UTAH — A senior at a high school in Utah is being called a “closet racist” for wearing a Chinese cheongsam dress to prom after she tweeted photos from her big night.
Keziah Daum, 18, posted the photos on April 22 with the caption: “PROM.”
Since, it’s been retweeted over 5,900 times and has elicited many angry comments.
But many are also coming to Daum’s defense.
Daum told Insider she saw the dress in a thrift store several weeks before prom and knew she wanted to wear it.
“I bought the dress because I thought it was beautiful and admired the beauty of the culture,” she told Insider.
She’s refusing to apologize and addresses that in several tweets.
