Tammy Day of Killeen, Texas went all out to try to secure her daughter’s prom queen crown. She even put out a billboard near Harker Heights High school that said, “Vote Brand Day For Prom Queen!”

Now Tammy claims her daughter, who did not win prom queen, is being harassed for the billboard.

ABCnews.com is reporting, that Day was just trying to give her daughter, who was diagnosed with mild cerebral palsy from the waist down at age 3, a shining moment, “They may consider it overboard, but I don’t look at it like that,” she said. “I look at it like it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make memories …This is her last prom. She’s never going to be in high school again and I wanted her to have the best moment possible during her last school year.”

But fall out from the billboard has resulted in teasing of Brandy Day. Tammy added, “It’s just such a shame because the ones that are doing it don’t know her background,” Day said. “She’s brushing it off … she’s not showing it if she is upset. She is used to absorbing pain and hiding it.”

“Win or lose, she’s still a star,” Day said.

Brandy is headed to Baylor University to pursue a career in pediatrics, her mother said.
