It’s that time of year again folks—prom season is in full swing. If you haven’t learned the hard way already, Friday and Saturday night dinners at places like Maggiano’s or Cheesecake Factory should be put on the back-burner for the foreseeable future as mobs of high schoolers take over the restaurants.
Prom really is one of the most memorable times of anyone’s high school career. So it’s a bummer that one teen was fat-shamed after posting her prom photos to social media.
Madison was beyond excited to go to the dance with her boyfriend, Tre, whom she calls the love of her life. The couple looked like a million bucks, as Madison rocked a sparkly pink gown, and Tre sported the accents to match. Not to mention, he looked like he couldn’t be more impressed by his date.
The night was going to be perfect, until a stranger decided to put her words where they didn’t belong—retweeting Madison’s photo saying, “Wow, he loves you even tho you’re fat.”
As if she didn’t already know, Madison’s got herself a good man by her side. Tre joined the Twitter conversation saying, “Your not fat baby. God made you just for me. Your perfect.”
Tre’s power-packed response has since ignited a viral storm of praise for the young man who makes his lady feel beautiful in her own skin—even though she’s not the model-industry standard, size 0.
He later added, “Everyone is beautiful. God made us in his image, he makes no mistakes.”
“Put on your new self, having been created according to God in righteousness, holiness and truth.” Ephesians 4:24
Bullies have a way of making this world sour. It’s refreshing to see young people taking a stand against what isn’t True, and taking care of one another.
Despite the nasty remarks, Madison and Tre had an awesome prom night. Not even Satan’s schemes could keep them down.
