Popular conservative blogger Matt Drudge and several other conservative websites have called him someone “leeching off society.”
The New York Daily News reports:
“I couldn’t believe people are hating on me like I’m rubbing the benefit card in the face of taxpayers. They don’t get it,” Lafleur told the Daily News. “My video is a parody.”
Sounding like a conservative himself, Lafleur explained the video is a reflection of EBT abuses he’s witnessed.
“That’s the whole point of my video and that’s what I’m trying to stop. There’s a lot of people who really need help but aren’t getting it while too many are abusing the system,” said the self-described “Mr. EBT.”
