The Teen Mom OG cast member used the n-word while describing the size of a crowd in a video he posted to his Snapchat story and was quickly called out by enraged fans.
Fans tweeted out the video, asking when his "trifling a--" would respond to people calling him out for his unacceptable language.
This “trifling ass” does have some explaining to do. I am a complete inconsiderate prick who made a mistake while attempting to take a mental break after dealing with everything. I deserve any hate you all give me, so lay it on me— Tyler Baltierra (@TylerBaltierra) November 19, 2017
Baltierra quickly responded, apologizing for his use of the word while saying he was trying to take a "mental break" after his wife Catelynn entered treatment after having suicidal thoughts this weekend.
"This 'trifling a--' does have some explaining to do," he tweeted. "I am a complete inconsiderate prick who made a mistake while attempting to take a mental break after dealing with everything. I deserve any hate you all give me, so lay it on me."
Fans weren't having the apology. Many were upset, thinking the MTV cast member was blaming his inappropriate behavior on his wife's recent issues.
I love how you play the victim. Mental exhaustion doesn’t put racial slurs in one’s vocabulary, last I checked.— The Grace Report (@GraceReport) November 19, 2017
You're better off not responding and try to pull the victim card. You'd think you would know better.— cheeky*kant (@youwutm888) November 19, 2017
Oh stop with the victim game. Go be a grown ass man and take care of your kid, and think of something nice to do for Catelynn when she gets back— Snarky McTits (@delujenelle) November 19, 2017
