Jenelle Evans Shared A Video Of Her Daughter Eating
Evans shared a video on her Instagram story where her daughter Ensley was seen eating toast and half-cooked eggs. She captioned it, “Does your child eat runny eggs?” alongside a “Yes” or “No” option to be picked.
Evans, 31, tried to feed her some, but she declined before stuffing her mouth with the food by herself. She can be heard in the background as she says, “Hmmm. Yummy runny eggs.” The former “Teen Mom” star noticeably used a filter on her kid, an action which offended a lot of her fans.
Fans Angry At Her Use Of A Filter
Fans didn’t like that she used a filter on her daughter to alter her appearance, with some going on to call her names.
Per the U.S. Sun, one fan noted, “Filter your own pictures, fine. But beauty filters on your children in every pic/video is just so wild to me.” A second user said, “I couldn’t imagine seeing photos of me as a kid that my parents took, and they all just had filters. I’d be really feeling bad about myself.”
“She looks like a demon in this video. Meanwhile, she is beautiful in real life. Jenelle is just a moron,” another fan shared. A fourth fan commented, “This is one of my biggest social media pet peeves. Giving kids insecurities before they even know what the word means. Smh.”
“I saw someone on my FB post a picture of their brand spanking new, straight out-the-womb newborn with a beauty filter on. People are crazy! Imagine growing up and seeing your mom think you needed a filter to be posted online! It’s gonna create issues for these kids,” one particularly agitated fan shared.
“What a great way to give your daughter body dysmorphia,” a fan simply noted
Fans Previously Slammed Jenelle Evans Over Her Daughter Ensley
When an image of Ensley holding up a book, in which she wrote “Spaghetti and beer,” got posted, several fans slammed Evans for not paying attention as a mother.
The “16 & Pregnant” alum has ruffled many feathers with the way she’s raised her three kids, especially Ensley.
In the image Evans shared on her Instagram story, Ensley held up a notebook and pencil with the eraser close to her nose.
She captioned it, per The Sun, “she asked me what I wanted.” Fans criticized Evans after it was discovered that the young girl’s face appeared to have been altered by a filter.
One fan said at the time, “Between the filtering of her daughter, and the gross pairing of spaghetti and beer, she should go to jail immediately. She grosses me out so bad.”
Another wrote, “Isn’t that just totes adorbs, teaching her kids to reach for the lowest bar possible while showing them the fun side of bad drunk parenting.”

One fan quizzed, “What are y’all’s future plans without jobs?” Evans replied, “I’ve been off TV since 2019, and working continuously. Just because I don’t have a normal 9-5 doesn’t mean I don’t work.”
Another fan noted Evans’ likeness to actress Kristen Stewart and questioned whether she would ever appear in a film.
She replied, “No but I would love to try acting one day.” A fan then asked her, “if you could do any job, what will it be?”
“Producing my own TV show, without me being on it. I’ve always been interested in directing and editing films,” she answered.
