Emily Perry, a 16 year old teenager from Yorkshire, UK didn’t want to attend her school’s prom night as she suffers from crippling anxiety. However, after being persuaded by her parents, she gave it a go, only to be reduced to tears after a bully poured a whole jug of juice over her.
Everyone is quite aware of the high school drama. Nevertheless, we often forget about the deep psychological impact it leaves on us and take it lightly. Emily Perry looked stunning in her sequined dress for her prom night. Initially, she didn’t want to go because she suffers from extreme anxiety. Though, after being persuaded a great deal by her parents, she decided to give it a go, in hopes that she will enjoy the night.
But within two hours, her mom had to rush to the school, to pick her again. She was in deep shock as soon as she her daughter. Her daughter’s dress was covered in orange juice and with tears streaming down her face.
Needless to say, her mother Tracy was furious and wrote a detailed post on Facebook, highlighting the entire incident, including the two pictures of her daughter; the first in which she looked absolutely stunning in her dress posing for the camera, and the second, where her face and dress was covered in juice with tears on her face.
“This is my beautiful daughter, who suffers from anxiety whom we had to beg to go to the prom this evening. Two hours later, I collect her from the prom like this, heartbroken and in a state.”
“This ‘person’ thought it would be a good idea to pour a full jug of juice over her and soak her from head to toe. I hope one day someone humiliates and devastates her like she has done to my daughter.”
Ragging and bullying is still an extremely sensitive issue which is yet not fully understood by the school authorities and such similar and worse cases yet happen to children all over the world.
The post, since then, has gained a lot of attention, with people outpouring their support for the mother- daughter duo. They have responded with dozens of messages condemning the bully’s action.
Recalling the incident to the Daily Record, Tracy spoke, “its unbelievable what had happened, she has had words of support from all over the globe”.
The devastated teen has responded to the messages with a token of thank you for all the motivation and support she had been receiving. She wrote, “Wow, I just want to take the time out to thank each and every person that has gone out of the way to absolutely shower me with love and support. It’s greatly appreciated and I will most certainly be eternally grateful for the extremely unexpected outcome of this situation! I’ve had so much support”.
She further added: “The way that people have responded has absolutely overwhelmed me and has proven to me that I can get through everything and it hope that this makes me a stronger person.”
Not to spread more hate, Tracy and her daughter has decided to keep the name of the bully anonymous.
