He may feed into the drama with Kailyn Lowry, but Teen Mom 2 baby daddy Chris Lopez isn’t about the back-and-forth with fans. When one Instagram troll tried to come for him in the comments of his post, he shut it down. On Tuesday, November 5, he responded directly to the commenter and let them know exactly how he handles the hate.

After sharing a photo of himself rocking a sweatshirt, sweatpants and basketball shoes on the ‘gram, one commenter kept their snark simple. Instead of writing out what they thought of the star or his post, they left a clown emoji as their response. Chris, 27, wasn’t amused. Quoting the Instagram user’s bio back at them, he wrote, “I don’t argue with stupid, I block stupid. 😌”

That didn’t stop the hater. Seemingly not recognizing the reference at first, they fired back, “Why? [Because] I put a clown? 🙄 The clown is in reference to your two different shoes.” When another user pointed out what Chris was quoting, they continued, “[I don’t care]. He can block me if he feels the need to.” The famous father didn’t respond — and may have already hit that block button.

If he is a clown, though, Chris seems to be working on becoming a better man. During an October Instagram Q&A, he opened up about his regrets surrounding his relationship with Kail, 27, as well as his son, Lux. “Here’s an honest moment for y’all,” he wrote. “I wouldn’t say [I] regret [not being more involved with Lux], but I wish I was there more for his mother while she was pregnant with him. … She really carried my son for nine months, and I was f–kin’ up.”

A few days earlier, he seemingly admitted that even he is over his own f–ck boy behavior. “Real growth starts when you are tired of your own s–t,” read a meme that he shared on his Instagram Story. And it certainly sounds like growth is something he’s been working on. Though he may have been absent during his ex’s pregnancy, he’s since stepped up his game — and Kail even called him her easiest baby daddy to co-parent with. Now that’s progress.
