(And the haters prom isn't open to "any junior or senior," it's open to any straight junior or senior.
The haters' Facebook page currently has 54 members, down from its pre-media-shitstorm high of 61. The Facebook page backing an inclusive prom—Support the Sullivan High School Prom for All Students—currently has 28,063 members.
