In November 2022, a woman stirred up the internet when she emphatically criticized her own father during his funeral, calling him out as a “racist, misogynistic, xenophobic” Donald Trump devotee in what later became a viral video.
The speaker chose to stay anonymous but was quite firm in her words. No matter what anyone said, she made it clear that she will always speak up regardless of what people might think. As the caption suggests, “Friendly reminder that Idgaf [I don’t give a f–k] and WILL say what needs to be said every single time.”
It’s not known exactly when the memorial service for their father was held, however, the TikToker shared a long speech to elaborate more on their relationship.
“Dad, please know that I am grateful and highly aware of what you have done for this family, [but] I still don’t miss you,” she declared.
“When you died, I felt like there was a hole. I missed something, but it wasn’t you. It was the idea of what you could [have] become. I missed being able to hope and wish that one day you’d turn a corner and see the world from my perspective.”
At the funeral, the activist shared her dream of having their father fight alongside her for what was important. Sadly, this would not come to pass.
As a result, she claimed that his death had “solidified the fact that you’ll never be what you could have been, but only what you are — and what you are is a racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, Trump-loving, cis, straight white man.”
As the crowd looked on, the outspoken woman went on to add that she would not bow down to their dad only because he had passed away, as he had shown no respect for and flouted the lives and deaths of entire groups of people.
“You are everything I aspire not to be and I refuse to stand up here and sing the praises of a man who is the paradigm of white supremacy,” they stated.
The TikToker ended the speech by defiantly declaring: “I swear to God, I will make this world a better place. Not at all because of you, but in exact opposition to you.”
A few people in the audience clapped in support of her after she left the stage, but most seemed to be too stunned to respond.
