Did she go too far?
The eighth season of Teen Mom 2 just came to an end, and the last few episodes packed some serious drama in when it comes to Jenelle Evans’ life. Many of the problems began with the now infamous episode titled “Love You, Mean It.” The controversial hour of television sparked persistent rumors of abuse in the Eason household.
Now, it looks like Jenelle is making light of abuse allegations on her Snapchat. Although some fans thought this update was funny, many are furious with Jenelle for making a joke out of serious allegations.
Like many of Jenelle’s significant others, David Eason has a criminal record — including a protective order that prevents him from seeing his son, Kaden. In fact, after David violated the order, there was a chance he was going to be in prison on the day of his wedding to Jenelle!
Thanks to David and Jenelle’s shared criminal records (as well as accusations of abuse from Nathan and his mother Doris) fans have been worried about her children’s safety for quite some time. But things became concrete during a recent episode of Teen Mom 2.
During the episode, David and Jenelle asked producers to help them get a shot for their save-the-date. As the producer Kristen tries to get a shot, Kaiser walks up to the camera and moves it slightly, messing up the frame. David grabs Kaiser by his arm and walks him back to the play set. As Jenelle and David try to get the shot again, Kaiser begins to cry, screaming “Feed me!”
As a result, Twitter users began circulating the #SaveKaiser, and the “Feed me!” moment became a huge concern for those worried about Kaiser’s well being. Jenelle was accused of neglect and abuse, and some extreme fans even attempted to call Child Protective Services to have the children removed from her custody.
Apparently Jenelle doesn’t think Kaiser yelling “feed me” is particularly concerning, though. She claimed that the episode was a series of bad edits that painted her in a bad light. The mother-of-three even threatened to quit the show as a result. Recently, she posted to her Snapchat with a joke about the incident.
In the shot, Kaiser is eating scrambled eggs as he sits at the table with a plate full of breakfast foods… probably more than a little boy can eat! Jenelle captioned the show “Feed me.”
Fans had mixed reactions about this update, and they discussed it on Reddit. User dramasticarrie wrote, “It’s the caption that upset me. Even if it was blown out of proportion, why joke about it?” They added, “She probably should not say it/joke about it while she has a case open against her for possible neglect/abuse of this child.”
User grandmas_beachouse wrote “I️ have no problem when people (try) to make fun of themselves, but it bothers me when it is at their toddler’s expense. I️ don’t think Kaiser was being starved either, but to turn some people’s concern into a half-a**ed Snapchat joke is in bad taste.”
Others were less concerned. User Starbug82 wrote, “I saw it, he’s so cute. At the end of the day I don’t think Kaiser is being starved as he seems like a healthy and happy little boy and Jenelle should feel free to call that out. I admit that I don’t follow as closely but from the episodes I’ve seen.”
User madame_ joked, “I hope Kaiser was eating the bacon first and that’s not just the tiny piece of bacon they gave him. If so, you guys might be right about contacting CPS.”
