More often than not, teenagers are, by nature immature. And often grossly naive about the world around them. If you haven’t had the pleasure of interacting with a teenager recently, then you may have forgotten this universal fact. But here’s a little something to remind you just how dense these young ones can be.
A teenage girl wanted to ask her boyfriend, Davyeon, to prom in an unforgettable way. And in order to do so, she had him arrested, at school, in front of their peers.
How clever, right?
With unarmed, innocent Black teenagers and grown men being arrested and even killed for absolutely nothing, this was actually rather insensitive, potentially traumatic and completely oblivious.
But the girl, who goes by Salty Stephanie on Twitter, didn’t see it that way. Instead, she tweeted about the whole ordeal, with police, hearts and crying laughing emojis.
Once he got to the police car, there was a sign in the backseat that read, “Davyeon, Can I cuff you at prom?”
I’ll give it to her, the sign is cute… in context. But wouldn’t some handcuffs placed in his locker or in his first period class, with that same sign, have done the trick?
I hope Stephanie’s parents didn’t know about this little plan. And I know if I were Davyeon’s parents, I would want to have a very sternly worded conversation with that little girl. I don’t think I have to explain the fear and humiliation one might feel being arrested in front of all of their classmates.
