Ocean’s mother Karen Easdown, 51, said: “Ocean was being bullied and she kept getting excluded.
“They excluded her over a nose ring, then over her socks.
“Then they said her eyelashes were too long – but who doesn’t wear false eyelashes?”Normal schoolgirls, love. Schoolgirls who don't have mothers happy to send them off to the halls of learning looking like....well, like your daughter.
Like someone rejected from 'My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding; for being too trashy-looking...
“First of all they told her she would be allowed to go to prom as long as she didn’t go to the end-of-year barbecue.
“But now they’ve suddenly changed their mind and told me she can’t go.
“I’ve already spent £155 on her dress.
“Her twin sister is going (Ed: She's called 'Unity', it seems...) and they have always done everything together – but not this.
“They’ve told us if she does turn up she will be arrested.”Hmmm, just 'changed their minds', eh? For no good reason?
In an email to Ocean’s mother, seen by The Argus, the school said: “I wrote to you earlier in the year to clarify our expectations for Year 11 prom.
“This is by invitation only and the governors and school uphold the right to exclude any student who does not comply with our criteria.
“Unfortunately we have not seen an improvement in Ocean’s behaviour, therefore and with regret, we have decided to exclude Ocean from the prom. Action
“We would appreciate your co-operation in ensuring Ocean does not attempt to enter the premises or the security company will be informed and appropriate action taken.”So nothing whatsoever to do with her appearance, and everything to do with her behaviour? Colour me shocked.
And...how dim do you have to be to show the newspaper reporter the email that blows your story out of the water?
