Pregnant mom fires gay photographer in infuriating text message

It started innocently enough.

A pregnant mother named McKenna sought the services of a local Alabama photographer to take some maternity photos.

She found one she assumedly clicked with — 21-year-old Faith Grace.

Everything was going swimmingly until the woman took a deep dive into Faith’s Instagram ahead of their shoot to check out more of her work.

That’s when McKenna saw it, staring threateningly back at her from the insidious depths of social media, the bright colors searing stripes into her retinas. That’s right — it was a photo of a rainbow flag.

The next day, Faith received a text message from McKenna:

If you’re saying to yourself “This can’t be going anywhere good,” you’d be 100% right.

Here’s how Faith responded:


McKenna fired back with this:

Bonus points for the backhanded apology — “I’m sorry that you think this lifestyle is OK.” Oh lord.

For reference, here are some of the family photos Faith has in her portfolio.

Pretty subversive stuff.

The screenshot Faith shared on Twitter has been retweeted over 38K times. We hope the media attention leads to a boatload of job offers for this talented young photographer, and that McKenna’s 5-year-old soon gets the opportunity to learn that the world is full of different sorts of people.
