Amber Roof, the sister of accused Charleston church shooter, Dylan Roof, recently took down a GoFundMe page where she had the nerve to scream “woe is me” because her racist killer sibling spoiled her wedding plans.
“As many of you know Michael and I had to abruptly cancel our wedding day, due to the tragedy that occurred in Charleston,” she wrote. “June 21st was suppose to be the happiest day of our lives. It is the day every girl dreams of, it was the day we dreamed of. We had each other, we have the perfect venue, and we had our vows ready to be read. We were ready! We had planned out every detail for months and months. It was going to be the PERFECT day! Our day was the exact opposite. Our wedding day was full of sorrow, pain, and shame, tainted by the actions of one man.”
The 27-year-old South Carolina native was scheduled to get married to her U.S. Army recruiter fiancé Michael Tyo on June 21. Four days prior, Dylann Roof allegedly accepted the hospitality of members of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal church, only to shoot nine people dead over his own racist warped thinking. Nevertheless, he has already been given preferential treatment from his captors and Amber Roof is displaying the same sort of selfishness that cause innocent lives to be lost for no apparent reason other than hate.
Her goal was to raise $5,000 “to cover lost wedding costs, to pay bills, and to send us on our dream honeymoon.” She also claimed to donate 10 percent of her earnings to the victims’ families. It was the least she could do, huh?
Once Charlotte’s WSOCTV got into the mix, Amber took down the GoFundMe page with the exact same shame she claimed to endure from her brother’s actions. Several users were reportedly critical of the page and one user even donated $9 to symbolize each of the victims.
A GoFundMe employee sent a statement to Channel 9 which read, “The campaign in question was removed by the Campaign Organizer. Organizers have the ability to remove their campaigns whenever they choose.”
Her wedding still has no scheduled date. Also, fuck her wedding.
