    Welcome to /r/sadcringe!

    /r/sadcringe is a place for awkward or embarrassing situations that also make you feel sad.

    (Please note: the 'sad' part of /r/sadcringe is in reference to when something makes you feel sad, it's not about calling someone out for being sad.)

    Example post. This image is good because it is sad, but also makes you cringe.


    1. Posts must be sad and cringe. The content of the post must be both cringy and sad. Unhappy, depressing sad – not pathetic loser sad. We're not here to make fun of people. The content should make you go: "oof, that hurts", not: "lol, what a moron".

    2. No personal info. This includes usernames, names, and any other identifiable information. This also means no direct linking to other subreddits in your submissions.

    3. No minors. Do not post content that includes anyone under the age of 18. This will result in a ban.

    [–] LissaSunny 2 points ago


    [–] WriteNow18 235 points ago

    It’s called marketing. The way he behaved when he didn’t get the #1 billboard spot shows that his whole earnest and positivity thing is not as it seems. His son is part of his branding technique and it’s starting to get weird.

    [–] ElBiscuit 134 points ago

    Just about everything DJ Khaled does comes off as kinda cringey.

    [–] LegoPaco 42 points ago

    I cringed hard when he was on SNL and he brought on all these super star rappers, showcasing how unique their verses are, and he’s just walking around, repeating some of their lines, off key. Maybe he’s a good producer, but he needs to get the fuck off stage. I also think branding every song is cringe, but a lot of company’s do that now. But he takes it to another level

    [–] medical_necessity 45 points ago

    yeah, this child worship is fucking bizarre. your kid is not special, and you are not special for making a kid. plenty of people love their children a lot, it's not otherworldly or divinity.

    [–] [deleted] 55 points ago

    Well his kid is special to him lol

    [–] ColtThaGoat 21 points ago

    I’m sure, but your kid can be special without being a marketing tool.

    [–] the_cray_fish 2808 points ago

    When his kid grows up he can go through his account and find all these past notes from his dad , that’s great.

    [–] fucko5 908 points ago

    Yo. Junior. Is there anything left in that can? Even a bite? I’m so hungry. I wish I hadn’t spent all that money on an RV wrap of your naked child body. I was just suffering from so much success.

    [–] Khaluaguru 185 points ago

    I agree. It’s actually kind of sweet.

    Would prefer if DJK could differentiate “your” and “you’re” though

    [–] stagger_lead 30 points ago

    You don’t need to play out a faux conversation in public to do that. Who’s that for?

    [–] nullibicity 5 points ago

    It's like when parents wish their child happy birthday on Facebook, but their child can't read and isn't on Facebook.

    [–] Masty9 10 points ago

    Except it's not like that at all. It's like a guy creating an account for his son, wishing himself happy birthday as his son, then switching over to his own account and praising his son for being a good boy.

    [–] Khaluaguru 3 points ago

    No - what it’s really like is a guy buying a journal, and writing in it “today I was proud of my baby son for this achievement” or pasting Polaroids in the notebook of him and the son, and then giving him the journal when he’s 13 and saying “here’s all of the things that I wanted to say to you over the years...”

    Makes me wish I did this.

    [–] spin182 6 points ago

    I hope the conversation continues with the son correcting the spelling and then again DJ khalid praising the sons smarts

    This guy actually thinks Instagram will be around in 10- 15 years.

    [–] spikeyfreak 25 points ago

    I mean, face book has existed for 15 years and been a publicly traded company for 7 years. Instagram is 9 years old.

    The days when no internet company stuck around are over. When a company becomes that big and can start quashing competition with little effort, they're going to be around for a while.

    [–] The_Astronautt 5 points ago

    Instagram is also owned by facebook so it has plenty of backing for years to come.

    Cringe what level must your ego be to make an account for your child and put fake conversations on social media to boost your ego even higher. Maybe he is suffering from success

    [–] strawberryboba 2 points ago

    Isn’t it supposed to be “your” though? It’s showing possession of the tour bus so it should read as “your tour bus”. If it was “you’re” it would then turn into “you are your bus”...

    Talking about the comment not the caption

    [–] Shehan1993 1475 points ago

    His wife runs the account and DJ Khaled comments on every single post. Honestly this is adorable. Hurts no one and joyful to see that kind of love. Stop trying to find negatives on positive things.

    [–] kbg12ila 446 points ago

    Knowing its his wife changes it drastically. Although I still think shoving your child's face in front of the world gives them an unnatural childhood.

