Addison Smith, 24, a former Newsmax national correspondent, proposed to her girlfriend Charis Edwards, 22, on Sunday.

A man’s engagement post showing him proposing to his glamorous girlfriend has sparked a brutal backlash online.

Addison Smith, 24, posted photos Sunday with her now-fiancee, Charis Edwards, 22, a senior booking producer for ‘Lou Dobbs Tonight.’

Smith accompanied the images with a caption that quickly divided the Internet.

‘Pride month is so defeated. I love you @charisedwardss,” Smith said in a post on X.

Smith told DailyMail.com after going viral: ‘Just when we thought our engagement weekend couldn’t get any better, we activated a whole army of liberals in the process. “We can’t think of a better way to cap off Pride Month.”

In the engagement photos, Smith was seen on his right knee, dressed in tan khaki pants and a blue floral button-down shirt, with a sparkling diamond ring inside a black box.

Edwards wore a short pastel pink dress with a large bow in the back, as she hugged her future husband.

But the title seemed to cause friction, and viewers flocked to share their reactions; many of whom are members of the LGBTQ community expressed how disrespected they felt.

“It’s not entirely clear to me that you needed to create such a beautiful moment about LGBTQ people, especially when we want everyone to find happiness in family as much as we do. Hoping you find peace in the next chapter,” one said.

‘Imagine proposing to someone and immediately thinking about how that affects gay people. Which is not the case,” said another.

Another wrote: “I send you my deepest condolences,” while another added: “My deepest condolences to your wife.”

“So what you’re saying is that when you propose to a woman, you’re thinking about gay people,” another person commented.

Another said: ‘This is very sad… very very sad. What should have been one of the best times of your life and all you can think about is Pride Month… Does he know that?

Shortly after, Edwards reposted his tweet and said, “Make June great again.” Smith, a former Newsmax national correspondent, shared her tweet and said, “Make June never be gay again.”

While many people reacted negatively to Smith’s post, he continued to share his views on his big day on the internet.

According to Edwards’ LinkedIn, she also previously worked at One American News Network in broadcast and writing positions.

Pride is a month-long celebration that takes place in June each year. It was inspired by the Stonewall Riots, a series of gay liberation protests that took place in 1969.

The celebration is filled with parades, marches, and many outdoor events that honor the entire LGBTQ+ community.
