I usually post under another name, but had to go incognito with this one.
I posted a cute pic of FH and our pup, with a framed pic of FH’s son on a table in the background. A friend commented: “Ahh, cool! You got a pic of the kid, the fiance, and the dog all in the same picture”.
FSIL then picks a fight with him in the comments! She posted “THE KIDS NAME IS ****”
He made a joke — yeah, and the fiance’s name is **** and I don’t know the dog’s name.
She strikes again — “WELL NO SH*T”.
Then she starts texting me — Who is your friend ____? What is his deal? Is he your relative? So on and so forth.
I didn’t respond because I don’t think straight when I’m angry.
So she then emails me this crazy email:
“Whoever ________ is, it is NOT ok for him to refer to my nephew like a dog. Perhaps he has this cool bitter sarcasm about him that people overlook and tolerate and that’s its own story but displaying what can be taken as degrading about a child on public forum is UNacceptable and pathetic. Whoever he is I feel sorry for whomever has to pout up with him. Leave me blocked from your pics because I don’t want to see what he says next. He’s a jerk. And YOU’RE a jerk for letting him do it!!!!!!”
Ummm…. what do I do? I do not participate in drama. She is over the line and out of control! My FH just laughed it off saying she’s emotional and dramatic, but that doesn’t solve the problem. Help!

I would respond back, because she will just ge tmore upset if you ignore her. I would just let her know that for privacy reasons he didn’t put the name and meant no offense.
I would then drop it and I would also block your photos from her as she asked. No need for drama caused by facebook.

I don’t even know how to respond to her. What should I do?!?!

I would respond simply saying that the friend didn’t mention anyone’s name and the friend didn’t feel it was appropriate to put a child’s name out on the internet where any creepizoid could see it. And I would tell her you do not appreciate her bitting your head off because of something so petty.
good luck…..crazies are annoying!

Wow, she took it personally much?! I wouldn’t let her comment on photos anymore, if there is such a way to do it.

wow. a little crazy there huh? i agree with stlginkgo… respond to her telling her its not a good idea to put a childs name out there with his picture, and you dont appreciate her compromising the safty of FI’s son by going ahead and doing that. then delete her comment.

I wouldn’t get involved. Just ignore the email and if she brings it up stay completely diplomatic. If it gets too much more out of hand let your SO know how it’s making you feel and maybe he can calm her down a bit.

I’m having him deal with her. I sent her a short email stating that I’d like to continue for my Facebook to be a place for friends and family to enjoy pictures of our family, and that drama and childish remarks and fighting in the comments will not be tolerated. So yeah, I told her how I really feel.

Wow, a tad bit crazy, no?
@missbunnyrabbit: Good for you- hopefully she realizes what a silly thing it was to totally flip out over.
