Chewbacca Mom has made over $400k and now charges for autographs

Not only has Chewbacca Mom's viral fame lasted for a long three weeks and racked up over $400,000 in gifts, but she is now charging for autographs.
After her initial Facebook Live video, she has received swag from Kohl's, trips to New York, California and Disney World, as well as college scholarships for her whole family. Money estimates the net value of it all to be a whopping $420,000.
According to TMZ, the viral star, whose real name is Candace Payne, charged $20 for autographs and photos at Dallas' Fan Expo on Sunday. Her booth was next to Game of Thrones star Jack Gleeson's.
Reportedly, Payne is donating a portion of the proceeds to a Christian ministry initiative - Oaks Fellowship "All-In."

Even though some have posited that Payne is undeserving of her array of rewards, it's hard to be mad at her when you're laughing your way through her original video.
