Teen Girl Takes a Stand Against Unfair Rules 🙌

This brave 16-year-old girl finally reached her breaking point when her mom's boyfriend, Johnathan, tried to confiscate her phone during dinner. She stood up to him, declaring that he's not her dad and she doesn't have to obey his ridiculous rules. 😤👏 She even called him out for his own kids not wanting to see him and suggested he could write a book on how to make children hate their parents. Ouch! 😮💔 Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...
