Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia's prenup photos in Africa set the internet abuzz after it was criticized for being distastefully done, which Fashion Pulis reported.

Coleen shared some of their photos on her Instagram account and she wrote, "It’s been way too long... Really excited to FINALLY share our #Ethiopia photos with you guys!"
A Facebook post by Rachel Ravana thinks their prenup photos were 'heartbreaking and enraging' at the same time.
"I don't think we should all admire a prenup photoshoot making background props out of Ethiopian women & children. These photos are heartbreaking & enraging at the same time. I understand that prenup photoshoots get so extra these days but to this extent?"
Read some of the comments from netizens below:
"Luh! What kind of statement is this couple trying to express?"
"ano ba talaga ang gustong palabasin ng photoshoot na ito. Na ang gaganda namin, ang mamahal ng damit namin. Pero kayo. Oh soo poor, wawa naman."
"nasobrahan siguro sa blackpanther tong magjowang to"
"Parang master and slaves dating tsk"
"Nakakalungkot. Para bang nagmamataas Royal family ang dating. Hindi nakakatuwa ang concept."
"Sa dami ng magagandang places in Ethiopia, they chose that concept pa. Seriously? Nega, insensitive, tacky and offensive."
"Ang kasal ang alam ko is about two people in love. Saan ang love? Bakit may mahihirap na tribo as background? So mahirap sila, kayong dalawa alta, ganon? Paki explain ang inachieve nila dun"
Some netizens came to the couple's defense and think that there is nothing wrong with their prenup photos.

"They are not racist! They are showing the beauty of the people there! The scenery! So ikaw pag may isa kayong barkada na ita ang kulay di kayo pwede magpa picture kasi racist ka!!! Wala talaga maputi dun maski san ka maghanap!"
"As long as the people at the background got paid or they gave them gifts then I think there's nothing wrong with it. People nowadays napaka righteous na wala aa lugar"
"So anong gagawin nila?Magpaitim?Magsuot ng same na damit?Para di masabing racist?What the hell are you people??!So judgmental!"
