RYAN Edwards has been criticized online for appearing to joke about his arrests and near-fatal overdose.
The former Teen Mom star shared a poorly received meme and shoutout to the new girlfriend he met in rehab.
Ryan was arrested earlier this year for possession of a controlled substance and driving under the influence after the Teen Mom OG alum was found passed out in the driver’s seat of his truck.
After he was released from prison nine months early, he went to a rehab clinic.
Less than a month into his rehab, the 35-year-old was ordered to enter the Oasis Halfway House.
There he met single mother Amanda Conner, who herself has a long history of drug-related arrests.
Last week, Mackenzie’s ex shared the meme in an Instagram story, drawing attention to his current situation.
“Your girlfriend has your location to see if you are cheating. My girlfriend has it so she knows which hospital or prison to pick me up from,” he shared.
But Teen Mom viewers all in one Online chat room didn’t laugh.
“He’s a fucking idiot!!” one person hit. “It doesn’t get any stupider than this quack!!!!”

Another exploded: “So hilarious Ryan! You should tell the judge.”
While a third lamented: “As long as they continue to ‘excuse’ him so he doesn’t face the consequences of his own actions in prison, things will only get worse.”
Ryan’s rocky road
Ryan has been in and out of prison since the beginning of the year on drug abuse, harassment and other charges.
He was arrested at his workplace on February 10, 2023 for harassment, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance and violating the protective order.
He was subsequently arrested on March 1 on charges of aggravated stalking and violating a protective order after authorities issued two warrants for his arrest on February 23.
Ryan pleaded guilty to harassment charges at a court hearing. The Reality Summary of Ashley reported.
The former TV personality was ordered to complete rehabilitation treatment and have no contact with the victim.
He was sentenced to a suspended sentence of 11 months and 29 days.
Charges of possession of drug paraphernalia, stalking and violating an order of protection were dismissed.
He was sentenced to rehab for his possession of a controlled substance, with the option of having the sentence reduced after six months for good behavior.
