Grandpa banned from neighborhood for calling granddaughter and her friend pretty

A heartwarming reunion between a grandpa and his granddaughter turned sour when a neighbor complained about his innocent comment. The grandpa expressed his excitement to see his favorite little girl for the first time in over a year during her 7th birthday party, where he was introduced to her friends. Upon complimenting his granddaughter and her friend's dresses, a mom was reportedly offended and called him a "creepy old man."

Despite the grandpa's assurance that he only meant to express admiration for the girls, the mom requested that he be banned from the neighborhood altogether. Social media users have come to the grandpa's defense, assuring him that he did nothing wrong and that the comment was harmless.
