MParents are untouchable. They represent love, caring and sacrifice. The American Jennette McCurdy now seems to have hit a nerve by breaking a taboo: with joy at the death of her own mother.
There are reasons for the intensity of this emotion: McCurdy’s mother was a terrible person. “My mother was a narcissist. She didn’t want to admit problems to herself, no matter how destructive those problems were to our entire family.” What she ate, what roles she applied for, who she dated—everything was controlled by her mother. In addition to the emotional abuse, the former child star was also physically abused by her mother. She insisted on showering her until she was 17. Regularly felt her breasts and vagina and called it medical exams.
