SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH: An American high school student's prom pictures have unwittingly sparked a "cultural appropriation" debate on social media, British broadcaster BBC reported on Monday (April 30).

On April 23, 18-year-old Twitter user Keziah, who is not Chinese, posted pictures of herself wearing a cheongsam, or qipao - a traditional Chinese dress - for her prom last week.
