Instagram was not happy to be seeing Amber Portwood featured in the new trailer for the upcoming season of “Teen Mom OG” – the MTV franchise will reprise its show with an all-new season on March 17.
Tuesday brought a video from “Teen Mom” on Instagram, also reposted by new face Mackenzie McKee, with fans proving quick to respond – in particular, over troubled cast member Amber Portwood.
2019 saw Amber arrested for domestic battery following allegations that she’d attacked then-boyfriend Andrew Glennon with a machete in the presence of their infant child.
The trailer showed the cast members in full. Maci Bookout and Catelynn Lowell featured alongside Cheyenne Floyd and Mackenzie McKee, with footage also including Amber – she was seen in a vehicle with her daughter, plus baby daddy and ex Gary Shirley.
Over on Mackenzie’s Instagram, comments were clear.
“Wow, can’t believe they’d keep Amber. ? MTV disappoints hard on this one! Glad you’re on tho, only reason I’ll watch,” a fan told McKee.
“Ugh Amber,” another wrote.
“Can we get rid of Amber tho??” one user asked.
July 2019 saw Amber lose custody of the child she shares with Glennon. Baby James is stuck in the middle as his parents battle it out in court, with Amber having accused Andrew of violating their custody order in January.
Remarks over Amber continued on Mackenzie’s Instagram.
“Hopefully without the Disgraceful Amber she doesn’t even have any custody of her kids,” one fan wrote.
Meanwhile, another claimed to have stopped watching due to the support Amber was receiving on social media.
“I stopped watching when everyone was supporting Amber’s bad behavior,” they wrote.
Meanwhile, over on the “Teen Mom” Instagram, calls for Amber to be let go continued. One fan recalled the 2019 firing of former “Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans in their comment.
“I’ve followed teen mom since they were teen moms and I’m disappointed they’re still shooting with Amber. She needs to be fired like Jenelle ?,” the user stated.
“Amen sister,” a fan replied.
Amber has alleged that baby James was “nipped” by a dog while under dad Andrew’s care over Christmas. She claims that despite Andrew reaching out to her about the incident, he failed to inform her of an emergency room visit. Amber further alleges that Glennon didn’t provide her with a photo of the injury until three days after the incident.
Former “Teen Mom” cast members have a way of staying in the news. Farrah Abraham left “Teen Mom OG” in 2018, but her headline-making has proven major this year. The 28-year-old sparked major rumors that CPS had been called on her and daughter Sophia recently, with allegations that Farrah had left Sophia alone in L.A. while she vacationed abroad.
Farrah denied the rumors.
“#LinkInBio… Here’s the TRUTH on Child Protective Services being called on me regarding Sophia. I’m DONE staying silent. This is the one and only time I will speak on this bullsh*t. Haters, stay jealous. ?,” she wrote, before giving an interview stating that Sophia is safe and that the CPS calls were never made.
