Mom punishes daughter by selling Katy Perry tickets online

Mom Punishes Daughter By Selling Katy Perry Tickets Online

This may be the first time Katy Perry has been used for punishment. A North Dakota mom sold her teen daughter's tickets to see the singer after some bad behavior.



WDAY reports: She posted a short ad to the Fargo/Moorhead Online Garage Sale Facebook page that had a header that said "spoiled brat daughter doesn't deserve these tickets, for sale."

The mom, Cindy, hasn't said specifically what her daughter did, but the way she sold those tickets has caused some controversy.

HLN reports that some people are criticizing her for being too harsh and say that it should have been handled privately. The mom did not name her 18-year-old daughter.

Although, it wasn't exactly public. The Facebook page where the ticket sale was posted is a closed group -- you have to ask permission to join it. The post wouldn't have been visible except to the members of the group. Granted, there are 17,000 of them.

People seem torn on the whole public shaming thing. Moms publicly reprimanding their children have made headlines in the past, in incidents reported by WDJT, KERO, and New York Daily News. Each one was met with its fair share of criticism.

As for the latest incident of public shaming via Katy Perry, the administrator to the Facebook page reportedly deleted the post after it had received a couple hundred likes and the tickets were sold.

Yea, now that she's made the news, Katy Perry will personally invite this girl to a concert. The mother should NOT be allowed to come!!

If Katy Perry invites this girl, she is going to have a lot of parents who agree with this Mother boycott her from now own. She need to stay out of it.

I don't even like kids and I think it is kind of childish behavior by the mother and borderline abusive......not taking the tickets away but the public humiliation aspect. There is just something wrong with that.

abusive? how? just because she sold the tickets? those tickets cost money. why let them go to waste? what person wouldn't sell them? do everyone a favor and do not have any kids. it is obvious they would become monsters if you did.

Gee, sucks to be that teen. Perhaps when you learn proper respect and behavior, you can enjoy things like tickets to concerts.

What does it matter; she did not name her daughter who is 18. Please get a life people, jail is very public, teen pregnancy very public, stupid people very public, good parenting and discipline very private.

She posted it on Facebook for 17,000 of her closest friends to see. That is hardly private and I am pretty confident that her Facebook friends and family know her name.
If you think that is good parenting, please get your tubes tied today.

Hopefully that lesson is not to humiliate any children she has in her life.

Grow up, Petey, grow up.
Allowing your child to do whatever they please with no consequences is bad behavior and one day when you grow up and have children of your own, you'll realize that.

how did she humiliate her? all she did was say she did not deserve them and sold them. there was NO MENTION of WHAT SHE DID. so how is that childish behaviour? best way to teach the kid a lesson.

I agree, punish your daughter by selling the tickets, and that should be kept private between the two of you.
