NEWSFLASH! Prom “proposals’ have been a “thing” for a while now, but apparently there’s a new trend forming that includes watermelons & KFC!
Social media has allowed ‘the world’ to become a part of the latest fad where teens create elaborate proposals for their intended prom date and between the months of April through June, photos related to prom season flood the net… however recently the “cutesy” tone has taken a bizarre turn!
Now, among the kids using ornate, theatrical, and thoughtful ways to ask their fellow classmates to prom, several have chosen to employ racist epithets and offensive cultural stereotypes…. and now they’re all going viral.
More photos + details below…
The teen above holds a sign which reads ‘will u b my nigga for prom?’ after gifting his date with a watermelon and a gallon of kool-aid.
Others have followed suit regardless of color…
I don’t get the joke, but apparently it’s only made for 17 year olds.
Whatever the case, there appears to be an increase in lack of sensitivity and judgment, and it begs the need to ask a few necessary questions about the state of today’s ‘Promposals”.
Many have hit the tweets in outrage about several of the viral photos…
What do you think of this new ‘Promposal’ trend?
