The network came out with an official statement, citing the racist tweets as the reason behind removing Taylor from the Teen Mom franchise. “MTV strongly condemns systemic racism and stands with those raising their voices against injustice,” the statement concluded.

However, Taylor took to social media later the same day to say that it was her choice to leave the show, not the network. Taylor Selfridge also alleged that the network’s rules only applied to certain people. Despite this, she acknowledged that she made mistakes.

“I have addressed my mistakes many times on the network and I would like to move on and continue to be the best version of myself. My past does not define who I am today and I hope you guys can see the change. Please respect my decision to provide a normal, healthy life for my family,” she said at the time.

Cheyenne Floyd was quick to show support for Taylor. However, fans have pointed out that Cheyenne has had her own set of troubles with tweets from her past. Many fans think she should have been fired in 2020 too.

After two years, it seems like Taylor Selfridge is getting a chance at her MTV career though. Her long-time boyfriend and baby daddy Cory Wharton revealed some of the details on Instagram.
