I think it's more that she IS getting government assistance, at least according to another poster here. I actually haven't looked up anything, so forgive me if I'm wrong. But someone else said that she was on welfare and food stamps. If that is true, then I can see why people would be upset about it. If she is paying for everything herself by what she is earning, has a spouse willing to enable this, or has incredibly stupid people throwing money at her, that's fine. But if she is on government assistance in any form, then this is grossly misusing that assistance, and that money could be going to someone who deserves it.
*shrugs* Just my 2 cents. :-) *goes back to lurking*
