How to Respond to a Girl Calling You Spoiled

When a girlfriend, sister, or female friend calls you spoiled, avoid getting defensive. Respond lightly at first to see if they’re just teasing. If not, firmly tell them why their opinion is wrong or hurtful.

Try these tactics:

If Said Jokingly:

  • Giggle and say something like “What can I say, I just bat my lashes and get what I want!”
  • Wink and reply “Maybe if you were less salty, someone would spoil you too.”
  • Just own it! Say “True, your girl is living the princess life over here!”

If Meant Negatively:

  • Calmly explain why their comment is hurtful or untrue
  • Politely tell them you won’t discuss this further
  • Walk away if they continue their rude behavior

If Said by Family Members:

  • Clarify whether gifts they’ve given now make you “spoiled”
  • Remind them it’s their own generosity making you “spoiled”
  • Blame any spoiled tendencies on how you were raised!

When Unsure, Deflect With Humor:

  • Say “I’m not spoiled, I’m just thoroughbred!”
  • Joke “I know right, it’s soooo hard getting daily massages.”
  • Wink and reply “The struggle is real over here with my catered meals.”

For nasty comments said just to hurt you, feel free to throw some shade back. But with friends or family, give them the benefit of the doubt first before reacting.

Kill them with kindness. Or kill them with comedy. But reacting angrily or rudely yourself rarely helps the situation.


How to Respond to a Guy Calling You Spoiled

Now let’s talk about handling spoiled accusations when they come from guys…

Whether it’s your brother, boyfriend, a male friend or coworker, a guy calling you spoiled often carries undertones of sexism.

Respond carefully using these methods:

If Said Teasingly By Your S.O:

  • Coyly ask if he wants to spoil you even more
  • Flirt back about being his princess
  • But set boundaries if it ever bothers you

If Meant Negatively By a Guy:

  • Poltely explain why this is a sexist statement
  • Calmly defend yourself and your work ethic
  • Walk away if he refuses to listen

When Unsure If He’s Joking:

  • Laugh it off with a funny spoiled comeback
  • Redirect the convo in a positive way
  • Assess his intentions before reacting

If Said By Male Friends or Family:

  • Clarify if his gifts or generosity made you “spoiled”
  • Accuse him back of spoiling you
  • Offer to return his gifts if he has an issue!

Remember – men often weaponize the word “spoiled” against successful women to cut them down. Don’t allow this sexist language from anyone. Stand up for yourself while keeping your cool.

Kill rotten behavior with confidence, class, and a splash of sass when needed!


In conclusion, being called spoiled is never fun. But reacting without grace gives haters what they want. Rise above by arming yourself with perfect responses to shut down the accusations while keeping your head high!

Hopefully these ideas help the next time someone tries calling you a spoiled princess. Brush off the salt and slay their bad attitude with some honey!
