A 12-year-old girl has been forced to drop out of a chess tournament because she was wearing an ‘improper’ and ‘seductive’ dress.

The chess champion was told in the middle of the second round of the competition that her clothing was a ‘temptation from a certain angle far, far away’ and that she must change.


 

But the girl – who was taking part in the National Scholastic Chess Championship 2017 in Putrajaya, Malaysia – felt ‘harassed and humiliated’ after the comments by the tournament’s chief arbiter.

 

Now her mother, who said a similar incident happened just months ago, is seeking an apology from the competition chief.

 

Asking to remain anonymous, she told MailOnline: ‘My daughter is very upset.

‘When it happened before, it was because a parent didn’t like what she was wearing. So this time I made sure the dress was proper enough.’
She added that she was ‘very mad’ when her daughter was chastised in the second round of the competition – especially since she’d won the first round.
