Sup Travellers?! Schools are great but most, if not all schools don't pay you to be a student especially high schools. So most students are broke and solely reliant on the funding from their parents or guardians. But one 18 year old student from Florida named Robert Marucci took funding into his own hands. In order to earn money to supply for his family he performed in a gay adult film. 

It was a personal decision in his personal life and did not involve his school in any way. However, one immature adolescent found the X rated material and decided to share it throughout Cocoa High School according to the NY Daily News. After the material went viral at the school Marucci became the target of bullies. He was then suspended from the school last Wednesday for unspecified conduct violations.


Marucci strongly believes that he did nothing wrong. "I feel like I have been treated unfairly and this is unjust," Marucci said.  "This was completely legal. I didn't break any laws, and this took place out of the school." His mother was brought into the mix and you'd probably assume that she wold have been pissed and embarrassed but she actually knew that he was in adult films and thinks that her son is the most awesome person in the world. "I think he's the most awesome person in the world," she said. "He stood up and he was the man of the house when I couldn't be." NY Daily News reports that Marucci will return to school after his suspension despite the bullying but some reports say that he was not suspended but EXPELLED.

This is a very tentative situation and I don't think that Cocoa High School was ready for it. The school apparently had no documented ways to handle the situation so they relied on their own personal morals. Even if they had a documented procedure, for some reason it was not divulged to the media. I personally don't know what to think of this. The situation has more than two sides and each side has its pros and cons. I'd more lean towards the side of the school since his actions were in fact immoral according to society's standard. Am I right? Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
