Tyler Baltierra Fat Shames Caitlyn & It's So Not Cool

Normally, watching Tyler and Catelynn Baltierra's relationship play out on screen make for some of the most adorable moments Teen Mom ever gives us. But is that all about to change? In a new Teen Mom OG promo, Tyler fat shames Catelynn, and we're really disappointed in his comments.


If you've been watching the show, you already know that Catelynn's battle with her weight has been a longtime struggle for her -- and that she's also been struggling with depression on top of it. But it's always seemed like Tyler supported her regardless of her weight -- 'til now.

In the clip, Catelynn and Tyler are at the table eating together (with baby Nova), and after Catelynn says she's thinking about joining Weight Watchers again, Tyler points out how big that quesadilla she's eating is. And then, he says it: "Obviously, I don't want no heifer for a wife." 

Ugh, Tyler, we're cringing. And even though Catelynn laughs at his comment, we're not convinced she actually thinks it's funny.

And wait -- it gets worse. One of the crew members calls Tyler out for being a little harsh on Cate, so he just repeats his "heifer" line. Tyler! That's not okay! 

Everyone in the room is laughing, and Tyler's probably joking. And he does stop to tell Catelynn that he loves her no matter what. But it's probably not the best thing he could have said, especially on national television. 

Our message to Tyler: Your wife has been through a lot lately! Maybe don't bring up heifers and just remind her how much you love her instead. K? K.
