ASHLEY Jones’ pastor mom Tea has been slammed for swearing at the reality star while congratulating her on graduating.
Teen Mom 2 star Ashley, 24, graduated from community college with an associate of science degree.
And while praising her daughter in the latest Teen Mom episode, Tea called Ashley “bihhh” – which is a variant of the swear word “b***h”.
Viewers took offence at Tea’s choice of word and branded her “trashy”.
“Not what I call my daughter,” one raged on social media, while another added: “They are all still trash.”
A third wrote: “She’s not one of the girls! So ridiculous and isn’t she a pastor or something?”
Tea defended herself following the backlash, insisting she has no problem using the word “bihhh” in regards to her daughter.
“Congratulations Ashley!! You did it bihhhhhh!! I said what I said,” the MTV star wrote on Instagram alongside a slew of laughing face emojis
She added: “Let’s be clear, I said what I said and next time she achieve a big goal…. I’m gone cuss again.
“We proud of you. CONGRATULATIONS Bihhhhhhh. 22.214.171.124.1 trolls enter chat ‘Ain’t she a pastor’.

“Again , let’s be clear… I left ministry some years ago. Keep up.”
While Ashley should have been the center of attention during her college graduation party, the night descended into chaos when her baby daddy Bar Smith “fired a gun”.
Following a fun night of festivities, the Teen Mom 2 finale concluded with an explosive ending when the party got out of hand and the 24-year-old fired off his gun.
Cameras were not present to film the situation, though text onscreen explained: “The MTV crew left the party at 9pm. Later that night, police received a call that gun shots were fired. No injuries were reported.
“Bar was arrested for willful discharge of a firearm in a negligent matter.”
BAR BEHIND BARS
Earlier in the episode, Bar revealed to Ashley that he had to spend 15 days in county jail following his previous DUI arrest.
While Ashley wasn’t happy about the situation, she said during a confessional that she wouldn’t let Bar’s legal drama stop her from celebrating her accomplishment.
The Sun exclusively reported that Bar was arrested and taken into custody in May, though it was not known the incident took place at Ashley’s party.
According to a police report, Bar was arrested for “willful discharge of firearm in negligent manner” at 9:35 AM on May 16.
He was held at Merced County Sheriff’s Main Jail, while the MTV star’s bond was set at $25,000.
The Sun confirmed his arrest, while Bar was already released from jail the following day.
Ashley and Bar share three-year-old daughter Holly together.
Back in April, Ashley revealed she was replacing Chelsea Houska on Teen Mom 2 for the current season.
