Facebook Page Supporting Nanny Yoselyn Ortega Gets Bombarded by Insults

Rant 12

Krim familyThe Krim family murders of 6-year-old Lucia and 2-year-old Leo is one of the most haunting cases in recent memory. There has been an enormous outpouring of support for the grieving parents, Marina and Kevin Krim. Now the nanny who has been charged with this murder is also receiving support.

The "Support Innocence of Nanny Yoselyn Ortega" is a Facebook page full of support for the nanny who has been accused of stabbing these two babies to death. It's also full of hate. With only 20 "likes," the page has a long way to go before it reaches the 5,300 "likes" on the Lucia and Leo Krim Memorial page. Of course, it's not a popularity contest. It's a question of right and wrong. The Ortega support page has rubbed many people the wrong way. For good reason.

They are peddling a horrifying theory that the nanny was having an affair with Kevin Krim and that Marina Krim killed the children to get back at her husband. It's truly awful.

Luckily, most people don't believe it. Comments on the page range form disgusted to furious. See some below:

This is a disgusting site and you should be ashamed. TWO CHILDREN ARE DEAD. What she did is beyond evil and you want to say she is innocent? Perhaps, if you believe she is innocent, you should leave your children with her. No? Really? Why not.

No way..... So someone just happened to walk in, kill the kids and then leave???? And she cut herself bc she was made about working extra??? NOT BUYING IT!!!!! She stabbed those kids in a fury then went after herself!!!!! HOW IN THE WORLD DO YOU EVEN THINK SHE IS INNOCENT?????? How????????? Who killed those babies and put them in the tub???????

She admitted she killed them. If this page was set up to get support for this woman, you are out of your damn mind! This woman obviously had mental problems and she murdered two babies in cold blood. Too bad she did not succeed in killing herself quite honestly. Hopefully you are just a delusional family member who truly believes this lady is innocent and not one of the usual sickos who troll the internet and do stuff like this to get your jollies!

I must tell you, I "liked" this site, only so word would get out that this page exsists. In the risk of "offending" you (who created this page) I honestly cannot "support the innocence" of this nanny. I have been keeping up with the entire situation, and There is NO way on Gods green earth that monster is innocent. Your page is a joke and all the far fetched accusations toward the victims family is pure hate. Im shocked you thought this was a good idea, what kind of response did you expect?

I am as horrified, disgusted, and obsessed with this crime as anyone else. I also believe that the story we know from the news is likely what happened in that bathroom. But the fact is we don't know. I would never join any Yoselyn Ortega fan club and I do believe she likely did what she is charged with doing. But I also believe people have their right to a day in court.

No one can say with certainty what actually happened. But 99.9 percent of people assume Ortega is guilty. Maybe she is. Maybe she "snapped" out of anger over being asked to clean the house, but she still deserves her day in court.

Hate her after she is found guilty by all means, but don't turn this into another Casey Anthony case. Let's try to let the justice system work. The Krim family has faced an enormous tragedy and the person who committed this crime must pay. If we all jump the gun and assume guilt and hate Ortega, we aren't helping justice happen.

The best thing possible is for this case to run its course and SOMEONE to pay for these crimes. That can't happen when the court of public opinion has already executed the woman. I know I am guilty of it, too. I have thought some pretty angry thoughts about Ortega myself. But, the fact is we weren't there. We don't know. And for the sake of everyone involved, we need to refrain from loud proclamations of guilt or innocence until this trial can commence.

Do you think it's OK to bash Ortega?

Don't let it turn into another Casey Anthony case? Is that what you said? Seriously, that case and ones like it, are why we as a collective, lose faith in the justice system.

Yes, its perfectly acceptable to hate a monster, and express that hatred.

Pages like this have existed since the beginning of the Internet, long time before the act of "trolling" was widely known, and will continue to exist as long as people get offended by them. The sooner people realize these are just people trying to be funny and get a rise out of others, the sooner it ends

I don't know who's guilty because let's face us, none of us was there and knows what really happened. That being said, I find it more plausible that the mother did it.  Sadly, there are far, far more parents that kill their children than nannies and babysitters that kill.  Not that murder ever makes sense, but it seems odd that a nanny would snap because she was working too hard and kill the children.  There are so many parents that kill their kids to get back at their other parent.

Anyone who can think that disgusting monster who murdered two children and left two parents grieving for the rest of there lives is a complete sociapath. She should go back to where she came from and murder her own kind. So this is what America has come to. Murdering children over a dollar. Poverty is a bad thing, but dont come to our country killing for our money. She is a selfish,self centered BITCH!!!!! She should rot in hell and suffer every day of her life. And every day something should happen to the ones she loves to feel with those children parents feel. She is a disgrace to Society. I hope the guilt if any kills her.

The people who put up the Facebook page are her family. They are in denial.

the only people who know what happened are marina and yoselyn. the press and certainly not anyone reading their stories know so anyone commenting with anything but opinion or subjective feeling is wrong. yoselyn will have her day in court, and until then everyone else should not be so gullible, and reserve judgement.

kevin and marina were in our good friends' wedding... we've heard how demanding, goal-oriented and perfection-seeking she can be on those around her. her blog also spoke to that. that's no reason for something like this to happen, but every day we should strive for empathy.

Oh, the hypocrisy. Telling people not to judge and to have some empathy, while in the same breath making accusatory statements about the Krim family using the old “a friend of a friend” spiel. Please, I can just as easily sit here anonymously and say “my cousin’s good friend lived next to Ortega and said she was a conniving, manipulative cold-hearted person constantly looking for her next meal ticket.” See how that works? The only reasonable comment you made was that this was no reason to slaughter two innocent children.

Speculation does not lend credibility or support for novice crime solving. There isn't a sane person that isn't horrified by the slaying of the Krimm children. It is a nightmare, and to think these families may never feel a sense of peace in their lives again. It's hard to imagine the utter lack of regard for the families, and the self-involvement of whoever has created this support page for the suspect, the nanny. It's such a clear violation of decency. If they have legitimate evidence that a 3rd party or ulterior motivation exists, they should do their job as a a citizen and take it to the investigators. Promoting a FB page as if it were a charity cause is an outrage.

Are you kidding me????!!!!! SHE IS GUILTY. I don't give a f about our justice system. Their mother came home and found them DEAD. She doesnt deserve a trial. Casey Anthony ???!!!! Lets lump her with OJ while we're at it and le her run free with all the other killers. This case is WORSE. SHE STABBED BABIES!!!! TO DEATH. How could anyone think anything different!?

nonmember avatar Phillip

So Lisa: The mother came home and found them dead? How does that fact alone make her Guilty.... use some logic. There is no evidence in that statement to definitively put the act on someone's shoulders.

Yes she PROBABLY did kill those babies, in fact she MOST LIKELY killed them.... but truthfully you have no idea. Nobody except Yoselyn knows the actual truth about what happened. Let's let the justice system do it's job and find her guilty if she truly is. It could have been a god damn hitman for all you know.
