“Teen Mom” fans said Catelynn Baltierra was being “tacky” after she posted a picture to Instagram of a fundraiser for her daughter, 7-year-old Nova.
Nova and her team, “Tiny Tulips,” are raising money for cheerleading.
“So nova is looking for sponsors you can literally pick ANY number on this page and pay the number!” Baltierra wrote via Instagram on August 11. “So if you pick number 20 then you would donate $20! The donations would help with uniforms, practice and competitions!”
“Anything helps thank you so much!” Nova continued. “Forgot to say for donations your name gets put into a drawing for prizes! Can’t believe I’m gonna be a cheerleader mom ❤️🎉📣 if you want to donate to the fundraiser send me a DM.”
Baltierra disabled the comments on the post.

A thread about the fundraiser was posted to Reddit, where it attracted more than 400 comments.

“I can’t imagine having this kind of income and being so tacky,” wrote a third social media user. “I’d be covering all the kids uniforms myself. I’m not even frigging rich and I dump money into kids stuff because them needing to “beg” for money is gross. Just let them enjoy their damn activities.”
