The CEO of a telemedicine company in Tennessee has been fired after a video went viral of him harassing a teenage boy wearing a dress to prom.
Dalton Stevens,18, wore a bright red dress to his high school prom in Franklin Saturday.
A video recently surfaced and has gone viral of Sam Johnson, a CEO of a telehealth company, saw him at the Harpeth Hotel and allegedly began harassing him.

Sam Johnson has since been terminated, according to VisuWell.
“We unequivocally condemn the behavior exhibited by Sam Johnson in a recent video widely circulated on social media. After investigation, the matter and speaking to the individuals involved, the VisuWell BOD has chosen to terminate Mr. Johnson from his position as CEO, effective immediately,” the company released in a statement.
It has been reported that Stevens’ boyfriend Jacob Geittmann, is the one who “originally posted the video on TikTok and then reposted it on Twitter.” Geittmann said his boyfriend, Dalton, wore the dress to his senior prom to break the stigma of men wearing dresses. He looked absolutely stunning, everybody loved his outfit, and nobody had an issue with it.”
“We went to this hotel close to where we live and we got a lot of good photos and we were there for about an hour and right as we were about to leave, we’re standing outside in this little middle area with a bunch of buildings surrounding us. This man comes up and he’s about an inch away from my boyfriend and he says, ‘What are you wearing? And he’s like, ‘A dress, why? ‘Why are you wearing that? You shouldn’t be wearing that.” Geitmann added.
Geitmann says his boyfriend shot back by saying, “because I can, and I want to.” According to Geitmann, “Johnson went on and on and began throwing insults at him… ‘You look disgusting, you look ridiculous, you look like an idiot. Men shouldn’t be wearing this. ‘All this homophobic banter.”
Johnson spoke with news reporters saying that he did not harass Stevens and that his comments were ‘edited’ making him appear to be talking about the dress attire.
“I have no ill will towards anyone or their personal choices, so long as it does not harm me or my family,” Johnson added.
The video went viral, being viewed more than 1.2 million times.
