She tossed her cap — and her gown, too.

A student who recently earned her master’s in counselor education from Florida A&M University (FAMU) is receiving backlash after posing fully nude on the Tallahassee campus for graduation photos, according to a report.

The article goes on to state the following:

“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.

WARNING: Nude photo below!

In an Instagram post, Williams posted the photo of herself dressed in nothing but high heels and a cap that looks like snakes coming from her head while posing in front of a statue of the school’s snake mascot, “Rattler.”  She writes:

Anybody who knows me knows that I’ve been dressing provocative my whole life. There’s a lot of assumptions that have came with me accepting my body. A lot of people questioned my capabilities and intelligence solely based on how I choose to dress. 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. I encouraged every body to embrace their bodies and step outside social norms.

With love,
Terica Williams, M.Ed #tericastar

The brazen photo is being met with backlash, and some are suggesting her degree should be withheld.

Florida A&M University released a statement, saying, ““The university is aware of the picture taken and is currently investigating the incident.”

On Monday, Williams shared another photo, this time of herself dressed in an evening gown, and wrote:

How the people from the highest of seven hills praying on my downfall?! My degree was earned, not given. They cannot take it away. If you want FAMU to withhold my degree, then you’re the real snakes. With love, Ms. Venom 🐍 #famugrad #tericastar

Williams then posted the following video on Instagram, mockingly saying she’s “sorry.”

  1. Who cares? Nothing but attention seeking. Not that half of Hollywood didn’t do the same thing or more.

  2. Who cares! Isn’t that freedom fools! THINK BEFORE YOU SAY SHIT! SHE IS A ADULT! DOESN’T MAKE IT RIGHT, FREEDOM!

  3. Masters degree but still speaks Ebonics. I highly doubt that she actually earned her degree.But you can bet that taxpayers paid for it

  4. 🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮 Anyone can get a C and earn a College degree and pass. 😂 She can’t be too bright if she poses nude at graduation. She’s the laughing stock of her class now. Attention getter. She’s a wanna be Kim Kardashian who got famous for making a sex tape. What a Fool…so, this is what our colleges are turning out? 🤣

  5. So, indecent experience sure, contributing to the delinquency of minors, and find by her thousands of dollars, and withhold her degree. 🤷‍♀️ You may have “earned” your degree, but you also “earned” the consequences of your stupid, asinine, childish, and obscene stunt. Nobody wants to see that!

  6. Not so brilliant that in spite of her ‘degree’ there are at least three grammatical errors in the first two sentences of her statement.
