Teen Mom latest updates- Mackenzie McKee claims MTV 'bullied' her into waiting to apologize for racial slur

TEEN Mom Mackenzie McKee is claiming that MTV actually "bullied" her into waiting to apologize for a racial slur.

The reality star was previously slammed as "racist" after she called Vice President Kamala Harris as a "colored" woman.

Mackenzie, 26, ripped the network that employs her as she took to Twitter with quite the claim: "I’m sorry for how I am about to be portrayed on this Tuesday’s episode. It does fit the agenda but it does not fit my heart and who I am.

"For 3 weeks I was bullied into not being able to say a true apology from my heart on my platform (which was the right thing to do).

"Because they wanted to control how it was portrayed. I should have not cared about my spot on the show and cared about doing what was truly right and that was to come on here and talk about who wrong and ignorant. I was with a word mix up. Words hurt, and I’m sorry and growing…"

    CHEY CUT OFF

    TEEN Mom Mackenzie McKee claimed co-star Cheyenne Floyd completely “cut her off" following racial slur despite past apology.

    Months after the 26-year-old was slammed by MTV fans for calling Vice President Kamala Harris a “colored woman,” Mackenzie finally spoke out on the controversial matter. 

    The controversial TV personality went on Instagram Live on Saturday however, she has since deleted the footage from her page. 

    “My mouth has been forced shut for a long time and I feel like I deserve to get to use my voice,” she started off the video with a smile. 

    She then explained: “I talked to Cheyenne and I thought things were going to be amazing but it was just a downward spiral from there. 

    “We need to get rid of the racism and racial injustice but I’m not racist. Cancel culture is too big, we’re canceling people left and right.”

    The Oklahoma native then said of her Teen Mom co-star: “I told Cheyenne, ‘I love you.’ 

    "And her message back was ‘I have no sympathy for you. Welcome to day 1 of being uncomfortable because of the color of your skin.’ 

    “So if she hates me, that’s fine. That’s fine because I said something ignorant but I messaged and told her that I love her. 

    “I said ‘I love you, I want to hold your hand and do this together with you.’ But she decided right then and there she’s done with me. Cut me off.”

    TEEN MAMA DRAMA

    The MTV star went on to explain in a now-deleted Instagram Live that their feud is still strong following Mack's racial slur.

    She said in the video: “Cheyenne tweeted that I’m ignorant. I would’ve gone live with her, I would’ve gone on her podcast.

    "And I thought it was going to be amazing and then everything was still a downward spiral from there."

    The TV personality continued: “I’m still confused why I can’t get on and stay sorry from my heart.

    "I know what you’re doing on the show and we need to get rid of all the racial injustices but I’m not racist.

    "Cancel culture is real and we’re canceling people left and right. But if she wants to hate me, she can. I said something ignorant."

    People on Reddit slammed Mackenzie, with one writing: "Makes absolutely no goddamn sense and yet somehow still turns out racist."

    "Okay but she's ignorant and doesn't actually want to stop and listen to and take in information.

    "Doesn't want to set her own beliefs aside to really understand what is being told to her, nor does she want to put herself in someone else's shoes," another wrote.

    Aside from parenting the three, she’s currently going to school to become a registered medical assistant and plans on graduating in September.

    Gary wanted to “give her a much needed break” from it all and took her on a date to a drive-in movie on Friday, but she didn’t last long.

    He posted one photo of the screen, which was showing the new Mortal Kombat movie, followed by one of Kristina fast asleep in the car.

    In the comments, some fans asked what she’s going to school for, and Gary said she’s doing the RMA program to start and then will “continue up the ladder.”

    The 29-year-old said: “Yesterday, we were asking Lincoln what colors things were to see what he sees because he’s color blind.

    “Someone in my comments said for me to ask him what color my eyes are. So, we’re about to ask him to see what he sees.”

    Kailyn walked over to the table and switched the camera from being on her face to showing Lincoln sitting down and smiling, ready to answer whatever she throws him way.

    “Lincoln, what color are my eyes,” the Teen Mom asked.

    He quickly responded: “Like, greenish, brownish.”
