Two siblings had a fun-filled pool party with the kids before things took a sinister turn when a 7-year-old boy called out his young cousin for being “fat,” resulting in some shocking opinions from these “fat-shaming” parents.
Poolside Play Takes a Shocking Turn
Weekend pool days were a tradition for close siblings Stella and Carl, but this seemingly cheerful gathering took a dark turn.
A Splash of Hurtful Words
In the midst of innocent poolside play, 7-year-old Peter hurled a hurtful remark at his cousin Sophia, making her distressed.
Fun in the Sun
It all started when Sophia decided to jump in the pool, a favourite for kids of all ages.
A Bigger Splash
Peter was startled by the size of the splash as it made water go up his nose, before unleashing a shocking fat-shaming rant for someone of his age.
Shocking Comment Revealed
Peter yelled, “Maybe if you weren’t so fat, you wouldn’t have made such a big splash.”
A Protective Parent Speaks Up
Stella swiftly intervened, urging Peter to apologise for his hurtful comment, showing off his protective instincts.
A Laughing Rejection
Peter’s reaction was not remorse but laughter and sticking out his tongue – a hurtful comment now combined with poor manners.
Tears by the Pool
Sophia climbed out of the pool in tears, a painful sight to see for a mother of a 12-year-old girl.
Brothers at Odds
Stella turned to her brother Carl for support in addressing the situation, with hopes that the father could help teach his son a lesson.
Typical Childish Behaviour?
Carl’s response was unexpectedly dismissive, downplaying the hurtful remark by saying, “kids will be kids.”
An Attack at the Parenting
A simple apology request showed Carl’s true beliefs after he suggested that the comment contained some truth about Sophia’s weight.
A Mother’s Tearful Admission of Weight Gain
Stella later admitted that although her daughter had gained some weight, their doctor had assured them she was not fat by any means.
Displeased Wife Enters the Fray
Carl’s wife, Sylvia, stepped into the debate and sided with her husband’s stance that Sophia had gained weight, “I couldn’t believe I was hearing this from another woman,” Stella revealed.
Carl’s Comments Get Worse
“Maybe you should be focusing on Sophia’s health instead of telling my son what to do. Being overweight is not healthy, you know,” Carl argued with his sister.
Blocking Brotherly Love
Then Stella took a decisive step and blocked communication with Carl, uninviting them to any future family gatherings.
Mother Calls for Peace
Their mother suggested they were “both at fault” and pleads for them to forgive each other.
Forgive and Forget?
Now, Stella has turned to Reddit to see if she should forgive her brother or continue waiting for an apology.
Blame the Mother?
One Reddit user suggested that Stella did the right thing by saying, “No more using the pool at your place. Tell mom she should have raised your brother better; he is ignorant as is his son,” blaming their mother for Carl’s behaviour.
