Every bride hopes to have their father's blessing for their wedding day, but for one unfortunate woman this wasn't the case at all. Take a look at her story below:
We know family dynamics can be complicated, especially when a parent throws shots at their child's spouse, but this well and truly takes the cake.
Melissa Moore, an Emmy-nominated crime correspondent for the Dr. Oz Show and the host of the podcast, Life After Happy Face, shared the letter she received from her father after he saw her wedding pictures in July.
Her father, who just so happens to be Keith Jesperson aka the Happy Face killer, was not pleased at all.
Melissa shared the scathing letter on TikTok, which has accumulated over a million likes and more than 8 million views - and we can totally understand why.
Melissa shares excerpts from the mind-blowing exchange written by her dad, in which he declares the couple clearly 'don't run' because they're both 'fat'.
"My serial killer father sends me letters from prison like this," Melissa begins.
"So I got married this summer in July and I got a letter like this from my Dad with my picture from my wedding.
"So he's somehow able to see my Instagram from prison," she says, repeating what we're all thinking watching the unbelievable video.
“In the letter, he says I’m fat and my husband is fat and we don’t run,” Moore said. “He then tells me maybe this marriage will work and ends with ‘why wasn’t I invited?'”
Jesperson ends the letter with: "Remember most of all daughter I never stopped loving you."
Jesperson, 67, is a convicted serial killer who murdered at least eight women in the United States in the early 1990s.
The smiley faces he drew on the many letters he sent to the media, which is how he got his name.
Many of his victims were sex workers who had no prior connection to him and strangulation was his preferred method.
He is now serving a life sentence without parole at the Oregon State Penitentiary.
Melissa has spoken about her father a lot over the years, with appearances Dr. Phil, The Oprah Winfrey Show and a 20/20 ABC special.
She published a book Shattered Silence: The Untold Story of a Serial Killer's Daughter in 2008, in which she recounts living with Jesperson until he and her mum, Rose Hucke, divorced in 1990.
Melissa a high school when her father, a long-haul truck driver, was charged with multiple murders in 1995.
