Lillian Droniak, a 92-year-old TikTok sensation with 6 million followers, recently shared a series of videos about her ex-boyfriend Bruce’s funeral. In the first video, Droniak holds her flip phone with the caption, “January me: does our ex ever stop calling???” The next shot shows a picture of a tombstone with the caption, “November me,” and the caption, “Rip Bruce but now you can’t call me.” The video immediately went viral with 21.3 million views and 4.1 million comments.
In a subsequent video, Droniak recorded a “get ready with me” video as she did her makeup for Bruce’s funeral. She explained that she wanted to go to the funeral to say goodbye and make sure she looked presentable, but not too nice so as to not steal the show. The video has 45.1 million views and 8.1 million comments.

After the funeral, Droniak recorded another video of herself dancing around on her back porch, saying, “I think I slayed the funeral, but rip Bruce, you were handsome.” The caption reads, “This is the outfit I wore to my ex’s funeral, but I didn’t want to be rude and film this at the cemetery.”
While many people found Droniak’s videos amusing, not everyone was a fan. In her most recent video, Droniak shared that she received an email from a woman named Sue who claimed to be Bruce’s daughter. Sue had seen Droniak’s videos about Bruce’s funeral and expressed her disgust in the email. Sue’s email read, “I’m the daughter of your ex that just passed away. I can’t believe you made a joke on TikTok about him passing and you slaying at his funeral. You’re rude and I hope you stop ‘slaying’ real soon…if you know what I mean.”
i never regret slaying even if its at a funeral and it sounds like sue doesnt know how to slay
Overall, Droniak’s videos about Bruce’s funeral have sparked a mix of reactions, with some finding them amusing and others finding them inappropriate. Regardless of personal opinions, it’s important to remember to be respectful and considerate when discussing sensitive topics, such as the death of a loved one.
