Wearing a T-shirt of her face that aired on Jesse Watters Primetime, Madi said she discovered she was on the Fox News segment when her conservative father rang her to say he was "proud" of her.

She noted that she had not spoken to him for six months.

One person responded: "Okay but coming out on national news is actually so iconic."

Meanwhile, another fellow user wrote: "They don’t get sarcasm or satire - ever. It’s embarrassing."

Madi later joked: "This storytime has everything. Romance, scandal, controversy, coming out, estranged family members returning……"
