Buckle up, folks! 🚨 We've got a doozy of a family drama on our hands. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 Our protagonist, the self-proclaimed 'black sheep' 🐑, has had a rocky relationship with their parents from day one. Dad thought they were the product of an affair 😱, Mom resented them for the family strife 😠, and neither held back their disdain 😒. As the years went by, things only got worse... 📉

Our protagonist endured years of emotional abuse 😢, disownment for coming out 🏳️‍🌈, and vengeful antics from their father 😠. Mom always stood by Dad 👫, leaving them feeling alone and unsupported 😔. Now, with both parents passed away 💔, the siblings are arranging a ruby anniversary celebration 💍 and want the 'black sheep' to attend. But they've put their foot down 🙅‍♂️, saying they don't care that their parents are dead after the hell they put them through. The siblings are calling it a 'horrible' attitude 😠, but is it really? 🤔 Let's see what the internet has to say about this juicy family drama! 🍿
