Shocking reason doctor was uninvited from best friend's wedding

A doctor in the US has revealed the shocking reason she claims she was uninvited from her best friend's wedding, after having spent thousands of dollars to attend.

In a now viral TikTok video, Emily Long explained she was due to fly out to Texas over the weekend after asking for some time off, despite the fact she is currently on ICU rotation due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Emily, who is currently a plastic surgery resident at Harvard University in Massachusetts, said she had contacted her friend beforehand to reassure her that she had been tested for coronavirus was all clear to attend the wedding.

"She totally freaked out when she found I take care of sick people," Emily said in the clip, which has been viewed more than 4.4M times.

"Who would have thought a doctor takes care of sick people. So I was uninvited because I made a lot of people and her feel uncomfortable."


Emily received thousands of comments on the clip with many people slamming the bride-to-be's reaction.

"But she’s having a WEDDING in TEXAS. How nervous can she really be," one person said.

"She is having big wedding and then is worried about you? Oh no honey," another agreed.

While a third said: "Please tell me she's not your friend anymore? I'm so sorry that happened to you."

Emily stressed in the comments she wrote: "two negative PCR tests and the knowledge that I would NEVER put anyone I care about at risk 'simply' aren't enough in these crazy times".

And in a follow up clip she explained she decided to cancel her flights and save the credit, instead deciding to work instead.

"I am working because I have a commitment to my job, my patients and my program," Emily said
