Dad disowns daughter for taking her black friend to prom

She admits her father has always been vocally racist, but not even she was expecting such a reaction.

In a shocking chain of messages, a father calls his daughter a ‘f*****g w**e’ and threatens to disown her because she took her black friend to prom.

Anna Hayes took to Facebook, to share the nasty messages she received from her father after he discovered she had chosen Phillip Freeman as her date to her school dance.

“We are done. I won’t be coming to your graduation. Nor will I pay for your college. Go live with the n***a,” reads the first two of a string of messages.

He proceeds to tell her she should never contact him again and even tells her to go to hell.

The teen, from Lake Village in Arkansas, admits her father has always been vocally racist, but not even she was expecting such a reaction.

"He is just a close friend and he's super cute so I asked him to go to prom with me," she told BuzzFeed. "He is a great guy, he's really funny."

It’s just a pity her father, whom she doesn’t live with and has reportedly had a strained relationship with since her parents’ divorce, never saw it that way.

“He has told me that if I ever dated a black guy, I will and would be dead to him.

“I stood my ground for what I believe in. He has called me several horrible things before.”

“This just hurt more because I cannot believe how anyone can hate someone they don't even know because of their skin colour.”

While Anna’s post angered many and received sympathy from some, others called her an attention-seeker and mocked her.

 

But the brunette hit back in another Facebook post saying, “There is a peaceful and classy way to fight for what you believe in. The whole point of this post was to show that, sadly, in 2017 racism is still around.”
