She shuts them down!
For the most part, the Teen Mom cast keeps their social media fights amongst themselves. Whether it’s throwing shade or straight up fighting with one another, it’s not uncommon for them to be at each other’s throats.
So when a fan says something so inflammatory that one of the moms speaks to them directly, it’s normally pretty out of left field. That’s exactly what happened when a fan decided to speak up about this crazy rumor, and Jenelle totally shut it down.
A Rough Past
If you’ve been following Jenelle from the beginning of her career, you know that she’s gone through some rough patches. Even though she’s engaged and planning a wedding right now, on top of being a mother of three and a stepmother, she didn’t always have her life together. She and David both have histories involving substance abuse, and sometimes their pasts come back to bite them.
The Root of It All
It all began when Jenelle posted this innocent picture of her husband and newborn on Instagram. It’s a simple picture of David and Ensley both dozing together on the couch after feeding her. Jenelle captioned it, “#DadMode gets ya tired sometimes.”
In the picture, David’s skin codition, vitiligo, is visible on his left hand, which is what prompted a fan’s strange comment.
David has never addressed his vitiligo publicly, even though it’s not exactly kept as a secret. It’s noticeable in many of his pictures on social media.
For some reason, one of the fans took a glance at David’s vitiligo and let their mind run wild with possibilities. This fan in particular took it upon themselves to comment, “Does he have aids whats up with his hand?”
Jenelle didn’t last very long before shutting him down entirely.
