Jenelle Evans took less than an hour to be told that “not giving a f-ck” is working for her. The former “Teen Mom 2” star whose social media slamming this year has turned from small-time insults to full-on body-shaming updated her Instagram on Wednesday in a tiny colorful bikini as she posed in swampy beach waters – Jenelle, 28, was getting her “Vitamin Sea,” and she had zero problem baring her body after her Mother’s Day snaps had fans cruelly asking her when she’s due.
Keep scrolling for the photos – summer seemed to be suiting Jenelle. A mismatched, tie-dye bikini showing off the MTV face’s curves, tattoos, and progressing tan was quickly noticed by her 2.9 million followers – while a giant wave of support over Jenelle’s confidence came in, so did questions about the bikini, with Jenelle responding. The photos showed the mom of three smiling from behind shades and calf-deep in waters:
“Little bit of Vitamin Sea ?✨ #BeachDays,” she wrote.
Jenelle then swooped into the comments section of her own post – scroll for this, plus her “cheap” bikini.
Jenelle racked herself up over 1,200 likes for responding to a fan writing: “I’m glad you are showing your confidence! I struggle wearing a bikini at a size 9.”
“ANYONE can look good in a bikini!!!! ?,” Evans replied, adding:
“Just have to find the right style/size. Not everyone looks the same in identical bathing suits. There’s even cute 1 pieces I’ve been buying lately. Try Zaful.com , they are cheap and SUPER soft. Don’t put yourself down! ❤️”
Responses were overwhelmingly positive: “Loving that swim suit glad you’re rocking it regardless of the haters,” one user wrote.
Mother’s Day wasn’t the easiest ride for Jenelle as fans lashed out at her both for reuniting with formerly-estranged husband David Eason and bravely baring her bikini body for a family ocean outing. As The Blast reported, the woman who has had her tubes tied was taunted by trolls querying if she’s pregnant – Jenelle has been shutting down the haters one bikini at a time, though, with COVID-19 seeing her make headlines for a bikini twerk posted to her TikTok.
March 19 saw Jenelle in the news for straight-up admitting that she’d gained a few pounds:
“Having some fun with Jace and Maryssa while we self-distant ourselves from the public ??? (Yes, I’ve gained weight.)” she wrote on TikTok.
Jenelle’s activities remain eyebrow-raising since she was fired from “Teen Mom 2” in 2019 after David Eason fatally shot the family’s dog Nugget, alleging that the canine bit 3-year-old daughter Ensley. Off screens, Jenelle has been running her alleged “sale fail” JE Cosmetics business with mixed reviews, also regularly – and some might say unfairly – getting slammed over her family life.
