Jenelle Evans is at it again.
You may have thought that after a string of scandals that got her husband, David Eason, fired from Teen Mom 2, Jenelle would simply lie low for a few days.
But she didn’t earn the nickname the Carolina Hurricane by behaving reasonably and maintaining a level head.
That’s a photo of Jenelle’s son Kaiser holding a toy gun.
It’s one of several such photos that she posted to Instagram today.
You may be wondering what the big deal is – after all, young boys play with toy guns all the time, right?
And it’s certainly true that in a different context, these images likely would have gone unnoticed.
But as it happens, Jenelle is at the center of a controversy involving guns and social media, and her latest posts are being interpreted by fans as a response to the criticism against her.
As you may recall, Jenelle’s latest troubles began when Eason posted a photo of her shooting a gun on Valentine’s Day.
Again, timing was everything, as the photo was posted just hours after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida that left 17 dead.
Jenelle and David were heavily criticized and rather than delete the post as so many suggested, Eason hurled homophobic slurs at his followers.
Within hours, he was let go by MTV.
There have been rumors that Jenelle would be fired next, and it seems she’s intent on doing everything in her power to make that happen.
The photos are being viewed not only as a defiant middle finger to Teen Mom 2 fans, but also as a crude taunt directed at Kaiser’s father, Nathan Griffith.
Griffith has gone on record as disapproving of Jenelle’s recent insensitive posts, and those who know her best say this is Jenelle’s way of firing back.
“He does not support that,” a source close to Griffith tells Radar Online.
“That is something they should discuss with him first.”
The source adds:
“Nathan doesn’t even allow Kaiser to watch cartoons with guns. He is too young to understand the dangers of guns.”
“Do enjoy being the most hated teen mom ever?” wrote one fan.
“Are you kidding me ( take that kid away from that mom and give it to the dad),” commented another.
As it happens, Jenelle is currently locked in an increasingly ugly custody battle with Griffith.
And with her latest posts, she’s given him even more ammo.
