CEO fired after publicly ridiculing Tennessee teen over his prom dress
FRANKLIN, Tenn. — A CEO who publicly ridiculed a male high school senior who wore a dress to prom with his boyfriend has been fired by his Tennessee company.
Cell phone video taken Saturday and posted to several social media platforms shows Dalton Stevens, a senior at Franklin High School, being ridiculed by a man later identified as Sam Johnson, the then-CEO of a local telemedicine company, VisuWell.
“I very much view clothes as genderless,” said Stevens.
Stevens wanted to make a statement for his senior year, so he decided on bold formal attire.
