Columbia University Student Carries Her Mattress On Stage At Graduation To Protest Her Dismissed Rape Case

no title

Emma Sulkowicz made headlines when she began carrying her mattress around Columbia University to protest the school's mishandling of her rape case.

And on Tuesday that protest culminated when — despite earlier rulings against it — she was allowed to carry the mattress across the stage as she graduated.

This is the culmination of a protest/senior performance art project entitled Mattress Performance (Carry That Weight) in which Emma must have the mattress with her whenever she is on university property.

Emma filed a complaint against another Columbia student in April 2013 for sexually assaulting her in August 2012.

When the University found the student "not responsible," Emma took her case to the NYPD, who chose not to pursue charges.

She has since filed a Title IX lawsuit against the school.

Stephen Colbert Gives A Hilarious Graduation Speech At Wake Forest University And Even Jokes About The Great Dress Debate!

Filed under: Stephen ColbertFunnySchool

no title

Leave it to Stephen Colbert to bring some lighthearted comedy and all the laughter in a somewhat dark speech.

LOLz!

But all jokes aside, the comedian took the honor of giving the Wake Forest University commencement speech on Monday in North Carolina.

The former Colbert Report host had some pretty wise words to pass onto the class of 2015!

[ Video: Maya Rudolph Impersonates Beyonce During Commencement Speech ]

He said at one point in his speech:

"I just spent many years learning to do one thing really well. I got so comfortable with that place, that role, those responsibilities, that it came to define how I saw myself; but now part of my life is over. It's time to say goodbye to the person we've become … and to make some crucial decisions in becoming who we're going to be. For me, I'll have to figure out how to do an hour-long show every night. And you at some point will have to sleep. I am told the Adderall wears off eventually…

I hope you find the courage to decide for yourself what is right and what is wrong, and then please, expect as much of the world around you. Try to make the world good according to your standards."

Beautiful.

Listen to his funny address (below)!
