A couple in the US has hit back at trolls who have accused their relationship of being fake because they believe the husband is 'too unattractive’ for his wife.
Scott, from Houston, Texas, first met his now-wife Divine in 2017, when she mistook him for someone else and sent him a message on Facebook.
Though it was a case of mistaken identity, Scott and Divine got to talking and struck up a relationship, which they carried out for four years long-distance.
Eventually, Scott went to the Philippines to meet Divine in person and proposed, after which Divine moved to the US to be with him.
As a loved-up couple, Scott and Divine regularly share updates and information about their relationship with posts on TikTok. Unfortunately, though, some viewers just aren't convinced their romance is real.
The pair have become the target of cruel trolls who say Scott is ‘ugly’ and ‘punching above his weight’ with Divine, with some viewers suggesting Divine is only in a relationship with Scott for the 'green card' which allows her to remain in the US.
"That wallet and green card must be cute," one comment reads.
Scott has explained that he has been diagnosed with Scleroderma, an autoimmune disease that he first developed in his teens.
The husband said the disease 'morphed' his appearance, but after being the subject of a lot of cruel comments he's come to ignore the hate.
“Because you keep seeing the same thing over and over again. There's just no effect anymore," he explained in an interview with Truly.
"We're just two normal people...there's always going to be someone out there that's not going to think about it [his appearance]."
Scott and Divine have found ways to make light of the comments and allegations that come their way, with one recent video from the pair showing how Divine makes her own money, rather than relying on Scott to fund her life.
Though they continue to receive a lot of criticism, thankfully there are a lot of people out there who are much more supportive of Divine and Scott, with one viewer responding to the video to say: "You don't owe anyone an explanation.
"People are mean and trying to find someone to put their insecurities onto. Be happy."
Another TikTok user commented: "It's still funny how some people think they know your whole life just because they see 10 seconds of your day."
