Father threatens to disown entitled children who refuse to work

A father has sparked a heated debate after telling his adult children that they won't inherit his savings if they don't get real jobs. The man, whose children work part-time as a gaming streamer and a social media influencer respectively, said he's not 'rich', but he'll never be uncomfortable again. He revealed that he often buys them groceries and has had several arguments with them over their refusal to get an education or real jobs. After his son implied that he'll make up for it when he passes, the father got real with them, telling them that they have no way of supporting themselves and that they need to grow up and get real jobs if they want his money. The argument resulted in both children accusing him of being manipulative and unsupportive. The post has generated a lot of discussion with some people supporting the father's tough stance, while others believe he's being too harsh. Keep reading to see what people are saying.
