High School Principal Plagiarizes Speech From Ashton Kutcher

A principal at a West Virginia has been accused of plagiarizing Ashton Kutcher in his speech to the school's graduating class. 

Principal Kenny DeMoss says he didn't mean to use someone else's work and has issued a statement saying he should have cited his sources in the May 23 speech, noting the ideas were his own.

He wrote, "I did not get all my ideas from Ashton. Format yes, thoughts and ideas were from my heart," adding that he's upset the speech has stolen the focus from graduating students. 

A graduate posted a video to Facebook that spliced DeMoss' speech withKutcher's 2013 Nickelodeon Teen Choice Awards speech. The speeches used similar wording and at times featured identical phrasing.
