Watch These Parents Start An All-Out BRAWL During A High School Graduation Ceremony

We get it. Graduation ceremonies are a big deal, where you get to celebrate the accomplishments of the next generation. People will be, understandably, excited.

But are they really a cause for fist fights?

A Memphis high school graduation turned into fisticuffs after family members got into a dispute over seating.

Everyone hates those trolls that save too many seats, or just flat out steal reserved spots from others. And while no one’s quite sure which group was in the wrong here, that issue seems to be what started the brawl.

Multiple videos captured the incident (of course people taped it, instead of trying to intervene and stop the fight). It sounds like all this happened before the proper ceremony, yet it definitely threw a shadow over the proceedings.

One woman would get knocked to the ground. Several others are throwing haymakers and grabbing each other’s hair. And all this, as you can see at the end, is taking place while the kids are walking down the aisles.

It took several people to finally end the melee, including on-site security who placed at least one lady in cuffs. It’s not clear if the actual police ever got involved.

The school superintendent addressed the fracas the next day: “Last night we celebrated 500 students who graduated from Arlington High School. This year’s class earned over $30,600,000 in college scholarships. It was unfortunate that a couple of adults in the audience exhibited the behavior they did prior to the ceremony beginning and thus has caused a distraction from the celebration of our students’ accomplishments."

Which really nails it on the head: it’s not about your seating, parents. It’s about being there to support your kids.

I had a rough childhood. I watched my parents murdered right before my eyes. Shot point-blank by some two-bit thug.

So I ran away from Gotham and wandered the earth, until eventually Liam Neeson found me in an obscure Asian jail. He gave me a home, taught me to fight, and showed me the true meaning of justice meant wearing black rubber latex and speaking really deeply. 

Then I killed him with a flying commuter train.
