WLLR's Is It The News...Or Not?


Which is true?

The Headlines:

  • Trampoline Being Installed In White House (FAKE)
  • Study Shows Football Cuts Down Husband's Household Productivity by 20%
  • Babysitter Being Sued After Feeding Vegan Kids McDonalds (REAL)

In Australia, a 19-year-old babysitter was taking care of a seven-year-old girl and a nine-year-old boy. Wanting to reward the kids for good behavior, she asked the kids if they'd like to do something special for dinner. They both requested a chicken nugget Happy Meal from McDonald's. That was all fine and good except for one thing when the mother found out what the children had eaten, she went ballistic. Apparently, the family is vegan, but the babysitter says the mother never once mentioned that fact. She said the mother came home and literally ripped the nuggets out of their hands and started screaming, saying how horrible the babysitter was for allowing her children to eat dead corpses. The mother reportedly threw the babysitter out of the house without paying her and is now demanding the babysitter pay $430 for each kid for something the mom calls the "emotional damage" she caused. Mom threatened to take the babysitter to court if she doesn't pay up. The story has blown up on Australian social media platforms with most siding with the babysitter. One suggested: "Give her contact info to your lawyers. Ask her when you can expect to be paid or if you should settle that as well in court."
