Leah Messer: QUITTING Teen Mom 2 Due to Backlash From Fans?

by at .  Updated at .

Last week's Season 7 premiere of Teen Mom 2 featured a segment that's earned Leah Messer an incredible amount of heat online.

From devoted fans of the long-running MTV reality show, such criticism isn't unusual. But this round was particularly intense ...


The now-infamous scene in question shows Leah appearing to deny her daughters breakfast before rushing them off to school.

The unflattering portrayal came on the heels of a tabloid report claiming that Leah is a hoarder who lives in squalor with her three children. 

Now it seems the negative press may have finally gotten to be too much for the 23-year-old, twice-divorced West Virginia native.

Messer slammed the show's producers on Twitter over the weekend and at one point appeared to offer them an ultimatum.

"I hope to continue to share my story but I REFUSE to allow it to be twisted for the benefit of a NETWORK!" a clearly enraged Leah wrote. 

Messer has been defending herself against constant claims that she's an unfit mother ever since the episode aired a week ago.

While this a familiar pattern, as you know if you're at all familiar with the show or its blonde cast member, it seems she's finally had enough.

Fans responded to her social media tirade by ... not exactly dropping down on both knees to apologize. On the contrary, really.

Basically daring her to quit the show that made her famous, many of them used the hashtag "#DontBitetheHandThatFeedsYou."

Obviously, we have no way of knowing if the show's editing staff is making Leah look like a worse mom than she actually is.

She has alleged this, and may have a point.

But it's one thing to fume against producers on Twitter, and quite another to actually back it up and walk away from a lucrative TV deal.

What is she going to do instead, become a pipeline engineer like ex Jeremy Calvert? Apply for a position at the local Wal-Mart?

Somehow we doubt she's going anywhere.

How about you? Hit the comments, and watch Teen Mom 2 online to re-live the very bumpy road that's brought young Leah to this point.
