Leah Messer, a star on Teen Mom 2, shared a picture via Instagram of her three daughters on a flight, and troll comments got nasty.
Leah posted a photo outside the cockpit of her kids posing with the pilots and said: "Thank you @allegiant for being amazing. Your staff made my girls flight to vacation one to remember!"
First, fans freaked out over her daughter's nails and couldn't decide if they were press-on or acrylic (does any of that matter?), and then one troll got particularly nasty and began with: “She should be teaching them class and education so they avoid her path." But they didn't stop there. They poked at Messer's nails and "fake hair" until they finally said: “If it wasn’t for MTV, she’d be sliding down a pole. Next.”
According to Inquisitr, Messer hit back, claiming the woman clearly knew nothing about her and encouraged her to leave her page. "That’s a good oneeeee but clearly you don’t know s**t about me or the life I lived as a child. Bioooootch. Get off my page," she wrote.
Messer has been starring on Teen Mom 2 since the show began in 2011, so she's no stranger to being in the public eye--but it can't get any easier dealing with such hurtful comments. Her social media presence is consistently positive and focused around her daughters. On one recent post, she said: "Destructive, hurtful and dysfunctional generational toxicity ended with me. My girls will always KNOW that they are POWERFUL and can shape the world around them anyway they want!"
