Just Look At This Asshole: Auntie Jen Sues 8-Year-Old Nephew Over Enthusiastic Hug

Too often, men take all the asshole credit, when assholes come in all shapes, sizes and genders. Jennifer Connell, aka Auntie Jen, is an important reminder that entitled white women can be the worst of them. Her four-year pursuit of a six-figure payday over a loving hug from her nephew makes her the reigning king and queen of the assholes.

The incident in question took place back on March 18, 2011, at her nephew Sean Tarala’s 8th birthday party. Tarala was so excited to see his “Auntie Jen,” as he calls her, when she arrived, that he tackled her with a hug and yelled, “I love you.” Now that she’s seeking $127,000 in damages for this “unreasonably forceful” affection, he’s unlikely to greet her that way ever again.

Though she did not reveal the extent of her injuries the day of the party, Auntie Jen claims Sean’s hug broke her wrist. While sustaining this kind of injury may seem minor to many of us, it has significantly impacted her asshole lifestyle. In court, Connell even testified that, at a recent party, “it was difficult to hold my hors d’oeuvre plate.” Someone pass me my tiny violin.

Tarala, now 12 years old, has been through a lot since that birthday party. Most notably, his mother passed away last year. Most of us would think this kid has been through enough, but then again, most of us are not Auntie Jen. That’s the good news.
