Teen Mom's Jenelle Evans Dropped by Advertiser After Customers Complain About Her Past

Jenelle Evans was fired by a food delivery company after multiple customers complained about the Teen Mom 2 star’s involvement in their advertisements.

Evans worked with Blue Apron, which delivers ingredients and recipes to subscribers, posting paid Instagram posts promoting the service.

However, customers complained on Twitter about Evans’ involvement with the company stating her past use of homophobic slurs and a criminal record made her unfit to represent the family-focused label.

Blue Apron answered the complaints on Twitter last week, saying “Thanks for reaching out. We will no longer be advertising with Jenelle,” after a customer shared two screenshots of Evan’s son, Kaiser, allegedly yelling to be fed while she appeared frustrated.

The company gave the same response to all customers who tweeted their complaints against Evans. Her rep did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Last week, people sent Blue Apron screenshots of tweets Evans made in 2012 that included her using a derogatory word for gay men, prompting one person to tweet, “@blueapron Why are you paying homophobic Jenelle Evans to promote your service #boycottBlueApron.”

Another person on Twitter complained about Evan’s previous substance abuse, which the reality TV star has been open about in her book Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mom. Evans is currently sober.

The mother of three detailed how opioids quickly began to control her life shortly after she tried it for the first time.

Evans wrote she “won’t glamorize the drug by going into the long details of why people love it so damned much,” but admitted that her “first trip was amazing.”

“Before I knew it, I was shooting up four or five times a day. I was hooked,” she wrote in the excerpt, obtained by E! News at the time.

The drug soon took its toll: Evans said she lost her family – including son Jace, who was, at one point, under the sole custody of her mother Barbara Evans. Much of Evans’ custody and personal problems with her mother were documented during her time on the MTV show, which she has appeared on since 2011.

“I disowned my mother and siblings and friends, but the truth is no one wants to talk to you when they suspect you’re a junkie,” she said.

Evans previously opened up to PEOPLE about getting clean in 2015, saying that sobriety had made her “more active in my children’s lives.”

She said, “My life has changed so much since I stopped doing drugs — my whole attitude has changed.”

The reality star is now a mom of three: Jace, 8, Kaiser, 3, and Ensley, 13 months.

Arsene Wenger reveals why Arsenal failed to sign Jonny Evans

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger today opened up on his side’s January chase of West Brom captain Jonny Evans.

Dependable presence

Since making the move to the Hawthorns from Manchester United in 2015, 30-year-old central defender Evans has gone on to establish himself as one of the Premier League’s most consistent stoppers.

The 67-time capped Northern Ireland international has proven himself to be not only a hugely capable defender, but also a stellar leader, with his experience having proven crucial to his side’s stout defensive record over the last couple of seasons (not so much this season, though).

Suitors

Evans’ impressive showings for West Brom last season certainly didn’t go unnoticed on the part of the English top-flight’s biggest sides, with Manchester City and Arsenal having both expressed an interest in the Baggies’ star during the summer.

In the end, though, West Brom stood firm, with Pep Guardiola having admitted that (former Baggies boss) ‘Tony Pulis put a price (on Evans) that we couldn’t afford at that moment.’

Emirates bound?

However, the battle for Evans was very much back underway following the opening of the winter transfer market at the beginning of last month, with Arsenal and City once again having emerged as the leading contenders for his signature.

Gunners’ boss Arsene Wenger admitted early last month that his side would come out ‘second best’ if pitted in a battle of finances with Pep Guardiola’s runaway Premier League table-toppers for Evans, but, in the end, the Citizens opted to splash out a hefty 65 million Euro to bring in Aymeric Laporte from Athletic Bilbao, seemingly leaving Arsenal with a free run at West Brom’s star man.

Financial constraints

In the end, though, the North Londoners failed to secure a deal for Evans, despite confirmation from numerous outlets in England that Arsenal had in fact tabled a last-ditch offer for the Northern Irishman.

Speaking in an interview with BT Sport earlier today, Gunners’ boss Arsene Wenger was questioned on his side’s pursuit of Evans, with the Frenchman revealing that, following the big-money arrival of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the Emirates, the club simply couldn’t afford to pay the sum requested by West Brom for their captain:

‘I said many times that we did what we wanted to do but not all that we wanted to do.’

‘He was not available for what we could afford.’
