On the Season 3 premiere of Teen Mom: OG, Tyler Baltierra made some shocking comments about the appearance of his wife, Catelynn Lowell.
Baltierra was accused of fat-shaming Lowell after she announced that she'd like to re-join Weight Watchers and he...
...well, he said this:
He's still head and shoulders above most baby daddies in the Teen Mom franchise, but "I don't want no heifer for a wife" was certainly not Tyler's finest moment.
But hey, we all put our foot in our mouth from time to time, don't we?
Obviously, a loving, level-headed husband like Tyler will just learn from the experience and move on, right?
Um ... yeah, apparently not so much.
On last night's episode of Teen Mom (which you can watch by clicking the video above),
“You’re really indulging," Baltierra quipped, much to the chagrin of TM fans who still really want to like the guy.
Fortunately, Catelynn responded in the appropriate fashion with an abrupt, "Don't be a dick."
Unfortunately, Tyler's snide attitude didn't end there.
“Happy f--king Mother’s Day,” Tyler remarked as he arranged her flowers.
“That’s what you get for women driving f--king trucks," he sighed after Catelynn scratched his vehicle.
It's important to point out that this episode was shot just days after Catelynn left rehab after a month of in-patient treatment for depression and anxiety issues.
So coming back home to be verbally harassed was probably not what she had in mind.
As Radar Online reported today, fans on Twitter were not pleased with Tyler.
And many of them were rather blunt in letting him know it:
“The way you talk to her is not the way you talk to someone when you’re coming from a loving or supportive place,” one user tweeted.
Another commented, “Omg that is so wrong. Can you imagine how deeply that hurt?”
A third cut right to the, chase, tweeting:
“You are a d**k for criticizing Catelynn when she’s eating. Back off. You’re the one who needs therapy!”
And this is a guy who used to be a fan favorite!
Here's hoping Tyler can redeem himself before the season's out.
