Briana DeJesus has a new man in her life.

We don’t know a whole lot about him, but she introduced him to her Instagram followers with a pic earlier this week.

And that’s when all hell broke loose.

You see, Briana’s new man is a little older than her previous boyfriends.

And by that we mean he looks like he could entertain her with accounts of what kind of food they served on the Titanic.

We kid! Briana’s new guy probably isn’t old at all — he’s probably middle-aged, or maybe even younger!

But she’s 28, and she stars on a show with a fan base that skews young.

So when Bri revealed her new dude’s face on her Instagram Stories over the weekend, Instagram users had a field day with the apparent age difference between the partners.

Several Teen Mom 2 fan sites reposted a screenshot of Bri and her new man, and the jokes started flying almost immediately.

“That is an elderly man,” one person commented, according to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup.

“Probably heading to that Early Bird dinner special,” another remarked.

“What in the George Foreman grill?” a third asked.

Other comments included:

“Who grandpappy is this?”

“Wayne Brady, is that you?”

“Granddad, grab your walker and ruuun!”

You get the idea.

Most of the jokes had to do with the age of Briana’s as-yet-unnamed new man.

But some folks chose to switch things up by focusing on Bri’s ongoing obsession with (possibly former) castmate Kailyn Lowry.

“Maybe it’s Kail’s new man’s daddy, you know she has to stay connected to Kail somehow,” one person wrote.

The commenter was likely referencing the fact that Briana once dated Kail’s ex-husband, Javi Marroquin.

But the joke works on multiple levels:

Bri and Kail have both been done with Javi for several years, but their feud shows no signs of letting up.

Earlier this year, Lowry unsuccessfully tried to sue DeJesus for defamation.

When the case was thrown out of court, Briana didn’t just quietly go about her business.

No, she spent weeks gloating about her victory and even threw an anti-Kail party, inviting several other stars from the Teen Mom franchise to help her boast.

It makes sense that Bri was happy to emerge victorious, but many were left with the opinion that she went way too far in her celebrations.

Briana has responded to the jokes about her new dude, but she still hasn’t revealed his name or how old he is.

Instead, she reminded fans that her baby daddy Luis is more than 10 years older than her.

“Shaderoom comments had me on the floor,” she wrote.

“I literally spit my juice out reading these ‘Teen Mom’ comments. Y’all are hilarious ASF. We need to see live tweets when the new ‘Teen Mom’ show comes out. I am dead.”

“LMAO Luis is pushing 40,” Bri continued. “But it’s all fun and games. I enjoyed the laugh.”

It sounded like she was enjoying the jokes about her new boyfriend, but Bri has since deleted all of her posts from Instagram.

We’re not saying for sure that she got upset over the comments about her relationship.

But Bri’s temper is the stuff of legend, and she generally can’t take it quite as well as she dishes it out.
