It’s that time of year, when parents get all wistful about how much their kids have grown and post throwback pictures from past holidays. We all do it, it breaks our hearts and puts a smile on our faces. But if you’re Kate Gosselin, even posting a sweet picture of your kids when they were younger brings out the haters. Merry Christmas, indeed!

Kate Gosselin was accused of exploiting her kids for posting a picture of 3 of them at Christmas a few years back.

A post shared by Kate Gosselin (@kateplusmy8) on

In the caption, which she eventually updated, Kate said that all she wants for Christmas is her 6-year olds back. The picture was from 2012, when the sextuplets would’ve been 8, not 6. But considering I call my kids by each others names and have to actually stop and think when someone asks how old they are (and I only have two!), it was an honest mistake.

But internet commenters don’t believe in honest mistakes! Obviously the error means Kate doesn’t even know how old her kids are and doesn’t pay any attention to them at all.

Kate eventually went back and added a correction to the caption, which you can see in the original picture. And she replied to this commenter with more grace and kindness then they deserved, quite frankly.

Translation: “For fuck’s sake, MY BAD FOR MAKING A MISTAKE, let me correct it to make you happy, random asshole!” I mean, it’s a lose translation, but you get the gist. And it wouldn’t be a Kate Gosselin picture without the “WHERE’S COLLIN?” contingent chiming in!

There’s always one or two! Despite the fact that Kate Gosselin has explained where Collin is and updated fans and viewers on his progress, people still think she’s hiding in some dungeon somewhere or some shit. Of course, even posting the Christmas picture means Kate is a monster who’s using her kids for money.

Yep, that theory holds water. It’s not like they have a show on TV now or anything. Obviously she wants to go back to when they were younger so she can make ALL THE MONEY.

We thought the picture was adorable, and we hope the Gosselins enjoy their holiday. Looking forward to the next round of shit comments from people who follow a person they clearly hate!
