- High school student’s yearbook quote goes viral
- She had told friends what she wanted to write. They didn't believe her
- She then went ahead to submit the quote to her school's yearbook team
- Now everyone is on her case because of this particular. Here is why
A 17-year-old high school student has become a celebrity overnight after a quote she had submitted to her school’s yearbook team and shared online went viral.
Savanna Tomlinson, from Florida, US, became the talk of her school after sharing her quote, even as she received both praises and criticisms on social media.
According to her, she simply wanted to write something that could make her stand out from the crowd and also entertain her peers.
Tomlinson had reportedly shared her yearbook quote with close friends, but they thought she was kidding. Then, to everyone’s surprise, she went through with it.
The quote read, “Anything is possible when you sound Caucasian on the phone”, construed by some to mean that you were more likely to get anything you want provided you are a white person.
Clearly, the quote was laced with strong racial undertones that some people found thoroughly offensive as much as others believed it was the bitter truth.
As of today, over 141,000 Twitter users have liked her yearbook quote. Another 58,000 have retweeted it.
“You are an icon,” one user commented. “I don't even know you and I'm ready write you a recommendation just from this statement,” another user wrote.
Tomlinson wanted to stand out, and it seems she has accomplished that goal, irrespective of what her yearbook quote says.
