"I give you 5 minutes to reply as the Baby Daddy."
Some responses were humorous, like Twitter user dramadelinquent who said:
"Are you sure it's mine?"
"What does the mother buy? I'd rather have the baby live with me."
"Most people don't even earn that much."
"This baby finished all that medication in a month? I suspect a case of drug abuse. Winter/summer clothes are bought once for that season. Not monthly. So deduct R7 000 from total cost. The parent that has med aid should add their kid to it. Or just condomise people yerr..."
"Nooooo!!! Please send my child to stay with me."
"Give me my baby back coz I see that you are using my baby to feed the entire family."
"But those expenses are just exaggerated bro. Who buys clothes every single month?"
"Nanny kanjani if she's a stay-at-home mom."
