Daughter wants to take away adopted son's hobby 🛹

A man adopted his daughter's child when she didn't want any responsibility for him. Now, his son is 16 years old and his daughter is engaged to her long-term boyfriend. When her fiancé and his kids came over to meet the family, the daughter was horrified to see her adopted brother's skating trophy on display. She called skateboarding a hobby for 'delinquents' and demanded that her brother stop skating. The man reminded her that he had parental rights over the son and refused to let her take away his hobby. Now, he's asking if he was in the wrong for laughing and holding his paternal rights over her head. What do you think - is he the asshole or not?
