Plus-Size Bully Battle
Community rallies around teen who became target of cyber-bullying after attempting to sell her plus-size prom dress on Facebook.

Kristen Layne, 18, decided to sell her junior prom dress through Facebook. The girl wore the gown to junior prom at White House High School last year. She said she chose the dress because it made her feel like a princess.

When she decided to sell the dress as she prepared for senior prom, Layne posted pictures of the gown on “For Sale in Sumner County, TN” – a group that allows members to advertise their products. Below the post, two men started making of her weight and looks.
