A GRIEVING teenager has told how her mum bought a cardboard cut out of her dad for the dinner table after he was shot dead.
TikTok user Destiny, 18, shared a video of the cardboard version of her dad "chilling" at the table with her.
She captioned the video: "When your dad was murdered and your mom got a cardboard cut out of him and he’s just chilling at the dinner table."
It shows Destiny sitting at the dining table sipping on a drink through a straw before the camera flips to show a life-like cut out of her dad.
She jokingly gives him the side-eye while lip syncing an awkward "hey" to him across the table.
"Scared the s*** out of me when she first got it, still does at times," the caption said.
