The drama never ends for Jenelle Evans, who is once again under fire from “Teen Mom” fans for making a joke about people who wear face masks to protect themselves and others from the coronavirus. While many places have made mask wearing mandatory, it is somehow still a controversial topic among many people who think it’s governmental overreached to force citizens to wear them.
While Evans didn’t really take a side on the topic, her tweet came off as insensitive to some.
“Please speak up if you’re wearing masks, it’s hard to hear some of you,” she wrote, along with crying laughing and shrug emojis. She added the hashtag “just sayin.”
Some were very upset about the comment.
“You really making fun of people taking covid seriously? And wanting to get out of covid season and progress so schools and such can open? I WISH YOUD SAY IT TO THESE PEOPLES FACES WHO HAVE LOST LOVED ONE DUE TO COVID,” one person wrote.

Another said, “I lost my aunt to COVID so if you could be a little more considerate, it would make it a lot easier for the literal hundreds of thousands of people who have lost love ones to this. Thank you.”
A third follower wrote, “Just when we think you can’t get worse you make fun of wearing masks in the middle of a worldwide health pandemic.”
It seems that Evans did practice proper social distancing for the Fourth of July. She posted several photos on Instagram of her kids having fun with some sparklers.
“We had so much fun at home doing our own fireworks yesterday instead of being in a huge crowd! Grabbed some great pictures!” Evans wrote on Twitter.
Her holiday weekend comes on the heels of more drama between herself and husband David Eason. He was arrested a couple of weeks ago after allegedly hitting their friend in the head with a pistol during an altercation at their home.
Eason was arrested and charged with assault with a deadly weapon and communicating threats on June 12.
Shortly after the incident, Evans said she and the kids were leaving Eason. “I’m shaking and saddened by this, it’s time for me to move on from this relationship and find happiness for my kids and myself elsewhere,” she said.
But just days later, it the two were back under the same roof. Last week, Evans shared a video of herself making breakfast for Eason.
