I'm 17 & already a mum… trolls say I only got pregnant to get benefits, but I don't care | The Sun

A TEENAGER has been trolled for becoming a mum at 17, with people reckoning she's simply after benefits.

One social media user took to TikTok to share a heart-warming video between her, her baby and a 16-year-old who's desperate to become a mum too.

In the short clip, which has since taken the internet by storm, racking up more than 266k views in less than a week, the young mum could be seen dancing in a bikini with her baby tucked in her arms.

''17-year-old that has a baby,'' read the text as the redhead showed her best dance moves.

The camera then turned to another teenager, with the caption reading: ''16-year-old that wants a baby.''

However, whilst the duo might've not thought much of it, the video has gone viral, with loads of trolls flocking to comments.

It seems that for the most part social media users blasted the young parent for simply abusing the benefits system – and many thought she had fell pregnant to avoid having to earn money herself.

One person wrote: ''The things you do so you you don’t have to work.''

Another agreed, adding: ''Because then you get free money and don’t have to go to work everyday just hangout with mates and go shopping.''

''And let the government support them,'' a third penned.
