Tennessee girl told to ‘cover up’ at prom

MARYVILLE (WATE) – A Maryville High Schooler’s prom didn’t go quite like she expected when she was forced to wear a jacket over her dress. A teacher told her she needed to cover up the sweetheart neckline because it was too revealing.

A friend posted on Facebook saying that she cried in the bathroom as a result, and the administrator referred to her as a “big girl.”

Sharon Anglim, a representative of Maryville City Schools say there is no specific prom dress policy in place. No other girls at the event were called out for similar reasons.
