TEEN Mom fans are angry with Farrah Abraham after the reality star screamed at looters, recorded them and called the police.
She said she’s “blessed there’s people like [her] on this Earth,” but people are slamming her for being “outspoken” about this but not about racial inequality and police brutality.
Late Monday night, Farrah, 29, shared videos taken from her apartment of the CVS across the street from her being looted, saying she’s “had enough of the criminals.”
The mother of one posted the clips both to her Instagram Stories and to her feed, ensure that as many of her 2 million followers saw them as possible.
This didn’t sit well with many of her fans.
They’re upset with the Teen Mom for focusing on replaceable “materialistic things” while others are focusing on making “systemic changes” with the Black Lives Matter protests after George Floyd’s death last week at the hands of a police officer.
A “huge fan” of hers told the reality star, who is mom to 11-year-old daughter Sophia, that they’re “really disappointed” with this “wrong message” she’s sharing.
The follower continued: “Right now the spotlight should be on ending police brutality and police violence…Who cares about cvs compared to ppls lives and systematic oppression.”
Others wondered if she realized that people just “want to be heard [because] they are mad n tired” and why she’s “only criticizing responses” to Breonna Taylor and George's deaths and not the deaths themselves.
“You my friend are a part of the problem,” one of the comments told the 29-year-old.
She just kept it going with a second video on her Instagram feed, in which she yells, “Crime! Stop stealing from CVS! It’s caught on camera! Get out of CVS now!”
People couldn’t believe how vocal she was being “about stealing but quiet for racism.”
Farrah praised herself for her actions in her caption, writing: “I’m thankful I use my voice for justice, I call police, I record and turn into police & with over 20 people in jail & 3 cars turned in.
“I’m blessed there’s people like me on this earth who care for store owners, working people!”
After watching both of the clips she shared, one fan called her out for posting “2 videos about looting but 1 post about George Floyd” and asked her to “be on the right side of history [and] use your platform for TRUE good and promote the change that we NEED!”
Another commented: “You’re mad about them looting but silent about them dying. You’re part of the problem. I’m about to unfollow you Farrah.”
One of her followers simply asked: “Where is your outrage for George Floyd?”
Meanwhile, many other Teen Moms have used their platforms to stand with the Black Lives Matter movement and the protests.
Cheyenne Floyd has been sharing BLM posts on social media over the last week of peaceful protests, where fans can donate and what petitions are out there for people to sign.
Cory Wharton has been doing the same, while also noting that he plans to continue to “educate” himself on the issues and will “have further conversations about race, racial identity and equity.”
As for Kailyn Lowry, she’s been sharing resources about how to talk to kids about racism, as well as photos in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
