Bridezilla enforces ugly $1,000 dress code based on weight. That's not even the worst part.

This may be the most insane bridezilla story ever told.

Whenever I think I’ve read or witnessed the most extreme wedding stipulations, another unhinged bride pops out of the abyss to remind us all that life is limitless — a true hell of your own making.

One bride-to-be’s dystopian wedding vision has taken the internet by storm due to its particularly nauseating combination of fatphobia and classism.

Fatphobia AND classism, can you even name a worse duo?!

\n

To create the desired visual effect at her Hawaii wedding, this bride from hell has created a DRESS CODE for all of her guests. But the horror doesn’t stop there — the dress code is supremely ugly and includes orange suede (this is a hate crime), green f*cking sweaters (in HAWAII), glow sticks (because apparently it’s Coachella) AND GREEN FUZZY JACKETS!!! Pardon the caps lock, it just leaped out of my spirit as I dry heaved.

To make matters even grosser, the bride has delineated what people should wear based on what they weigh, and she has specifically said that women over 160 pounds must wear all black, and men over 200 pounds must wear CAMOUFLAGE. I’m not sure if this is supposed to fade them out, or shame them, but at least they dodged a bullet with the green fuzzy attire.

The bride also requires everyone drop at least 1k on their outfit for her puke-colored 24k-themed wedding.

Just, read this for yourself:

Needless to say, when the screenshot of her terrifying Facebook post made the rounds on Reddit, people had a deluge of responses.

q_q_o_o_b_b really captured the essence of the color scheme.

“Is the ‘incredible visual effect’ the bride is trying to create with a green, orange, purple, black, red and camo color scheme a seizure?”

Androsnian is having a hard time believing anyone will show up to the wedding at all.

“I get this feeling this might be one of those weddings where everyone cancels when she tries to double check a month or so before the wedding, and then we’ll get the over the top drama post about how all her friends are a bunch of backstabbers. Can’t wait.”

SharkSpew lamented just how uncomfortable these outfits would be in Hawaii, and also, marveled that the bride expects everyone to learn a synchronized dance?!

“So, I’ve never been, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say the idea of having to wear sweaters/suede/pants/velvet/hats/jackets no matter what time of year you’re in Hawaii is going to be a disgusting sweaty mess. Especially if I'’ expected to ‘dance’.”

RatherBeYachting even made a paint mock-up of the awful outfits.

Apparently, the woman caught wind of her screenshotted infamy, because she posted an impassioned response to all of the criticism. The response itself feels even more unreal, and there is a deep abiding part of me that wonders and hopes that this is all just an elaborate joke!?

In case you missed it: the black and camouflage outfits represent the devil that she wants to shoo away (so, fat people get to play the devil), the soda hats represent a desire for life affirming liquid, and the expensive outfits represent the desire for an abundant future.

Upon finding out someone betrayed her by making fun of her original post, the bride has offered to allow people to forgo the outfits and choreographed dance (if they wish), so long as they agree to clean up after the wedding or throw cash towards the honeymoon.

She’s also decided to throw a POLYGRAPH PARTY where she will test her friends to find the mole. As a form of emotional blackmail, the bride also wrote that anyone who decides not to attend the polygraph party is a suspect.

Reddit user CrushMyCamel posted the second screenshot, showing the bride’s response to the internet backlash, and shared they don’t know her personally but are connected by friends.

“I don’t know this lunatic or I would 100% go just for all of you, but I do know people who know her so hopefully there is an update on it soon. I hate that this wedding is still over a year away and we have to wait for that lucid nightmare for so long.”

avocadonoir pointed out the glaringly obvious holes in the bride’s defense of her spirituality.

“I love how she equates her spiritual healing profession (which could have quotation marks around it, to be honest) with Indian culture.I also love that they bought a $99 polygraph test from Amazon. And will assume anyone who doesn’t come or doesn’t want to come to their soon-to-be infamous Polygraph Party is guilty of betraying them.

But she won’t retaliate. That’s for non-spiritual people who are unenlightened. She’ll just cut you out of her life and talk mad shit about you after doing so. Like someone at peace with the universe.”

The dedicated informant CrushMyCamel soon updated the thread when a (justifiably) angry guest called the bride out on her BS.

CrushMyCamel has dutifully promised to post more updates on this thread if and when anyone else responds to this unhinged bride. I, for one, will be glued to my screen in anticipation.

A controversial editorial on America's obesity epidemic and healthcare by comedian Bill Maher on his HBO show "Real Time" inspired a thoughtful, and funny, response by James Cordon. It also made for a great debate about healthcare that Americans are avoiding.

At the end of the September 6th episode of "Real Time, " Maher turned to the camera for his usual editorial and discussed how obesity is a huge part of the healthcare debate that no one is having.

"At Next Thursday's debate, one of the candidates has to say, 'The problem with our healthcare system is Americans eat shit and too much of it.' All the candidates will mention their health plans but no one will bring up the key factor: the citizens don't lift a finger to help," Maher said sternly.

There is no shortage of proposals from the, um, what's the word for it… huge, group of Democratic presidential candidates this year. But one may stand out from the pack as being not just bold but also necessary; during a CNN town hall about climate change Andrew Yang proposed a "green amendment" to the constitution.

Me Too Kit

The creator of the Me Too kit — an at home rape kit that has yet to hit the market — has come under fire as sexual assault advocates argue the kit is dangerous and misleading for women.

The kit is marketed as "the first ever at home kit for commercial use," according to the company's website. "Your experience. Your kit. Your story. Your life. Your choice. Every survivor has a story, every survivor has a voice." Customers will soon be able order one of the DIY kits in order to collect evidence "within the confines of the survivor's chosen place of safety" after an assault.

"With MeToo Kit, we are able to collect DNA samples and other tissues, which upon testing can provide the necessary time-sensitive evidence required in a court of law to identify a sexual predator's involvement with sexual assault," according to the website.

Villagers rejoice as they receive the first vaccines ever delivered via drone in the Congo

The area's topography makes transporting medicines a treacherous task.

When we discuss barriers to healthcare in the developed world, affordability is commonly the biggest concern. But for some in the developing world, physical distance and topography can be the difference between life and death.

Widjifake, a hard-to-reach village in northwestern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) with a population of 6,500, struggles with having consistent access to healthcare supplies due to the Congo River and its winding tributaries.

It can take up to three hours for vehicles carrying supplies to reach the village.

Fox News and President Trump seem like they may be headed for a breakup. "Fox is a lot different than it used to be," Trump told reporters in August after one of the network's polls found him trailing for Democrats in the 2020 election.

"There's something going on at Fox, I'll tell you right now. And I'm not happy with it," he continued.

Some Fox anchors have hit back at the president over his criticisms. "Well, first of all, Mr. President, we don't work for you," Neil Cavuto said on the air. "I don't work for you. My job is to cover you, not fawn over you or rip you, just report on you."