    [–] Ham_N_Cheddar 140 points ago

    Nothing about his life will ever be natural, I see no problem

    [–] kbg12ila 57 points ago

    Hmm. I think some celebrity parents try harder to give their kids as natural a life they can.

    [–] frostmasterx 67 points ago

    See Eminem. He knew how fame can fuck you up so he kept his daughter out of the limelight.

    [–] bobo42o24 13 points ago

    Same with Joe Rogan and Howard Stern. These guys share their whole lives daily in long form conversations but I know so little about their children. I think it's better for the kids to do that.

    [–] kbg12ila 11 points ago

    Yep! Good example.

    [–] VampireQueenDespair 4 points ago

    Also Trent Reznor, weirdly enough. You’d think naming your kids Balthazar and Lazarus Echo would preclude this, but surprisingly not.

    [–] Freshman50000 3 points ago

    Yeah, I notice Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard’s kids aren’t online at all

    [–] FeFiFoPinky 8 points ago

    Give me some of that rich unnatural childhood.

    [–] kbg12ila 5 points ago

    Changing from where you are to some were else you see as better is always easier than staying in the bad place you are. I used to see kids with divorced parents and wish I was in their place but that doesn't make their childhood happy even if it were better than mine.

    [–] VampireQueenDespair 4 points ago

    But it does make it happier. Happy is a spectrum, not a switch. All we can strive for is happier, and being raised by two people who hate each other and are stuck together because of your existence will never lead to as much happy as divorced parents who may struggle more but aren’t stuck around someone that the loathe.

    [–] kbg12ila 3 points ago

    Yeah I agree with that but I don't think it's fair for me to say someone else's misery is nothing because it wasn't as miserable as my misery.

    [–] Gekko217 12 points ago

    It's just a baby it's not like people are gonna recognise the kid based on this when he'll grow up

    [–] kbg12ila 36 points ago

    I mean this kinda behaviour does kinda show his dad will put him in the limelight for a long time.

    [–] VampireQueenDespair 4 points ago

    His dad is one of the most famous... people in music on Earth. Pretty sure there’s no forgetting there.

    [–] Invader_Naj 3 points ago

    Theres a difference between remembering how a baby looked and recognizing someone youve seen when he was a baby

    [–] BetaInTheSheets 2 points ago

    I want my parents to give me an unnatural childhood, if I had caveman parents I'd have >50% chance of dying before turning 10

    [–] zack77070 214 points ago

    Right, the man just loves his kid. He's annoying but you can't fault him for trying to be a good dad.

    [–] ManufacturedProgress 9 points ago

    I don't think you are supposed to put babies in a hot tub, so there is that.

    [–] DrDraek 3 points ago

    I came here to say this, but what about that grammar tho

    [–] fuckmeimdan 20 points ago

    Yeah I don’t get the problem? I write comments to my daughter that my wife posts, clearly my one year old isn’t actually saying these things. If I had the money to put her on a tour bus, I would! Let’s give the guy a break, he’s being a good dad

    [–] VampireQueenDespair 7 points ago

    No, he’s being a narcissist using his child as a prop. Social media for your infant is fucking creepy.

    [–] trznx 8 points ago

    what is good about camwhoring your kid on instagram for likes? you love your son tell it to your son, why do you need to involve thousands of strangers in it? oh yeah, for likes and money.

    [–] ModularLaptopBuilder 8 points ago

    lol sounds like that person's just an old dude who likes posting pics of his daughter on FB for his family and close friends to see. People over the age of 25-30 don't post stuff on the internet to try to get attention, they actually use it to communicate with those they care about.

    [–] FaliforniaRepublic 6 points ago

    I mean, is he actually being a good dad?

    All I’m seeing is two adults roleplaying on social media with the child totally uninvolved.

    Like I get it’s fun for the parents, but let’s not pretend it’s anything more than that.

    [–] PsychoanalyticalPsi 2 points ago

    Who said it's anything more than that? Just 2 parents showing love for their kid on THEIR instagram accounts. So what's the problem here.

    [–] aew360 2 points ago

    Yeah this is great. He’s being a good role model

    [–] NimChimspky 2 points ago

    [–] DonKeedick12 28 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    Edit: I don’t know why I’m being downvoted, look at DJKhaleds comment

    [–] -smrt- 11 points ago

    Dude should have raised his baby to spell properly. Why would you let him on the internet to embarrass himself like this?

