An 18-year-old senior at Tennessee Gibson County High School was kicked out of prom for wearing what faculty called an “offensive and inappropriate” dress, The Tennessean reports.
Texanna Edwards wore a dress that symbolized the Confederate flag.
“We asked why they thought that, but they kept saying the same thing over and over,” she told The Tennessean. “We kept asking people walking inside — black and white — and everyone said they loved it. Two black women even went off on the principal. They were upset with the principal. No one was upset with me.”
Edwards said she didn’t consult the administration because she “wore rebel flags” throughout her time at the high school.
“I didn’t ask for approval because I didn’t think I needed to,” she said.
Edwards said one teacher told “it was a a bad idea,” but she thought “she only said that because it would offend people.”
“..I asked a bunch of people before I had the dress made and they all loved the idea,” she said.
