TEEN Mom Amber Portwood slammed trolls for “talking about” her machete arrest in an emotional Instagram Live.
Amber, 30, went off on Instagram Live Saturday night while slamming mental health stigmas.
In 2019, the Teen Mom OG star was accused of trying to break down a locked door with a machete while her then-boyfriend Andrew and their son, James, who turns 3 in May, hid in a room during a fight.
Amber was arrested for domestic violence and received probation.
Andrew was granted primary custody of James, as Amber, who is also mom to daughter Leah, 12, has three unsupervised visits a week with their son.
While on the Instagram Live, viewers brought up the arrest.
Amber yelled: “Stop talking about the machete by the way! Stop! I’m not going there! Lord help me.”
The MTV star continued of her bipolar and depression battle: “You don’t know what it’s like to struggle every day.”
She then pleaded: “Stop bashing us – it’s been centuries and centuries and centuries.”
Amber continued to go off: “You’ll never learn. I’m telling the truth about mental health and mental illness. How is that embarrassing? People are embarrassed about their mental health and mental illnesses.
“You should be ashamed! You all should be so ashamed! We have been thrown away for centuries. We have been cut open, prodded, poked at for centuries. It’s not right! I’m done with it.”
Andrew was recently spotted on dating app Bumble by Amber’s followers.
Teen Mom OG fans shared what looks like the 36-year-old producer’s page amid the ex’s nasty custody battle over their son.

The ‘about me’ section reads: “UCLA graduate turned ad man at RPA. Making art, delicious things, and writing great song lyrics are me at the core. Sweet surprises, warm hearts and laughter welcome.”
Amber, meanwhile, has been firmly focused on a low-carb diet.
She was seen trying out green beans and Kielbasa – a staple of Polish cuisine.
