Robert Marucci, an 18-year-old Florida teen, will be allowed back to school, officials said, after students protested his dismissal, which was allegedly for his participation in a Sean Cody film.
Earlier this week, a Redditor on the subreddit GayBros posted about Marucci:
He got severely bullied and, instead of helping him, the school will not let him graduate due to him causing a "campus disturbance". They suspended him for 10 days, which leads to an automatic FA (failure from absences). Several students planned to protest by wearing support shirts, making posters, and skipping a class. The principle is threatening to automatically expel any student who joins in.
I am still very closeted, and it hurts to hear friends and family think this guy is a sick and disturbed person...
Marucci said he turned to making gay adult films in order to help pay his family's bills.
Marucci's mother spoke with Local 6 News: "She (Dr. Sullivan) flat out told me that my son was expelled not just suspended, he was expelled due to his explicit, adult, lifestyle career."
The school will not say why Marucci was suspended but after the student's dismissal and protests by fellow students (who say the school threatened them as well) began making national headlines, he has been allowed back.
Said the school district's spokesperson: "In this particular case, we had an investigation, which is now complete, and the student is welcomed to come back to talk to Dr. Sullivan about his educational options."
