A 17-year-old girl from Alabama was shamed for her homecoming dress on Facebook—by adults.
Grace Brumfield, the girl in question, is a high school junior that spoke on some of the commentaries from adults that had strong feelings about her choice of dress.
In conversation with BuzzFeed, Brumfield’s school recently held their homecoming dance. She went with her boyfriend, Zach, wearing a dress that she had fashioned to slightly resemble Princess Diana’s “black revenge dress.”
“I had so many compliments on my dress, and it was our first homecoming since Covid... I made so many great memories, and the environment was just out-of-this-world amazing,” Brumfield told the outlet.
Regrettably, Brumfield’s jovial homecoming experience came to a sudden stop after her boyfriend’s mom shared their pictures to a Facebook group called Sunflowers and Daisies, who she said told her there were around “32,000 likes” with lovely comments and “negative” ones.
Brumfield said that she felt saddened by the negative responses because she was “confident” in her appearance that night, and she didn’t want that feeling to be “stolen” from her because others in life had picked on her.
She also said that she was “shocked” by how mean some of the comments were, especially because a majority of them were from women who “were mothers and grandmothers.”
The group administrators have since removed the Facebook post.
Taking to TikTok, Blumfield showed snaps of her photoshoot with her boyfriend as well as screenshots of some of the negative comments.
