Teen Mom Kailyn Lowry branded 'racist' for seemingly calling baby daddy Chris Lopez a 'cockroach' in new post

KAILYN Lowry has been branded "racist" for appearing to compare her baby daddy Chris Lopez to a "cockroach".

The Teen Mom 2 star, 29, shared a photo of the insect on the floor of the AirBnb she stayed at in the Dominican Republic with her four sons.

A fan wanted to know during an Instagram Q&A session on Sunday: "What happened at the AirBnb?"

Kailyn shared the photo of the cockroach and wrote: "It seemed as though one of my baby's fathers showed up so we got up outta there."

She appears to be talking about Chris – who is the father of her sons Lux, 3, and Creed, 11, as she is on friendly terms with Jo Rivera – Isaac's dad – and Javi Marroquin – Lincoln's dad.

After a Teen Mom fan account drew Kailyn's post to the attention of viewers, critics accused her of using a "racial slur".

One wrote: "This is racist af and degrading!"

Another posted, "I’m from the South and was raised that it is a racial slur," while a third added: "I'm from the West Coast and that is racist here."

This was backed up by another user, who raged: "It is racist. Wtf?!"

Kailyn and Chris have had a strained relationship for months and regularly call each other out on social media.

Most recently, the exes were involved in a shouting match on an episode of Teen Mom 2, which had Kailyn yelling at Chris, and the father-of-two swearing at MTV producers.

Last September, Kailyn was arrested after "punching Chris several times with a closed fist" after he cut their son Lux's hair without her permission.

This is not the first time Kailyn has been accused of being racist.


Last month, her Teen Mom costar Briana DeJesus claimed she's never been invited on Kailyn's podcast because she's "not white".

Briana claimed Kailyn was willing to build bridges with Jenelle Evans and invited the former reality star on her podcasts.

The MTV star – who is of Puerto Rican descent – said she has never been asked on and said it could be because she's "non-Caucasian".

"While I really hope this isn't the case, it's not lost on me that she was willing to talk to Jenelle – who is white – yet won't move on with me when, up until recently, I was the only non-Caucasian cast member," she told Celeb Buzz.

"There have been rumblings and reports regarding past racist tweets Kailyn interacted with, and again, while I'm hoping the color of my skin isn't a factor here it's certainly not lost on me that this point exists."


Earlier this year, Reddit users uncovered past controversial posts that Kailyn had liked on Twitter.

One tweet that she liked from 2016 read: "I just want white girls to date me for a month out of guilt for Black History Month #slavereparations."

She also posted saying, "I just want to say that every life matters" before calling a critic "ignorant" when they claimed she was behaving like a "privileged white girl".

Kailyn once scolded ex Jo Rivera regarding their son Issac, saying, "I think you forget about the fact that he’s half white and he’s half Hispanic."

"I feel like you dress him in the stereotypical way and I don’t like it… you dress him like a thug.”

Kailyn said earlier this year that she has been "canceled" many times over her past comments – which she admitted were "ignorant" and said she's "willing to apologize and learn from".

Briana and Kailyn have been feuding for weeks, with Briana accusing her of trying to hide her arrest for "punching" her ex Chris Lopez from MTV.

"Kail doesn't want to film about breaking and entering into Chris momma house and beating him for cutting his child's hair," she said.

Kailyn hit back earlier this month by suing the reality star for defamation.
