Malaysian girl, 12, is barred from a chess tournament after officials deemed her striped dress SEDUCTIVE and a ‘temptation”

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.
