-- A moviegoer who got an apology over social media from a mom who said she was mortified by her children's "rude and obnoxious" behavior at the movies wrote in her own Facebook message that the apology "brought me to tears and shows there [are] still good people in the world."
Kyesha Smith Wood, of Birmingham, Alabama, dropped off her son, daughter and step-daughter at the movies, she said in a Facebook post early Saturday morning. The son is a teenager and the two girls are 13, according to ABC's Birmingham affiliate, ABC 33/40.
"My son later told me, much to my humiliation and embarrassment, that my girls were rude and obnoxious during the movie. The woman I'm looking for addressed them and asked them to be quiet and they were disrespectful," Wood wrote on Facebook. "After the movie she approached my girls and told them that her husband had been laid off and this was the last movie she would be able to take her daughter to for a while and my girls ruined that for her."
Wood's post asked for the woman to contact her.
"This rude, disrespectful, and awful behavior is unacceptable and they owe you an apology," Wood wrote.
