Kailyn Lowry Son Poses For Gay Rights Campaign, Jo Rivera Reacts on Twitter

by at . Comments

Teen Mom 2‘s Kailyn Lowry is a big gay rights supporter. A photo shoot involving her son to bolster that cause has baby daddy Jo Rivera irate, however.

Kailyn Lowry's Son Isaac

The shoot by Kate Hedrick features Kail's husband, Javi Marroquin, and model Wesley Watkins holding Isaac in between them, as if he were their child.

“Doesn’t this make you sick?” a Twitter fan asked Rivera, to which he responded, “yes it does.” But not because of gay rights, or so he claims.

Called out for being homophobic, Jo replied, “Oh no I’m all for equality. But I don’t see how that photo has anything to do with representing equality.”

NoH8, for its part, issued a statement in support of Kailyn Lowry:

“Children learn about love and acceptance at an early age,” a rep said, so “standing up for equality is one of the most important things a parent can do."

"Biases can be learned too, but taking the opportunity to show their child what it’s like to stand up for what’s right gives that child the ability to recognize and defy those biases."

Adds the rep for the campaign, "We’re proud to see so many parents using the NOH8 Campaign as a teachable moment in their child’s development.”

Asked for her opinion on Rivera's comment, Hedrick wouldn't get into it, offering only, “I don’t know Jo. People are entitled to their opinions.”

Do you agree with Kailyn or Jo? And do you think Jo is only upset that his son would be used in the ad, rather than by the content of the ad itself?

a rep said, so “standing up for equality is one of the most important things a parent can do" - Yes what a PARENT can do. Teach your kid equality or tolerance and non discrimination. Reguardless of your pro or con viewpoint on the subject, your 3 year old doesnt have an opinion so dont use your kid as a tool to promote YOUR agenda. Just like people who have 2 year olds walk around with Anti abortion signs who grow up to be pro-choice. Issiac has no concept of gay rights so why is he being pimped out in this and a Prop 8 photo when he was about 18 mths old? I dont usually take the baby daddy side but weather Jo is for equality or not the point Kail should not be exploited their son for a cause he knows nothing about and in fact may grow up to disagree with.

These kids are forced to be airred everyday. on MTV., Teen magazines, news, Hollywood gossip. This isnt about beind a racist or being anti gay. Its about exploiting these children. They dont have a voice. They do what is asked and expected of them. They have cameras consistently following them. And when they dont these parents are demanding more pablicity. Shame on them and shame on anyone who turned this into a racial issue.

I agree with Jo that it is exploiting his son. Javi is not his father nor is the other guy. Why didn't they get a real family. There are many gay fathers with children, it's just fake and very contrived.

You all are disgusting, racist homophobic pieces of shit. If you're telling Mexicans to get out of "your" country...you might want to think about that you dumb uneducated fucks....why don't YOU go back to Europe where your ancestors came from before they stole the Americas from the Indians. You actually think Whitey's dont commit crimes there Tijiuana Ass Show? Go educate yourself you waste of space.What makes you think your skin colour makes you better than someone of a different race, or your gender preference? It's people like all of you that is wrong, not with the country but the world.

I agree with u! And if these people who love to judge would watch the news, they would see that at most of the crimes being committed are By straight people. I wasn't going to mention the race issue because Javi is clearly not 100% white so he can't be racist. Homophobe maybe. But most of the infamous crimes were done by white straight men and women.
