for Going on Welfare

4/1/2012 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Octomom's decision to go on welfare is pissing off people so much ... she's getting a flood of nasty messages and even death threats.

Hours after TMZ broke the story yesterday, our sources say Nadya Suleman started getting angry and threatening phone calls from blocked numbers, emails, and Facebook messages such as ... "Die bitch. I’m not working for your f**king kids, you’re the one that wanted them."

We're told Octo had to hang up on several irate callers, but not before they spewed choice words like:

-- "You're going to get yours."
-- "I'm not working to f**king pay --."
-- "F**k you, you don't deserve --."

According to our sources, Octomom's actually received a few positive messages too -- single mothers praising her for not letting pride stop her from doing what they believe is right for her children.

Despite the threats, we're told Octo has not called the cops ... yet.

I support her 100% and I think that maybe some of those Right to Life groups should even step forward and help her out the way they are supposed to provide help and support for unwed mothers. I think she does need some caring and Christian people in her life instead of the type who want to help to bring fame to themselves or put her down as a loser with mental problems.

People who make death threats anonymously over the phone and emails and facebook are what you call prank callers. They have no ability to do anything other than get reactions from people and make themselvs feel powerful over a helpless woman and her children. I doubt anyone would kill her for taking foodstamps, that is just crazy. If they were so concerned about the budget, why aren't they threatening the foodstamps office or the legislators? They know those people don't have time for this nonsense, so they pick on her instead because she seems to be so vulnberable. They are just like vultures looking to pick apart the emotionally weak.

She can get caller ID for 10 dollars per month and an answering machine or fax machine with number announce and then if it is an unkown caller, she can let the machine answer it and erase it as soon as it sounds nasty and hit call trace on it to send a report to the police automatically.

These people sound like trolls, prank callers, etc. I don't think they would really do something like killing someone, they just want to make her nervous I guess or think it is fun to find someone to harrass.

This is a perfect example where the Pro Life fanatics should step in immediately to help this woman. It would be a great propaganda machine for them to show they are willing to help support a clearly mentally disturbed woman who opted to keep all 8 fetuses that were implanted in her body. It is not the childrens fault that their mom is mentally unstable. Pro Life protestors have a perfect opportunity to feed and clothe these poor kids.

two cents    

gee, TMZ, what did you think was going to happen when you ran that story yesterday?? And the poll?? Mind you, I don't give a flip about this human clown car. She made her bed, let her lie in it but TMZ's hands are far from clean in this mess.

Just a thought    

If this is true, and not an April fools prank... TMZ what responsibility do you have? I'm sure if one of you needed social assistance you wouldn't want it broadcasted. Think of her kids,think of how they are feeling, why their peers are going to say. Many, MANY people in today's economy are being forced to ask for help, or loose their house. The reality is that this happens way too often whether you have one or fourteen kids. We would not publicly ridicule someone with a mental illness, which Natalie might have. Its not like she did this procedure on her own.

The kids should be taken away they will never have a healthy home life and that bitch should be sterilized and NOT given any welfare. Everyone is working so this pig can stay home and spread her legs!

People are so rude to others who take foodstamps or assistance and what does it prove? Does it make them feel important for a moment that they don't need to because of their position of privilege, maybe from their parents or good opportunities that others didn't get? People who work hard like the idea of a saftey net in case something goes wrong and they need help themselves. People who just feel superior and entitled look for any opportunity to rub it in someone else's face that they don't need the same kind of help.

No man is an island, meaning that everyone has gotten help from somewhere at sometime. If you help happend to come from the government instead of your family or connections, how is that any less of a human need? I think this is one of the few good things our government does with tax money, it beats bailing out rich CEO barons and killing innocent Arabs and maiming our soldiers over international profiteering rackets.

Feeding children is a blessing that God will reward. It is a charity, like in the Bible it says to do charity and it begins at home. Those who despise and harrass the poor will one day answer for it. Look at the rich man and Lazarus in the Bible. The rich man went to hell and Lazarus to heaven though he spent his life fighting with dogs for the scraps that fell from the rich man's table.

To deny a child or mother bread is just sick.

Best thing she could do for her children is park the car in the garage, close the door with the motor running, take nice long deep breaths and fall asleep.

Welfare is there to help people who need it. She has 14 kids...she has no money...I'd rather see her get welfare than see her children starve. Sometimes pride gets in the way when you need help, but at least she knows that being able to feed her children is more important than not.

Hey, back up here. She has been getting SSI for at least four of her older kids because of mental/emotional differences/disabilities for quite some time. She's getting SSI for at least one of her octos. That is like five monthly payouts that she's been getting for quite some time. Those kids have probably all been on Medical Assistance. She's definitely a mental case, so she's probably got her own little SSI check coming in every month, so it's a BFD now that she's going whole hog on the government teat. What's the surprise there?

As much as I find her disgusting, that is just not right for people to push their ideals on her and call her at home threatening her. If people want to get angry get mad at CEOs and banks, etc not moms trying to raise kids.

RE #17-victory - "Ethics" my hard-working ass. Not one of those children dropped from the sky with a note forcing her to take care of them. At no point was she held with a gun to her head forcing her to have 14 spawn with absolutely no source of income. You talk about "ethics"? ARE YOU F'ING SERIOUS? Ethics is certainly not when she's sucking money out of hard working people's paychecks to pay for her own freaking choice!! I never had an employer give me a damn penny extra because I *chose to have more kids*. Why the hell should I have to pay for hers? Ethics indeed!

She claims there were a couple of positive calls??? I call MASSIVE bullsh!t on that one!!! There is no way anyone is gonna call and congratulate her for having 14 kids, tons of opportunities and still squandering them away and ending up on welfare!

I'm sorry, but she is a complete idiot and the kids need to go to good homes before they get screwed up any more by this wack job.

She should be put in prison and the kids sent to a prison work farm. Nothing more than a common SOW.
