Can a girl live? Jenelle Evans celebrated Mother's Day with her three babies and shared a sweet new photo of her kids on Instagram— but some Teen Mom fans believe she should have included her stepkids in the post. Jenelle posed alongside her sons Jace, 8, Kaiser, 3, and 15-month-old daughter Ensley, and followers didn't hesitate to slam the reality star for seemingly ignoring husband David Eason's children.
"Where's the rest of your kids? Y'all are married now, don't you consider those kids yours as well?" one troll rudely asked before another added, "Correct me if I am wrong but are there not other children involved in your life as well?? To good for them to be in your pic as well?" A third unnecessarily chimed in, "Why not include your stepchildren? You are still a mother figure in their lives."
Despite the negative criticism for not sharing a photo of her stepdaughter Maryssa, 9, and stepson Kaden, other fans took the time to point out that they were probably with their own mom — seeing how it was, you know, Mother's Day. "The same people commenting that she should’ve included David’s kids are the same people that would’ve said she was disrespecting their mom if she had included them," one very logical follower explained.
And that's not all Jenelle was criticized for on Sunday. She was also called out for not thanking her mom Barbara Evans on the social media platform, which, TBH, she probably should've done. However, if the trailer for the upcoming Teen Mom 2 reunion special is any indication, the mother-daughter duo is not in a good place at the moment. Barbara recently sided with Jenelle's ex Nathan Griffith and accused David of abusing Kaiser.
"I’m pissed off. Jace tells me the other day Kaiser pulled his diaper down and had poop and David got mad and was spanking him so hard," Barbara told Radar Online. "Jenelle says it’s a lie. Jenelle always protects the man she’s with. She’s putting this guy again over her children." Jenelle did deny the allegations and claimed David and Kaiser were just playing around.
"He doesn’t touch the kids like that,” she explained. “David punches Kaiser in the face. He plays around! That’s what Kaiser means. She’s taking this out of proportion. Everything is fine and everyone else thinks it’s not."
Well, at least Jenelle's Mother's Day looked drama free. Love Teen Mom? Be sure to join our Teen Mom Facebook group to chat about all the latest updates and juicy gossip!
