The woman called her brother out and he ended up calling her a name. Was the woman in the wrong for confronting her brother or was she right to stand up for her beliefs? Read on to find out what happened next.

Apology for grammar, but no apologies for calling out brother's 'upgrade'.

Sister defends ex-SIL against brother's 'upgrade' at family gathering 🤨

A family gathering turned into a heated argument when a brother introduced his new girlfriend as an 'upgrade' to his ex-wife. The sister, who had always been close to her brother's ex, took offense to the comment and pulled her brother aside to explain why it was inappropriate. She revealed that the new girlfriend was loud, rude, and obnoxious, and had encouraged her brother to drink and cheat on his ex-wife. The brother didn't take the criticism well and called his sister a b*tch. Though she regrets attacking the new girlfriend's looks, the sister stands by her defense of her ex-SIL and vows to silently judge her brother's choices from afar. Read on for some reactions to this family drama.
