Woman Shamed by Commenters for 'Smallest Ring Ever' After Engagement

Share

Is it just me, or does it seem like you can no longer post anything on social media without inviting unkind comments from lurking trolls? It doesn’t matter what you put online these days, I can promise you someone out there is going to have an issue with it.

Photo of your baby in a car seat with the chest clip too low? Prepare yourself for a mom-shame fest.

Picture of your simple engagement ring on Instagram? Get ready for your followers to become downright nasty.

Such is the disappointing story of Jen Phanomrat and Leo Samanamud. This fun-loving foodie couple can be seen on their YouTube channel, Just Eat Life.

With over 80K subscribers, these two are certainly popular. According to their YouTube bio, they “believe that food should be approachable, enjoyable, and inspiring!”

The two have been together, loving food and living life, for close to ten years. With as many followers as they can claim to their names, it’s no surprise they wanted to share their happy moment with their fans.

“9 years later, I said YES to my best friend!” Phanomrat wrote in her Instagram caption. As you can see, the paired photo features her beside her new fiancé, and an engagement ring she’s obviously proud to wear.

9 years later, I said YES to my best friend! ❤

But, leave it to the jealous internet trollers to rain on this couple’s parade. The comments quickly took a turn for the worst when followers began shaming Phanomrat for her small, gold band with a single pearl in the center.

“It must suck to wait 9 years for a ring that look like that,” someone said. “Congrats!! Where’s the ring?” another asked.

And this is just a taste of the horrible things people said. The comments for the post have since been disabled, and it’s sad that this couple’s followers can’t simply be happy for them.

“I’ve always been an advocate for women supporting women,” Phanomrat noted. “So I was shocked to see so many females wasting their time replying to each other to dampen our happy moment.”

Well said. After all, it’s not about the size of the ring, but the size of one’s heart that matters.

I’d better not post a photo of my simple wedding band online. I can only imagine the things mockers might say.

The truth is, my ring suits me perfectly. It’s not anyone else’s place to judge me or Phanomrat — we’re loved, and that’s worth more than the biggest diamond in the world.
