That didn’t stop one South African man from staging one of the most awkward proposals in history, asking his grieving girlfriend’s hand in marriage right at her father’s funeral, with his casket in the background. The shocking scene was filmed by another attendant who subsequently posted it on TikTok, where it immediately went viral, sparking a heated debate among users of the popular video-sharing platform.

Was he being disrespectful or did he want to show his support for the grieving woman during one of the worst times in her life?

One thing’s certain though….SHE SAID YES.
