Upon hearing that Octomom Nadya Suleman is going on welfare, it's safe to say that some members of the general public did not react sympathetically.
We're talking about death threats against her here.
The mother of 14 has been receiving intense backlash from strangers since it was revealed that she would be receiving aid from the state of California.
Suleman, 36, is eligible for state aid because she earns less than $115,000 a year ... the estimated poverty line for a family of 15. Cue angry mobs ...
The single Suleman has received a large volume of telephone calls, emails and Facebook messages in the last 72 hours, their tone largely the same.
“Die b!tch. I’m not working for your f*%king kids, you’re the one that wanted them,” one blunt Facebook message directed at Octomom read.
She says she decided to seek help because she was “becoming totally destitute.” Not even an Octomom nude photo spread could pay the bills.
“I have to do what I have to do to take care of my family,” she said of her decision to bare all in order to make rent, “and I’m not ashamed.”
She will receive $2,000 a month from the state, to be used solely on food, and hopes to only rely on the assistance for a few months at most.
Sounds like wishful thinking, but here's hoping, Octo.
