Ellie Kemper is trending on Twitter after the Internet discovered she was Queen of the “Veiled Prophet Ball.” “In 1999, actor Ellie Kemper was named the Queen of Love and Beauty at the Veiled Prophet Ball, a debutante ball held in St. Louis, Missouri, which was founded by wealthy White elites in 1878 and ’emphasized the existing power structure’, according to The Atlantic’s Scott Beauchamp.”
