
Her post on July 30 — with photos showing her wearing nothing but a Medusa-inspired wig and Christian Louboutin heels in front of a statue of the school’s snake mascot, “Rattler” — has since racked up nearly 48,000 likes on Instagram.
But many commenters were turned off by the nudist HBCU grad revealing her goodies, blasting her approach to body positivity.
“I wish you could’ve thought of other ways to represent body positivity. Maybe a sheet? A snake cover up? Anything but being booty ball naked on campus,” one user wrote.
Another bashed the photoshoot as “crazy & classless,” writing, “Why are you on campus naked bent over?”
“Highlight your education, beauty, and your accomplishments NOT your naked body in front of a prestigious University,” one critic said.
