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.

Farrah Abraham Feuds with Her Engaged Mom After Learning Jenelle Evans' Ex Is Invited to Wedding

Things don’t seem to be getting any better between Farrah Abraham and her mother Debra Danielsen.

On Monday evening’s episode of Teen Mom OG, the MTV star, 26, called her mother to inquire about certain guests who had been invited to her upcoming nuptials.

Danielsen, who has spent several episodes attempting to convince her daughter to attend her wedding, seemed taken aback when Abraham asked her on FaceTime why she’d invited Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans’ ex-husband, Courtland Rogers, to her wedding.

“I was just wondering what’s going on with you inviting someone who Jenelle has been married to, who has been a habitual criminal, unsafe for kids and you’re having that around your grandkids basically,” Abraham said.

Danielsen immediately responded, saying, “Well, first of all, Farrah, God sees all of us the same way and if somebody has changed their life and if somebody is a good person, then nobody can judge or condemn anybody.”

Despite her mother’s explanation, Abraham didn’t seem inclined to accept the answer.

“You know what, mom, I’m not even a f—— criminal and I’ve changed my life probably more than anybody I’ve seen changes theirs. But still, criminals condemn me every day and act like they’re more of your best friend than I’ve ever seen,” Abraham said.

She continued, “I’ve just seen such fake behavior that I think that’s what criminals are good at: faking behavior and then showing up at your wedding.”

Danielsen said, “Anybody who has to call other people criminals are nothing but afraid of facing reality.”

“Mom, did you know that they’re warning you and protecting you because they’ve had some horrific experiences?” Abraham said, referring to Evans letting her know about her past with Rogers.

“This is a safe zone and it’s gonna be safe,” Danielsen said, referring to her wedding to Dr. David Merz.

“You think you can overtalk me so you can overtalk yourself,” Abraham said, quickly ending the conversation with, “So mom, why don’t you shut up so you can unconfuse your brain?”

“I wish every1 could realize that lifes short! U honestly NEVER KNO IN TODAYS world what U got until it’s gone!Worry about your OWN LIFE&NOT any1 else’s! NOBODY has the right to judge a man by the fictional life in which over the years social media has created of the person im not,” he wrote.

Evans discussed Rogers in her book, Read Between the Lines: From the Diary of a Teenage Mom, where she claimed she learned she was pregnant with his baby but decided to have an abortion.

“I know people judge me harshly for my choice,” Evans wrote in her book. “If you are hoping for a long, detailed description of what I was going through at the time of my decision, I hate to disappoint you. I have talked about it enough. I did what was best for my body at that time, and I have moved on from it.”
