A British mom who purchased 300 Christmas presents for her kids has caused a fiery debate both on social media and Fox News’ “Outnumbered.”
Some people were outraged at mother of three Emma Tapping, from the Isle of Man, when she posted a picture of her Christmas tree almost hidden by a mountain of presents to her Instagram account.
Others though it was fantastic and jokingly asked her to adopt them.
“It’s her house. If she wants to buy them a lot of gifts, let her,” Andrea Tantaros said. “Who am I to criticize?”
Her co-host Katherine Timpf was a little more critical while still agreeing that the mom could do whatever she wanted to.
“The kids are probably nightmares,” Timpf said.
“There’s ‘giving’ and there’s turning your kid into a monster,” she added. “I don’t know exactly where this falls along that.”

Social media reaction was mixed as well.

It’s really something wrong with people who can criticize #EmmaTapping . She’s just giving her dream to children, and it’s what is present. — Evgeniy OZ (@eugeniyoz) December 11, 2015

@wfaachannel8 I would hope this is a large sharing tree and not one family. Otherwise, is is very sickening…where is the #ChristmasSpirit — Tall Texan (@japshannon) December 11, 2015
@wfaachannel8 She’s missing a great oppty to give her kids a far greater gift: the joy of giving to others, adopt a less fortunate family
