The viral video proved popular on social media which prompted the families to release a joint statement. 

"We didn't expect the incident to take such a negative turn. The two families are now in an awkward position and the newlyweds have suffered because of it too," they say.

"The father-in-law, who was given too much to drink on his son's big day, deeply regrets his actions. We ask social media users to stop sharing the videos and let our family sort this out privately.

"We do not wish to become famous, nor do we want to become the butt of every person's joke. Had this happened in your family, would you be sharing it like this?"
