Did they go too far?

When MTV first started filming 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom, they claimed their goal was to record the true lives of girls with unexpected pregnancies and to promote awareness for preventing them. However, after ten years on the air, it’s clear that the show has taken a very different direction.

Teen Mom and its spinoffs have gained a huge amount of popularity and a massive reach, and have been able to educate viewers about the dangers of not protecting themselves as well as drug addiction, criminal activity, and so on. And, of course, it’s also served up a healthy dose of drama.

But as the show goes on, more and more viewers tune in who admire and respect the cast members. Many of the moms are role models for young viewers who may have had similar experiences. In fact, the Instagram comments of all the cast members are often full of fans revealing how much they look up to the girls on the show. Even though this may be flattering, being a role model is a lot of responsibility.

Now it seems that some of the Teen Mom cast members are taking a step in the wrong direction when it comes to their impressionable fanbase. After sharing promotions for this controversial product, many are calling them out for promoting unhealthy habits and even putting their viewers’ safety at risk!
