She’s got a point. Teen Mom fans were shocked earlier this week when MTV decided to air harrowing footage from Jenelle Evans‘ road rage incident where she pulled a gun on another driver in front of her eight-year-old son Jace during an episode of Teen Mom 2. But now, former Teen Mom OG star Farrah Abraham is speaking out, and she claimed that the network and Viacom is to blame for facilitating that incident.
“That was sad that people have gun violence around their kids, and I don’t like that,” Farrah told TMZ. “I mean, Viacom has the blame for that, the producers have the blame for that. They have that footage, they’ve been around it, they’ve been allowing that stuff — and the drugs with Ryan [Edwards]. Do they want to ruin these parents’ lives? Do they want to ruin these kids’ lives? Ask a bigger question — don’t blame the parent, blame the bigger responsibility of production.”
It’s been three months since Farrah has appeared on the franchise, but it seems like she still feels a certain type of way about her former employer after she claimed they “bullied” her into leaving the show she helped create because of her work in the adult entertainment industry.
And she sort of makes a good point — Farrah was not allowed to star on Teen Mom OG because of her work as a cam girl, but they filmed her former co-star Maci Bookout’s ex Ryan as he drove while visibly under the influence without intervening, and they also didn’t do anything to de-escalate Jenelle’s road rage incident.
Many fans felt that the fact that Jenelle put her son in danger while on camera is enough grounds to fire her from the show. “Hey @MTV @TeenMom producers are you going to fire Jenelle for this? Y’all kicked [Farrah Abraham] off the show for being a grown adult that makes her own decisions,” one fan wrote, while another commented, “@MTV seriously, what is it gonna take for you to fire Jenelle?! This is worse than Farrah working in the adult entertainment industry!”
