It was either Shakespeare or Kanye West who said, "Screams from the haters have got a nice ring to it."
But whoever authored those words of wisdom, it seems Jenelle Evans firmly disagrees.
When things get a little too real for Jenelle, she simply turns tail and runs.
These days, Evans' only interactions with the public take place on social media -- which means that's where she does the most of her retreating.
Sometimes it's because Jenelle said something stupid.
Other times it's because fans are simply concerned by what they saw in one of her photos.
Take Jenelle's latest Insta-controversy for example:
The Offending Pic
Jenelle posted this photo of David Eason and daughter Ensley. And fans were not happy with what they saw.
What's the Issue?
As you can see, it's just a photo of Ensley posing with her father. Jenelle posts this sort of thing all the time without issue.
And the only thing that David enjoys posing with more than his guns is his freakin' chickens, so fans are certainly accustomed to that.
So why are fans so critical of this pic in particular? Well, for starters David doesn't have the greatest history with animals, particularly when they're around Ensley.
We probably don't need to tell you that Eason recently shot and killed the family's French bulldog. He justified his actions by claiming that the dog had gotten too close to Ensley.
Ensley Up Close
He posted this photo as evidence of Nugget's vicious attack. Needless to say, fans remained unconvinced.
Obviously, chickens are less likely to send David flying into a rage, but as many fans have pointed out ... you never know.
A Vicious Beast ... and a Dog
Many fans found it in poor taste to have David pose with animals and Ensley so soon after the controversy that caused the Easons to lose custody of their kids.
The Queen of Mean
Normally, this is where Jenelle would clap back and tell all the haters where to stuff it.
A New Chapter?
This time, however, she just quietly disabled comments on the post but did not delete the pic.
It could be that Jenelle's lawyers advised her to lay off the online trash talk. Or maybe she just got fed up with living her life in a constant state of seething rage.
Let's Be Honest
It's probably the first option, of course, as insiders say losing custody of her kids served as a real wakeup call to Jenelle.
But What Kind of Change?
Was it enough to make her get her act together in any meaningful way? Probably not. But maybe she'll tone down the social media feuds a bit.
Unfortunately, Evans posted the pic on other platforms like Twitter -- where the public is still free to comment on this controversial pic.
Not Holding Back
Animal abuse is not something people quickly forgets about. We're guessing David will never be able to live that one down.
Evans has frequently come under fire for her alleged neglect of Ensley and her other children. Some fans see this pic as further evidence.
Concern For Kai
Other followers focused on the background, which they claim provides further evidence that Jenelle is an unfit mother.
Biting Their Tongues
Amazingly, neither Jenelle nor David has gone on a full-blown tirade yet, but you know it's coming.
But on the plus side, social media is Evans' only means of making a living these days, so every time she loses it on a fan, she makes herself that much less attractive to sponsors!
