This girl dumped her boyfriend because he said her prom dress was too revealing — and the internet is here for it


Madison Witham, a high school sophomore, posted a photo on Twitter of an exchange between her and her boyfriend in which she showed him her prom dress and he called her a “slut.”
She responded by dumping him.
People on Twitter made an extra effort to show her their support.

When prom-related plans fail to be anything less than perfect — the prom group falling through, realizing your dress is all wrong the night before the dance, getting a date who doesn’t understand what a “corsage” is — it can often seem a lot worse than it really is.

So, when Madison Witham, a sophomore at Lakeland High School, showed a picture of her prom dress to her boyfriend and his response was to tell her that it made her look like a “slut,” it would have been easy for Witham to lose faith in prom (and relationships) altogether.

But this is 2018. Thus, Witham dealt with her boyfriend in the most 2018 of ways — by dumping him, screenshotting him, and posting their text exchange to Twitter (with his name blurred out), so that everyone else could drag him.

Someone even offered to replace her original prom date:

If you need someone to give you a great night and treat you the way you deserve let me know. You deserve better than that. Respect.

Witham told INSIDER that she was surprised about the response she received from her boyfriend (who, for the record, is now her ex), because it was so crass, but said that he had a history of being controlling.

“I put it on Twitter just to expose him and [show] how mean he was to me,” Witham told INSIDER. “I was so surprised when I saw that it went viral because I did not even mean for it to go viral.”

Whatever your opinion on prom or Twitter exposés may be, there’s a pretty good lesson here for everyone — when your prom date shows you their outfit, try not to immediately call them a derogatory, sexist term like “slut.” And, in the event that someone …read more
