Prepare for secondhand embarrassment as a cringe-worthy wedding speech takes the internet by storm. The TikTok video, shared by Tori, @browneyed_beautee, the groom’s sister, has racked up a jaw-dropping 10 million views and counting for this white woman’s rant about how much she “loves black people” in her speech.
Awkward Laughter and Confusion
The clip begins innocently enough, with the speaker, Shannon, introducing herself and mentioning her friendship with the bride, Tracy.
Things quickly take a turn when she blurts out, “You better take care of my girl because if you don’t, I know where you live.”
Awkward laughter ensues from the confused guests.
Shannon proceeds to utter the cringiest line of all: “You’re a part of the family, I swear to God. Like, I’m not going to be racist, you guys, I’m just sayin’.”
And… Just When You Thought It Couldn’t Get More Cringe-Worthy
Cue gasps and an audible “oh my gosh” from the crowd.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any more cringe-worthy, she adds, “I’m gonna be racist, OK,” and praises the couple for “outstepping the stereotype” as a mixed-race duo.
The ordeal finally concludes with her proclaiming her love for Black people and a well-deserved clap from someone, signaling the end of this painfully awkward speech.
Tori’s caption on TikTok reads: “CRINGE WARNING. So my brother got married this past weekend, and this was one of the speeches from friends… Think miss girl was nervous but wheeww had a few of us like.”
“I Mean, That Had to End. Brutal.”
The online response to the video has been a mix of shock, confusion, and amusement.
One commenter wrote: “Whoever started clapping = hero. I mean, that had to end. Brutal.”
Another questioned the choice of friends, saying: “No please..it literally keeps getting worse?????”
A third person simply couldn’t handle the cringiness and was puzzled by the choice of topic, “If I had to think of a list of things to not bring up in a wedding speech racism would probably be thing number one.”
Despite the Speech, the Wedding Was a Roaring Success
Tori clarified that, despite the speech disaster, the wedding itself was still a great time.
She even shared another video of a friend giving a much more appropriate speech to balance out the awkwardness.
Tracy, the bride, reportedly texted Tori, admitting her discomfort during Shannon’s speech and silently signaling her friend, Ty, to intervene.
