Apparently that is her emotionally scarring backstory.

We know those Dalmatians were chasing after young Cruella, but, seriously, they did not even pause before going after her mom.

Give someone that A grade
The Dalmatian thing was definitely weird, but whoever was in charge of costume? They understood the assignment.

Sure, why not
Look at the non-murdering good boy. This one is only a pickpocket.
Critics and audiences both agree "my mom got murdered by dogs so I shall become a fashion desgner" is a good origin story#Cruella pic.twitter.com/6ZVbpfFvDE

The costumes and the soundtrack were also part of it
Hey, if you’re gonna have an origin story might as well go big on the dead mom angle. Or something.

She just stood there!!
But, really, she could have dodged.
idk Cruella if dalamations killed my mom I think I'd just be sad about it instead of wanting to make a coat out of constant dead mom reminders #Cruella

We still don’t know where the plot of 101 Dalmatians happens after the film
You do you or something, Cruella de Vil.
I like how the trending tab for #Cruella is 50% “omg girlboss slay queen” and 50% “Dalmatians killed her mom”

The internet’s take
You have to be a singularly interesting movie to provoke that sort of reaction in people.
