Nessa Confronts Jenelle Eason For Slamming Boyfriend Colin Kaepernick [VIDEO]
Nessa Diab doesn’t play about her man or systemic oppression. The Hot 97/MTV personality has hosted the reunion specials for the reality show, “Teen Mom,” for several years now, but recently had an uncomfortable exchange with cast member Jenelle Eason. Jenelle publicly shamed Nike for signing a top-dollar deal with NFLer turned civil rights activist and Nessa’s boyfriend, Colin Kapernick.
On the latest “Teen Mom 2” reunion special, Nessa addressed Jenelle’s statements, explaining the reason behind her man’s protests while Jenelle denied the posts. This is how their banter went:
“Nessa Diab: You posted hateful comments on social media about my family- about my man, Colin Kapernick.
Jenelle Eason: I posted?
Nessa: You did. You knew that. You posted it, and we can pull it up.
Jenelle: I’ve never seen that. I honestly have no idea who your boyfriend is.
Nessa: No, he’s been on set. But gimme a second. Jenelle, this is an open, healthy conversation that I would like to have with you. Please understand something: my man uses his platform to peacefully protest systemic oppression in this country – specifically, police brutality against Black people. Men, women, and children are wrongfully, and the people doing this are not being held accountable. That is the issue. It has nothing to do with military men, military women- ok? Because they fought for our constitution to peacefully protest. All of us!”
As promised, receipts were shown of the following Facebook and Instagram messages posted by Janelle. Her posts were critical of Colin’s protests, with Jenelle even proclaiming she would stop wearing Nike over their support of him. Jenelle said:
“Lets choose the most disrespectful guy in the NFL for our promos…Lets choose the man that kneels at our flag…I will not be buying Nike anymore.”
“Donald J. Trump unemployment raite is so low, even Colin Kaepernick found a job! MERICA!”
Jenelle, then, stormed off of the stage claiming she didn’t know Colin Kapernick was Nessa’s longtime-boyfriend. However, she never recanted her statements.
