Bride demotes her cousin from maid of honor because she’s ‘fat’

A Louisiana woman has revealed the cruel text messages she received from her soon-to-be-married cousin who demoted her from maid of honor because she is ‘fat’ and not disciplined enough ‘to go on a diet.’

Lia, 27, who is known as @liainlouisiana on TikTok, shared a video of herself eating Chick-fil-A in front of their text exchange, which was blown up in the background using the platform’s green-screen effect. 

The conversation appeared to pick up after Lia’s cousin Alejandra called her out about her weight, with the bride-to-be saying: ‘You know this bridesmaid group is not a therapy session.’

‘Are you embarrassed? Lia asked.  

‘Of what [?] Of telling you to go on a diet [?] No,’ Alejandra replied. ‘It’s my wedding.’  

The bride didn’t see anything wrong with her behavior, even after Lia called her out for demoting her because of her weight, which she didn’t deny. 

‘Alejandra, you demoted me from maid of honor because I’m fat,’ Lia said. 

‘Yes. Because you don’t have any control over yourself to go on a diet,’ Alejandra hit back. ‘I like people with discipline. You are still a bridesmaid. I’m going to sleep goodnight.’

Lia ended the conversation by wishing her cousin a good night and telling her that she loved her, which stunned many viewers.

After commenters begged her to ‘respect’ herself and refuse to be a part of the wedding, she opened up about her complicated relationship with Alejandra.

‘She’s like my sister,’ Lia responded to one TikToker. ‘I’d regret not doing it even when she’s like this.’  

She claimed that Alejandra has her own issues with food, saying she ‘barely eats.’ 

Lia, who previously shared on TikTok that she had an eating disorder and used to starve herself, believes her cousin ‘projects her ED on others,’ herself included.  

‘She’s not going to change so ignore the fat-shaming [and] accept her as she is,’ she added. 

In a follow-up video, Lia shared another exchange with Alejandra in which the bride told her to ‘be decent’ and not wear ‘whore shoes.’ 

More drama: Lia later explained in a follow-up that her cousin uninvited her to the wedding over the video, which has been viewed more than 100,000 times

When she asked what she meant by ‘whore shoes,’ her cousin said anything with glitter or a platform was off-limits. 

Lia later announced that she will no longer be serving as a bridesmaid in Alejandra’s wedding because the bride uninvited her after her first video received more than 100,000 views. 

‘I am not going to the wedding. I have cried all afternoon,’ she said in the clip. ‘I am uninvited, so I’m not going. I’m returning my bridesmaid dress on Monday, and that’s that.’

Lia added that this was the first step in ‘respecting’ herself, saying: ‘I’m trying. I’m doing my best.’ 

Commenters assured her that she was better off, saying her relationship with her cousin is ‘toxic’ and she doesn’t deserve to be treated that way.

‘It may hurt in the moment but you are better off without her,’ one person wrote. ‘You can’t “accept” this kind of behavior.’ 

‘I’m sorry you’re sad, but just remember being family doesn’t give someone the right to be an awful human being to you,’ another added. ‘You deserve respect.’

‘You did NOTHING wrong!’ someone else insisted. ‘You deserve to be treated with respect and that was a toxic situation.’

In Lia’s most recent video, she showed off her navy blue scrubs at work, saying she is going to be a ‘fatfluencer’ until her cousin starts talking to her again and stops shaming her about her weight.  

‘The “fatfluencer” part is a joke,’ she wrote in the caption. ‘I am upset and blocked my cousin’s number. 

‘I wish she understood my struggles with food and my body. My BMI says I’m obese. I’ve struggled with this all my life.’
