From forcing bridesmaids to wear contact lenses, to requesting plastic surgery or hair makeovers, we’ve heard our fair share of bridezilla stories.

But this one might just be the most absurd one we’ve heard yet.

A woman has taken to a popular wedding shaming group on Facebook to share her friend’s ridiculous reaction, after she fell pregnant one year before the wedding.

“I was always told I couldn’t have kids and so obviously my daughter not planned but I was over the moon,” she wrote.

“So I told [bride], expecting excitement, right? Nope.”

The bridesmaid was told she would be “so stressed” trying to get a dress fitting on her own, and reminded that the wedding was “kid free”.

“Then after thoroughly explaining how difficult her wedding would be for me, she said (verbatim) ‘so don’t you think it might be better for you to have an abortion?'”

People were understandable shocked and outraged at the tale, calling out the bride for being “pure evil”.

“To ask someone to have an abortion in order to make sure her wedding goes smoothly is like really disturbing,” one person commented on the post that has garnered thousands of reactions.

“How dare your life continue while I plan my wedding!!?!?!? Unbelievable! Some people,” was another comment.

The story has since been shared across the internet with more and more people condemning the bride’s heartless reaction.

“If this is true the bride was never that woman’s friend and I hope the bridesmaid turned her back and walked away from that toxic relationship,” one person said.

“Unbelievably appalling… seriously, these people are not worthy of her friendship and are totally self-centred. I hope she is enjoying being a mum with a whole set of new friends who know the meaning of that word,” another wrote.
