Twitter Is Super Pissed And Is Accusing A Teenage Girl Of Cultural Appropriation For Wearing A Chinese Dress To Prom

  • Keziah Daum, a senior at Woods Cross High School in Woods Cross, Utah, is facing backlash over her prom dress.
  • People are accusing the 18-year-old high school senior of cultural appropriation and racism because she wore a traditional Chinese dress.
  • Daum told INSIDER that she didn’t intend to be racist and she wore the dress because she liked the way it looks.

There’s nothing wrong with wanting your outfit to stand out at prom. Whether you wear a dress that shows off your heroes or your culture, a little bit of creativity can go a long way.

But some people think Keziah Daum, an 18-year-old senior at Woods Cross High School in Woods Cross, Utah, went too far with her prom dress, which was a traditional Chinese cheongsam dress.

Pictures of Daum posing in the dress alongside her friends went viral after she posted them on Twitter on April 22.

Daum said that she bought the dress from a thrift store in Salt Lake City, Utah, because she simply liked the way it looked. “I bought the dress because I thought it was beautiful and admired the beauty of the culture,” she said.

Although it wasn’t her intent, Daum’s original post got people talking.

Some people are accusing the teen of appropriating a culture that she’s not a part of.

“I hope everyone will be able to understand that I never intended any form racism. I love everyone. And I am going to stand my ground.”
