TYLER Baltierra has fought back against trolls and haters picking apart his rap song ahead of its official release.
The “Teen Mom” star began promoting the track back in August, to much opposition from audiences.
Tyler, 31, posted a screenshot of his Instagram comments section on his story.
The post featured a fan praising him for channeling his “pain” into “art,” along with the MTV star’s lengthy response.
He wrote, “I’m very good at hiding my pain and that’s one of the main reasons I’m able to do it…because I choose to honor it by creating a creative space for its existence.”
“I don’t judge it, criticize it, or minimize it… I accept it, take inspiration from it, and then transform it into something I can love and cherish.”
The father-of-four continued, “This is always turning for me and in the end, I’m just super grateful to have experienced that pain in the first place! So yes, a lot of my music is born out of pain…but I never was.” Just allow it to stay that way. I make sure to make sense of this pain by evolving it into something bigger and more meaningful to me than just painful agony.”
He concluded his post by saying, “That’s it [SIC] makes it so healing for me!”
Tyler added a GIF to the post of a man giving a thumbs up.
He also wrote, “Gratitude is the attitude for a more joyful mood.”

He wrote: “I’m not trying to be a profound musician here.
