Jenelle Evans’ mother Barbara recently came under fire after an Instagram video of Barb ranting about Kailyn Lowry went viral. In the video, Barb can be heard threatening to kill Lowry, which caused Lowry to quit filming Teen Mom 2 until something is done about Evans’ mom.
On tonight’s episode of Teen Mom 2, Lowry sits down with a producer regarding her future on the show. After recapping the hateful rant, Lowry told her producer that she doesn’t want to be a part of a franchise that allows “that type of behavior.”
“I want no association with any person or network that works with that family,” she told In Touch after the video surfaced, adding that she “won’t be filming until further notice.”

Barbara Evans Can Be Heard Suggesting She, Jenelle & Brittany DeJesus “Get Lit & Go Kill Kail”
According to promos for tonight’s episode, the new episode will feature Lowry sitting down with her producer to discuss her future with the series after learning that Evans’ mom threatened to “kill” the mother of three.
In the rant, which was captured on a live Instagram video, Barbara was heard yelling, “Let’s get the boxed wine out,” before suggesting she, Jenelle, and Briana DeJesus’ sister Brittany DeJesus should “get lit and we’ll go kill Kail.” They laughed before Jenelle told her mom, “Oh, my god, we’re on live, Mom. You can’t say that s—t.”
The video prompted a call from one of the Teen Mom producers, who was seen telling Barbara off in another video Jenelle posted. “Everybody took it out of perspective,” Barbara said after ending the call with the producer. “That’s not really what I meant. I was just doing a joke.”
Lowry Doesn’t Feel Comfortable Filming Teen Mom 2 Until The Producers Do Something About Barb’s Comment
In February, after Barbara’s video went viral, Lowry spoke to Hollywood Life and revealed she was refusing to film additional scenes for Teen Mom 2 until “something is done” and confirmed that no one had offered an apology to her.
“I don’t think [the apology] would be sincere,” Lowry told Hollywood Life. “I don’t think it would come from a sincere place, I think it would just come because they were made to.” The reality television star also noted that she doesn’t “have a relationship with Jenelle at all,” and isn’t even on speaking terms with her castmate.
She also mentioned that despite the tension between them, she tried to reach out to make sure Evans was okay after hearing a 911 call in which Evans claimed to have been assaulted by her husband, David Eason, back in October. You can read more about Evans’ 911 call here.

As fans well know, Lowry and Evans have been feuding for several years. However, Lowry tried to send her castmate a “peace offering” a few months ago after she launched her new hair care line and Evans responded by lighting the products on fire. She then posted about it on Instagram.
“Kail Lowry, for years you’ve been super jealous and envious of all us girls on the show,” Evans captioned the video. “You try to make your way into the group, then turn into a mean ass person when it came down to me. You apologize on/off, claim I need to be apologizing sometimes, then talk shit constantly about me and my husband to the tabloids?! THEN you had the balls to send me a PEACE GATHERING GIFT?! Don’t send me gifts and then go talk shit AGAIN!!! Wow, you’re an idiot cuz this is what I do for gifts sent from fake ass bitches like you. Stay our of my life, go worry about your own.”
