'Tanning Mom' Lashes Out

I'm the Victim of a Witch Hunt!!!

5/3/2012 10:20 AM PDT UPDATED: 5/3/2012 4:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Tanning Mom" is red hot over accusations that she's a lousy mother for allegedly letting her 5-year-old daughter burn to a fare-thee-well on a tanning bed -- calling her critics "jealous, fat, and ugly."

44-year-old Patricia Krentcil was in Nutley (perfect) New Jersey yesterday on her way to a hair salon when she unloaded and then proclaimed she was a fabulous mother.

Krentcil was arrested last week after a school nurse asked her daughter Anna how she got a sunburn and she replied, "I go tanning with mommy." Krentcil was charged with second-degree child endangerment. She pled "not guilty."

By the way, you gotta see the part in the video where Krentcil narrowly averts looming plumber's crack.

She is not drunk. She is probably high on endorphins from tanning. Leave people alone. Her daughter looks fine and is hugging her and can barely put a sentnece together. You should see the video at This lady did not put the child in a tanning bed. The shop wouldn't even let her if she wanted to because it is against the law.

They are picking on her for being too tan. They are taking kids away and putting people in jail as criminals over how tan they are. What is is this the Gestapo?

Whatever "salon" she was coming out of when the cameras caught up with her must serve really good drinks. This lady was ultra-trashed. That may account for the Tinkerbell brand bubble gum pink lipstick she applied.

She can hardly speak she's so dumb. Probably burnt the brain cells out of her head. She also looks like one of those rawhide dog bones... Ewww. And I say we burn her to death in a tanning bed for making her kid look like her. They should be more creative with the death penalty. It would be much more of a deterrence.

She(?) has some lips! Why would anyone want to get a tanning like that?

That poor sick woman. She needs help. On the other hand, Dana Carvey could do a great impression of her on SNL.

This lady is crazy. Her daughter is beautiful. Red hair, fair skin..she's probably gonna try to get her to be as dark/orange like her. She's nuts and she needs help.

How does she talk when her lips don't move, that is amazing.

TMZ should change the 'hate' button to 'boo' and change them back to thumbs.

There is no child abuse here. Just a family being taken apart by a bunch of idiots.
Welcome to Child Protective Services:
Where you can beat a child, burn a child with cigarettes, rape a child, break a child's bones, torture a child and....Child Protective Services will let you keep the child or give the child back after "therapy".
But take your child to a tanning salon to wait for you while you tan...and you're an evil monster who deserves to be jailed, harassed, and lose your children.
