NC Teen Kicked Out of Prom For Wearing Pants
A North Carolina high school senior says school officials kicked her out of her prom last weekend for wearing a pair of red skinny jeans, Charlotte, N.C., CBS-affiliate WBTV reports.
When Shafer Rupard attended her Cherryville High School senior prom at Cherryville Golf & Country Club last weekend, a teacher allegedly told the student she had a problem with what she was wearing - pants.
"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 says she was only at the prom for about five-minutes before getting the boot.
Rupard’s mother, Shawn McQuaige, takes with the teacher’s alleged decision to boot her daughter, and says wearing pants to prom is just fine.
"It’s just the way she’s always been and she wanted to feel comfortable in her own skin," McQuaige said.
