About Your Shitty Family

An Instagram feed devoted to “unspirational” screengrabs of cringe-worthy texts between family members, @yourshittyfamily gives a peek into the awkwardness of family life in the 21st century. You know, like when your mom texts you to ask, “What does MILF stand for,” or you accidentally send your dad details about your sex life. Pushing 1 million followers (and now accepting submissions on yourshittyfamily.com for a forthcoming book), @yourshittyfamily revels in the #lols from other people’s textual mishaps. Sometimes shocking, sometimes uplifting, and always funny, Your Shitty Family proves that mistakes can happen to anyone, so text carefully.

Your Shitty Family's best work on social
