Twitter exploded on Wednesday after a couple who took part in a slavery-themed wedding shoot went viral.
In the pics, which took place in a sugar plantation, the fiancé, who is Black, wears shackles and is on his knees kissing his partner’s hands. The woman, who is white, is seen wearing a long skirt and white bonnet and is posed as if she is about to unlock his shackles.
“1842. Days passed and everything changed, our love got stronger and stronger. He was no longer a slave. He was part of the family… Part 2 PRE-WEDDING session,” the caption reads.
“There were three people there, counting the photographer, and not one thought, ‘should we [not do this]’?” somebody wrote. “And over 1400 people hit the like button? And it’s part 2, like there’s more? I so want to be at the wedding when the minister asks if anybody objects.”
