NEW JERSEY (PIX11) — The New Jersey teen suing her parents for tuition and a $650 a week allowance went on a Facebook rant Friday morning, taking shots at “suburban baby boomers.”

Rachel Canning, 18, claimed she was kicked out of her home by her parents and took them to court for tuition for her high school and college education and for living expenses.

On her “Education For Rachel” page, the embattled cheerleader from Morristown wrote, “Suburban baby boomer types are the spoiled lot, they make massive amount of money a year, they are used to flying to luxury destinations when they want, and buy things that they don’t need, people should be inclined to see things Rachel’s way.”

Rachel says she was subjected to verbal and physical abuse, while her parents, Sean and Elizabeth Canning, say the teen was simply unruly and didn’t want to abide by their rules. Court papers show the teen was suspended from school for drinking.

The judge denied the teen’s request for financial support from her parents.

“We have been stunned by the financial greed of modern parents who are more concerned with retiring into some fantasy world rather than provide for their children’s college and young adult years,” the tirade continued. “In today’s economy there are no more meaningful jobs and without family help it’s usually military or bust.”

The girl’s lawsuit is being funded by her friend’s father, John Inglesino.

The Cannings say the Inglesino family is partly to blame for their daughter’s outrageous behavior.

“She would often tell us how the Inglesino parents would allow alcoholic parties to be held at their house. Mrs. Inglesino gave all the girls wine coolers to drink,” court documents said.

Rachel ends the rant with, “We see parents like this every day, children were always an accessory to them and nothing more, once that accessory grew up and went out of fashion, much like a marriage that people allegedly commit to, the child becomes a throwaway, that’s just how it is.”

The post has garnered over 500 comments. “Quick whining and join the military, they have a program to fix child-adults like yourself,” one comment reads.

Another court hearing for the case has been schedule for the end of April.

    Nothing I have read about the case indicates this child has been "thrown away." Rather, the child has tossed the idea that she needs to show respect to her parents who simply expect her to follow reasonable house rules and be responsible. They've offered her the world in exchange. She simply needs to appreciate all they have done and all they will continue to do if she conforms to their expectations of her while she lives at home.

    What a spoiled little beotch! My parents never did crap for me nor should they have to. So mommy and daddy didn't jump when you barked orders at them. Boohoo My mom tried to kill me, one of my brothers and the wife of another brother but none of us sued her. You need to just stfu and go pay for your own education you entitlement spoiled brat. Your parents owe you NOTHING! What you've done by this little stunt is made America hate you, future employers not want to hire you and no man will ever want to marry you. Who the hell would want anything to do with a gold digger like you. Congratulations, you've lost everything because you have tried to force the courts to give you something that was not yours nor ever would be.

    She might be an idiot, but she is definitely right about boomers being the most self-entitled and moronic generation of all time. They destroyed the system that their parents – a real generation – actually bled and died for so that they could have bigger cars and smaller souls, then passed all the problems (and blame) onto a generation of 20-somethings who had nothing to do with it.

    Screw this girl, but screw boomers even harder.

    Regardless of her rants and blaming she is still faced with life's challenges and must make her own efforts to excel in life. Aℓℓ the ranting in the world won't change that. And where's this boyfriend of hers? He must be hiding in the shadows waiting for her to score some money too. What a DERP❕ 🙎
