When Nathan Griffith left to serve his month-long jail sentence earlier this year, Jenelle Evans was left alone, pregnant, and in charge of the couple's two dogs. And as we saw on this week's episode of Teen Mom 2, she took her anger out on the family pets, and the fans and online community were not too happy at her reaction. So now, both Jenelle and Nathan have taken to Twitter and MTV to defend Jenelle's abusive behavior.
Just this week, Jace and Kaiser's momma sat down with MTV cameras to come clean about what happened during filming and talk about what she's learned from the experience and backlash. Take a look:
Believe it or not, that's not all. As calm as Jenelle seemed in the video, Nathan's reaction to the situation was not as polite.
I swear it pisses me off so fucking bad seeing the love I cherish get trash so bad about my dogs.— N.J. Griffith (@GroundLevelUp) August 7, 2014
Not only was he upset at the reaction she was getting from fans and even PETA, but he attempted to justify what happened.
Yes it was unsat but she was fucking pregnant, hormonal and depress that I wasn't there.— N.J. Griffith (@GroundLevelUp) August 7, 2014
Sure, the entire situation may not have been easy. She was left alone while pregnant and her boyfriend was in jail. None of that sounds ideal. But to take it out on the puppies, and even in front of Jace, was the wrong thing to do. Period.
It seems like Jenelle understands what she did wrong. Nathan's somewhat incoherent reaction, on the other hand, tries to take all blame away from Jenelle. Let's be real, getting angry at people's responses is definitely not the right way to handle the frenzy. It's time to face it: she may have been under stress, but that's no excuse.
Let's hope they both learned from the situation and that Moogan and Jax have a much safer home.
Do you think Jenelle was sincere in her apology?
