‘Trashy’ groom slammed for displaying rude message on shoes at altar
A groom was branded “trashy” after he shared a cheeky message during his wedding ceremony.
The word “HELP” was visible on the bloke’s shoes as he knelt at the altar with the bride.
Surprised guests took pictures of the soles – and one of the snaps has since gone viral online.
While the image has been floating around on the internet for a while, it was posted to Reddit’s Wedding Shaming forum six days ago.
Even though the prank was clearly a light-hearted one, a Redditor argued the groom "needs help".
Many seemed to agree with the comment as it garnered more than 330 upvotes.
One Redditor asked: “Why get married if you hate your spouse?”
Another said: “Working in the wedding industry, this type of ‘humour’ is one of my biggest pet peeves. It’s fundamentally problematic.”
A third agreed: “Yes! I hate the 'ball-and-chain' jokes or 'I got one!' paraphernalia.
“If you don't want to get married, don't get married but you also shouldn't get married just to say you did.”
And a fourth added: “Wow. That’s trashy.”
Another asked: “Why do people think it’s okay to start a marriage off with this sh**ty 'humour'?”
And a Redditor gasped: “Yikes. I can't imagine marrying someone who's already so adamant about hating to be with me/wanting to run away.”
Despite the criticism, some pointed out the “HELP” sign could have been a prank by one of the groomsmen.
A commenter revealed: “My dad and his brothers secretly wrote 'help me' on the bottom of my uncle’s shoes on his wedding day.
“40+ years later and my aunt still hasn’t forgiven them. My dad and my uncles still think it’s hilarious.”
And another said: “It’s not usually the groom who writes this – it’s usually the best man or a groomsman who does it as a prank.”
