THIS MORNING WE'VE LEARNED THE MAN, POLICE SAY, STRUCK BRAD PITT IN THE FACE AT A MOVIE PREMIERE HAS A HABIT OF CAUSING TROUBLE FOR CELEBRITIES.

THIS IS THE STORY OF A PRANKSTER WHO WENT ONE PRANK TOO FAR, WHEN HE ATTENDED THE PREMIERE OF ANGELINA JOLIE'S LASTEST MOVIE AND LUNGED AT HER FIANCE, BRAD PITT.

YEARBOOK EDITS-2SH-VO


THIS MORNING SCHOOL DISTRICT OFFICIALS ARE STANDING BY THEIR DECISION TO EDIT SOME HIGH SCHOOL YEARBOOK PHOTOGRAPHS.

IT'S A DECISION THAT HAS DRAWN MUCH CRITICISM IN UTAH AND AROUND THE COUNTRY.

A SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT SAYS THERE WAS A LARGE SIGN ON PICTURE DAY CLEARLY NOTIFYING STUDENTS THERE PHOTOS COULD BE ALTERED IF THEIR CLOTHES VIOLATED THE DRESS CODE.

ONE STUDENT WAS DEVASTATED TO SEE HER V-NECK BLOUSE BECOME A SQUARE-NECK SHIRT - NOT BECAUSE OF THE FASHION, BUT IT COVERED HER TATTOO, WHICH READS "I'M ENOUGH THE WAY I AM."

IT WAS HER WAY OF OVERCOMING AN ABUSIVE HOME AS A CHILD. Return to index of stories...


YEARBOOK EDITS-SOTVO


"And for them to cover that up, I don't feel like you are enough for them to discourage you of your body and shame you."

PARENTS AND STUDENTS SAY THERE IS A DOUBLE STANDARD.

THE SUPERINTENDENT ADMITS THAT MISTAKES WERE MADE AND NOT ALL PHOTOS WERE EDITED CONSISTENTLY. Return to index of stories...

TODAY SHOW TEASE-OC-SOTVO


COMING UP ON THE TODAY SHOW ---

A SPECIAL INTERVIEW WITH FACEBOOK ROYALTY. MARK ZUCKERBERG'S WIFE PRISCILLA.

Priscilla Chan/Savannah Guthrie verbate:

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE: I've seen you described as the first lady of Facebook. I've seen you described as the Kate Middleton of Silicon Valley. On a scale of one to ten, with ten being extremely cringe inducing and one being sort of flattering, where does that fall?

PRISCILLA CHAN: Oh, we're pretty close to a ten. That's just-- that's not how I see myself. I see myself as someone who's learning to work with kids and work as a doctor and I-- I do a lot of unglamorous things in my d-- everyday life. And it's worth it to me.
