Vegan mom slams family over ‘disgusting’ dinnertime behavior: ‘bizarre and selfish’

A woman’s sister has banned her from eating meat in front of her niece.

The woman took to Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum to discuss the matter. Her vegan sister recently had a baby named Bella and doesn’t want any family members eating meat in front of the child. However, the Reddit user has a weekly tradition of removing skin from her homemade fried chicken, wrapping it around her drumstick and feeding the remaining breast to her cat. 

“So my sister is vegan,” the user wrote. “We both live with our parents, as does her husband. Every week, I make fried chicken for me and my parents. […] My sister recently announced that she doesn’t want the family eating meat in front of Bella anymore. My dad gave her the, ‘my house my rules’ speech but my mom thinks we should accommodate my sister’s wishes. But it’s not like I give any animal products to Bella. She’s still vegan, with her diet monitored by the doctor.”

Then when the user did her weekly fried chicken tradition, it set the vegan sister off. 

“I was doing my degenerate routine of wrapping the breast skin around my drumstick and chowing into it. My sister slammed her fork down and started yelling at me that I was disgusting,” the user explained. “I pointed out to my sister that she ate my chicken during pregnancy due to cravings, but my mom told me that was a cheap shot and started siding with my sister and my dad told everyone to shut up and go to bed. I don’t know why, but I’m started to feel a little guilty.”

Most Reddit users didn’t agree with the vegan sister.

“The way she’s going about it though is bizarre and selfish,” one user wrote

“Your sister is bothered by it, she’s using the kid as an excuse,” another said

“Not her house. Not her rules,” someone added
