Shawty Lo Ain’t Got Nothing On Me: Unemployed Man Brags About Loving All 22 Of His Children And The 14 Women Who Mother Them
It’s stories like this that really make me believe that humanity is doomed!
Meet 33-year-old Orlando Shaw of Tennessee. He fathers 22 children (whom he sometimes refers to as his “siblings”) by 14 different women. Although he confidently boasts about knowing all of his children’s names and loving all of their mothers, if you ask him on the wrong day, he may lose count and tell you that he has “roughly 18” children by 17 women.
He’s currently unemployed and has been dragged to court by all 14 of those women over unpaid child support, but he insists that he’s a great father because anytime his
18 22 kids call, he comes running. While being a great father doesn’t necessarily mean you have a load of cash to spend on your children, it’s still pretty hard to believe that one man is able to effectively give all 22 of his children the time and attention that they need. Nashville’s CBS affiliate recently caught up to Shaw as he made his way out of a Tennessee courthouse and hot, ghetto and mess are the only words that come to mind to describe his his interview.
“These are my kids we talking about— my siblings—nobody else’s,” Shaw boasted outside of the Nashville courthouse.
“I love my kids and I could careless what anybody thinks,” he continued.
He also shared that he hopes to be “fixed” soon and that he’s mentoring children because he’s unemployed and doesn’t have a job.
“They know I can’t pay no child support. Why you think I’m out her mentoring and talking to these kids?”
“I don’t want no more kids. I wanna be fixed.
When asked if he could name all of his children, he bragged that almost all of his boys are named Orlando and that most of his daughters’ names are also derived from his, for example, Orlandria, Oneisha, Omika and so on. It doesn’t appear that he plans on seeking gainful employment so that he can support all of these children either. When asked if he hopes to get a job soon, he responded:
“Listen, don’t nothing come to a dreamer, but a dream. I go everywhere looking for a job. Where am I gon’ get one at with my linkling [sic] record?”
“I’m just hoping one day I get lucky and might scratch off the numbers or something. I play the hell out of Tennessee lottery,” he admitted with a straight face.
I could go on and on about the stupidity that continued to spew out of this man’s mouth, but I won’t spoil it for you.
