GIRL SAYS HER GOLDFISH DIED AND CAN’T ATTEND FAMILY EVENT, AUNT GOES BERSERK

This might sound funny but am I wrong for saying I couldn’t go to a family event because my goldfish died?

This story needs a bit of context first. This all happened around 5-6 years ago now, there was an event created through social media for a Christmas gathering with my family as we all knew this could possibly be our grandfathers last Christmas with us.

I (currently 27f) was a little immature at the time and made a post in the event saying ‘I’m sorry, I can’t come, my goldfish died’ which my immediate family and some extended family found hilarious. Somewhere between the time of the event being created and my post going up, my estranged Aunt had marked herself as not coming to the Christmas gathering.

A few hours after I had made the post, my mother received a phone call from said Aunt, abusing her for what her daughter had done, meanwhile the Aunt’s daughter had started posting nasty comments on the goldfish thread calling me (at the time I was around 20-21 years old) a fat pig, inconsiderate c***, worthless fat dog, amongst many other comments.

I had absolutely no idea why this was happening as I had made what I thought was a funny joke in a family event. The next day, my mother pulled me aside and asked if I could take down my post as there were certain family members offended by it. I went on the defence immediately and said that I had no idea what I had done wrong and why she made no comment on what her niece had been writing to me all night. It was then revealed that the reason my Aunt could not make it to the last Christmas with our grandfather was due to her dog was ill.

I took the post down straight away, I also issued an apology, however, I also made a comment that the dog was clearly more important than spending the last Christmas we had with our grandfather and said that would be something they would regret for the rest of their lives.

So in summary, am I wrong for making the post and then following it up with the final comments, even though I was not aware of what was happening in my estranged Aunt’s life?
