Salenger confirmed the happy news with a post on Twitterlast week, and while the response from many was positive, others felt the engagement came too soon after the death of Oswalts previous wife. Michelle McNamara died last April due to a combination of prescription medications and an undiagnosed heart problem.
On Saturday, Oswalt called out the trolls with a post on Facebook, in which he shared a link to a blog post titled,A Widows Rage Defense of Patton Oswalts Engagement, by a woman named Erica Roman. (Oswalt also shared the blog on Twitter.)
I expected some bitter grub worms to weigh in (anonymously, always always always) with their much-needed opinions when I announced my engagement last week. And I decided to ignore them, he wrote, adding, But yeah, I felt this rage. And Erica articulated it better than I could have ever hoped.
Salenger also weighed in, replying to her fiancs tweet with a note as well as a link to Romans blog post.
Everyone has been so lovely to us ALL of Michelles siblings and friends and family a few trolls have strong opinions, Salenger wrote. But I think for Patton, having met and found love after over a year of intense therapy and openly grieving and dealing with his painI am grateful to be the one who helps him climb out of the depths of grief and find some joy again. And most of all Alice is happy and feels loved.
Following McNamaras death, Oswalt was extremely open about dealing with grief and learning to raise the couples young daughter, Alice, on his own.
Ill never be at 100 percent again, but that wont stop me from living this, hesaid in October of last year, after returning to stand-up comedy.
Oswalt and Salenger have been dating for about three months, though they just went public with their relationship in June at the premiere of the movie Baby Driver in Los Angeles.
