Someone Calls Patton Oswalt ‘Creepy’ For Remarrying After His Wife’s Death, So He Responds

We’re back with yet another ‘burn’ from the world of social media, this time from stand-up comedian and The King of Queens star Patton Oswalt.

Oswalt and his wife Meredith were celebrating their one-year anniversary in a sweet and cheesy Twitter exchange, but one guy decided to shit on their happiness with a rude and insensitive remark.

Oswalt was previously married to Michelle McNamara, the mother of his little girl, Alice, before she tragically passed away in her sleep in 2016. Heartbroken and bereft, he found hope and happiness in Meredith, and they have since married. Exactly why this person decided to comment on Oswalt’s personal life and choices only he knows, but he got the response that his comment deserved! People applauded Oswalt’s comeback, while adding their own thoughts on the matter. Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

I read somewhere that men who were happily married tend to remarry if their spouse dies. Mr. Oswalt went through one of the most traumatic experiences I can imagine (his wife died in her sleep). He deserves all the happiness he can find.

Who the heck would downvote this? It's totally true (and super nice, BTW).

I lost love of my life many years ago. I cried and suffered for years after that! I wish I had moved on and found a beautiful love like this man did. God sent him a new chance to be happy again and that´s the best for a broken heart.
