Octomom

I Didn't Want to Go on Welfare ...

BUT I HAD TO

4/1/2012 3:08 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



0401_octomom_videoOctomom tried her best to avoid going on welfare, but she says "becoming totally destitute" forced her hand ... temporarily. 

As TMZ first reported, Nadya is getting $2,000 a month from the State of California, which can only be used on food. 

We spoke to her at her home today, where the mother of 14 said she's hoping she only needs the assistance for a month or two at the most.

Octo has been receiving death threats since the news of her welfare broke, but she feels people should be directing their anger towards those who are abusing the system and not at her. 

Plus if she doesn't get some help, we might see more pics like these. Lesser of two evils ...

I just hate her so damn much and feel so bad for those poor kids that spewed forth from the cesspool that is her heynanoo. She makes me sick. How dare she pop out that many kids, take drugs to make the unnatural act occur no less, knowing damn well before she had ANY kids that she could not afford them, and then claim that it is not her problem that people are angry and disgusted by her collecting that much money out of the tax payers pockets. Are there others who are abusing the system that should be tracked down, yeah, but she is a worthless pile too. I personally believe that if you pop out more kids than you know you can afford (I'm not talking about unforeseen cir***stances such as injury after you have the kids you know you can support) that the kids should be removed from your care immediately and you should be charged with abuse for knowingly bringing kids into an unsafe and unfit environment (unable to provide food and shelter is both unsafe and unfit). I don't advocate death threats in any way but I do advocate criminal charges against her for abuse for knowingly putting kids in a situation she knew she couldn't support before she unnaturally forced her vile body to produce more babies than a hound does. Oh and to get plastic surgery to look like Angelina, gimme a break, she couldn't look like Angelina's BM on her best day even if you uglied up the BM

its funny how some people could be so poor and be so rich at the same time.This woman claims she can not look after her 14 siblings when she can afford her own hairstylist.What she needs is a finacial manager and a real job!
