SISTER OF CONFESSED CHARLESTON MASSACRE PERPETRATOR YANKS FUNDRAISING SITE
|| By FITSNEWS || We feel bad for Amber Roof. We really do.
Her brother – 21-year-old Dylann Storm Roof – is the white supremacist who murdered nine black South Carolinians at the historic Mother Emanuel AME Church in downtown Charleston, S.C. last month.
To her credit, Amber Roof – whose wedding was supposed to take place on the Saturday after the “Holy City Massacre” – was the individual who identified her brother to law enforcement as the perpetrator of the attack.
Good for her …
Dylann Roof was eventually captured in Shelby, N.C. and returned to Charleston – where he is awaiting trial on nine murder charges.
Anyway, Amber Roof has lost whatever good will she may have engendered by giving up her brother …
“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 on a Go Fund Me page created last weekend. “June 21st was supposed 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!” she continued.
Until … this.
“Our day was the exact opposite. Our wedding day was full of sorrow, pain, and shame, tainted by the actions of one man,” she wrote. “The Charleston Massacre took place and our lives were forever changed. The media abused our privacy and published all of our wedding information and destroyed our dream day. Destroying the first day of Michael and my life together.”
Again, we feel sorry for her (and her fiancee) … we really do.
But seriously … who does this?
And who gives money to something like this?
“While it’s not by her own actions that this horrible event occurred, it’s still very inappropriate for her to even THINK of launching this GoFundMe campaign,” one of our founding editor’s Facebook friend’s wrote. “There are people who will never see their family member ever again. It’s the wrong time to be concerned about a ‘dream honeymoon.'”
Roof had raised close to $2,000 for her honeymoon when the site was yanked … apparently by her.
Good. Amber Roof should have known better than to ever publicize such a solicitation. At least she had the good sense to take it down.
