Keziah Daum, an 18-year-old student from Utah, became the subject of a massive online debate in recent weeks for wearing a Chinese dress to her prom night. Reactions to the issue ranged from accusations of cultural appropriation (from Asian Americans) to praises for cultural appreciation (from social media users in China).
While both sides have expressed their strong opinion on the matter, there are also those who decided to take a light-hearted approach to the sensitive issue by poking fun at the phrase that started it all.
Using memes, netizens have taken to social media to share their own take on the phrase “My culture is NOT your goddamn prom dress!” Check out some of the best ones below:
