Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer shared an emotional article about parenting on Facebook on August 18.
In the article, a mother was heartbroken to discover only a few adults had showed up to her daughter’s 5th birthday, despite multiple RSVPs. But rather than have the party without other children, the mother issued a public outcry, telling her followers to come to the party, enjoy the food, and celebrate with her daughter. After the party wrapped, the mother returned to Facebook, where she thanked the dozens of children and adults, who didn’t even know her child, for coming to the party.
In response to the article, the Teen Mom 2 star told fans, “I would do the exact same thing for my girls.”
Throughout Teen Mom 2 Season 6, Messer had been targeted with “bad mom” allegations by fans on Twitter and Facebook, and many media outlets, as well. She’s also been accused of being “unfit” as a parent by her twins’ father, Corey Simms, and her now ex-husband, Jeremy Calvert, has expressed his disappointment in her parenting, as well. Not only has the Teen Mom 2 star taken her twins to school late or not at all multiple times, she’s also failed to take her disabled daughter, Ali (who was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy years ago), to her physical therapy appointments.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, the Teen Mom 2 star appeared to address all of Simms and Calvert’s hateful comments with a Facebook meme last week. In the meme, several comments were made about hurtful things people say, and why they may really be saying it.
“People’s tirades against you will probably reveal to you just how unhappy and disillusioned and frustrated that person is with life, and that’s their problem, not yours. You don’t need to take on someone else’s burden. They need to deal with their anger.
To put others down in an attempt to gain attention, validation, or happiness shows if you’re not jealous of whether have, you show that you’re unhappy with what you have when you intentionally offend them. How you treat others is a direct extension of how you feel about yourself, and when you try to make someone else feel bad or embarrassed of who they are, it’s deplorable.”
The Teen Mom 2 star didn’t mention any names in her post.
