• Ashley and Christopher at a wedding

Beauty is only skin deep: Woman gives Internet trolls a lesson in true love

"I think I've won the jackpot!" Those are the words of a young woman who hit back at Internet trolls who made cruel jokes about her boyfriend's appearance.

Ashley and Christopher, both 21 and from Georgia were recently at the wedding of a friend where they were caught on camera at the moment when a delighted Ashley caught the bride's bouquet while seated next to a mock-terrified looking Christopher. When the photograph was shared on content sharing website Reddit, commentators, rather than enjoying the couple's hilarious expressions, questioned why Ashley would choose to be with Christopher, making nasty remarks about his appearance.

The thread soon went viral, but what really sent the Internet into meltdown was when Ashley chose to respond to the haters, giving all those who'd posted hurtful comments an important lesson in what it really means to love someone. 


"Well let me just tell you, I won the jackpot with Christopher. He may not have rock hard abs like the world tells girls to want in a guy, but really, why does that even matter when you are trying to really find someone to spend the rest of your life with? 

"He is so thoughtful and patient, he always shows me how he loves me in little ways, he is my best friend. I love him for who he is and he loves me for who I am. Understanding, loving, and hilarious, which is so rare to find these days!! God saw the desires of my heart and blessed me with Christopher."


“You are an angel girl! It's a shame there aren't more just like you! You truly know what matters in life. God bless you both and I wish you a Truly Wonderful Life Together!”

“Sad that we live in a society that worries more about a persons looks than what's inside, like kindness, integrity, faithfulness. You go girl, shame on all the haters and I wish u a lifetime of happiness with your awesome BF!”

Christopher is ADORABLE! I am glad you like him just the way he is and being BFF'S is the secret of any relationship. People are shallow and have no hearts. You two look so cute together! Don't let anyone tear you apart! YOU TWO ROCK! KEEP ON, KEEPIN' ON TOGETHER! XOXOXOXOXO to you both!”
