From disowned to rich: Struggling parents come asking for help

After being disowned by her super-religious parents and extended family for working at a strip club, a 28-year-old woman now owns a house, a Tesla, an apartment building, and investments. However, her parents recently contacted her asking for help as they declared bankruptcy and are struggling to survive in an old camper due to COVID-19. She refuses to help them as they disowned her and according to their religion, her money was earned through sinning. While her mother cried and her father wondered where they went wrong, she stood her ground. Now, she wonders if she was an a**hole for not helping her struggling parents despite her wealth. Read on to see what Redditors have to say about the situation.
