Save my son!
Recent events shown on Teen Mom 2 have opened fans’ eyes to what life might be like within the Eason home — and they don’t think that it looks healthy for Jenelle and her children. In a recent episode, Kaiser was shown screaming “Feed Me!” while Jenelle and David couldn’t be bothered to help. The bizarre scene had fans worried about the three-year-old’s treatment within the Evans-Eason home, and (of course) they took to social media to speak out.
While fans are concerned about Kaiser, there’s someone who might care a little more: his father. Even though the toddler spends most of his time with his mom, Nathan Griffin has partial custody of his son. Now, he’s speaking out about the condition of his son and circulating the #SaveKaiser campaign on his own social media!
It’s pretty common for fans to get online and discuss a new episode of their favorite show after it airs, and Teen Mom is no exception. On the contrary, TM has one of the most devoted fanbases on the internet! Then again, the usual online discussions are nothing compared to what happened when “Love You, Mean It” aired earlier this year. This time, it wasn’t drama or jokes that the fans were sending out into the world on Twitter. It was concern for a child’s well being.
In the episode, Jenelle and David got help from the producers to snap the perfect shot for their save-the-date. The only problem was that they left Jace and Kaiser to play a few yards away. When Kaiser came over to look at the camera, David grabbed him by the arm and walked him back to the play set — an action that set off alarm bells for many viewers. To make matters worse, the three-year-old later screamed “Feed me!” at the couple from afar as Jenelle and David ignored his cries.
Between the two events, fans were seriously concerned about the way that Kaiser was being treated both on- and off-camera.
Considering how upset fans were at the display, it’s no surprise that Kaiser’s father, Nathan, was horrified. The controversial “Teen Dad” spoke out about the way he saw his son being treated in the episode. He even joined in on the “Save Kaiser” campaign.
“They were supposed to ‘#savekaiser’ last night after my mom got off the airplane. I wonder what happened?” the star wrote.
He also posted the above collage of photos with his child which he captioned, “Poor guy looks miserable! Jk” and posted a video of his mother, Doris, singing to Kaiser. He wrote on the video, “Nana is so mean as well! YESSSSSS! #SaveKaiser,” with some laughing emojis, referring to the long running custody battle and accusations of abuse that have flown between his family and the Evanses.
He then added a video of himself on the phone with Kaiser. He asked, “Where do you want to stay at?” Kaiser replied, “At daddy’s house!” Nathan asked, “Why, what’s wrong?” And Kaiser replied, “I don’t want to go at mama’s house, I want to go to daddy’s house.”
Nathan asked, “You say you were crying. Why were you crying?” Kaiser said that he wanted his Nana and his Daddy.
Nathan said, “I’m so sorry, buddy. I wish Daddy was there with you.”
Fans were less than thrilled with Nathan’s video, though. “Please don’t put that innocent bby in the middle,” wrote Twitter user mrskwatkins. “And don’t even talk bad about his mother around him. No matter what she does.”
User casinjth agreed, “Exactly. Using children as leverage is about as evil as you can get. Shows how little you really care about the child.”
Others thought the video may have been faked. “Sounds like he’s being coached,” writes VictoriaMacayla. User Jennabugg0930 writes, “Sounds like a normal talk with any toddler. They always want the parent who isn’t there.”
