TEEN Mom OG star Maci Bookout hit back at a troll who slammed her for taking a nap instead of caring for her kids.
The 30-year-old dealt with severe fatigue on Tuesday’s episode of the MTV show amid her painful PCOS battle.
During the latest episode of Teen Mom OG, Maci opened up about her health struggles.
PCOS- which stands for Polycystic ovary syndrome- is when the ovaries produce an abnormal amount of androgens, which are male sex hormones that women typically only have small amounts of.
Throughout the episode, the mother of three struggled to stay away and was seen sleeping in the middle of the day.
Shortly after the episode aired, one fan took to Twitter to call out Maci for sleeping instead of taking care of her kids.
The troll wrote: “It's literally your job to film, if I had laid down to rest instead of do my job I'd be fired. You literally sit there and blame everything on PCOS and it's really not that serious. I used to be on your side advocating for it but you've turned it into a whine fest.”
MACI CLAPS BACK
Maci clapped back at the critic by responding: “The fact that you said you have PCOS, then went on to say PCOS is ‘really not that serious’ kind of shows me that responding to your ignorant comments is a waste of my time. I wish you nothing but the best and hope your pcos journey continues to be as smooth as possible.”
She continued in a following tweet: “I have many jobs & yes filming is one of them. I complete all of them every day. Do u know what B roll (I mentioned it above) is? Pretty sure they filmed me in my bed resting. That’s completing a job. Also-curious to hear what I blame PCOS for, besides the actual symptoms?”
Maci shares 12-year-old son Bentley with ex Ryan Edwards, who has a strained relationship with their son.
She also is the mother to son Maverick, five, and daughter Jayde, six, with husband Taylor McKinney.
In addition to her painful struggle with PCOS, Maci has also been dealing with the aftermath of a shooting she witnessed at a gas station.
During the new episode, Maci appeared exhausted as she said in a voiceover: “Witnessing the shooting has given be debilitating insomnia.
"The lack of sleep and my PCOS makes it so much harder to regulate my blood sugar.”
Later in the episode, Taylor suggested Maci talk to a doctor about her PCOS.
The MTV star responded: “I’m tired of doctors.
"I feel defeated, so I don’t want to get my hopes up.”
Maci then FaceTimed her friends from a PCOS support group, where she discussed her health struggles.
After sharing she has been struggling with “severe fatigue,” she said: “I’m not gonna act like I put a lot of effort into finding a good diet.
"I realize that I’m not taking care of myself.”
Maci concluded: “I’ll be 30 this year and I want to start now so that I’m not, 10 years later, turning 40 and I haven’t done anything.”
