Most high school students look forward to their prom for months, but a North Carolina student said she was kicked out of her senior prom because of what she was wearing.
Cherryville High School senior Shafer Rhupard decided to wear something different.
Instead of a gown, she wore red pants, a black dress shirt, a hat and black shoes.
She said she wasn't on the dance floor for five minutes, when her senior prom ended abruptly. "A teacher tapped me on the shoulder. She had a problem with what i was wearing. I thought it was because of the hat or the leather jacket and I was like well I'll take those off and she was like no, it' the pants," said Rhupard.
Which school dress code was she actually violating? That's what Rhupard and her mother are trying to figure out.
News crews reached out to school officials for comment, but staff and students are currently on spring break.
