Child calls dad 'racist, misogynistic' at his funeral in front of stunned mourners

Child calls dad 'racist, misogynistic' at his funeral in front of stunned mourners

They didn't shy away from their thoughts

A teenager has appeared to call their dad ‘racist’ and ‘misogynistic’ at his funeral in front of stunned mourners.

The TikToker, who uses they/them pronouns, dubbed their father as a prejudiced Donald Trump voter during a eulogy at his funeral, which they shared to their platform under the username @saginthesunforever.

In the video, which saw them reciting the speech to a crowd, they're heard saying: “But 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 white man.

“That is all you will ever be to me,” they said in the clip, which was re-shared by @micahstewartreacts on the platform on Thursday.

The clip was captioned by the original creator: “POV: You’re in the audience watching me refuse to sing the praises of a [poop emoji] person at their funeral.”

The full eulogy was said to, at first, hear the content creator expressing their gratitude for their fathers’ place in their family.

A child has appeared to call their dad ‘racist’ and ‘misogynistic’ at his funeral.

They reportedly said: “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.”

What followed was the explanation that the child never felt heard or had their views understood by their parent, adding: “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.”

The original video - which has since been removed from the site - garnered at least 1.7 million views since it was posted last week, while a longer video of the speech saw 166.4 thousand views on the site, according to reports.

It was not clear whether or not the speech occurred at their father’s actual funeral, but the MailOnline reported that the funeral in question was that of Donald Foss, a billionaire who died in the summer as a result of cancer complications.

Foss, the founder and ex-CEO of Credit Acceptance, the auto loans company, died on 14 August after battling with an aggressive form of cancer.

The since-deceased businessman was placed on the 2022 Forbes Billionaires list, with his wealth coming in at an estimated $2 billion (£1.6 billion) when he died.

A source close to the late Foss has since denied his child's claims, saying to the MailOnline: "He dated women of color, he married her mother, if anybody loved a black woman, it was Don.

"They went to a very diverse high school in Michigan, they played lacrosse and he [Donald] would go to their games. They didn’t lack for anything.”
