A young woman with a finger condition underwent a procedure similar to Botox to alleviate pain. However, her friend's girlfriend overheard the conversation and misunderstood that it was cosmetic surgery. The girlfriend then made repeated comments about how important it is to be yourself and not mess with natural beauty. The woman finally snapped when the girlfriend made a comment on a group call, shaming her for having mommy pay for Botox. The woman then proceeded to tell the girlfriend about her health issues and how the procedure gave her hope. The girlfriend felt alienated and later messaged the woman, blaming her for not telling her the procedure was medical. The woman's mutual friends are split on who is the a**hole in this situation. Read on to find out more.
