In all the rachet hell that plays out daily in blogs, on TV and on social media, this is a moment that has left us truly speechless. A bride decided to have her newborn baby participate in her wedding in a very unique way – by literally dragging the baby behind her on the train of her bridal gown.
The Internet, of course, went HAM on this couple who shared the photo on social media. Sigh. Comments ranged from “Call DHS” to “This must be fake” to “What in the holy rachet hell” – well, that was our response. Hit page 2 for the pic and the couple’s response to the photo of their happy day going viral.
The couple, Shona Carter and Jonathan Brooks of Ripley, Tennessee were apparently surprised by the response to their baby-dragging antics so they took to, where else, Facebook, to write this post:
“People questioning what we do, commenting all negative, and just doing the most. We good though we covered by the Blood which never loose its power,” she wrote. “So to the media, radio, news, and whomever else wanting to talk about what WE do here you go: Media Media I see how it works regardless the situation or purpose people gone have something negative to say! The answer is we do what we want when we want long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine and gone continue to be fine. Our 1 month old was awake and well secured on my train. Most important while yall got ya feelings in us we had our hearts in Christ which covers all!! So keep ya mouths running for it was just that Exclusive and Epic enough we made top blog way from small town Ripley, TN and the social media doing what they do, TALK!!!!”
Alrighty then. Well, all we can say is, we wish the Brooks’ the very best.
Do you think how people choose to get married is a couple’s personal business or what you share on social media becomes everybody’s business? Do you think that it’s ever OK to risk a child’s well-being for a certain theme? Talk about it!
