This woman perfectly shot down people who accused her boyfriend of punching above his weight

The couple’s photo went viral earlier in the month.

IT’S NOT ALL about looks, which is a concept many can’t grasp.

Ashley Stevens was shocked to learn that a photograph of her and her boyfriend at a wedding had gone viral online. The photo, captioned ‘My friend caught the bouquet. That is her boyfriend in the background.’ was meant to poke fun at her boyfriend’s shocked expression, but instead, caused an avalanche of hate when posted to Reddit.

The photo got 2,699 comments, mostly wondering what the woman in question was doing with her boyfriend at all.

He’s clearly punching above his weight.
My guess is that they’re siblings.
That dude should marry her yesterday before she gets a hold of a mirror.

They only got worse from there.

Ashley hit back with the perfect response on Facebook when she discovered the comments. She defended her boyfriend Chris, calling him ‘understanding, loving and hilarious’, while mentioning how shocked she is that so many people would be that quick to judge.

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?

Here’s the full thing:


So, listen up haters.

So as of us and those rude comments, we know the truth and we will block out the haters. Enjoy our picture though. Lol

In an interview with ABC, Chris said he wasn’t bothered by the comments.

Honestly, I’ve always been a big guy the majority of my life and so of course I had the comments and the cruel jokes growing up, so I kind of got used to it. I know who I am and I really don’t care what people have to say about me because I’m confident. It’s trolls sitting behind their computers. They don’t know us and they can’t talk about us, so honestly it just didn’t bother me.
