Former Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans denied saying the N-word in a new bikini-clad TikTok video that she posted to the platform on Saturday. The social media influencer posted a clip that showed her dancing to “Tap In” by Saweetie.
Evans, 28, captioned the video, “Mmmm… tap tap tap in.” The video, viewed more than 1.9 million times, garnered hundreds of comments.
The top response is from a fan that defended Evans. “I put it on slow mode. She definitely did NOT say it…” Netizen Julie Workman wrote. Evans also defended herself. “I wouldn’t have uploaded it if I did,” the former Teen Mom 2 star said.
When another person asked, “UMMMMMM did she really just mouth that?” Evans answered, “I didn’t .. I took a breath actually.”
Evans has become known for her TikTok videos, where she likes to dance in her backyard while often while wearing a bikini.
Evans and her husband are no stranger to controversy. David Eason has often been accused of racism and was fired by MTV after he made homophobic and transphobic comments on Twitter. The couple has a tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship, where they’ve broken up and reconnected various times since they were married in 2017.
Evans Says She’s a Victim of Online Bullying
As noted by Pop Culture, Evans shared various messages on Saturday, ranging from child trafficking, Jeffrey Epstein, and another that claimed the coronavirus pandemic was a hoax.
“I wish [Jack Dorsey] would see how bad the hate against me on [Twitter] and how horrible it’s getting. I want this to be a fun & safe place to talk but I’m not comfortable talking on this app,” Evans wrote.
She also denied allegations that her husband abused her children. “My husband HAS NEVER laid hands on any of my children, exactly why every FALSE case about me has been dismissed. YELL my allegations and WHISPER my success. My children are doing amazing and that’s FACTS for ya,” she wrote.
Evans was fired from Teen Mom 2 in April 2019 after Eason allegedly killed their dog, Nugget.
“MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with him since,” an MTV spokesperson told People at the time. “Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019, and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season.”
Evans Slams Netizens Who Claim Her Daughter Has ‘Speech Problems’
Evans snapped on fans who accused her youngest, 3-year-old daughter Ensley, of having a speech problem, The Blast reported. Some claimed they haven’t seen the child speak and are worried about her development.
“Whoever made up the BS rumor that my daughter has speech problems, you have no f***ing idea how my daughter speaks,” she wrote.
“We haven’t been on TV for more than a year so where did you hear her talk!?” Evans continued. “She speaks perfectly fine and her vocabulary is better than Kaiser’s. STOP SPREADING FALSE INFORMATION.”
