The couple's response to the hurtful comments certainly put the Internet trolls in their place.

A couple have brushed off hurtful comments made about their engagement photos.

Mzznaki Tetteh, a nurse from Ghana, posted a series of photos celebrating the exciting news with her fiance, Kojo Amoah.

However when the photo was shared over social media, Mzznaki was body-shamed by a number of users.

“RIP that mans spine [sic],” wrote one person, while another wrote: “You can see the struggle in his face”.

Her husband-to-be has also spoken out about the online abuse and how proud he is of his fiancee.

“To me, I have always been a fan of plus size women and I am so proud of my woman and I don’t care about what anybody says out there,” Kojo told GhanaWeb.

“In every society there are people who will try to discourage you from things that you seek to do but I am not bothered at all. And I don’t regret posting those pictures on Facebook,” he noted.

The happy couple plan to get married on June 25.
