The news that Nadya "Octomom" Suleman is now on welfare has really pissed some people off. A few of them called her up themselves to let them know what they thought about her applying for welfare to buy food for her brood.

Suleman hung up on the particularly nasty calls, including a few that threatened her life, according to TMZ. Here is a round-up of some of the nastier things that callers told Suleman:

"Die bitch. I’m not working for your f**king kids, you’re the one that wanted them."
"You're going to get yours."
"I'm not working to f**king pay --."
"F**k you, you don't deserve --."

A few callers, some of them single moms themselves, actually called to support Suleman and commended her for doing the right thing for her children. Suleman told TMZ in the video above that she considers welfare a temporary solution to get her through the next month or two.
