Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for what we have, but sometimes family gatherings can turn sour. This was the case for one teen who had her birthday celebration ruined by her cousin's entitled behavior. Despite her aunt's struggles with miscarriages, the teen felt it was time for her aunt to stop using her daughter's status as a rainbow baby as an excuse for her bad behavior. The confrontation led to tears and accusations of being an AH. Do you think the teen was justified in speaking up or should she have kept quiet to keep the peace?

Sweet 16 and Thanksgiving combined, what a birthday bash 🎉

Spoiled 'Rainbow Baby' Ruins Teen's Birthday 🎂👧

Thanksgiving is a time for family, food, and fun. However, for one teenager, it turned into a nightmare. Celebrating both Thanksgiving and her sweet sixteen, this young woman had high hopes for a day of joy and celebration. But, unfortunately, her spoiled cousin had other plans. The aunt had been through a lot with four miscarriages before the birth of her 'rainbow baby', so she spoils her daughter to no end. However, this has led to her daughter becoming a brat who throws tantrums when she doesn't get her way. During the birthday celebration, the cousin threw a fit because she didn't receive any gifts and ended up breaking the birthday girl's new makeup plate. To make matters worse, she ruined the birthday cake by blowing out the candles and smashing it. The birthday girl had had enough and called out her aunt for raising a spoiled brat, which caused a family feud. Was the birthday girl in the wrong for speaking her truth, or was she justified in calling out her spoiled cousin? Keep reading to find out what others had to say in the comments and reactions section.
