Fans are furious!
The season finale of Teen Mom 2 aired last week, but that doesn’t mean the complete end of the season. As is tradition, the girls all flew out to hang out (and fight) in person while filming the reunion special. During the special, all of the girls, their exes, and even members of their family got together to review the biggest moments of the season.
Jenelle Evans is known for having emotional reactions during the reunions, and this season she kept with tradition. The star stormed off the set and refused to film. Shockingly though, it’s not Jenelle fans are criticizing. Instead, they’re coming for reunion host Dr. Drew.
Dr. Drew’s job is to tease some serious emotions out of the girl during the reunion special, but did he go too far this time? Many fans are furious about the comments that Dr. Drew made about Jenelle during this season’s reunion.
Reality star or not, it’s pretty safe to assume that enduring a Teen Mom reunion would be difficult for anyone. The stars have to relive some tense moments of their lives, including some seriously traumatic moments. On top of it, the notorious Dr. Drew puts enemies right next to each other on the couch and prods the girls into accessing their most difficult emotions. That’s why the Moms always know they’re probably going to cry at one point or another during filming!
Dr. Drew isn’t exactly the most popular member of the Teen Mom adjacent cast, but he made a significant enemy last episode in David Eason. He infuriated Jenelle’s beau so much, in fact, that David stormed off the set with his wife, refusing to film the rest of the special.
That said, many fans noticed that Dr. Drew wasn’t entirely blameless during the reunion filming. In fact, many are accusing him of encouraging abusive relationships between the stars.
Dr. Drew asked Barbara if David was her least favorite boyfriend. We all know Barbara isn’t crazy about David, but she replied that she found David to be “the most controlling.”
“To be fair to David, Jenelle needs containment, right?” Dr. Drew asked. “That’s been one of her problems. She couldn’t be contained.” Dr. Drew then repeated the sentiment when talking with Nathan later.
Fans lost it.
“Number one, if Jenelle needs containing she needs to learn how to contain her own d–n self,” wrote Reddit user emdee39. “Number two, this is obviously a controlling relationship and it played out right there for everyone to see, but Dr. Drew continued on with his containment schtick rather than address the issue. F–k that.”
“While Jenelle displays some unsavory behavior at times, no one should be controlled this way by their romantic partner. To hear a physician on a national television show call this type of control a good thing is downright nauseating,” user Liltidbit agreed.
Some even wanted Dr. Drew to be removed from the show!
“We need a working professional woman on the show. Dr. Drew needs to be removed. He is unprofessional and lacks the knowledge to truly help these individuals or at least mediate in a fair and healthy way,” wrote user whatthewhat.
User 2pinkfood2 said simply, “Dr. Drew makes Nathan look insightful. Ugh.”
