Jenelle Evans isn’t happy with the way MTV edits their shows. Following last night’s Teen Mom 2 special, which chronicled the life of Evans’ mother, Barbara, the reality star and mother of two slammed the network on Twitter for making her look stupid.
For days, Jenelle Evans has been promoting Being Barbara in hopes of having her fans and followers on Twitter tune into the July 11 special. However, after learning her mother had criticized her behavior during the show, she slammed MTV in a number of tweets.
“Never promoting for another show unless I’ve saw the episode first,” Jenelle Evans wrote on Twitter, according to a Radar Online report on July 12. “@MTV makes me look so f**king stupid all time.”

“Honestly haven’t saw the #BeingBarbara special but to promote a show that mainly talked s**t about me with my own blood? Wow. Disappointed,” she continued.
On the show, Barbara, who has maintained full custody of Jenelle Evans’ son Jace since shortly after his birth, targeted Evans’ boyfriend, David Eason, telling a producer, “She’s got another new controlling boyfriend, who I think out of all of them is really the worst of the worst.”
Jenelle Evans has gone through several relationships since Teen Mom 2 began airing years ago, and while she always assures fans that things are different when she begins dating someone new, her mother isn’t buying it this time around and has no plans to allow her daughter to regain custody of Jace.
“I have to do what’s best for Jace,” Barbara explained. “Do you think I really wanted to give up my senior years taking care of this child? I may be in my 60s, but I still know how to have fun.”
Although Jenelle Evans claims her mother’s decision to maintain custody of her son makes “no sense,” Barbara thinks it makes perfect sense and suggested that if Evans stopped dating “a**hole boyfriends,” she may have a chance at getting her son back.

Earlier this year, during an interview with People Magazine, Jenelle Evans opened up about her ongoing custody battle with Barbara.
“Jace recently asked me: ‘When can I live with you again?'” Jenelle Evans informed the magazine. “I said: ‘Well, hopefully by the summer you’ll be living here.’ But that’s all I told him – I don’t want him to know too much right now ’cause it’s really detrimental.”
As for her relationship with her mother at that time, Evans explained, “We really don’t talk other than if it’s about Jace, because if we are around each other too much we start arguing.”
In addition to her custody battle over Jace, Jenelle Evans was also in the midst of a battle with Nathan Griffith, her former fiancé and father of her youngest son, 2-year-old Kaiser.
“It’s just a lot of butting heads right now,” Jenelle Evans said of their custody dispute. “I think he’s really not putting all personal issues aside – he’s not making it just about Kaiser. I think he’s really jealous of David. He’s claiming I’m letting Kaiser called David ‘Dada,’ but Kaiser knows David by ‘David’ – I would never do that to Kaiser and I would never do that to Nathan because that’s unfair.”
Jenelle Evans’ tweets about MTV making her stupid were deleted from her account shortly after she posted them.
