A woman who went viral after sharing the unique way she and her husband express their love has defended their “cringey” act after being brutally roasted online.

Lilianna Wilde and Sean Kolar amassed millions of views documenting a “love surge”, which they state happens when they are overflowing with adoration for one another and they just can’t contain it.

Lilianna described it as a physical reaction to their intense emotions that results in full-body tremors while they embrace.

The married pair, who described it themselves as the “cringiest most couple-y thing ever”, went on to explain that the only way to fix an overwhelming love surge was to embrace the other with a full body hug.

Despite racking up almost six million views with their unique act of love, the clip wasn’t met with the response the couple hoped, with their video being widely mocked – leaving Lilianna in tears.

Backlash came in thick and fast for the couple after her original TikTok video was shared on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“I could’ve happily gone through my entire life without ever knowing what a ‘love surge’ is,” one person stated.

“This has got to be the most cringey video, the secondhand embarrassment is on level 1000,” another lamented.

As one raged: “It’s OK to keep some things private.”

Meanwhile others insisted the clip “made me want to throw up”, as some disgusted users said: “This is too embarrassing to watch”.

“This has put me off a relationship,” one woman scoffed.

“I think I want to stay single forever,” another agreed.
