We're only one episode into Teen Mom 2 Season 7, and already Leah Messer is being criticized by fans of the show.

Leah lost custody of her twin daughters last year after allegedly failing to get them to school on time on several separate occasions.

The hectic morning portrayed on the show may have made some viewers more sympathetic to Leah's plight, but it also earned her a ton of criticism, as many fans on social media slammed the 23-year-old for her failure to properly feed her children in the morning.

“Since school starts at 7:15, it’s been really hard waking up early enough to get out of the door,” Messer said in a voice-over, as she rushed her three daughters out of the house.

"You're always worried about everything else except for going to pick us up and giving us lunch," 5-year-old Aleeah complained once they were in the car.

"I'm cold, and I don't have nothing to eat. You never get us up for breakfast."

“I’m not daddy and Miranda first of all!" Leah snapped, referring to Corey and his wife, Miranda Simms. "I’m not cooking breakfast when we already have to get up at 5 o’clock.”

The response on Twitter was swift and harsh, as many accused of Leah of being a negligent and uncaring mother.

It's worth noting, however, that the twins are able to eat breakfast at school, a fact that Leah pointed out, but that most viewers ignored.

Even so, the sight of young children begging for food and being denied is a tough one to shake.
