Maci Bookout may be the fan favorite of the Teen Mom franchise, but even she has come under fire by haters for her parenting! From drinking a beer while holding her daughter Jayde to spanking her son Bentley, click through to find out all the times the TMOG star has caused controversy.
Maci loves to relax with a beer in her hand, but fans criticized the reality star when RadarOnline busted her for drinking while underage in 2012. “The more she drank, the less attention she paid to her son,” an insider told the website. “Her parents were taking care of Bentley – and her!”
But Maci hasn’t only be slammed by haters, as her ex-boyfriend Kyle King called her a “fake a—super mom” on Twitter during a January 2013 fight.
The mother-of-two inked her back with a notebook, her son’s name and a heart. But the meaningful artwork didn't go over well with her fans! “I love them, and I don’t give a damn if you love them or not,” she tweeted.
On MTV’s special Being Maci, fans blasted the Teen Mom OG star for spanking Bentley while he was having a temper tantrum at a bowling alley. “I got spanked as a kid for being a brat when I knew better,” she tweeted. “So questioning this is questioning my parents and I take offense to that.”
In June 2014, Maci was accused of owing the IRS close to $80,000! “She’s in denial,” a source told In Touch. “She’s been telling people that she’s working on paying it back, but very little progress has been made.”
Maci sparked controversy when she was holding her daughter Jayde – and a beer! “Is she drinking???” one user commented, while another tweeted, “Try not to spill that bud lite on your baby.”
