A video of a stepmom blowing out her stepdaughter’s birthday candles has gone viral and is angering people online. The video was originally posted to Twitter by a person named Mandy. It was uploaded with the caption: “Just went to my bday dinner and my...stepmom blew out my candles like ????? the reaction I had.?
… In the video, Mandy is smiling and chatting with her family and her stepmom to her side as the candles in their cake are lit. As they continue chatting, the candles can be seen getting blown out. This seems to immediately change the mood. Mandy’s face drops as she looks over to where her stepmom is and their whole family gets quiet. … While the video sparked a debate online, it also apparently caused a rift within Mandy’s family. Mandy posted a screenshot of a text message she received from her father. Mandy’s father appeared to send her a screengrab of her Instagram post about it and said that her stepmother has done nothing but be nice to her and bent over backward for her.
