Teen not allowed to attend homecoming dance because of her pantsuit outfit, goes viral

TAMPA, Fla. -- A Florida teenager wasn't allowed to attend her homecoming dance because she wore a jumper instead of a dress. That decision is sparking outrage with a community in Tampa, who say the rules need to be changed.

Jennie Ellis of "Jennie Ellis Photography" heard about the story and offered to give 17-year-old Darcy Krueger a free photo shoot so that something positive could come from the experience. The photos have since gone viral.

KGO reporters Reggie Aqui, Kristen Sze, and Kumasi Aaron discuss the controversy in the video above.
