21 Savage Parents Who Expertly Trolled Their Kids On Social Media
You know the one thing that consistently ruins every single day? The "Memories" feature on my Facebook account that repeatedly reminds me of what a 'Like'-seeking, unfunny, cringe-worthy teenager I was. Being reminded of this on a daily basis really makes me wish my parents were on Facebook, just so that they could step in and tell me to get a life and grow up.
But when you're a teenager, the very idea of your parents being on social media is enough to make you want to lock yourself in your room and scroll through adoption agencies in the hope of finding a new mom and dad.
But in hindsight, the following 21 parents were only looking out for their offspring - even if that meant savagely trolling them in front of their entire friend list in the process.
1. Telling it like it is
When mom and dad team up for a trolling, you know you're not going to come out of it looking good!
2. Stay classy, dad!
I agree, James, I think Justin's dad has just won the internet...
3. I'm sorry, Miss Jackson...
Savage! Seriously, with a mom this witty, he should have a much better sense of humor...
4. A deflating exhange
It often feels like our parents had us simply because they ran out of people to mock...
5. He kinda deserved it...
If you're going to try look like a thug, don't leave your childhood teddy bear in the background!
6. What a boob
You definitely deserved this one, Michael!
7. Who did it better?
These parents relentless mock their daughter's pictures with her boyfriend. And let's be honest, they do it so much better!
8. She won't be able to 'Shake It Off'
Parents are always one step ahead of their kids!
9. If at first you don't succeed...
It's never fun being the oldest sibling, especially when your parents literally come out and say it...
10. Slide it into my DMs!
Imagine trying to go into school the day after your dad posts something like this!
11. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!
Mom could have taken the higher ground here and sided with her son... but she didn't.
12. Leave the memories alone
What a nice way to spoil a beloved childhood memory and learn than you ate cat food, all in one post!
13. Parenting 101
I have to agree - this is exceptional! If your kids misbehave, take away the two things they care about the most: their Facebook account and their reputation!
14. Queen of Banter
All hail Debra! I think Tim will think twice before making such a lame joke.
15. Dad has a point
You can only learn so much staring at the ceiling.
16. Oh Derek...
Statuses like this are never cool... I'm so glad his mom was around to make sure he got to bed safe and sound.
It really does serve him right for seeking the attention.
18. To put it bluntly...
"I'll break you down just as fast as I built you up" - his dad really does have a point.
19. Like father, like daughter
This dad has made a name for himself mimicking his daughter's selfies. In fact, he now has more followers than her!
20. Much appreciated, mom
I'm sure this was the last thing Ellie needed to see after being single for SOOOOOOO long.
21. Mom 1 - 0 Son
It's never good when your mom's trolling gets more likes than your original post...
So there you have it, 21 parents who know how to shut down their kids on Facebook. Being honest, I really could have done with some of this wisdom in my teenage years.
