During important events like a wedding, parents play an important part. Even just their mere presence already signifies their support to the union of their son or daughter. As such, they can’t also help but get emotional sometimes all throughout the whole ceremony.
However, this dad from China might have ultimately failed in containing his emotions after getting drunk.
In a video that went viral in various Chinese social media platforms, the dad pounces on the bride, and goes in for the kiss, and just starts snogging her in front of hundreds of people in Yancheng in eastern China’s Jiangsu province.
The bride can be seen struggling to escape and people in the wedding party are yelling at him to stop at the Yancheng Wuzhou International Plaza.
We can only imagine the embarrassment his son must have felt while all this fiasco is going on. As the footage went viral with over 30 million views, the family is now pleading to everyone to stop sharing it.
In an article by Metro, the family said: “We didn’t expect the incident to take such a negative turn. The two families are now in an awkward position and the newly-weds have suffered because of it too. The father-in-law, who was given too much to drink on his son’s big day, deeply regrets his actions. We ask social media users to stop sharing the videos and let our family sort this out privately.”
It sure was a lesson learned the hard way in the perspective of the father-in-law. Nevertheless, let’s just hope that the family resolves this issue and no longer hold grudges against anyone.
