A woman is accused of trying to break up her family over a McDonald's breakfast. After finishing her Master's degree, the 25-year-old moved back to her hometown to be closer to her family. On her brother's first day of high school, she went to his mom's house with breakfast from McDonald's. However, she was informed that her brother was at his dad's house because of his behavior towards his step-siblings. She then left to spend time with her dad and brother. Her mom later texted her, calling her an a**hole for not offering breakfast to her step-siblings and not taking them out with her brother.
