A man has sparked outrage after proposing to his girlfriend at her dad’s funeral – as he popped the question as she wiped away her tears.
A guest at the funeral whipped out their phone when they realised what was happening, and shared a clip of the ill-timed romantic move on TikTok.
The man, who was also the pastor at the service in South Africa, decided to seize the moment, and with the microphone in hand, he gets down on both knees and pulls out a ring.
The bizarre proposal is interrupted constantly by feedback from the microphone and it’s impossible to hear what the man is saying, and soon people took to the comments on TikTok to blast his terrible timing.

The video, captioned “proposing (to) the deceased daughter right at the funeral”, was shared on the TikTok account @m.mojela, and soon it had over 280,000 views.
Soon people flocked to the comments to condemn the man for his actions.
One user said: “Pure disrespect at all levels.”
Then another wrote: “This here is wrong – no matter how you can try and justify it.”
And a third added: “Timing is off.”
“Why here? Asked another viewer. “Meaning always when you see that ring you’ll remember your dad.”
“Not at a funeral. I’d say no. Let me respect my loved one first,” commented another user.
