Mum Of 16 Kids Hits Back At Critics Who Slammed Her For Buying Toilet Paper
A mum of 16 kids has hit back at critics who slated her for buying so much toilet paper at her local store.
Getting the essentials at the moment is proving to be a bit tough at the moment, due to the coronavirus outbreak.
It's caused loads of people to panic buy loo roll, leaving many people to go without and supermarket chains to introduce restrictions on how much you can buy.
Jeni Bonell, who has 16 children with her husband Ray in Queensland, says she won't be lectured on how much dunny paper she should buy when people don't know her circumstances.
Taking to Facebook, Jeni wrote: "No lady, you don't get to stand behind me in the checkout line in the grocery store, with your voice dripping sarcasm and your crinkled brow.
"I will not apologise for buying toilet paper for my family which is undoubtedly bigger than yours.
"And I will not let you make me feel guilty about it one little bit. Perhaps taking a deep breath would help or try smiling.

"I think the world is definitely suffering from a pandemic, yes, a viral one has now surfaced, but there's been another one that's been brewing for a long time, and that's a worldwide lack of good manners with a symptom of unkindness that seems to accompany it."
There's no denying that Jeni would require quite a lot more toilet paper for a family of that size than many of us.
Bonkers scenes have been unfolding at stores around Australia, showing people take as much as they can seemingly carry.
This unbelievable moment occurred at a supermarket in the Sydney suburb of Guildford and showed a seemingly empty aisle at the start.
As the store opened, people calmly but quickly made a beeline for the toilet paper aisle.
When the clip comes to an end, there were only a few packets of loo roll left, despite the shelves being stacked to the brim just a few seconds earlier.
Aldi had to introduce a rule limiting people to one pack of toilet paper each to ensure everyone had access to toilet paper. The video clearly shows people not adhering to the rule.
The low-cost supermarket also had to ditch its campaign to have toilet paper on its Special Buys list.
