Bride sparks outrage after "firing" eight-year-old flower girl

A bride has taken to Reddit to ask for advice on firing her eight-year-old flower girl for bullying.
The anonymous bride enlisted the help of the "Am I the A******" forum to ask if she was wrong to fire her niece - and the feedback was a resounding "yes."
On the forum, she explained her reasoning for wanting to fire the child - explaining that she originally chose her because she was "cuter" than her other, less attractive niece, Katie.
"Unfortunately for my perfect day I felt shallow and since Amber has more of a typical angelic 'cute' appearance (very long hair, glasses, big smile) I picked her. Her parents also convinced me she deserved it because she got top marks in some assessment her school did," she wrote on Reddit.
According to the bride, Amber then proceeded to "bully" Katie about not being chosen.
"Amber (and keep in mind this is an eight-year-old child) told Katie that she'd never get married because she's too ugly. I could imagine how upsetting this would be for a child and I made Amber apologise and also took away the flower girl job and gave it to Katie," she explained.
The eight-year-old understandably didn't take the news well and cried for the entire wedding.
