Back off, haters! After a fan on Twitter called out Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell for seemingly allowing their daughter Nova to tumble off of a counter during an episode of Teen Mom OG, Tyler had a pretty great response for them. Don’t mess with this dad! Check out how the Teen Mom star reacted via his own tweet in the gallery below.
During an interview with Us Weekly in June, Catelynn said the couple is doing well these days. “We’re living in the same place, we did couple’s therapy together and therapy on ourselves as individuals, which I think helped a lot,” she said.
“Tyler and I just click,” Cate continued. “We’re really opposite, but we have a lot of similarities. I just think really open, honest communication [works]. I feel like some people are just meant to be with one another and I really just feel like that’s him and I; we just really bond and click and connect.”
While one fan seemed to be in agreement at first, the person then had some criticism for the two of them about how they take care of their daughter Nova. She’s one of two girls the parents are raising — the other being their baby girl, Vaeda.
They also have an older daughter, Carly. However, she was placed for adoption because they were very young when they had her. (And you’d better believe they sometimes get comments from trolls about that decision!)
The person replied to the Teen Mom tweet and wrote, “I agree with Ty and Cate. The thing that pissed me off was how could you let Nova climb on the counter? She falls off and starts doing it again and you did nothing.”
The reality TV dad clearly didn’t appreciate the fan’s comments. He tweeted back, “They didn’t show in this scene beforehand, where I told her I was only going to let her sit on the counter for a second until I got her chair that she usually sits on next to me when we make dinner together.”
Other followers defended Cate and Tyler in his replies. “Tyler you are a great dad. Things like this happen. It’s called an accident. You learn from it and move on. All the so-called perfect people that are judging you should just be quiet. And that’s a nice way to say it. You do you and keep being a great dad. #Screwthehaters.”
Another person wrote, “My two year old climbs on the counter by himself sometimes. Your kids are alive and healthy so screw the haters! Being a parent is hard and we can’t all be ‘perfect’. #kidswillbekids #HatersGonnaHate.”
