'Teen Mom 3' stars responds to claims of Mackenzie's pregnancy ending the series

Teen Mom 3 has been cancelled by MTV and in light of the recent news, fans everywhere have taken to Twitter to express their thoughts and on Saturday, a bit of a feud ensued after one particular fan blamed Mackenzie Douthit for getting the series cancelled.

"Tm3 is canceled because [Mackenzie] became pregnant," the fan wrote on December 7. "MTV would be dumb to broadcast that. Bad message [Briana] [Alex]."

Right away, a couple of members of the cast weighed in on the woman's ponderings, explaining why they felt that she was wrong.

"Kail had a baby you'll see that season 5 n so did Leah n they'll show that," Alex Sekella said. Then, Mackenzie told the woman, "Mackenzie is 19 and married ;) steady job and home."

Still, the woman wasn't convinced and pointed out that Kail graduated and that both she and Leah Calvert are three years older than the Teen Mom 3 cast, which led Alex to remind the woman that Mackenzie is "married and graduated with Cosmo degree" and has two kids "[with the] same dad."

Kail, on the other hand, has two children by two different men, one being Jo Rivera, who she was dating at 16, and the other being Javi Marroquin, who she met after her and Jo's split and married last year. So does Leah Calvert. Her twins father is a man she dated and married, but her youngest child's father is her second husband whom she met after her divorce.

Each girl has a different story, but with a show that is meant to give fans a reason not to get pregnant, it's probably best that they don't share stories of teens who get pregnant once and then again years later. While it may work out for some, it's not always that easy and showing these young women with multiple children veers away from the series' purpose.
