Teen Accused of Appropriating Chinese Culture With Her Prom Dress

A high school senior has been slammed over a Chinese-style dress she wore to prom that has led to accusations of cultural appropriation.

Keziah Daum, 18, of Woods Cross High School in Utah, received backlash after posting photos from her prom, where she posed in a traditional Chinese dress.

“My culture is not your [expletive] prom dress,” read one furious tweet. Daum defended her dress choice saying she wore it to show “respect for all cultures.”
