The Am I The A**hole Reddit sub is one of the most popular post categories on the platform. Every once in a while a post from the sub goes viral to introduce readers to a never-before-heard story. This time around, the same thing happened with a now popular post like ‘My sister-in-law is so pretty, I hate her.’
‘My sister-in-law is so pretty, I hate her’ explained the Reddit story
The IS ‘My sister-in-law is so pretty, I hate her’ Reddit story has gone viral not only across the platform but also in other places like TikTok, Twitter, and more. The original post was made on June 28, 2023. It has now been deleted from the Am I The A**hole subreddit. But copies of it have appeared on other subreddits.
The story has also left many people feeling that it is so scary that it might not be true. But here’s the story – The OP is a 34 year old woman. She and her husband Mark (34, M) sadly lost their baby at 22 weeks of pregnancy. “This was our first pregnancy that progressed so far, so we were full of hope,” the OP notes in her post. Since her disappearance, the OP claims she made it clear that she didn’t want to talk to anyone and didn’t want any visits. However, her sister-in-law Ella continued to send “food deliveries every now and then with stupid a** messages like “you’re being cared for” and “we’re here for you”, “thinking of you”.
Earlier in the post she describes her sister-in-law, Ella (30, F) as “a typical, annoying, annoying girl”. Ella’s food delivery and mental messages to the OP’s husband caused her to praise her thoughtfulness, which angered her. Although there were still niceties between the sisters-in-law, it all went downhill after Ella visited the OP.
OP freaked out and called her sister-in-law the C word
The OP explains how her sister-in-law called her to ask if they could all meet because of something urgent. “She apologized, saying she knew it wasn’t the right time, but the wedding is only a month away, and this conversation couldn’t be delayed any longer,” we learn.
Ella then tells the OP that she wants to delay her wedding to the OP’s brother by six months. It was originally scheduled to take place in a month. Paraphrasing her sister-in-law’s words, the OP reveals that she said, “I don’t think this is the best time to get married. I want you in my wedding party, and I doubt you’ll want to be around people asking you what happened.” However, things go downhill when Ella says, “Whenever you feel up to now we could have a girl’s day to get you a new dress.”
Disrupting her sister-in-law, brother, and mother who were present at the scene, the OP bumped into Ella saying the C-word. She feels that her sister-in-law is seeking “sympathy at my expense”. She also calls it a “handy and handy piece of work”. The sister-in-law runs out crying.
However, the story is not over yet. The OP’s brother and Ella’s fiance also wrote their side of the story on Reddit.
OP’s brother calls her a ‘racist’ in his post
“Jesus Christ Rachel. The next time you want to try to make yourself a victim (as you always do), do it on a site I don’t use almost every day,” he writes in his post.
He goes on to claim that the OP conveniently left out the details that her sister-in-law or Ella is ‘black.’ He claims that the OP called her more than the C-word and that he wouldn’t be allowed to post her exact words on the subreddit. “But I will prove it to everyone here: You are and always have been a bully, a racist and an a**hole,” he writes.
The situation becomes even more complicated when the brother reveals that Ella also had a miscarriage. He alleges that the OP’s response to a hit was “an eye roll and a smirk and then make insulting comments about how Ella should be ‘more careful’ because you thought she was a ‘bad kid’ working from home.
He tells her to delete his number along with his wife’s and mother’s. “There is Rot” he says.
Users react to a family fiasco
Although the original post on Am I The A**hole was deleted, many users got there in time to comment on it.
“Sorry for your loss but that’s not how you treat people,” one user shared.
“If I were in your family I would never make a note, without trying to be nice to you,” said the second.
“Your Future Sister-in-Law is adorable and you seem to be and always have been miserable,” said a third.
On Tiktok many users were horrified to learn about the story.
“What did you call her?” wrote a shocked TikTok user about a repost.
“My jaw really dropped at the ‘I called her’ part…” said another.
Many said they could not believe how crazy the story was, “there is no way this is true.”
