Fathers are the protectors of their daughters, and so when a boy comes to pick them up for prom, the totally rational, logical and hilarious thing to do is to get out your gun and take a photo that says – in its worth of 1,000 words – “if this boy touches my daughter, I’m going to shoot him.”
So, Bossip, “the premier destination for African-American and Black celebrity gossip, Black reality shows, pop culture and entertainment news” (their words, not mine), ran a gallery of armed dads posing with their daughters and the daughters’ prom dates. And what you see next, as Upworthy would say, will change your life. Or not.
But here’s my real question: is this funny? Or are we too judgy?
