Local coverage of everyone hating Derrick Martin, who got kicked out of his home for wanting to bring his boyfriend to prom. So everyone hates Constance because the school canceled prom, but even if the school didn't there may have been problems.

Also love the girl who says "It's not just his prom." Not just yours either. What entitlement.

So: the big thing after 11 years is the "sacred event" of prom, not graduation? And her father wants to Look out/stand up for" his family. That seems to mean protecting her from being in the same space with two attractive, well-behaved young men who aren't likely to get drunk and try to rape her. I wonder what the reaction would be if Derrick's boyfriend was of a different race.

It hurt to see him sitting alone on the curb. Hopefully, he does have some fellow students on his side.....other than his one girlfriend.
