Twitter is currently buzzing about the teenage girl from the Bahamas who arrived at her prom in an ambulance and “woke up” when she was kissed by her Prince Charming.
The grand entrance of Ashvonn Russell at her prom has the internet blowing up, and photos of the night have been retweeted over 7,000 times.
Russell entered a “Best Entrance” contest for Prom and strived to come up with something unique. Her date, Johnny Auguste, was immediately on board with the idea.
Says Russell of her ability to think outside of the box, “This is evident in all of my paintings and drawings which are mostly inspired by fairy tales,” she said. “Sleeping Beauty with a modern twist captured my interest for my prom entrance.”
Although a lot of folks around the world liked Russell’s entrance, the teen also received a lot of criticism for her idea, according to BuzzFeed.
Many of the local residents as well as users on Twitter were not shy about voicing their anger for Russell’s use of the ambulance. Alexei Beltyukov said that it’s been said that she used the ambulance for something silly when the emergency vehicle might have been needed for an actual emergency according to MTV.
“My hope for this theme was genuinely and solely to win best entrance by my unique style of entry and not for some of the negative attention and exposure it has received,” she said.
When asked where she obtained the use of the ambulance, Russell declined to answer.
