When the netizen's fury is fired up, it becomes impossible for anyone to put the flames out. They were undoubtedly beyond enraged at two grieving sisters for what they thought to be highly offensive content.
A sister duo pushed the boundaries of dark humor when they posted a clip of themselves dancing in front of their mother's open casket. The internet attacked these two siblings from every angle.
The clip was posted on an account going by trinbryn and @rickandmourning. While standing in front of their mother's coffer, the pair first bumped fists.
They then rapped a tune referring to the adult cartoon show "Rick and Morty," echoing the essence of the TikTok account's username. The description read:
"We also do weddings, bar mitzvahs, baptisms, gender reveals & graduations."
The dyad danced to the song while looking down at the coffin, seemingly tributing it to their late mother. They then laughed together, but a large number of viewers didn't find it funny, many seeing it in bad taste.
In another TikTok video one of the sisters shared, she claimed that she had lost her job due to the video. In the initial clip, however, they jumped right back into their macabre sense of humor, writing in the comment section:
"If ya'll could all try to rick and morty my job back ...i'd really appreciate it."
The comments were mixed, but one user going by @Lame Hipster believed that they deserved this. They alleged the siblings were using their mother's passing as a way to accumulate virality online.
The sisters, who perhaps picked up this song from a "Rick and Morty" viral trend that involves rapping the tune at graves, were not quiet in response to those who thought their decision was vulgar.
The late fianceé's parents were reproving at first.
Another video was made, with one of them claiming that the way they choose to grieve is their decision. She also revealed that they were indeed in pain following their parent's passing.
Grieving is a difficult path to navigate, and these two mourning siblings aren't the only ones who received criticism for their chosen route. Reddit user Fun_Towel_2726 shared a story on the platform explaining her similar predicament.
The Redditor chose to wear a wedding dress to her fiancée's funeral despite her grieving parents' wishes. The user claimed that before passing away, her partner told her that it would mean the world to her if she did so.
The late fianceé's parents were reproving at first. However, after speaking with Fun_Towel_2726's fianceé's brothers and sister, who promised to support her, the Reddit user donned the Dolce & Gabbana attire.
On dealing with the death of a mother and father, Cruse Bereavement Care states that there is no right or wrong way to grieve the loss. Some many different processes and feelings may arise for different individuals, they claim.
Some can include feeling like a child, even if one is grown, or coming to a head with the reality of death. Whichever way the mourning turns, one aspect remains the same, and that is that losing a parent is simply harrowing.
