Family reunion turns ugly after 10 years of silence 🤬

A man confronts his family after 10 years of silence caused by his niece's disrespectful behavior. His parents made his niece's birthday a priority over his own and spent the money they had saved for his birthday trip to NYC. He moved to New York and became an attorney with two sons. Recently, he attended a family reunion hoping to introduce his sons to their relatives. However, his niece's behavior was still disrespectful and he called her a 'crotch goblin, brat, and a shit stain' causing a rift with his family. Was he wrong to call her out or was he justified in his anger? Let's see what people have to say in the comments below.
