stardustintheeyes :  Coming from a Hispanic family, I feel you since I know exactly how they can overreact to things that happen. First, if you are over 18, I would tell your mom to advise your aunt of your phone number and if they have a problem with what you said, they can confront you themselves, but they need to stop bothering your poor mother over something she is not responsible for. 

If they call (or if you choose to call them), I would say that you are sorry if she felt embarrassed by you calling her out, but you feel you are still right in your opinion and you feel you did the right thing by telling her that she should take it down. Tell her that she needs to understand that posting things like that on facebook are going to get reactions and she may get some that are not what she is hoping for, that is the gamble she is taking. Eventually, this will blow over, but I wouldn’t apologize for doing the right thing. The method may have been questionable for them, but she also made the embarrassment for that girl public, so she should not be surprise that the response was not in private.

Good for you. Hopefully she will think twice next time before trying to shame someone publically.
