The internet can be a cruel place- and one couple is learning this the hard way.
A happily-wed couple is getting a firsthand look at how superficial some people can be after photos of them drew uncouth comments from netizens who feel the wife “dated down.”
Scott and Divine, a couple who reside in Texas, began as an international couple.
Originally from the Philippines, Divine met Scott online in 2017 after Scott mistook her for someone he knew.
The couple began to talk, according to The Daily Star, and after a while began to visit one another in their respective countries.
As these stories often go, Divine ended up marrying Scott and moving to the United States.
Residing in Houston, the couple began publicizing their relationship, capitalizing on the narcissistic nature of TikTok for gain and fame.

Unfortunately, this idea didn’t go according to plan, particularly due to Scott’s less-than-conventionally attractive visage.
While some netizens claimed Divine simply married for a Green Card, most critics claimed she was too pretty for Scott.
Scott’s looks are more than just bad luck in the looks department- he has a lifelong autoimmune disease called Scleroderma, which he began showing signs of in his early teens.
Despite this, Scott seemingly has something about him that keeps Divine around and isn’t deterred by the negative comments.

“Because you keep seeing the same thing over and over again,” Scott said, “There’s just no effect anymore. We’re just two normal people. There’s always going to be someone out there that’s not going to think about it.”
While the couple is often razzed for their…Well, mere existence, they remain devoted to one another and even get some positive comments from people who find them inspiring.
