WTF is happening in this video?
Teen Mom has shown some of the brightest and happiest sides of humanity, but it has also aired some of the darkest. Over the years, the stars have shared some experiences that are enough to upset anyone viewing. Among these are clips that reveal heartbreaking moments concerning the cast member’s children, and abuse and neglect are no stranger to the screen.
Now, one Teen Mom star has chosen to share a video that suggests they may be participating in the harassment of their own child.
When a Teen Mom cast member shares something to social media, it can immediately have thousands of eyes on it. Maybe Tyler Baltierra’s sister Amber wasn’t thinking about this when she shared a video that many fans have found disturbing.
“I love them all!”
Amber captioned this video, “I swear I love them all.” In the clip, her boyfriend Billy dances to a song playing on a speaker. Amber’s daughter walks onto the porch and pats Billy on the back, then he stops to look at her.
Amber’s daughter jokingly raises a fist to Billy, and then he turns and smacks her on her behind. Off camera, Amber yells, “Yeah, you rock them short shorts! You’re your mama’s baby! Uh-huh!” Then Billy attempts to grab or hug her daughter, but she backs away.
Amber clearly found this entire exchange funny, but that’s not how fans on Twitter saw it.
“Cut his hands off!”
“Hey @TylerBaltierra @CatelynnLowell @TeenMom @mjfree @MTV someone want to step up and save this CHILD from being victimized and sexually harassed since her mother obviously doesn’t give a sh*t?” wrote Twitter user @1bittersweet01. User @angieohmy83 wrote, “How sickening. My heart hurts for her. She pulls away from them both. He says ‘ya in those short shorts’ and then when the mom says ‘uh huh you rock them short shorts your mommas baby’ he totally says ‘yeah you know not to do that again’ like is this something common for her💔.”
Many on reddit were disturbed by the video as well. User ReginaldDwight wrote, “How a parent can be okay with multiple people pawing at her daughter the moment she walks out on the porch is mind boggling to me. Jesus christ. Your kid walks out on the porch of her own house, wearing completely acceptable clothes (not that anything she could have worn would have made this okay) and instantly gets harassed from all sides. Gross. Grow up, be a mom to your kid and teach your boyfriend and scummy friends that she’s her own person who they don’t have a right to start mauling. Poor kid looked so uncomfortable, too.” User ToriJenelleSoulmates wrote, “If my boyfriend ever slapped my daughters a**, I would cut his hands off.”
