Advice Columnist to Reader: 'You Are a Horrible Person' Published: May 15, 2014

A woman who wrote syndicated advice columnist Amy Dickinson of “Ask Amy,” seeking advice for a problem she was having with her sister, received a brutally honest response when Dickinson called the letter writer a “horrible person," according to Yahoo Shine.

“I’ve been pretty amazed by the public’s reaction to this letter,” Dickinson, who replaced Ann Landers at The Chicago Tribune in 2003, tells Yahoo Shine. “And I’m excited that it’s generated conversation about how bullying is a problem, even among siblings.”

The woman, who signed her letter “Sad Sister” wrote to Dickinson explaining that she excluded her sister, “Wendy,” from family functions and didn’t understand why her sister would be offended by the slight.
