The sister of the alleged Charleston shooter, Dylann Roof, is upset that her brother being charged with slaughtering nine people has ruined her dream wedding. She’s appealing to the public for donations so she can reschedule.
Amber Roof’s wedding was scheduled for June 21, four days after the massacre at Emanuel AME Church.
“We were ready! We had planned out every detail for months and months. It was going to be the PERFECT day!,” she writes.
She is asking the public for donations to fund a new wedding. According to Amber, “We know money cannot replace the wedding we lost and our perfect day, however it will help us to create new memories and a new start with our new family.”
The money will pay not only for a rescheduled wedding but also “to send us on our dream honeymoon.”
The fundraiser has promoted a slew of negative reactions, which someone is systematically deleting from the comments section on the page. One person donated $5 so she could repost some of the most critical:
Amber pledged to donate 10% of the money to Emanuel AME.
There are also many ways to donate directly to Emanuel AME and the families of the people who were killed.
The campaign was removed from GoFundMe by “the campaign organizer,” presumably Amber Roof.
