A mom in North Dakota was so upset by her 18-year-old daughter’s recent behavior that she sold the girl’s tickets to see Katy Perry in concert next month as punishment. Cindy Bjerke of Fargo posted a short ad on the Fargo Moorhead Online Garage Sale Facebook page in order to discipline her daughter. Bjerke didn’t name her daughter but described her in unflattering terms as a ‘spoiled brat’ who ‘doesn’t deserve these tickets
The tickets were for the Dark Horses hit maker’s upcoming show in Fargo on August 23. Even though the tickets are worth $110, Bjerke willing accepted $90 for them. She needn’t have worried about getting rid of the tickets as they sold in under five minutes and her ‘spoiled brat’ message received over 200 likes in just an hour.
Bjerke hasn’t said specifically what her daughter did, but the way she has chosen to discipline the girl has caused some controversy. The mom’s punishment has been criticized as harsh by some, who believe that the matter should have been handled privately rather than with a public shaming on Facebook.
