Leah Messer is under fire after yet another shocking episode of Teen Mom 2. During the Season 7 premiere of the MTV reality series, which aired on March 21, Leah Messer’s questionable parenting choices were put on display, and fans immediately reacted badly.
As Hollywood Life revealed on March 22, Leah Messer started off the seventh season on the wrong foot when she struggled to wake up and take her children to school, and then proceeded to inform her hungry children that she had forgotten to buy groceries.
As if that weren’t bad enough, Leah Messer then tells her children that if she has to wake up at 5 a.m. to take them to school, they shouldn’t expect her to cook.
“I’m not cooking breakfast when I already have to get up at 5 o’clock,” Leah Messer said.

While 5 a.m. may not exactly be the ideal time for one to wake up, Leah Messer has a responsibility to her children, and with that comes the presumed requirement of feeding them properly. So, as Hollywood Life‘s Brittany King pointed out, Leah Messer should adjust her schedule accordingly.
“First off Leah, there’s a thing called BEDTIME. If you can not muster up the energy to wake up early enough to prep a bowl of cereal for your children, you should not have them during the school week. There is literally no excuse for you in this situation,” King wrote. “It’s downright cruel and malicious.”
Even Leah Messer’s children were upset about the situation, and 6-year-old Aleeah told her mother, “I don’t trust you. Take me back home. You’re always worried about everything else, except for going to pick us up and giving us lunch.”
A short time later, the young child added, “I’m cold and I don’t have nothing to eat. You never get us up for breakfast.”
Then, when Aleeah pointed out that her father, Corey Simms, and his wife, Miranda, did feed her, Leah Messer became irate.
“How do you let your three young children leave the house at the crack of dawn not dressed properly? Your poor daughter cried her eyes out in the backseat because she was freezing cold,” King continued. “Then we had to sit back and watch you endanger all three of your innocent children’s lives, because you think it’s okay to stare at your phone texting while driving down the highway!”
In response to the shocking episode, Leah Messer shared a series of tweets with fans, which only further added to the backlash. In addition to labeling her young daughter a “drama queen” for the statements she made, Messer told fans she doesn’t always text and drive.

The scenes were extremely upsetting to watch, but seemed to shed light on what led up to Leah Messer’s custody loss in October of last year. As fans will see next week, Leah Messer’s ex-husband, Corey Simms, was awarded primary custody of the girls, allowing him to care for them from Monday until Friday. And while the two have since gone back to court, Leah Messer still does not have primary custody of her kids. Instead, she shares time with Simms.
