If there’s one celebrity couple who does social media better than anyone else, the prize surely has to go to Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds.
But the pair have had some past controversies – one of which has resurfaced this week …
Their 2012 wedding has become a source of shame for the pair.
He’s probably best known for his role as Marvel superhero, Deadpool – in fact, he even directed the second Deadpool movie.
Reynolds has one of the most beloved social media presences in the celebosphere. His Twitter is absolutely loaded with golden moments, often making fun of being a husband and a father.
She’s had an impressive movie career, although many would argue that her most famous role is still that of the privileged socialite, Serena van der Woodsen, in teen soap, Gossip Girl.
Aside from being two of the most attractive people on the planet, they also seem to have an excellent sense of humor when it comes to their relationship.
Reynolds often takes to Twitter and Instagram to poke fun at married life and fatherhood.
Around the time of his wife’s birthday, he often comes up with ingenious ways to share a sarcastic tribute to Lively – like this iconic poorly-cropped photo.
On Reynolds’ birthday, in response, she posted a tribute to the other famous Ryan – Ryan Gosling – cropping out her husband in the process.
Nothing says “I love my wife,” like being more focused on the celebrations of an aging country star than her own special day.
People are bringing up the pair’s controversial 2012 wedding again.
A former South Carolina reservation. Yikes.
And totally forgot to think about the implications.
But it’s a place built on exploitation and pain.
Which just goes to show how problematic these styles of weddings really are.
Reynolds has spoken out.
Telling Fast Company, “it’s something we’ll always be deeply and unreservedly sorry for.”
“What we saw at the time was a wedding venue on Pinterest.”
“Years ago we got married again at home—but shame works in weird ways.”
“It doesn’t mean you won’t fuck up again.”
What do you think about their plantation wedding?
