TEEN Mom fans have dragged Jenelle Evans over her “horrific treatment” of her daughter Ensley.
Critics slammed the ex-MTV personality after she shared a clip of her six-year-old daughter eating half-boiled eggs on her Instagram Stories.
In the video, Ensley sat at the table with her mother, eating toast and eggs.
Chewing to herself, Jenelle tried to feed her some eggs, which she picked up with her fork from the plate they shared; However, Ensley turned them down.
Ensley told her bluntly, shaking his head, “Don’t hire them [eggs in her mouth].”
She only stopped her former reality star mom’s fork so she could stuff her mouth with eggs herself, using her toast as a utensil.
The 31-year-old cheered on her daughter for loving a certain style of egg, captioning the video, “Ooh yummy runny eggs.”
The 16 & Pregnant alum captioned the story with a poll asking, “Does your child eat liquid eggs?”
Though the former Teen Mom 2 star intended the clip to be heartwarming, many fans took offense that she filtered her daughter’s video.
The filter used in the video changed Ensley’s eye color to crystal blue and lengthened her eyelashes.

Some fans thought the former TV personality, who added a filter to her children’s snaps and videos, was “wild.”
Fans went to a forum on Reddit to express the issue they found with Jenelle’s video and why it was problematic.
“Filter your own images, good. But beauty filters for your CHILDREN in EVERY picture/video is just so wild,” admitted one fan.
Someone else declared, “I’m going to die on this hill. It is NOT OK to use these types of filters on children.”
A third person ranted: “STOP FILTERING ON CHILDREN. It’s bloody creepy.”
A fourth wrote: “I hate to see kids using filters or being filtered.
Another fan commented, “It’s so creepy that she purposely uses the beauty filters on Ensley. She doesn’t do it with Kaiser or Jace, but every video of Ensley is filtered, as is every video of Jenelle.”
Another slammed: “Filtering kids is so weird to me I wish they would all stop this crap… Jenelle embarrassing her kid by posting this shit but adding a beauty filter? She’s so damn stupid!”
WHY THE FILTERS?
Earlier this month, critics tore up Jenelle’s controversial parenting decision to add a filter to another of Ensley’s videos.
In the picture shared to Jenelle’s Instagram Stories, the six-year-old sat on a bar stool in the kitchen, holding up a spiral notebook and pencil, the eraser touching her nose.
The little girl had written on the note: “Spaghetti, beer.”
Jenelle used a heavy filter on the image, giving Ensley the appearance of wearing a full face of makeup.
The mother-of-three captioned her post with a laughing emoji: “She asked what I wanted.”
Fans were horrified by the content as they took to Reddit to slam Jenelle for asking her little one to get her a beer and for covering her face in filters.
“Between filtering her daughter and the gross pairing of spaghetti and beer, she should go to jail immediately. She disgusts me so much,” one snapped.
“The real crime here is using a beauty filter on your child. Disgusting,” agreed a second.
A third fumed: “Ugh why is she filtering her daughter – in addition to her ‘spaghetti beer’ request.
“Jenelle’s lack of confidence will never cease to amaze me,” remarked a fourth.
“What a valuable early literacy activity, dear child, and terrible upbringing,” said a fifth.
“Ain’t it just totes-adorbs teaching their kids to reach for the lowest pole while showing them the fun side of badly drunk parenting,” one finale complained.
