A 20-Year-Old Clapped Back At Her Brother’s "Deadbeat Dad" After He Called A Princess Peach Cake "Wrong"
People are also applauding the mother of the family for defending her daughter's decision to call him out.
This is 20-year-old Aniston from Tulsa, Oklahoma, and her large blended family. They're currently planning a fourth birthday party for her younger half-brother, Barrett.
Aniston told BuzzFeed News her little brother is obsessed with Super Mario characters. Last year, they bought him a Mario and Luigi–themed cake for his birthday. This year, the almost-4-year-old requested a Princess Peach cake.
The kids' mom, Shawna, was "thrilled" about the request and shared the cake design on her Facebook. But soon after, Barrett's dad — who both Shawna and Aniston described as a "deadbeat" who's "never been around"— commented on the cake, displeased. "That's just wrong!" Barrett's dad wrote.
Garrett promptly responded to her brother's dad's comment. "I'm pretty sure judging a 4-year-old's interests while simultaneously being an uninvolved parent is more wrong than a little kid liking Princess Peach," she wrote.
Shawna said several hours after her daughter posted her response, she got a text from Barrett's dad. He said if Aniston continues to "talk shit" about him, he'll ignore and unfriend Shawna.
Evidently irked by the text, she sent a lengthy response explaining to him all the reasons why she believes her daughter has "every right" to defend her younger brother against him.
"Who was there when Barrett was born (even though I cried and begged you)? Who cut his umbilical cord?" she wrote back. "Who was at his first birthday party when I begged you again but you chose to go fishing with your girlfriend? Who has babysat him when I need to run errands?"
