    Uhm I’m sorry. You clearly don’t know Junia at all. You don’t know our family. You shouldn’t comment on things when you’re lacking information because you turn out to look extremely foolish. For a woman of your age, minding your own business should’ve been something you MASTERED by now. Assaulting your PREGNANT 8 month pregnant child is UNACCEPTABLE. By the look of your comment, I now see why you’re friends with her… because I’m your world assaulting pregnant women is okay lol. Please get a life.

    It’s funny how you think because you “think” you know her that you “know” her family. Leave these people alone during their time of grief. You know nothing dumb bitch
