  • A Reddit user posted to the subreddit /AmItheAssh*le on April 26 explaining that her Asian mother-in-law and husband found it “disrespectful” that she had served them mac and cheese for dinner four weeks after she had given birth.
  • According to the user’s post, her husband’s family had shown up without notice, and her husband requested that she make anything “homemade.”
  • When the user made mac and cheese, her mother-in-law looked “appalled” and ranted that she had “no experience in what is right and wrong when it comes to hosting.”
  • The user also said her husband had agreed with the mother-in-law and refused to eat the dinner, stating that she was being disrespectful to his family’s culture.
  • Many Reddit users reassured the new mother that what her husband’s family had done was not representative of Asian culture and that they “are just AHs [assh*les].”
