American Idol superstar Adam Lambert is stirring the pot yet again! After launching an attack on MTV’s reality drama Teen Mom for being trashy and harmful to kids, Mr. Lambert’s Twitter friends began disowning him.
Maybe Adam criticized the show because it’s exploitative trash that encourages teen motherhood; or maybe he did because of that one day he turned it on because there was nothing else on TV only to find himself get up later once the marathon was over…
Either way, the controversy began last week when Adam tweeted about the show.
Here’s the tweet that set everything in motion…
“This Teen Mom show on MTV is so depressing. I know it’s ‘real life’ but shouldn’t there be programming that inspires kids to shoot higher? #glorifyingwhitetrash”
This led to an immediate backlash, with fans tweeting back their disapproval of Adam’s comments. Which led Adam to explain himself:
“I’m not saying that all teen moms are white trash. Don’t misunderstand. Yet, most of the ones on that show seem to be. I do, however, think they’re are being exploited a bit.”
The next day, Adam noticed that his follower count had decreased. His comment on the matter?
“Woah I lost some followers yesterday cuz I had a valid opinion about a tv show. Hahah. #sensitivesallies #AdammustalwaysbePC”
In related news… it was recently pointed out to me, and I totally see it – Doesn’t Adam look like that nutty ass Teen Mom/strong> chick Amber Portwood? Just sayin’…
