After catching heat for allowing her 15-year-old daughter to get married, the mother of a YouTube star has admitted the ceremony was staged to get views.
Danielle “Dani” Cohn’s fake wedding garnered more than three million views after it was posted on April 13th. The video shows Cohn marrying her 16-year-old boyfriend, Mikey Tua, in a Las Vegas wedding officiated by an Elvis impersonator.
The stunt drew a number of negative comments from viewers, many of whom criticized Cohn for tying the knot at such an early age.
Cohn’s mom, Jennifer, says she doesn’t understand what all the fuss was about. “It was a YouTube video like most YouTube people do for clickbait,” she says. “People prank and do all kinds of stuff on the internet.”
