Innocent Mistake or Attention-Seeking? 🤷

So, our protagonist wore her traditional African attire to a wedding in Germany, thinking it was appropriate for the 'dress to impress' dress code. She received compliments, but the bride and her mother were furious, accusing her of trying to outshine the bride. 😡 Things escalated in the office, with racial tensions and accusations of lacking remorse. She's now questioning if she's in the wrong. 🤔 Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...
