A man spent more than $17,000 to write a marriage proposal in the sky and diss famous TV and podcast host Joe Rogan, The Wrap has reported. According to the outlet, earlier this week people in Los Angeles noticed several messages written in the sky. First residents of LA saw: "Will you marry me Mollie Pratt?"

Then after the girl apparently agreed, the following messages appeared in the sky: "She said yes! I love you more than anything. Excited to spend my life with you. Until death do us part".
These messages alone would be enough to become one of the most original marriage proposals, but the lucky bridegroom decided that something was missing…
"One more thing ... Joe Rogan is literally 5 foot 3", read the last message.

According to The Wrap, which cited the company Sky Typers, the man paid $17,500 for ten messages total.
It appears social media users did not appreciate the man's sense of humour…
What's the big deal if someone is 5'3"? Is that bad or something? I wonder what the motivation was for writing that....?— Matt (@CallendoKarate) June 13, 2021
Isn’t it right to belittle someone for something they can’t control?— Cynthia Brumfield (@msbrumfield) June 12, 2021
Even critics of Rogan criticised the lovestruck man.
Don't really like Rogan but why is it ok to demean a guys height.— PW Lives (@lives_pw) June 12, 2021
Others deemed that Rogan was much taller.
I’m 5’10 and met him after a show. He was no shorter the 5’6— ChrisMarston (@TheChrisMarston) June 13, 2021
Joe is a lot of things but taller than 5'3 is not one of them.— Urban Rural (@RedWhtBlue) June 13, 2021
Many netizens imagined how the podcast host would react to the news.

Yet others said the person should have used skywritten messages to speak about more important issues.
If Californians cared as much about state politicians and forest management, as they do Joe Rogan, it'd be a decent place to live.— Dontaevius Jefferson (@DontaeJ2408) June 12, 2021
Confident he would not care. Should have donated the money to charity. Would have had a far more significant impact than some virtue signalling re-tweets from an echo chamber.— nate dawg (@chindownhandsup) June 13, 2021
Some drew attention to the pilot misspelling the word literally, missing the R.
I hope he got a discount because the sky writer spelled literally wrong. pic.twitter.com/mfIdfIpavO— A Progressive Libertarian (@Tiggersdad2) June 12, 2021
One user posted a picture showing that the pilot fixed the mistake.

This is not the first time that people have made fun of Rogan's height. In 2015, someone edited a page on Wikipedia, claiming he was 5 feet. Later Rogan, who has 7.3 million followers on Twitter and 12.7 on Instagram, wrote that his height is 5'8.
