An Australian mother hit her TikTok followers who accused her of ‘living on Centrelink’ – despite admitting that the government pays her rent, food and bills.
Holly Dunn, 22, who makes candid videos about her daily struggles, retaliated after an online follower criticized her for not being able to buy a car.
‘Well, if you didn’t live off Centrelink, you could buy [a car] yes, ‘asked the follower, eliciting a forceful response from the young mother.

‘Sorry, but I don’t live on Centrelink, I get a payment from Centrelink, but that doesn’t mean anything,’ she said before listing how many expenses the payment will go to.
‘It pays my rent and my expenses like my water bill, my electricity bill and everything … my food for the house.
– But you can think what you want. But I don’t get paid for a car and we’re saving up to buy a car, so don’t judge us.
‘Just because I don’t have a car at the moment does not mean that we are not going to get a car.’

Dunn’s followers were quick to point out that she ‘technically lives off Centrelink’, as she herself admitted that the funds pay her rent, bills and food.
‘Did you just describe literally all the essentials of life based on Centrelink?’ someone commented.
“It means that you live on those payments,” wrote another.
“Our taxes are keeping you alive,” wrote a third.
