What’s the quickest way to get yourself labeled as a jerk? Well, there are a lot of them, and in most cases, the answer is “by being a jerk.” But sometimes, things aren’t that simple. Sometimes, people get labeled as jerks when they actually did nothing wrong – they were just in a bad place at a bad time. A perfect example would be the situation that was recently shared by a 28-year-old caretaker to his mentally disabled brother. The story soon caught the attention of many internet users, inviting them to discuss the situation and determine who, in fact, was at fault.

A mom who had the wrong 👀 on a brother and his caretaker. 😡

This story, shared by a 28-year-old brother who is the caretaker of his autistic 21-year-old brother, Bill, is an example of the discrimination and prejudice that people living with autism often face. It starts with the caretaker taking Bill out for burgers and fries and to the toy store as a reward for doing his chores. When Bill expressed excitement for the barbies in the aisle, a woman and her daughter walked in and the woman suggested that they move to another aisle because she was uncomfortable with Bill's 'weird hand movements'. The caretaker was not happy with this request and so he told his brother to get what he wanted and the woman that her daughter could use a better role model. This story has sparked a lot of debate about whether or not the caretaker was justified in his reaction. Let's take a look at the comments and reactions to this Reddit post.
