4-Yr-Old Won’t Wish Grandpa “Happy Father’s Day,” Has Steve Harvey In Stitches With Sassy Explanation!

Little Hadley Brewer is very much a literalist and will probably grow up to be a lawyer… if not a comedian!

The Collinwood, Tennessee youngster rose to Internet stardom last year, when her mom posted a video of her little girl’s rationale behind her refusal to wish her grandfather a happy Father’s Day. She makes it abundantly clear that since he’s her “Paw Paw,”not her “Daddy,”he is not worthy of the customary salutation. At least, not from her.


Hadley’s stern lecture made it onto YouTube, where it went viral and led to her appearance on the Season 2 finale of “Little Big Shots.â€

“On Father’s Day, that’s a special day for your father … I say ‘Happy Father’s Day’ to my dad to represent him and you don’t want to represent your daddy. That’s being ugly to your daddy,”she says, rather emphatically, in the 2015 video.


Her mother points out that she is going to wish her daddy a happy Father’s Day, but that’s not enough to mollify or convince young Hadley.

“No! That’s weird … I ain’t going to because that’s not my father. That’s my Paw Paw.â€


And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the end of that discussion.

Watch the video below to hear her hilarious explanation to Steve Harvey, and share to spread smiles!
