“Teen Mom 2’s” Jenelle Eason Says She Doesn’t Know Who Colin Kaepernick Is After Being Confronted By Nessa Diab [VIDEO]
Jenelle Eason of MTV’s “Teen Mom 2” says she didn’t make the anti-Colin Kaepernick comments posted to her social media accounts. Longtime “Teen Mom 2” reunion host/Colin’s girlfriend, Nessa Diab, confronted Jenelle on her Facebook and Instagram posts slamming Colin’s NFL protests. In one of the posts, she claims she would boycott Nike for their support of Colin.
In response to Nessa, Jenelle walked off the stage in the middle of taping.
The 27-year-old gave Dr. Drew Pinksy several conflicting explanations for not responding to Nessa Diab’s claims, stating she would have preferred to be confronted privately:
“She couldn’t wait ’til the end, ’til we were done? Like, I’ve been having so many medical issues this whole trip. The first thing that happens, I get out on stage, I get [expletive] attacked!”
She, later, maintained that she doesn’t know who Colin Kaepernick is, blaming the posts on her husband, David Eason‘s, opinions of him.
“Didn’t he kneel at the football game or something? Well, that’s what David didn’t like. David didn’t. I was gonna say, I didn’t know anything. I still don’t know anything about him.”
Jenelle returned to the couch, explaining to Nessa that she wasn’t responsible for the posts on her page. She said:
“The only reason I came back out here was to tell you that it wasn’t me. I have people writing this on my account for me, for ads, for those pictures.”
Nessa didn’t buy Jenelle’s explanation. She responded:
“At the end of the day, it’s still your account. So whether it was you or somebody else, I can only hold you accountable for it because it came from you.”
“You do have a big platform, and there was so much information that wasn’t true on there. That was so hurtful to me, to my family, to so many people, because that was a false narrative. Even if somebody else posted it, we should all be accountable.”
