Teen Mom OG star Mackenzie Standifer unexpectedly returned to the show this season after MTV fired her and her husband, Ryan Edwards. But, on social media, Standifer appears to be biting the hand that feeds her. The mom of two recently took to Instagram to complain about the show’s producers, and the response from fans has not been entirely positive.
MTV fired Standifer and Edwards this past summer because they did not want to continue his storyline. Edwards has been struggling with a heroin addiction and has already been through two stints in rehab. He has also had a ton of legal trouble.
His ex and baby momma, Maci Bookout, didn’t want Edwards on the show anymore because she didn’t want their 9-year-old son Bentley to see details about his dad’s struggles with addiction.
In October, Standifer gave birth to her and Edwards’ first child together, a son they named Jagger. Edwards was not present for the birth because he was in rehab. He is now home from treatment but hasn’t made any more appearances on Teen Mom OG.
Standifer has also kept baby Jagger away from the MTV cameras, and she has covered his face with emojis in all of the pics she has posted on social media. She says that her son’s privacy is important, and some fans have applauded her for the decision. However, others don’t think it is necessary.
Recently, a fan asked Standifer if she was covering her baby’s face at MTV’s request, and Standifer had a fiery response to the question.
“LOL. I told MTV to p**s off when they tried to film him, and they still tried their hardest. So now you guys get to hear commentaries about him, which is super frustrating,” wrote Standifer.
According to The Hollywood Gossip, there is a bit of confusion about what Standifer meant by the last part of her response. What commentaries? From who? Is someone really going to bad mouth a baby?
Standifer’s remarks have led some fans to believe that is time for her to take a break from filming, especially since she has said in the past that she would never return to the show.
And, if anyone thinks that the couple is going to break up because of his drug issues, Standifer made it clear that she wasn’t going anywhere.
“Just because someone has a problem, doesn’t give you an excuse to give up,” wrote Standifer on Instagram.
Despite “quitting” the show, Mackenzie Standifer has popped up multiple times this season on Teen Mom, now that Ryan Edwards is out of rehab, let’s see if he makes an appearance too.
New episodes of Teen Mom OG air Monday nights on MTV.
