CHERRYVILLE, N.C. — A student at Cherryville High School said she was kicked out of senior prom for wearing red skinny jeans.
According to WBTV, Shafer Rupard and her friends went to prom on Saturday at the Cherryville Golf & County Club. After arriving, she was approached by a teacher and asked to leave the prom.
“The teacher tapped me on the shoulder and said she had a problem with what I was wearing,” Rupard told WBTV. “I thought it was because of the hat or the leather jacket and I was like well I’ll take those off and she was like ‘No, it’s the pants.”
Rupard called the decision “ridiculous.”
When Rupard’s mother asked school officials why her daughter was dismissed from the dance, she discovered there is no dress code for prom. She then showed the school’s assistant principal the code of conduct and prom invitation.
“She looked at it with me and she said you know what you’re right there is no dress code here,” the girl’s mother said.
The family has not received an apology from school officials. Administrators and school officials are on spring break this week.
