Michigan Teen Received The “Carrie” Treatment

by Yesha Callahan

Whitney Kropp, a sophomore at Ogemaw Heights High School in West Branch, Mich. recently received the “Carrie” treatment at her high school. No, not Carrie Bradshaw from Sex And The City, but Carrie White from the horror film. Whitney thought it was an honor to find out she was voted as the homecoming queen, but unfortunately it was all a prank pulled off by a bunch of asshole teenagers.

“I never thought I would be part of it because, really, it’s just for, like, the big popular people,” Kropp, 16, told NBC News’ Kevin Tibbles on TODAY.

When she found out it was a prank, the students did their own version of “They’re all gonna laugh at you”. She was greeted in the hallway with laughs and finger-pointing. The guy who was voted with her withdrew altogether. The tormenting eventually made its way to Facebook and other social media outlets. Whitney’s mother said her daughter has been picked on before, but this incident had gone too far.

In support of Whitney, and to show up her bullies, a Facebook page was made in honor of her. She’s received words of encouragement from strangers and has over 4,000 likes. Many people have shared their own stories of bullying.

“I am so proud of this young lady ((((You GO, Girl))))), her family and the awesome community we share! It’s high time we ALL take a stand against bullies. They come in all sizes, ages and social arenas. Be Kind ALWAYS,” Ginger Warren.

It never ceases to amaze me the extent people will go to bully someone else. I would hope the teens involved in this will receive a suitable punishment. Whitney has not only received an outpouring of support online, but people in her community have donated a prom dress and free hair styling.

    I’m not sure you read the post correctly. She was voted Homecoming Queen. That’s doesn’t automatically imply self nomination.

    Odd, I was just watching the movie last night, further fueling my occasional misanthropy.

    I hope she gets over this and goes on to be an amazing person so that these little snotbuckets can look back with real regret at how they treated her (and others).

    Don’t they have anything better to do?

    IKR? All that energy and effort just to humiliate someone. They must have some ugly souls.

    Bullies are a bunch of little losers. Good that people are supporting this girl – I hope she goes far in life and doesn’t let the little snotbuckets of the world determine her path.

    Really kids these days have nothing better to do but to humiliate each other. That is a dang shame and retarded as hell. Wow smh! I think the principal should actually award her as the homecoming queen! That would show them a big eff you! lol
