While he was visiting a school in St. Louis called Vashon High School, in 2016, he encountered something he normally doesn't have to deal with in other areas. And he was bothered.  He was so disturbed by the occurrence that he stoped his entire speech. He couldn't go on with the amount of disrespect he was receiving from them. He couldn't believe that they didn't care.  All many of them wanted to do was crack jokes throughout the important words he was trying to share.
