But Anna Hayes was not prepared for what she got from none other than her dad who gave her major grief over her prom date.
He basically disowned her, called her prom date a subhuman and went
on to cancel her phone and insurance if that’s how she wanted to be
Anna posted the text exchange between her and her dad after he saw
pictures of them (Anna and her prom date, Phillip) on facebook.
He was having none of that inter-racial association
Cancelled her phone and insurance too
According to Anna, she knows her dad is racist but his reaction to seeing her with Phillip came as a rude shock to her.
‘He has told me that if I ever dated a black guy that I will and would be dead to him,’ she told BuzzFeed. ‘I stood my ground for what I believe in. He has called me several horrible things before.’
Anna also said it hurt more as she could not understand how someone would hate another human just because of their skin colour.
She added that her mum was horrified and felt terrible about it all.
