Dad faces backlash over ‘cruel’ response to son’s ‘surprise’ wedding: ‘Rude and uncalled for’

A man insulted his daughter-in-law’s (DIL) appearance and is getting roasted for it.

The father went on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” to find out if he was in the wrong. He and his wife never liked their daughter-in-law. But when his wife accidentally wore white to the daughter-in-law’s wedding, things seem to have exploded.

“My son got married eight months ago to a woman we’ve never liked,” he wrote. “They had a surprise wedding, meaning none of us knew we were going to a wedding and we were told it was just a cocktail party. My wife wore white. Now that I think of it my wife wears a lot of white and that makes DIL even more of a dumb*** for never warning us.”

Every since the wedding, the daughter-in-law has been upset that his wife wore white.

“She [DIL] had a wedding picture on social media and when someone commented who wore white, she wrote back ‘that’s my mother-in-law, she doesn’t like me’ and a laughing emoji,” he said. “My wife called her out on it and she played the victim and whined about my wife trying to upstage her. She has made a couple snide comments and told people who weren’t at the wedding that it was intentional.”

His son then told him why the daughter-in-law was furious about the incident.

“He said that she is insecure because when she showed the wedding pictures to her best friend, who couldn’t make it, the friend immediately commented that my wife is gorgeous,” he explained. “I guess her mom said something too. My wife used to model and not to be an ass, but she draws your eye much more than DIL. He said that she is insecure and she has always felt insecure around my wife. Also we are Hispanic and she is white and I guess her own mom was telling her she should tan and she was going to look pasty compared to everyone.”

But the daughter-in-law is continuing to harp on the issue.

“She made another comment recently about the picture being proof that she is the innocent one in the relationship and I snapped at her that I am sick of hearing about the white dress,” he continued. “And that maybe if she put more effort into her own appearance she would have been a beautiful bride and people wouldn’t be looking at her mother-in-law. She stormed off and my son is mad. He actually said his mom has great self-esteem (she doesn’t) so we should take the high road.”

Reddit users were not a fan of anyone in this scenario. The verdict was simply “everyone sucks.”

“Your hatred of this woman is so over the top. You’ve been purposefully cruel to her and I doubt this was the first time,” one user said.

“DIL was being purposefully deceptive and the original poster’s comment was extremely rude and uncalled for,” another stated.

“Low blows are never the right answer,” someone commented.
