How many crazy stories have we read about demanding brides who lose their humanity at the thought that their perfect photos could be ruined by a bridesmaid who doesn’t look like a Pinterest model? Spoiler alert: A lot.

So there’s no way that a bride would when it makes sense to ask her sister-in-law, who will be attending her wedding reception, to cover up her tattoos with expensive tattoo-covering makeup, just to see what her wedding looks like. She wants to, doesn’t she? Well, this story, posted to Reddit’s “AITA?” may complicate your opinion on that.

It may have been removed from Reddit, but it is still kept where all the controversial posts haunt us in screenshot form: on Twitter.

Twitter users @Sorrelish posted a screenshot of the AITA post along with the caption: “This will make you turn 180 degrees so fast you’ll take your eyes off like in a Tom and Jerry cartoons.” And she’s not wrong.

The bride has a good point here…

The title of the post, “AITA for making my SIL cover her tattoo with makeup for my wedding?” make it look like we’re about to hear from a crazy little bride.

“For reasons that are about to become obvious,” she dared to write, “I am not close to my SIL, but it was very important to my fiancé that she would attend the wedding reception so I agree with that.

“However, she has tattoos all over her chest/shoulders and her dress has spaghetti straps,” OP continued. This is where your alliance will change. Trust me. “The tattoos are very unfortunate,” she wrote. “One is number 1488, one is confederate flag, and one is ‘white and proud’.” Surprised aren’t you? On top of that, she also has one of the “Spongebob Stones While Smoking”.

Most people seem to think the bride is right in the context.

The number 1488 is a popular symbol of white supremacist hatred — 14 is an abbreviation of the slogan “14 Words” coined by white supremacist and terrorist David Lane. The tagline is, “We must secure the survival of our people and the future for white children.”

88 refers to “Heil Hitler” (since H is the eighth letter of the alphabet). According to the Anti-Defamation League, “Together, the numbers form a shared endorsement of white supremacy and its beliefs.”

Some on Twitter suggested that the bride should cancel the wedding.

Apparently, the Confederate flag was a racist symbol, “white and proud” also upheld white supremacy, and the stoning of Spongebob was just ludicrous. I also don’t want these tattoos on my wedding. In fact, I don’t think I want this person in my wedding.

OP asked her SIL for professional stage makeup to cover up her tattoos, and SIL was extremely upset. Her fiancé doesn’t like the tattoos but thinks his future wife is “making the bride” because he doesn’t want hate symbols to be visible at her wedding. According to the OP, “Her argument is that she’s not really a Nazi, she’s just proud to be white but I don’t want that in my wedding photos.”

Some have come up with creative ideas to avoid this situation.

Sorry, but that’s BS. You may not tattoo 1488 and the Confederate flag on your body unless you are racist beyond belief. As one commenter wrote, “The ‘proud’ people tell everyone they’re 62% Irish or whatever. They don’t know the hate symbols tattooed on their bodies!”

But for the most part, people just want her to run.

In the comments, the OP clarified that if her tattoo wasn’t offensive, she wouldn’t care. They are just enough to make many people feel unsafe.

And the fact that this woman’s fiancé sided with his apparently Nazi sister makes me seriously question whether she should marry this guy. “He doesn’t approve of the tattoos,” she wrote in the comments, “but since she had them years ago (with the exception of Spongebob), he doesn’t think it’s fair to punish her for them. equal.”

Either way, it’s a bad situation.

However, this doesn’t seem to be the case for a restored former white supremacist who is ashamed of their past, tries to correct the mistake, and is planning to have those tattoos removed. . Here’s a woman who is still “pure and proud” and doesn’t seem to think she needs to apologize for it.

That’s what’s very confusing about the fiance’s stance. He’s too lenient with his super racist sister, and too quick to call his concerned fiancée “bride” because he doesn’t want a loud and proud Nazi in the crowd. her wedding.

This is just to show you that you cannot judge an AITA post from its title. Wowee.
