An up-and-coming chef blew up Reddit when he exposed his sister-in-law’s racist remarks to the world. It set off a chain reaction in the family that might never stop. Here is the full story.
They Cooked Up Happiness
OP is an Asian man who has been married to his Caucasian wife for 10 years.
Not Everyone Liked Him
During that time, OP has gotten along well with most of his wife’s family. But he always felt like his father-in-law and one of his sisters-in-law didn’t really like him.
She Is Very Talented
Part of the issue was a bit of professional rivalry, as both OP and his sister-in-law are accomplished chefs. In fact, he admits that she is amazing at her job.
He’s on the Fast Track
But OP is pretty amazing, too, and works at a high-end Chinese restaurant. He has won several awards and is on track to become the executive chef.
She Attacks Him at Every Turn
Whenever OP and his sister-in-law end up in the kitchen together at family gatherings, though, she constantly criticizes his cooking.
She Has All the Answers
The sister-in-law works at an upscale French restaurant and has a very high opinion of her own skills. So she’s always offering little “helpful hints” to OP about his cooking.
He’s a Master of Deflection
OP wants to keep the peace in the family, so he just tries to deflect the comments. Usually, he’ll thank his sister-in-law for the advice, then continue on his merry way.
It Was a Mad Rush
Recently, though, OP and his wife were at his in-laws’ house making dinner for his mother-in-law’s birthday. They got behind schedule, so everything was sort of rushed.
She Pounced on Him
Right in the middle of his prep, OP’s sister-in-law walked in and had a cow. She said he was doing everything wrong.
He Was as Good as Her
That was the last straw for OP, and he told his sister-in-law to stop criticizing his cooking. He was a trained chef just like her, and he deserved some respect.
She Blew It All Up
That’s when OP’s sister-in-law dropped the bomb that decimated her family.
His Work Didn’t Count
She looked right at OP and said that “making Kung Pao chicken at some Chinese restaurant doesn’t count” as being a chef.
Mom Was Shocked
OP’s mother-in-law was horrified and yelled at her daughter right away.
She Was a Racist
OP himself blew up and called his sister-in-law “racist” before storming out and heading home with his wife.
She Was Torn
When they got home, OP explained to his wife in more detail what had happened. She felt terrible about what her sister did, but wanted her husband to apologize for walking out.
It Wasn’t His Problem
But OP refused to apologize when it was his wife’s racist sister who caused all the trouble in the first place.
They Completely Disintegrated
In the weeks that followed, the entire family broke into so many different fights that OP couldn’t even count them all.
She Couldn’t Keep Her Mouth Shut
OP’s sister-in-law also couldn’t keep her mouth shut about the incident and was ranting about the whole thing at work. One of her colleagues reported her to management.
She Told the Whole World
Eventually, one of OP’s wife’s cousins found his original Reddit post and shared it on Facebook, calling out the sister-in-law.
She Walked Out on Him
From there, the fighting spilled over to OP’s in-laws, who had apparently been having trouble for years. When the father-in-law took his daughter’s side, the mother-in-law walked out on him.
They Knew the Truth
Some family and friends tried to rally around OP’s sister-in-law by having them call his restaurant to get him fired. But his management saw through the whole thing and was offended by the woman’s racism.
She Might Not Work Again
In the end, OP’s sister-in-law got demoted and was eventually forced to quit her job. He also hears she has effectively been blacklisted from the entire restaurant industry in their city.
He Feels Bad for Her
Now, OP feels bad that the family is suffering so much, and he even feels bad for his sister-in-law.
He Wants to Help Her
OP never intended for any of this to happen, and he is working with friends in other cities to see if he can find an opening for his sister-in-law. Redditors were pretty much blown away by OP’s story of racism and family strife.
Many say the sister-in-law and father-in-law got some small taste of what they deserve, but they also think the family won’t ever be the same and may never recover.
