JENELLE Evans is being slammed for not only ditching her kids for a pair of vacations with her husband, but now also defending her decision.
The former Teen Mom shared a sarcastic video on TikTok, seemingly trying to justify being an absentee mom.
In the video, the mother of three poses her own answer to the statement: “If you’re a parent you can’t go on vacation without your kids.”
The 30-year-old acts like she is pondering the statement initially, before simulating a broken heart using her hands, likely as a reference to separating from her brood.
But then she starts dancing and smiling – enjoying the time away.
Jenelle captioned the video: “A happy mom is the best mom.”
However, in an online chat room, fans came down hard.
One fan called her “selfish”, adding: “She gets Jace every other weekend and 2 months straight in the summer. Why is it necessary for two unemployed adults to take vacations during that time? That’s not a lot of time to spend with your child.”
Another follower echoed: “Jenelle, your entire life is spent on a vacation without your children. You don’t play with them, you don’t nurture them and you damned sure don’t love them.”
And still one person commented: “She doesn’t even have a clue how to parent her kids because all she cares about is getting attention from random people on the internet.”
NO KIDDING AROUND
Jenelle’s video comes after the Teen Mom 2 alum faced backlash for jet-setting on yet another vacation without her children, after taking a trip to the Caribbean island of St. Thomas just weeks prior.
The reality star took to her TikTok profile last month to share a video compilation of her most recent romantic getaway with husband David Eason, 33.
Jenelle filmed shots of her beautiful beach house vacation destination before showing off her outfit of a “beach hoodie and gym shorts.”
“You like my new beach house,” she asked, pointing towards her temporary stay, before adding: “Just kidding it’s not mine.”
But fans were quick to notice that their children were not along for the ride.
“I take my dog more places than she takes her kids,” one joked.
“Why aren’t they taking their kids to create some memories with them and have fun experiences away from the swamp? Oh yeah, they’re s**t parents and don’t give a f**k about those kids having fun,” a second ranted.
A third argued: “Tbh the kids are better off without them. Remember that disastrous ‘cabin trip’ where they screamed at the kids the whole time?”
“Their kids are inconveniences to them and I’m sure they would be kid-free every day if they could,” a fourth guessed.
“I wonder who’s watching the kids,” another expressed, while a final remarked: “Classic JanL ‘kids are too hard- leave me alone’ Evans, who believes she deserves her kids as if they are a prize.”
Jenelle and her husband only recently returned from a long vacation to the Caribbean, once again without their children.
During the trip, fans “cringed” as the couple shared NSFW footage from their getaway.
