TEEN Mom 2 fans are slamming Chelsea Houska and her husband, Cole DeBoer, for “giving in” and buying their screaming children candy to stop their wild temper tantrum.
On this week’s episode of Teen Mom 2, Chelsea, 29, and Cole’s son Watson, 3, asked for a “treat” during a car ride with his sister Layne, 2, next to him.
Chelsea responded to her son: “Well I’m not getting any treats bud.”
He said back: “Mom please.”
When Cole, 31, told his son that he had food in the car, Watson fired back, “No!”
He then began to throw a tamper tantrum.
Though Cole told his screaming son they would stop “somewhere special” after their errand, Chelsea told her husband, “We might as well just stop.”
She then told her son: “We’re going somewhere right now to get something for you guys.”
When Cole told his son he would get a “sucker” and a “bag of Oreos,” Watson replied, “Not a bag of Oreos! I want something special.”
Cole returned with the treats and said: “Dang you kids man, lately. Maybe it’s us just giving in but… I don’t care. I’ll give in!”
Chelsea added: “I don’t give a frig!”
Fans turned to social media after the scene aired to slam Chelsea and Cole for giving into their crying children.
One viewer tweeted: “WOAH!!!!! Chelsea and Cole giving right in to that tantrum!!! Woahhhh! We see who runs the house here. #TeenMom2.”
A second said: “Ok! Now I’m muting the TV from Chelsea segment! These spoiled kids #TeenMom2.”
A third commented: “Chelsea and Cole are the type of parents who never say no to their kids and give them whatever they want to avoid meltdowns #TeenMom2.”
Another wrote: “Watching yesterday’s episode of #TeenMom2. Chelsea’s son just throws a fit because he wants something from the store so Cole gives it to him…”
A fifth posted on Twitter: “Sorry, but my kid wouldn’t get anything after acting like that!!! Chelsea you are raising brats!”
Also on the episode, Chelsea, who is expecting her fourth child in February, refused to have her children, including Aubree, 10, with ex-boyfriend Adam Lind, tested for Covid three times a week.
She told producers she would think about the Covid guideline and get back to them on if she wants to continue filming.
This isn’t the first time Chelsea has come under fire for by viewers.
Earlier this month, fans ripped her for buying a seemingly “unsafe” $2,200 leather bassinet for her fourth child.
One user on Reddit fired: “Shame on the company that makes this baby death trap.”
A second speculated: “Man, I really hope those buttons are secure. That’s a choking hazard just waiting to happen.”
A third fumed: “This ain’t it. That child is not gonna be able to BREATHE. Sometimes aesthetic needs to take a back seat.”
In a preview for next week’s episode, Chelsea revealed her time filming for the MTV series may be coming to an end.
In November, Chelsea announced she is leaving Teen Mom 2 after 10 seasons.
She captioned a photo alongside her family: “MTV’s Teen Mom 2 has been a big part of my life for almost 11 years. After much thought and discussion with my family and friends, Cole and I have decided that this season will be our last.
“We are forever thankful to MTV and our crew, who are like family to us. We’re parting on the best of terms and will stay in touch long after this. We’re proud to have been able to share our story and are so grateful to the fans who have followed our journey from the beginning.
She added that the “next chapter” of their life will be to “focus on developing our brand and taking things to the next level with new endeavors and expanding family businesses.”
The MTV star ended the statement with: “Please tune into our last moments on the show and continue to follow along our journey on social media. We are so excited for this next phase of our lives and hope you all will be a part of it in some way!”
Chelsea and Cole have been updating fans on their home-building and design journey for their new South Dakota farmhouse.
But Chelsea is receiving backlash there as well, as fans have called her design choices for her farmhouse “ugly.”
