CEO mocks boy for wearing prom dress

A CEO who was filmed publicly mocking a male high school senior who chose to wear a dress to prom with his boyfriend has been fired.

In a video posted to various social media platforms on Saturday, Sam Johnson, the CEO of telemedicine company Visuwell, is seen ridiculing Dalton Stevens at the Harpeth Hotel in Franklin, Tennessee.

As Mr Stevens and his boyfriend, Jacob Geittman, took pictures outside the hotel, the couple says that Mr Johnson approached and mocked him for his choice of clothing – a floor-length red gown.
