Last week the Internet was divided over 18 year-old Keziah Daum’s decision to wear a “Chinese dress” to her high school prom.
Some people were angry and upset by Daum’s choice of dress, labelling it “cultural appropriation”.
Cultural appropriation is a sociological concept that deals with the adoption of the elements of a “minority” culture by members of the “dominant” culture.
The dress created a fierce debate, with some people deeming it insensitive and others citing the controversy as an example of “political correctness” gone mad.
Daum defended her choice, saying “it’s a f****** dress”.
While the debate is still ongoing, both camps have begun to see the funny side.
People have taken to mocking the tweet that started the whole thing. Posted by @jare_bare, the tweet read: “My culture is NOT your goddamn prom dress."
In a series of hilarious parodies, the phrase has been applied to a wide range of unusual garments and situations, providing some much needed comic relief to the saga.
