A clueless bloke has been blasted online after he decided to 'pop the question' to his girlfriend at her father's funeral.

Mourners at the service in South Africa cried out in shock as the 'out of order' boyfriend got down on his knees and proposed in front of her father's casket.

The video uploaded by M Mojela has now been watched by thousands of people on TikTok, with the caption reading: “Proposing [to] the deceased’s daughter right at the funeral. Wiping the tears there and there.”

The clip begins with him resting his hands on his girlfriend's lap with ring in hand as he speaks into the microphone, and she quickly begins to cry.

In the speech he thanks god for being in the girl's life during such a difficult time, reports the Toronto Sun, before gasps are heard from the people in attendance as he utters the words of proposal.

After this she starts to tremble and break down, although it is not clear from the footage whether this is due to the emotion of the moment or her being upset at his morbid timing.

Many commenters ridiculed the man's poor sense of timing, as one wrote: "This here is WRONG… No matter how you can try and justify it"

One added: “I feel like he should have waited for the funeral to pass… how do you rejoice when you are in such deep pain.”

While another chimed: "Pure disrespect at all levels"

Others however believed his funeral proposal was a romantic act, as one sympathiser penned: "I personally think it's the assurance you may have lost a parent but I promise to love you and become your parent"

Whatever you think of the setting for his proposal, her answer is ultimately what really counts — and perhaps surprisingly it was a 'yes'.
