Yeah, that's REALLY messed up. Oddly enough, I had a friend who's mom died by crashing into a tree at night when he was 11, though he didn't very much like her. It's as if he was glad she died.

Yes males are involved in more accidents but males do drive more and when you put them in comparison women are more at risk to be in an accident behind the wheel. Pretty much anything you google that explains why they say what they do will say men are involved in more accidents but its explained that women are more at risk. I can provide proof but nobody will believe anything that's on the internet if it goes against what they say claiming they cant validate that source or something.

A lot of people make jokes in poor taste as a coping mechanism. Maybe the information made the OP's bf emotional/sad/uncomfortable etc. Societally speaking men aren't taught how to deal with emotions. We have to be "strong". For example when we were carrying my grandmother's casket, my cousin tripped and almost dropped his part. I just started laughing. Obviously not the right response, but in that moment it was all I could do. It might seem insensitive, but maybe the boyfriend isn't sure how to appropriately process the information. She should just talk to him. If he doesn't see what he did wrong, then yes maybe.

Yes, why dump someone when they make an insensitive comment about op's mother being a bad driver and it caused her death. Op lost her mother, do you realize how hard that must be? Some douche adding to the pain, awkward accident or not, should be dumped.

Sure he might have a sick sense of humor and this was an attempt at a joke, but it doesn't really excuse it. He's been on this planet long enough to know what's insensitive and this was very much so. FYL OP. I can only assume from your username that you are single so if you are, good on you for ending it with him, everyone has their boundaries.
