FARGO, ND (PIX11) — A mother punished her daughter by selling her Katy Perry tickets online, but that’s not what’s getting people up in arms about her parenting.
Cindy Bjerke sold her 18-year-old daughter’s $110 tickets on Facebook with the headline: “spoiled brat daughter doesn’t deserve these tickets, for sale.”
The post to the Fargo Garage Sale page got 200 likes before it was taken down by administrators because of how controversial it became.
Bjerke won what she says was “a majority” of supportive comments as well as criticism.
“I think a lot of parents are like me,” Bjerke told WDAZ. “They feel like they’re being bullied on how they should parent their own children.”
But not everyone was buying it.
“I don’t think I’d go as far as publicly chastising my child for the whole world to see,” one man told WDAZ.
Bjerke doesn’t mind the criticism, and stands by her claim she never meant to embarrass her daughter, only to teach her a lesson.
“It doesn’t matter what side you’re on, you’re always wrong to somebody,” the mom said.AlertMe
