Mom bashes celebrity online for ignoring her kid; it completely backfires.

Mom bashes celebrity online for ignoring her kid; it completely backfires.


A mother posted about an unfortunate interaction with a celebrity... twice. The first time, she received major backlash, including from her family. Then, she came to Reddit hoping for a little more sympathy, and posted about it again.

'AITA (Am I the A-hole) for making a post about my daughter’s favorite celebrity being rude to us?'

My daughter and I were recently on vacation. We spent the day in an area that’s known to have a lot of rich/famous people and towards the end of the day we saw one of my daughter’s favorite celebrities (we’ll call her A) walking out of a store.

My daughter ran to the store but when she got near A, she was stopped by A’s security. They said that A’s there with her daughter for her daughter’s birthday and wants to focus on her daughter. My daughter was very upset because she’s been a fan of A for a very long time so she tried again for a picture but was turned away.

My daughter was crushed, so later that night I made a post talking about my experience with A. How she wouldn’t let anyone go near her and her daughter, the fact that her security was rude, and her not being willing to stop for a couple seconds for a picture.

I understand it’s her daughter’s birthday but a 1 minute interaction with a fan isn’t going to ruin her day and if it does, that girl needs to learn that the world doesn’t revolve around her.

The post ended up getting a lot of attention and a lot of people actually said my daughter and I were being entitled for expecting A to interrupt her daughter’s birthday for everyone that wants a picture. My husband also saw the post and said he couldn’t believe that I would bash her for trying to spend the day with her daughter.

I’m not trying to bash her for spending the day with her daughter but she wouldn’t be where she is without her fans so I think she at least owes it to them to take a picture. AITA (Am I the a-hole) for making the post about A?

What do you think?

Reddit wasted no time in ruling a brutal YTA (you're the a-hole).

'that girl needs to learn that the world doesn’t revolve around her' ... Kinda the lesson I'm thinking you and your daughter need to learn, tbh. YTA.

YTA, OP celebrities and famous people are just people who have the same rights and privacy all of us other non people do. I will never understand why people get so bent out of shape on a reaction from one of them as rude when they literally don’t owe us or anyone else a single thing. They have jobs like we do.

YTA. Your entitlement is clouding your judgment. The celebrity owes you nothing and she was with her daughter. Info: Out of curiosity how old is your daughter?

OP responds:

Oh, that makes it even worse. I was imaging she was 7 or 8 based on the behavior you described.

DazzlingPoint3901 agrees:

She's way too old to be acting this way. But, then again, if you're her mother, I can see why she was raised to have this entitlement.

This was a chance for her daughter to learn that she's not entitled to other people's time no matter how famous they are. As a woman, she will likely encounter men who feel entitled to her time to shoot their shot and this could have been an excellent lesson about respecting boundaries.

This could have also been a chance for her to learn to respect 'no' when she was told the first time not to bother the celebrity any more. Instead, the mother had to make it all about her daughter's disappointment and how the celebrity is responsible for managing that.
