Gay Kid Gets Revenge On Homophobic Mom By Blasting Her “Super-Secret” Meatloaf Recipe Online

If you heard the phrase “revenge meatloaf,” you’d probably assume it has a laxative in it, or something else horrible. You’d avoid it with a ten-foot pole. But there’s a recipe for a revenge loaf that has gone viral for being delicious, and for screwing over a homophobic parent.

It first became widely known after a screenshot was posted to Reddit in r/tumblr, but the original poster on Tumblr wrote, “When I was little my mom’s meatloaf was my favorite food. But ONLY her meatloaf. I didn’t like anyone else’s, and she told me she would teach me how to make it when I was older.

“And when I was like 19? She finally taught me, but she told me never to tell anyone else and I was like weird but okay. Anyway, she was super f**king homophobic and abusive to me when I told her I was gay so here’s the recipe.”

And that’s why it’s a revenge loaf.

The tweet went viral, partly because folks love the idea of screwing a homophobic mom out of her secret recipe, partly because folks like debating how a meatloaf should be made:

Be good to your kids, they know exactly how to hurt you.
