Kids can be cruel to each other and will pick on anything about another one.
Ears that seem large as a child are not so noticeable once the head gets bigger. I knew a girl who ad surgery to pin back hers.
The scene with the mother would be horrifying to anyone but that’s on her. Although not funny, it was like a skit on Saturday Night Live.
