A pair of New York food bloggers who announced their engagement on Instagram have been cruelly trolled over the size of the bride-to-be’s ring.
Jen Phanomrat of the popular YouTube channel Just Eat Life, which has 81,000 subscribers, shared her the happy news of her engagement to Leo Samanamud, saying: ‘9 years later, I said YES to my best friend!’
But while fans were quick to share their congratulations others couldn’t resist commenting on Jen’s delicate ring.
‘It just seems like he went into the store like “show the smallest ring ever made”,’ one said. ‘I understand simplicity, but this is beyond my understanding why anyone would buy something that small.’
Others cruelly mocked Jen by commenting: ‘Where’s the ring?’, while one added: ‘So are we all just going to pretend like that ring isn’t microscopically small?’.
And another said i looked as if the band was too small for her fingers and that her partner hadn’t made the effort to find out her ring size, even after nine years together.

Jen said the engagement ring was exactly what she would have picked for herself and was disappointed to see so many women leaving negative comments
Jen later told Yahoo Lifestyle that she was delighted with the simple band, and it was exactly what she would have chosen for herself.
‘He knew exactly what type of ring I’d love,’ she said. ‘A delicate, hammered gold ring with a tiny pearl.
‘I don’t usually wear any jewelry, but when I do, it’s simple and minimal.’
However, she was subject to nasty remarks such as: ‘It must suck to wait 9 years for a ring that look like that.’
Commenters branded the ring ‘microscopically small’ and said Leo could have done better after nine years
Jen added that she was shocked that so many of the people leaving negative comments on her announcement were other women.
‘I was shocked to see so many females wasting their time replying to each other to dampen our happy moment,’ she said.
She explained that she’d deleted many of the hateful comments, but had seen a meme created from their photo and shared on Instagram with the caption: ‘Ladies, would you accept the ring and say yes?’
Luckily the couple also received plenty of supportive comments, with fans pointing out how happy they looked and saying that love is what matters – not the size of the ring.
