But what happens when that friend fails to acknowledge their good fortune, and instead, attributes their success solely to hard work? This is the story of a video call that turned from a celebration into a heated debate about privilege, entitlement, and gratitude. 🎉💔

Accused of being ungrateful and unaware of her privileges, Julie stands her ground, leading to a fallout. Her friends are divided, some accusing the accuser of bitterness, while others question if Julie is truly oblivious to her good fortune. The internet has chimed in, and the verdict is... well, you'll have to read on to find out! 🍿🎭
