Karla Lee, mother of slain Chicago 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee, has taken to Instagram to defend herself against criticism from supporters after purchasing a car with money raised on GoFundMe.

Chaquela Moore, a friend of Lee’s, titled the fundraiser “Help Me Lay My Baby To Rest” and approximately $17,500 was raised in 4 days, surpassing the $10,000 stated goal.

After supporters got wind of Lee’s reallocation of funds, the criticism came hard and heavy, prompting her to post videos defending her decision.

The emotional mother claims that she walks to work and doesn’t know if she’s a target. She also told critics who don’t support her to “shut up.”

As previously reported, Tyshawn, who was fatally shot in a Chicago alley Monday afternoon, was lured there and “executed,” police say.
