This week's episode of Teen Mom OG caused quite a Twitter raucous, mostly because people were responding not too well to how Tyler Baltierra dealt with Catelynn Lowell discussing her weight issues. But despite all the negativity, Ty is still praising his fans for all their support—because he's a class act, obviously.

Ty took to Instagram to post this muscle-centric selfie, but also to take a minute to plug next week's Teen Mom OG finale and thank the fans for their love over the years. "#TeenMomOG finale NEXT WEEK! I just want to thank all of the supporters for investing in our story & continuing to take something positive from it," he wrote.

"Being in the public spotlight, being judged by the world, seeing all the hate on social media & on something as simple as living your life can be hell...but I do it for you guys," Nova's daddy continued. "Because every tweet, FB post & comment that expresses how our story has impacted someone's life...makes it all worth it. Much love to all of you & thank you!"

In case you missed Monday's ep, here's the background. In the episode, Catelynn was shown struggling with the weight she gained during her pregnancy, and she got especially upset when she tried on her wedding dress and realized that she'd have to get it made four sizes bigger to fit over her new curves.

When she went home to discuss the dress fitting with Tyler, as well as her dad, David, and her half-brothers, the men were being harsh to Catelynn about her size and her lack of motivation to diet and work out. Tyler said that Cate "never used to finish a plate" before she got pregnant and that she used to be "tiny" pre-baby, and Cate got understandably upset by his comments.

But Ty took to Twitter after the episode to clarify things. "My intention is to never hurt @CatelynnLowell I love her dearly & am just trying to support her through a sensitive subject," he tweeted. "It's hard for a guy to talk to his girl about weight," Tyler added. "It's sensitive & I sincerely do my best to try & honor that."

Tyler eventually apologized to Cate on the show, saying that on their wedding day, Cate will be "beautiful no matter what," further proving that despite sometimes saying the wrong things, Tyler is basically the best boyfriend there is—well, on Teen Mom, anyway.

Do you accept Tyler's apology? Do you think he was being insensitive to Catelynn's feelings about her weight? Tweet us @OKMagazine.
