Actor Richard T Jones gave the COMMENCEMENT SPEECH at the University Of Maryland-University College this weekend. And he did such an ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE job . . . it had us wondering . . . is he ON SOMETHING????
It started off badly when he took to the podium and said the following:
Wow! I had this great speech ready for you guys and then you put me behind a bunch of doctors. You put an actor…behind a bunch of doctors…and then they said everything I wanted to say so I figure I’ll keep talking until I say something.
had such great analogies. I had such great quotes…And every one was used already. I’m glad I looked up a word called improv because that is what is going to happen here.
And it all went DOWNHILL from there when he TRIED to sound INTELLIGENT . . . . but was just rambling on - saying COMPLETE GIBBERISH!!!
OK, we have a few questions. First of all WHY would they get HIM to be a graduation speaker. We barely even know dude's name. Second . . . no there is no second . . . why the F*CK you get HIM as a speaker.
For those of you BRAVE enough to watch this, check it out below. We warn you, it's TOUGH to get through without feeling UTTERLY EMBARRASSED for him . . . and all the Black students in the audience:
Wonder what the students gotta say about that. Why would they have him giving speeches anyway?? Who cares, follow me @AKizzleBKing
well *** that was boring as hell. i couldnt finish. i feel bad for him now :(
I just became depressed listening to him. F**k my degree.
You can tell he was a little bit nervous. Honestly the guy did nothing wrong, and there was nothing he said that was so outlandish. You can tell he just ran out of words. But on the real, he still should have stuck to his original speech even if he was going to say what other people have said. Better repeat what others said, then this snafu.
What kind of graduation was this> Was it high school, grade school, day care? I know this was not college. And btw, what the hell was he talking about?..... "I had a thought, thoughts are so important...bla bla bla"
what. the fuhhc?
wow, he's nuts. at least he could have prepared a speech...why is making yourself look stupid -funny? he should have just sang a song or something anything but this.
This ninja spent 10 mins rambling on and on about "thoughts" he sounds so stupid its pitiful. You can tell he wasn't prepared @ all. Why even show up if you don't know what you're going to say. This was so embarrassing. Dang
i like his acting roles he chooses well ummmm ok

Sup with that ish on his head follow me @lifewithramon
I'm gonna need MTO to learn the difference between IMPROV (as in *** for IMPROVisation) and IMPROVE.
Did this dude say "Martha Lutha King" LMAO That is just ashame......bawaha
this was extremely bad
What da heezy.... cuz must have gotten one of them package. Gosta b on that *** naked.
Don't tell me he graduated from a HBCU
ROFL I'm surprised nobody to pull him off the stage.
he was terrible.
hahaha...this is bloody embarrassing. it's painful to watch. *watches again*
Im not even watching it. Because just by reading the words it sounds terrible and boring. He really act like how he did in why did i get married. Smh
Most graduation speeches are BS anyway, so his fit in.
Why he's trying to sound like a white guy... if he was smart he wouldn't even be in the building ...negro sit ur ghetto *** down u ain't no smart white man ...
LMAO MTO u guys are hilarious
YES DUDE WAS ON SOMETHING
i am turned off
He look like he bored to be there and can't think of *** to say and just saying any old thing just to hurry and pass the time..
He did GRREEAT!!
....bless his heart.
@ the 5:38 mark he said martha lutha king
his name is MARTIN...lol
I never cared for him as an actor. He seemed like a "know it all, I'm so smooth" pain. And, this video shows it all. I could give a better speech than him.
Where's the hook and the clown from Apollo? Yank him, please.
WTF IS THIS FOO'?!!! MTO YALL SUM DUMBOS FOR PUTTING THIS *** UP!
WoW! Not my Richard...SMH
What in the world! Shameful.
I FEEL REALLY BAD FOR HIM >WOW< AND HE'S A REALLY GREAT ACTOR SMDH
*** I FELL ASLEEP ON THIS BS.... I'M BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NEXT!!
I want to watch it, but I don't think I have the strength to see another black man make a fool of himself.
MTO is so dumb!!! The funny part is that your writer (MTO) said that he looked up a word called IMPROVE!!!
But he actually said he looked up a word called IMPROV!!! MTO's staff is dumber than a bag of rocks. FOH...
These students were receiving a doctorate degree & this is what they had to listen to? This *** was for a middle school graduation. He should've called out sick instead of standing there giving disclaimers about how his speech would suck, and it did.
