‘Teen Mom’ Maci Bookout Called ‘Distasteful’


Teen Mom OG‘ fans are taking aim at MTV reality star Maci Bookout following as a misleading post on Bookout’s social media concerning the tragic death of Gabby Petito.

Bookout is causing quite the uproar with her followers. Fans are labeling the 30-year-old’s post clickbait, calling her ‘distasteful’ according to In Touch. At this time Maci, nor her reps, have responded to requests for comment on the post. It is also unknown whether Bookout or her social media team is responsible for the post.

The Gabby Petito post on Wednesday, September 22, reads “#GabbyPetito Boyfriend #BrianLaundrie FOUND!?!” with a “Breaking News” hashtag.  Teen Mom fans are outraged over the misleading information and call Maci out, claiming that she is insensitive and looking to profit from the horrific tragedy.

Teen Mom Fans Express Out Rage Over Maci Bookout Instagram Post


This is not the first time Bookout is under fire for sharing clickbaity posts. Over the years, Maci has dealt with angry fans for her misleading posts that seemingly reveal marriage issues,  false pregnancy posts, and information about her fellow Teen Mom stars.

Fans who click on the false headline posts are quickly sent to another site revealing advertisements or promotional pages. One person previously wrote: “So you’re not getting a divorce? One day a divorce post the next a happy marriage post. Is it really worth getting ‘paid’ by those stupid click baits?”

Another Teen Mom fan claims: “U play a lot of games with your marriage.”

Maci Bookout is not the first TM franchise star that is guilty of clickbaity posts. MTV reality stars, including Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood, Jenelle Evans, and Catelyn Lowell are all guilty of similar postings.

Fans claim it is one thing to post a baited headline with misleading information about yourself. But when using a national news headline about such a tragedy as Gabby Petito’s death to profit, fans claim it is disrespectful and sickening.

Will Maci Lose Fans?


“So, Maci can’t make a post to bring awareness about #GabbyPetito but she can make clickbait and profit off of this tragedy,” one fan wrote in their caption, stating that a “family is grieving and the world is watching.” 

Reality television stars know going into the game that every aspect of their lives is open for the world to see. However, with fame, money and attention come the downfalls of public scrutiny.

It is up to them to make the decision on how they want fans to view them. Maci Bookout has always been considered one of the Teen Mom fan favorites.

At least until now. Maci Bookout’s fans will continue dragging the reality star. The insults will most likely continue on until Maci steps forward with an apology and an explanation. Until then, it is going to be a rough and rocky road.
