Lottery winner revokes family member's trust fund access 🤔

After winning millions in the lottery, a Redditor created a trust fund for their extended family. However, after their cousin Dale applied for $75,000 for a brand new pickup truck, which was denied, the trust's trustee discovered that Dale had not made any payments and was only applying for help after he fell behind. When the lottery winner advised Dale to return the truck and get a more affordable vehicle, Dale made a Facebook post bashing the winner and saying he couldn't wait for them to die so he could inherit millions. The winner has decided to revoke Dale's access to the trust and has received mixed reactions from the family. Some agree with the decision, while others are calling them an AH. What do you think? Read on for more details and comments from Redditors.
