Charleston Shooter’s Sister Whines About Ruined Wedding, Asks For Money

Sometimes it is just hard to believe the gall of some people. Amber Roof, the sister of Dylann Roof, is very upset about the fact that her brother totally ruined her wedding by scheduling his bloody massacre for the very same day. AND IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE HER SPECIAL DAY, OK!

Having had to cancel the wedding, Roof and her fiancé Michael tried to crowdfund some money on GoFundMe in order to recoup expenses and “send them on their dream honeymoon.”

As many of you know Michael and I had to abruptly cancel our wedding day, due to the tragedy that occurred in Charleston. June 21st was suppose to be the happiest day of our lives. It is the day every girl dreams of, it was the day we dreamed of. We had each other, we have the perfect venue, and we had our vows ready to be read. We were ready! We had planned out every detail for months and months. It was going to be the PERFECT day!

Our wedding day was suppose to be the most important and special day of our lives. It was suppose to start our lives together with our new family. Our day was the exact opposite. Our wedding day was full of sorrow, pain, and shame, tainted by the actions of one man…

We cancelled our wedding to protect our family and mourn the lives of those lost…

In light of the media attention towards the page, and the slew of negative comments on it, which the couple were allegedly deleting, it has since been taken down.

I mean, I get it — it probably really sucks that your brother ruined your wedding day by murdering nine people. I’m sure you’re upset. But that is the kind of upset you keep to yourself, or maybe talk to your therapist about. You do not shout it on the internet and ask people for money, because then you look like an asshole. That is in incredibly poor taste. Because really, in the grand scheme of things, the people we need to be giving sympathy to and donating money towards are the families of those who died.

I’m glad she took it down, and I hope she learns a lesson about graciousness in the process. Given that they raised $1500, one hopes that they choose to donate all of it to the AME, rather than just 10 percent. She may also want to consider saving up for charm school.
