In the season finale of ‘Teen Mom 2’ Kailyn was called out for making some comments that came off a little bit… well, racist. Jo shared text messages that Kailyn had sent him telling him that Isaac is “half white” and “little white boys don’t dress like that,” in reference to a new haircut Jo had gotten Isaac and the way Jo dresses him during visitation.
Kail had been dreading this episode because she claims the comments came out the wrong way. She says she is clearly not racist considering the fact that she has two bi-racial children. She just wants for them to embrace both their cultures.
In a new exclusive by The Ashley, Kailyn’s friend reveals that the fight in question had actually occurred a month prior to the filming of that episode. In fact she claims that MTV pressured Jo into talking about the racial texts on camera for the drama. Apparently they had already resolved the disagreement which is why Kailyn got so mad that he brought it up and stormed off.
Despite feeling like she was set up Kail understands that her words were offensive to many and she tells MTV, “I’m deeply sorry for making those comments. They were not representative of who I am. Diversity is something I value, especially in my own family.”
