In May 2017, a man from St. Louis got down on one knee and asked his girlfriend to marry him. The adorable moment was captured in a Facebook photo
Jessica McDaniels, a 32-year-old hairstylist, stood behind her happy friends, smiling wide and taking a few pictures of her own. But after the engagement photo was shared online, someone cropped Jessica out and wrote a caption insulting her teeth. The post went viral, and soon, tens of thousands of cyberbullies were mocking Jessica’s appearance online.
As a child, Jessica was hearing-impaired and underwent many surgeries on her ears. Her adult teeth, which were always pushed outward for some reason, didn’t even grow in until she was 12.
