AITA for getting upset at my bf for putting things i dont like in my breakfast?

English isn't my first language so sorry in advance,,


hi, so a little bit of context:

I (20M) go to a culinary arts university in America and stay with my bf L(21M). He is American and an atheist while i'm born and raised a Turkish Muslim. Since we both go to cooking school, we change the cooking chore daily without a problem. Also last bit, i'm a rather progressive person and i cut ties with my uber-religious dad and J knows this.


So onto the story, it was J's turn to cook and he told me he would make breakfast for the weekend. So Saturday morning (which was my birthday) he comes to my room with some food and blindfolds me saying there is a surprise. Then he says he made something on the table and we walk there. I take a bite and it was pork. From a pig ofc. so i was of course incredibly aggravated. I took the blindfold immediately and asked why he did this. He was in hysterics and thought this was SOO funny. I told him it was disrespectful and he shouldn't disrespect my religion. He scoffed off saying i was overreacting and that i wasn't that religious anyway so he thought it wouldn't be an issue.


I'm currently thinking of moving to a new room/house but my brother who i vented to is saying that's too much of an overreaction so AITA for maybe reacting too much?
