FARGO, North Dakota – A North Dakota teenager is learning a hard lesson after her mother sold her Katy Perry tickets through a Facebook garage sale group as punishment.
WDAZ reports that Cindy Bjerke said because her 18-year-old daughter had ‘disrespectful behavior’, she will have to miss out on seeing the pop star.
According to WDAZ, She posted a short ad to the Fargo-Moorhead Online Garage Sale Facebook page.
“I had a header that said, ‘spoiled brat daughter doesn’t deserve these tickets… For sale.’ and within 5 minutes they were sold, within an hour there were 200 likes and it just kind of spiraled from there,” said Bjerke.
Some parents say it’s a personal issue that should have been handled privately and that it’s humiliating to the child.
While some parents may think the tactic was a little too extreme, Bjerke says she had plenty of supportive posts before the site’s administrator removed it.
She says she never wanted to embarrass her daughter…she was simply taking what she saw as appropriate action.
