The former ‘Teen Mom’ star and motivational speaker was snapped in a photo with some friends chugging what appears to be Bud Light in 40-ounce bottles. Since Maci is a motivational speaker and role model, do you think the pic is irresponsible?
Maci Bookout, 21, has made the most of her fame from the MTV series Teen Mom. After the show wrapped in August, she has been working as a motivational speaker at colleges to detail her struggles as a teen mom. She also hosted some of the Teen Mom 2 after shows, and is studying journalism at Chattanooga State Community College.
But her position as a role model may have been compromised when she was snapped in a controversial pic allegedly chugging beer with some friends!
Fans Speak Out On Maci Bookout’s Twitpic
Even though Maci is legally allowed to drink — and Bud Light in a 40-ounce bottle is a fine choice — some fans are up in arms that the ambitious mom to Bentley, 4, is preaching about being responsible and working hard while being featured in party photos that are posted to the Internet.
“STRUGGLING teen mom? lmao. Naw dumb b***h ain’t struggling and shes not a ‘teen’ anymore. Now all she does is party and no matter what Bentley will be fine since Maci and Ryan come from good families,” Craig Delgado wrote on Sulia.
“I just think it’s kinda sad that she can do whatever she wants but when Jenelle [Evans] does ANYTHING, every one chews her a** about it!” another user Taylor McGuire wrote.
But others were sympathetic to the Teen Mom alum, and don’t think it’s a huge deal.
“She’s a successful 21 year old mother, Who cares if she drinks? The same photographs can be found of not only ever other non-famous 21 year old, but also of 50%+ of famous people 21 and over. Nothing wrong with this!” Daynielle Jessica wrote on Sulia. Tierra Collier added “she is old enough to drink. i still respect her as a mother.”
It’s not that we think Maci shouldn’t party and have a good time, she just maybe should make sure the pics don’t make it online — especially when she has such a successful public speaking career!
What do YOU think of the photo HollyMoms? Do you think Maci should have kept the pics private, or is it really not a big deal? Let us know in the comments below!
