An unexpected teen mom The feud has developed in recent days.
In fact, that’s not entirely accurate.
Only one of the fighters has anything to do with the world of teen momand she has not yet responded to the other party’s instigation attempts.
So basically what we have here is Jenelle Evans trying to start a feud with Maci Bookout, who wisely decided not to take the bait.
The trouble started on Wednesday, when the company that posts clickbait on Maci’s Instagram page decided to include an article about Jenelle’s daughter, Ensley.
The link to the article claimed Ensley was missing.
Of course, anyone who clicked on it and read the article quickly realized that Ensley was “absent” from Jenelle’s Instagram era, as opposed to being physically absent in real life.
Jenelle is always a fan of conflict and she’s increasingly looking to stay relevant, so she was quick to seize the opportunity to take on Maci.
And of course, she addressed the issue publicly rather than privately.
“Hey Maci… Fun fact: my daughter hasn’t disappeared,” Evans tweeted.
Jenelle is right here because posting deceptive bait for money is a pretty unethical thing, especially when children are involved.
And while Maci would love to blame the company for giving her sponsored content deals, she is ultimately responsible for all posts that appear on her page.
Of course, Jenelle also posts clickbait for cash, and many Twitter users were quick to call her out on the double standard.
“Yeah, she works with a company that I fired,” Jenelle explained, according to Ashley’s reality tour.
“I make sure my people don’t post negative press about the girls. If something is really negative, I delete it myself and tell my people not to post things like that…,” Evans continued.
” [Maci] gets paid to post outrageous things about “Teen Mom” girls. Almost everyone receives a check.
Jenelle is correct that many teen moms take advantage of sponsored content arrangements.
And most of them accept payment in exchange for posting misleading articles about their co-stars.
But she should have expected that by publicly calling out Maci for something she’s done multiple times herself, she’d make herself vulnerable to criticism.
“First off, I know I’m posting clickbait. Second, I have another company that publishes clickbait other than Maci and I actually fired the company that Maci publishes for,” Jenelle continued before adding:
“Third, why are you asking me if my daughter is missing if it’s like ‘Oh, that’s just a clickbait?’ Why do I have to clear up the rumors then?
Again, this is the rare occasion where Jenelle is actually right.
But since Maci already deleted the link, she can probably go ahead and delete it now.
But we don’t expect that to happen anytime soon.
After all, Jenelle is very unemployed, very bored, and still obsessed with the MTV franchise that made her famous.
