The problem with the smallest white lie is that it can sometimes take on a life of its own, and grow larger and larger until it is out of control.

This is what happened to this woman. After lying about her peanut butter allergy to avoid being questioned about her dislike of peanut butter, she was faced with the reality of not being able to enjoy her beloved peanut M&M’s in public.

Some heroes don’t wear capes. Her husband saved the day by showing what true love is.

This wasn’t the end of the story. Many people were unhappy with her attitude towards faking allergies and commented on her post on Tumblr. When real sufferers of celiac disease are ridiculed because of the fad-following hordes, you can see their point. The death threats were taking it too far. We hope that this is the end of the story because Rue issued an apology.
