Kailyn Lowry: Racist Comment Draws Criticism From Fans

by at .  Updated at .

Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry is no stranger to controversy.

Recently, we told you how mother-of-two Lowry's breastfeeding photos attracted criticism from fans who deemed them inappropriate.

Ultimately, however, most of her online followers were on Kailyn's side, and defended her right to feed her baby and share photos of the moment if she so desires.

She may not enjoy the same level of support this time around:

Kailyn's latest controversy involves comments that she made to her ex-boyfriend and baby daddy, Jo Rivera. The remarks were first made public in a preview clip that aired after last night's episode of Teen Mom 2:

Reading a text from Lowry aloud, Rivera says, "'Little white boys don't get their haircut like that. '"

The camera then focuses on Rivera's phone, revealing other texts from Lowry that read, "He's too young for that. He's half white," and "I don't like his hair cut like that. Please don't do it."

Following backlash from fans, Lowry responded to the criticism on Twitter today:

"Bahahahaha ok, I'm not racist...Gotta make good TV somehow #TeenMom2"

It's unclear if Lowry intended to blame MTV for the incident or if she was trying to suggest that she'd made the comment in order to create drama for the show.

Either way, Kailyn will have to provide a better explanation than that if she wants to maintain her fanbase.

Watch Teen Mom 2 online at TV Fanatic to relive all the drama of season 5.
