They are savage!
When you agree to have your entire life publicized on a reality show, it’s going to come with a good amount of haters. Every choice, live change, and new pregnancy is going to be praised, but it will also be criticized. What the cast members of Teen Mom probably didn’t realize when they signed on to the show is that they’re also signing up their children to be in the public eye nonstop!
It’s hard to criticize a baby, but as the children of the Moms get older and older, people critique them with less restraint. You might think it’s impossible to make fun of a three-year-old, but internet trolls are pretty relentless.
Now, Kailyn is experiencing this firsthand after trolls completely went off, tearing into one of her sons relentlessly. Hopefully her little one didn’t read anything they wrote!
By now, the Teen Mom cast members are probably used to getting serious hate on Instagram. Even the most popular cast members still get haters and trolls. What they might not be used to, though, is their children being targeted as well!
Kailyn Lowry experienced this firsthand when the comments section of one of her Instagram updates got out of hand. There were plenty of people criticizing her, but what she didn’t expect was how many people would criticize her three year-old-son, Lincoln!
The star posted a picture advertising a baby sling featuring newly-named baby Lux and Lincoln in the shot. Of course, the trolls couldn’t help but dive in. They saw past the sling and focused instead on Lincoln, and they weren’t particularly kind.
One user wrote, “OMG LINCOLN’S HAIR! Terrible. How could you do that to him Kail???” Another wrote, “What’s up with Lincoln’s hair? OMG LMFAO SO. BAD.”
The commenters were relentless, with another saying, “Lincoln’s haircut is making me feel so much secondhand embarrassment for him. Why Kail? Just why?”
Luckily, many people restored our faith in humanity when they came to Lincoln’s defense. “It’s really sad when people have to pick on a kid’s haircut,” one user wrote. “You don’t like it, that’s fine but keep it to yourself. No need to be posting nasty comments.”
Kailyn gets hate on her pictures all the time, but apparently people coming for her son pushed her over the edge. She has since disabled comments on the particular post and deleted all of the previously posted comments criticizing her young son.
In fact, this isn’t the first time that Kailyn has faced off with internet haters criticizing her children. In 2015, she even threatened to no longer post pictures of her children to her social media because of her followers’ rude comments. “Don’t ask for pictures and if you’re thinking about leaving a rude comment then unfollow me. I don’t want to hear ‘you put your life on tv so deal with it’ either,” she wrote at the time.
In the meantime, Kailyn is dealing with her another social media dramarama — one that she’s stirring up herself! She took to Twitter to call out one of her baby daddies, writing, “Simply being present doesn’t mean you’re a good parent. Don’t @ me.” Of course, because she has three baby daddies, it’s hard to know who she’s calling out!
Even though she got criticized for this shade, many people came to her defense. “Yeah. I agree with her. I mean, I don’t know if Chris is actually involved or which babydaddy she’s talking about, but being ‘present’ and posting Instagram pictures or acting like you’re around all the time doesn’t make you a good parent,” wrote Reddit user bouquetofpencils.
