A white girl wanted to ask her black boyfriend, Davyeon, to prom in an unforgettable way. And in order to do so, she had him arrested, at school, in front of their peers.
Innocent Black teenagers and grown men being arrested and even killed for absolutely nothing, this was actually rather insensitive, potentially traumatic and completely oblivious. But the girl, who goes by Salty Stephanie on Twitter, didn’t see it that way. Instead, she tweeted about the whole ordeal, with police, hearts and crying laughing emojis.
Once he got to the police car, there was a sign in the backseat that read, “Davyeon, Can I cuff you at prom?”
Judging by his smile in the first photo set, Davyeon doesn’t seem too bothered by the whole thing; but then again, he’s a teenager too.
What do you think about this idea? Do you think she took it too far or was this a just a brilliantly creative plan?
If you were Davyeon’s parents, how would you react?