I have to agree with whoever said he on that *** naked fa real fa real!
Wow! That's crazy anyways he might of been nervous.
D@mn UMUC! I'm glad I go to Strayer... And, WTF is an improv?
Just goes to show u can't hire a blackman to do a white mans job!
I LIKE HOW HE PULLED MARTIN LUTHER KING OUT HE'S ***...LOL
I'm with MTO. Y was HE asked? Of all people! Of all actors. Y him?! Yeah he dropped th ball which is strange. He. Is clearly intimidated by all the intelligence surrounding him. Wow
did he even got to college!!!!!!!
Just One Thought", and he would have changes his mind about doing this so-called speech!!!! LMAO
MTO (LATE AS USUAL , IF THIS STORY WAS ON TIME I WOULD OF THOUGHT SOMETHING WAS WRONG) ANYWAYS...HE'S UNATTRACTIVE. HE MADE HIMSELF LOOK LIKE A COON *** FOOL WHO AIN'T EVER DONE *** OR ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING. I SWEAR ! ***.
he look dumb as hell in that first pic
i didnt listen cuz of the heads up mto staff - thx
Karma's a B*TCH u arrogant mudDUCK!
***. That's why I hate public speaking! Nerves will kill you everytime. Being an actor you would think his nerves wouldnt get the best of him. But I guess when you have to use your own words its different. He should read the speech he wrote regardless. Another point, this isnt a race issue either dumb *** racist people on this site! The WHITE SPEAKERS at my graduation was horrible speakers just like the valendictorian who graduated Magna *** Laude---he really sucked and had all of us confused!!!!
Stupid Niqqer, Stupid College! DUKE RULES!
omg i can't listen to the rest of it
i swear dude said "thoughts" about 50 dang times !
Lmao!! I have just 1 question, does he even know what the hell he's talking about??
suck like the *** movie he played in...next
***....did he go to college? Jeesh!!
Ok listen, Although I normally don't stick up for MTO, but when MTO wrote the
whole "IMPROV" thing, that WASN'T MTO's words! that is what RICHARD T. JONES
actually said!! he said "So, this is gonna be good, I'm glad I looked up a word
called IMPROV cause that's what's gonna happen here" he said this after he was
explaining how the other speakers said all of the quotes he was gonna use.(4:39
So this time MTO wasn't complete idiots...
Note: MTO if you are gonna quote someone put QUOTATION marks around it so that
we know it isn't you, but someone else' words. #justsayin
That the direct result of the powers that be becoming so complacent as to think a few hours spent before a movie camera qualifies you for anything including addressing college graduates. He himself pointed same out at the end of his speech. So who really is to blame here?
THESE COMMENTS R HILLARIOUS!
Wow... wow... wow... wow... How many pregnant pauses can you have in one speech?
who gives a *** about UMD anyway?!!
they're lucky they got anyone to speak...
Im sooOOoo embarrassed for him I think I wanna cry!!!! YTF didnt he keep it *** if he didnt have *** to say???? And what is SOO hard about giving an inspirational speech??? I think he was on the lil blue pill!! They needed to get a hook and haul his *** of that stage!!! *Hides face in embarrassment*
BWA HA HA HA HA!!! LMFAO AT "Brilliant Thought" WTF?? He couldn't just speak from the heart and talk about success? accomplishments? and so on? WHAT AN IDIOT!!!
YO MTO...THIS IS THE FUNNIEST SH*T! BAR NONE! I HAVE NEVER LAUGHED SO HARD IN MY LIFE! AND THE COMMENTS ON HERE ARE PRICELESS! I LOVE YOU MTO!!!
OMG I JUST CANT!! I GOT A "THOUGHT" Richard T. Jones go jumoff a bridge, cuz u SUCK!!!
He said "civil rights" WTF? where did that come from?
HE DOESN'T EVEN WANT TO BE UP THERE SPEAKING!!!!
Did he just say Martha Luther King
This is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.
University of Maryland is a great school. Why al the criticism? Is it because there is jealousy that people are doing things with their lives? Please. I didn't watch the video and will not watch it. Whether it was boring or not giving speeches are hard for some people. At least he got up there and spoke.
This speech happened two weeks ago and I know because I was there live and in person. All I'm gonna say is, "I STILL don't know what the message was." #whatsthepointcauseim issedit...ohright...thecheck#
he aint have *** prepared. how u gonna be a grad speaker and not have a speech lol
