Baltierra responded lovingly back to the fan and respectfully disagreed.
Tyler Baltierra told the Teen Mom OG fan that viewers actually “do have free reign to criticize and comment” on he and Catelynn Lowell’s life.

Baltierra adds that all he can do is to be “authentic” and address issues whenever he feels the need to do so.