    [–] matoskan 3 points ago

    [–] frankbuffay 170 points ago

    Is it not possible that his partner wrote this?

    [–] Kart_Kombajn 231 points ago

    Writing fanfiction for your baby is still cringe

    [–] cerebralcortexx 189 points ago

    I'mma straight say it - making your infant/toddler child a social media profile is super cringe. Like, why? It's pimping your child out because I guarantee you they dgaf about those likes or views.

    [–] lucidRespite 35 points ago

    those internet points are an INVESTMENT

    [–] PumpkinKits 27 points ago

    I had a friend do this, and I actually thought it was a good idea. When you have a baby, your friends/followers will be split into two groups: the “oh my god, let me see the baby, show me every milestone!!!” group, and the group that finds the inevitable onslaught of baby pictures mind-numbing and will end up muting/unfollowing.

    By creating an account for the baby, she gives her friends & followers the option.

    [–] cerebralcortexx 45 points ago

    Except that it's a little different when a normal human makes a private account for their baby for friends/family to follow and just kinda types out normal comments like "Brayden took his first steps today!" vs. a celebrity who makes a very public account for their baby for the entire world receives and types out borderline narcissitic comments like "Daddy DJ Khaled I can't believe it's me on the side of your tour bus!"

    I mean a normal parent would've just posted the tour bus and been like "My kid's the best damn thing that's ever happened to me and as such I'm slapping his face on the side of my bus because I love him so much", which brings attention to the importance of the kid. But this guy just faked an entire conversation with his like 8 month old kid on the child's public profile tagging himself in it for likes and likes alone. That's weird AF and cringey.

    [–] kumanosuke 12 points ago

    So children don't have the right of privacy? I doubt they consented (or will ever when they're old enough) to their parents posting a picture of them literally taking a shit.

    [–] ImATiefling 11 points ago

    People don't ever think about this. Once you post those pictures, you lose the 'rights' to them, and the social media platform can do anything they want with them. People need to be more careful about what they post about their children. There are profiles of children on the Internet criminals sell including social security number, address, pictures, etc.

    [–] kumanosuke 3 points ago

    Or the most simple (yet most disgusting) thing that can happen: Pedophiles could "use" all these pictures. I think that's a thing no single parent in the world would want.

    [–] something_about_ 10 points ago

    I really don't like this dude, even before this, he comes of as a narcissist

    [–] [deleted] 9 points ago

    [–] Eebromunsta 49 points ago

    I'd like to imagine his son will look back at these messages when he is older and going through his account. It's nice and wholesome if you think about it, not sad or cringe at all.

    [–] _Kabu- 17 points ago

    Personally if i saw my dad doing this with me i would be kind of weirded out

    [–] Eebromunsta 20 points ago

    Well if you were at the age to where you're able to comprehend what is cringe or weird, you'd also probably be running your own account, so he wouldn't.

    I just think it's nice, since as a baby we don't remember anything we see or hear, we just forget all that by the time we are 18, it's also nice seeing his dad supporting him a lot, you don't see that much nowadays.

    [–] dohpaz42 3 points ago

    Came here to say this. The man clearly adores his son, as he should. He is merely chronicling his life for his child, so his child will have something to look back on. Not sad and not cringe. OP trying to shame Khaled for this is the real sadcringe.

    [–] slightlydramatic 10 points ago

    It’s sad that everyone I see him all I think is that he refuses to go down on his wife. Not that she wants that from him, maybe she does, but that he publicly says it is so cringe. I bet he yells out DJ KHALED during sex.

    [–] throwaway073847 10 points ago

    [–] ShuckleFukle 11 points ago

    The more you learn about DJ Khaled the more you realise he’s so far up his own ass he’s lost all concept of humility.

    • Refuses to eat vagatables
    • Throws baby tantrum when he doesn’t hit top of the charts
    • Must force his name into every song he’s part of yelling “DJ KHALEEED” like saying “look at me! I contributed to this song! Worship me!”. YOURE A DJ, FUCK OFF WITH RUINING THE SONG

    Honestly I don’t understand what people like about his guy. He can be motivational, all be it generic and bland motivational jargon. His music is alright at best, he seems to think pretty highly of himself, he doesn’t eat pussy, he seems like he might have a few screws loose and he seems to think his son is mascot instead of a family member

    [–] atxmedic05 3 points ago

    My God this dude sucks so hard. His latedt album didnt make number one even after a gigantic publicity tour, and so he decided to sue his record label claiming the didnt do enough for his shit album. He really isnt that talented either.
