Weddings seem to bring out the worst in some people. And it doesn't get much worse than talking trash about a 5-year-old girl on the internet, especially when that girl considers you her "aunt" and was going to be your flower girl. A guy recently shared his wedding horror story on Reddit, asking people to weigh in on whether he's an "a**hole" for wanting to pull his daughter from his friend's wedding after discovering his friend had trashed his 5-year-old daughter in a public post. Needless to say, the internet deemed him "not the a**hole" for this one.
Basically, he and his husband were going to attend the wedding and their daughter was going to be the flower girl. He explains:
The wedding is in 6 months. To be clear, my husband and I are gay and we were going to attend the wedding but I wasn't going to be in it. (It was discussed at length, but I didn’t want to be the one bridesgroom or whatever).
My friend "V" has a great relationship with my 5 y/o and is like an aunt. V asked if she could at least be a flower girl; I was honored and agreed.
