Homeless couple receives backlash for saying employment is not for them

This homeless couple’s decision to reject traditional work and opt for a tent lifestyle has sparked controversy and drawn criticism from all around.

“Homelessness isn’t wrong if you’re looking at it from our perspective,” the couple, known for documenting their tent life, has claimed.

Their views, shared with their 178,000 followers on TikTok, have ignited serious debate, with many questioning their stance on street living.

Leland Brown Jr. and Breanna, hailing from Hatfield, Pennsylvania, USA, caused a stir when they proclaimed their preference for the term “houselessness” over “homelessness.” In a video shared from their tent, they explained their reasoning, insisting that “houselessness is a flex” and highlighting the survival skills they’ve honed in their unconventional living conditions.

Their words sparked a range of responses, with some expressing support for their autonomy and others voicing skepticism about their lifestyle choices.

Amidst the debate, Leland and Breanna launched a GoFundMe campaign to support their minimalist lifestyle, aiming to achieve financial stability while prioritizing time with Leland Jr.’s son. So far, they’ve raised just $162 of their $10,000 goal.

Exactly how the couple became homeless is still unclear, with conflicting reports about their past and present circumstances. While older videos depict Leland working at various establishments and even living in a house, recent statements indicate that they’re reluctant to pursue traditional employment.

The couple has claimed that they’re in no rush to look for work, given that they’re “too smart for that.”

 

Critics have questioned the sincerity of their choices, suggesting that their lifestyle is more about avoiding responsibility than embracing homelessness by choice.
