Kids these days.
Just as it’s no longer enough to simply ask someone to marry you with a viral video and media circus, asking someone to prom also requires a creative—and perhaps twisted—approach. One California teenager named Stephanie threw down the prom-posal gauntlet when she got her boyfriend arrested as part of the elaborate plot.
Not only did she get her boyfriend Dayveon arrested, but she arranged for it all to go down while they were at school—you know, a normally safe space for teens.
Some are calling Stephanie racist for getting her unarmed black boyfriend arrested, but ignorant teenagers the world over are throwing their support behind her misguided plan, and she’s sticking it to the haters by retweeting many of her fans.
😂😂😂Ppl are really so mad at Stephs promposal and its so fucking funny

If this has left you inspired to come up with a crafty prom-posal of your own, there’s an entire Pinterest board dedicated to the practice. You, too, can DIY an awful day.
