On last week's episode of Teen Mom 2, fans were stunned to see Jenelle Evans eldest son, Jace, refer to his mother and stepfather as "pieces of sh-t."
It wasn't the 8-year-old's use of profanity that surprised viewers, but rather the fact that he was assessing his mother using the same language the public has been using for several years.
Not surprisingly, Jenelle took to Twitter to defend herself -- and to blame everyone else for her troubled relationship with her son.
As is so often the case, Jenelle's mother, Barbara Evans, found herself in the crosshairs.
And this time, Jenelle unloaded on Babs like never before:
Two Of a Kind
Jenelle and Barbara's fights are the stuff or reality TV legend. And Jenelle's eldest son, Jace, is often at the center of their conflicts.
The Real Victim
Now 8, Jace has been in Barbara's custody since before his first birthday. And these days, it seems he's fully aware of the fact that he dodged a bullet in not being raised by Jenelle.
A New Arrangement
Under the terms of an agreement reached last year, Barabara has retained custody of Jace in exchange for allowing Jenelle more visitation time, including weekend visits.
The Diss Heard 'Round the World
When Jace returned from one such weekend with Jenelle and her controversial husband, David Eason, he spoke his mind in a way that earned him praise from millions of TM2 viewers.
Telling It Like It Is
"Mommy and David are pieces of sh-t," Jace told Babs bluntly before spitting on the ground for emphasis.
Obviously, Jenelle took the opportunity to engage in some serious introspection and ask herself why her son might feel that way. Just kidding, she went on a totally bonkers Twitter rant ...
