She couldn't go through with it!
There was a huge shift in the Teen Mom community yesterday when Farrah Abraham announced that MTV had fired her from Teen Mom OG. According to Farrah, her forays into the adult world became too much for the network’s image to handle, and they decided to sever her contract.
However you feel about Farrah, it’s impossible to ignore the fact that getting fired is hard news for anyone to bear, but the timing of this particular firing was especially hard on the star. She learned the news the night she was supposed to perform her second cam show for CamSoda.
Farrah had been advertising and hyping up her cam show scheduled for October 30th, but because of her bad news, she couldn’t go through with her “backdoor” performance. Needless to say, this lead to a lot of disappointed fans, and all of them had to have their money refunded!
Getting bad news can make it hard for anyone to perform their best. For Farrah Abraham, being fired from MTV (for starring in multiple erotic performances) right before she was scheduled to do an anally focused cam show made it hard for her to focus on her work. But that left a lot of viewers disappointed, since they were ready to watch Farrah perform!
At the beginning of her cam show, Farrah opened about the news, sharing MTV’s decision to give her the ax with her viewers. This isn’t her first cam show appearance, but apparently this was one step too far for MTV. She updated her Instagram Live, saying, “I had a super horrible day. MTV fired me from MTV’s Teen Mom because my press for my own brand outshines their press. And also, they were sex shaming me about doing this cam show today.” She added, “I’m no longer, I guess, going to be on MTV because they wanted to sex shame me.”
One Reddit user, vandarama, tuned in for the show, and reported all of the subsequent drama. “The show is a big [clusterf**k] right now, just based on the comments…” they wrote. “Ppl are paying but not seeing her do much of anything. She came back to the free live feed to vaguely apologize then pick up her phone and cut the camera off when pornstar/moderator Molly Cavalli commented for her to answer her phone.”
Then, Farrah came back to announce that she wouldn’t be performing because she was too distraught. “She just came back on to say she won’t be doing anal because of her horrible news today; it’s pretty confusing,” the viewer wrote. Then they updated that refunds would be issued to everyone who tuned in to the show, since Farrah didn’t perform. They wrote, “Everyone is being refunded since they didn’t get an actual show for their money. Her customers had to literally beg her to take clothes off and do anything sexy, so there’s your answer about how into this she really is.”
Apparently, Farrah then had a breakdown in the comments. “She’s melting down in the comments, calling out people for ‘hating’ by not appreciating being defrauded.”
When Farrah performs for the site, viewers had to pay to have full access to the show. Her decision not to go through with the show lead to a number of disappointed customers wanting their money back. This burden fell on the website that hosted Farrah’s performance, CamSoda, whose vice president acknowledged that Farrah’s actions “created unfulfilled expectations.”
In a statement to HollywoodLife.com, CamSoda’s vice president Daryn Parker said:
“Based upon reports in the media, Farrah Abraham was fired from MTV, allegedly for her Oct. 30th performance on CamSoda. Farrah is a strong independent businesswoman, it is reprehensible that she would lose her job because of a webcam performance. We wish Farrah the best and are looking forward to seeing her next successful venture.”
Parker went on to explain that CamSoda still had to refund viewers. He continued:
“That being said, CamSoda values all members of its community, and we pride ourselves on being the premier live cam site. Farrah’s live cam show on Monday night left many fans disappointed. Some have reached out because her social media promotion leading up to the show created unfulfilled expectations. I want to be vehemently clear and say that all users have received a full refund for all the tokens they spent on Farrah’s show.”
Another viewer opened up to HollywoodLife.com about why they felt they deserved a refund. They said:
“Farrah did not perform anal as planned and promoted. Instead, she was dressed in lingerie and used the time during the show to promote her anal products and vocalize her displeasure with MTV’s decision. To clarify, since she didn’t perform anal as we promoted, fans who spent money were refunded.”
As for Farrah, she opened up with her ide of the story on Instagram:
“Sad such a phenomenal show will no longer have its biggest talent on the show because of women hating, sex shaming, hate crimes, selfish, Weinstein company power trip behaviors against a professional hard working, honest mother. I’m proud of myself not giving in to be sex shamed by Viacom network, Proud to not have a network take away financial opportunities for my goals, proud to be an Advocate for a healthy sex life, safe sex, teen pregnancy prevention and so much more while I run companies in different feilds [sic] and scale them. Cheers to basically winning against hurtful disgusting executives who do way more in their personal lives then what I could ever be judged for-I will never be broken by hateful wrong people and if everyone else is brained washed, on drugs, pills, scheming thinking their at the top of their power trips I WISH to always be apart- I give this chapter of my life to GOD & all of his glory & to justice in court.”
