(Picture: Getty)A woman has taken to Mumsnet to ask how mad she should be about the fact her sister didn’t want her at her BBQ because she was too ‘fat’.
The woman explained that her sister had set up a group chat with her, her siblings and parents about a big BBQ she was having, and wanted to find a date they could all do before finalising the plans.
However, despite there being a range of dates they could all do, her sister chose the one date that the woman couldn’t do.
The reason why? She didn’t want her guests knowing that she had a ‘fat sister’.
She wrote: ‘I pointed out there were a lot of dates we could all do and she came back and said she wasn’t sure I’d feel comfortable at the event as she was also inviting a lot of her clients, I phoned her to ask what this was supposed to mean.
‘Sister is a personal trainer, I am overweight (size 16).
‘Cut a long story short she started by saying everyone going was really slim and cared about their weight (my anger rose to about 5/10 here), then she proceeded to suggest it looked bad on her as a personal trainer if she had a “fat” sister.

Unsurprisingly, people came to the defense of the woman writing, explaining how it was an awful thing for her sister to say and totally not fair at all.
One woman said: ‘I would tell her she is hurtful cruel and rude and it’s nice to know her image means more to her than her relationship with her sister. What a b****.’
Someone else said: ‘You say nothing. She needs to apologise. Vile attitude. Hopefully one of your family will deal with her nastiness.’
One commenter said that she should host an event and not invite her sister to get her own back, while another woman wrote: ‘Can you rearrange your thing on that date? I would show up unannounced and act up stuff sausages in your mouth and drink champagne out of the bottle that kind of thing she’s a class A d*ck!’
Obviously, what the woman’s sister said was incredibly hurtful, and nobody should have to put up with that.
We hope the pair sort it out – and at the very least that the sister apologises.
What do you think? Should the woman confront her sister or leave it? Let us know in the comments below.
