Catelynn Lowell Slammed for Her Behavior on the Way to Ireland

Catelynn LowellIn case you haven't heard, Teen Mom's most adorable couple Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are slated to speak at the Love Life Festival in Dublin, Ireland. The two are outspoken advocates of adoption after giving up their birth daughter Carly to wonderful parents because they knew they wouldn't be able to care for her adequately.

These two lovebirds have been Teen Mom favs for awhile, mostly because they seem ridiculously in love and committed to one another, and not afraid of showing it. And now they're headed to Dublin to share their story accross the pond, and if Catelynn's Instagram feed is any indication, they are traveling in style


The super sweet and (appropriately) saucy birth mom posted a picture on the social media site of lowball glass filled with something, and captioned it, "Starting this lonnngggg day of travel right! #whiskey #fireball #ireland"

OK, now we could argue over whether Fireball is actually Irish (it's not), but it is whiskey, and that just screams Ireland. And traveling these days sucks, so bottoms up to Catelynn for indulging a little to take the edge off.

Of course she got some nasty backlash for posting the photo, because (gasp!) she should never take a sip of alcohol ever because she gave birth when she was a teenager!!

Just to give you an example, one of the awful comments was, "She also stated the START of her traveling so that could mean she's at a bar as usual before she's even made it to the airport. As I know you have to fly but knowing them two they prolly do drink and drive."

Knowing "them two"? Really, random Internet commenter? The closest Catelynn has gotten to a DUI is cast mate Jenelle Evans jokingly warning her about not getting one. I'm sure she's fine enjoying a drink on mass transit.

The girls of Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 have all hit their 21st (and beyond) birthdays, so who cares as long as they're indulging responsibly?

There are times it's perfectly acceptable for reasonable adults to take a swig, and traveling across the globe to celebrate the difficult decisions you've made (like giving your child a chance at a wonderful life) seems like a perfect time to raise a glass.

Safe travels Catelynn and Tyler! We're looking forward to more news of your trip.

Do you think it was appropriate for Catelynn to take a drink before she embarked on her trip?
