A teen in Utah posted her prom photos on Twitter and set off a social media storm that highlighted how ridiculous the American Left has become.
Some Asian-Americans complained that the dress was a disrespectful and exploitative example of cultural appropriation.
One guy really got his panties in a bunch, tweeting “My culture is NOT your g****mn prom dress.”
Other Asian-Americans said the criticism was silly, a view that was repeated by many people living in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, where the dress was proclaimed a victory for Chinese culture.
One tweeted, “I am very proud to have our culture recognized by people in other countries.”
Other Asians pointed out how dumb the whole idea of “cultural appropriation” is, noting that they wear Western fashions and celebrate Christmas and Halloween.
A Beijing-based writer and fashion blogger said it is rare these days to see Chinese women wearing this style dress and that, when you do, “She’s probably a waitress in a restaurant or a bride.”
