Twitter Loses it Over Skywritten Marriage Proposal Mocking Joe Rogan

Los Angeles residents bore witness to a hilariously public marriage proposal this past Saturday, complete with a declaration of love and a jab at podcast host Joe Rogan's height.

According to TheWrap, the sky-written proposal was performed by a company called Sky Typers and cost $17,000. Twitter was delighted by the proposal, and couldn't believe someone spent thousands of dollars to insult Rogan in such an elaborate way.

According to those on Twitter, the proposal read as follows: "Will you marry me, Mollie Pratt?" "She said yes." "I love you more than anything." "Excited to spend my life with you." "Until death do us part."

But that wasn't where the elaborate proposal ended. The person proposing had "one more thing to say": "Joe Rogan is literally 5 foot 3."

To make the performance more amusing, the skywriting company misspelled the word "literally" on its first attempt. Photos of the event show the word was first spelled without the "r."

It is worth noting Joe Rogan is not literally 5'3". According to Wikipedia, the podcast host is actually 5'7"; however, Twitter couldn't stop talking about the jab, and many didn't seem to care that it was inaccurate.

"Joe Rogan when he finds the guy who had a plane sky write Joe Rogan is 5'3"," said one tweeter who added a gif of a child climbing on a step stool to punch someone in the face.

While many who posted the photos of the message did so in good humor, a lot of commenters felt that mocking the comedian's height was a case of "body shaming."

"Don't really like Rogan but why is it ok to demean a guy's height," commented one user.

"I don't really like Joe Rogan because he says and advocates nasty stuff, but using height as an insult is normalizing body shaming," said another.

"Why is body shaming suddenly okay if it's someone Twitter doesn't like," another user asked in the discussion.

People couldn't understand what Rogan's height had to do with a marriage proposal. One Twitter user, however, had their own theory: "After she said yes it devolved into inside jokes."

"This being an inside joke between two people makes a lot more sense," replied another Twitter user.

Rogan recently drew criticism for remarks about coronavirus vaccines, which likely contributed to some thinking comments about his height were not offensive.

"Who cares if he's 5'3?? I'm more pissed about the fact that he uses his enormous platform in an irresponsible way, like spreading covid disinformation," one Twitter user remarked.

"It's hilarious to watch fans get outraged over mocking Joe Rogan's height like his podcast hasn't always been a vehicle for intolerance," said another.

Love him or hate him, this proposal is sure to be a moment in time that Mollie Pratt and the greater L.A. area will never forget.
