Getty "Teen Mom" star Catelynn Baltierra got fans talking with her new Instagram post.

“Teen Mom” fans had a mixed reaction to Catelynn Baltierra‘s new post via Instagram Stories on March 21. Baltierra reposted a TikTok — originally created by Erica Taylor — about moving on from unhealthy relationships.

“Nah, sis, we are good. I wish you the best, but we are not friends,” the quote says. “The way you made me the villain that I wasn’t kinda threw me off.”

“I get it. You needed someone to blame and project onto. But that’s not mine to carry and I finally realize that,” the message continues. “I wish you well. I hope you still eat, yeah. But my table has assigned seating now.”

Baltierra, 31, has been feuding with her younger sister, Sarah Haviland, since January. Haviland spoke out after Baltierra and their mother, April Brockmiller, appeared on season 2 of “Teen Mom: Family Reunion” together. During sit-downs with life coach Dr. Cheyenne Bryant — who hosted the MTV retreat — Baltierra confronted Brockmiller about her alcoholism and how it affected her growing up. Parts of their complicated relationship were shown during early episodes of “16 and Pregnant,” as well as “Teen Mom OG.”

Haviland claimed Baltierra only talked to Brockmiller when she needed help with her three children, 8-year-old Nova, 4-year-old Vaeda and 1-year-old Rya Rose.

“MTV shows what will give them viewers and clearly it works but you can’t judge someone from 14 years ago,” she wrote via TikTok. “The only time my sister talks to my mom is to babysit her kids which is often lol.”

“I don’t care what any one of you want to say I will ALWAYS stick up for my mother. MTV portrays her as s*** ALL the time for there own views,” Haviland wrote in a second TikTok video. “Take it how you want. If Cate wants to portray her so bad why does my mom always watching her kids, because clearly she’s not a s*** person like MTV portrays her to be.”

Haviland claimed Baltierra doesn’t have childhood trauma because she doesn’t have childhood trauma. “Catelynn had all this traumatizing PTSD and all this s**T growing up, OK? Well me and Catelynn are not that far apart. We’re four years apart, so if she has all this trauma from her childhood, wouldn’t I have that trauma?”she said in a since-deleted video, according to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup.

Baltierra posted a video of her own, where she addressed Haviland’s claims.

“The b**** does not know she has trauma because she has never worked on her s***,” the “Teen Mom” star said during a TikTok live, according to The Sun. “She tries to act like, you know, everything is fake.”

Baltierra appeared on the first season of “16 and Pregnant.” She and her husband, Tyler Baltierra, are the only couple in the franchise to place their baby, Carly, for adoption. They’re also the only couple to remain together.

Fans Were Divided Over Baltierra’s Post

Fans on Reddit had different reactions to Baltierra’s post. Some people applauded Baltierra for standing up for herself, while others accused her of being immature for sharing a vague post on social media to express herself — while not talking about anyone specific.

“For the record I support Cate in the bulls*** she’s facing right now from her family, but for the love of god just talk to her directly or don’t say anything at all,” read one popular comment.

“Being over the age of 30 and posting subliminals is so embarrassing, I did this shit a lot in my 20’s but you couldn’t pay me to do it now,” a second person agreed. 

But there were also plenty of people who supported Baltierra.

“Good for her. Im glad to see people finally having the strength to step away from toxic family members… It’s so hard to do…” one top response said.

“Big claps from me! Exactly how I feel about my sister,” another responded. “She’s consistently rooted for my failure. Made friends with people that hurt me. Good for you, Cate. ✂️ the toxicity out!”

Baltierra Is Cutting ‘Toxic’ People Out

Baltierra’s post on March 21 about being made into the “villain” was posted one day after her first cryptic message, where she talking about cutting “toxic” people out of her life.

“Let’s get out of this habit of telling people, ‘Well, that’s still your mom. That’s still your dad. That’s still your brother. That’s still your sister.’ Toxic is toxic. Whether it’s family or not,” the message said. 

“You are allowed to walk away from people who constantly hurt you. You are allowed to walk away from people who’ve abused you,” the message continues. “You are allowed to walk away from people who don’t love you You are allowed to create boundaries. You are allowed to choose your breaking point. Stop encouraging people to deal with toxicity and drama.”

Baltierra hinted that she was having problems with her family in November. She shared a post that claimed it feels lonely once you cut “toxic” people out of your life around the holidays.

“It’s hard AF.. the shit is NOT easy and the grief is so damn real,” she wrote as the caption.
