Teen Mom Maci Bookout defends Cheyenne Floyd & blasts Mackenzie McKee for ‘not treating people well’ amid feud

TEEN Mom OG star Maci Bookout defended her costar Cheyenne Floyd and blasted Mackenzie McKee for ‘not treating people well.’

The MTV cast members have been feuding after Mackenzie used a racial slur earlier this year.

Maci shared a video of her Cheyenne, Catelynn Baltierra and Amber Portwood doing a promotional shoot around the Teen Mom OG reunion.

They were seen eating grapes popcorn and chips together on a couch.

She captioned the pic: "I’d take great friends over nice things any day! #sistersforever tmogfamily.

"I’m so blessed to have these women in my life! #weloveus @realamberlportwood1__ @cheynotshy @catelynnmtv."

The r/TeenMomOGandTeenMom2 Reddit shared a thread where followers commented: "Where is Mac in all the pictures and videos?"

Mackenzie replied before she deleted her Instagram: "Chey hates me so I did it solo. They are editing me in."

But Maci shot back: "With all due respect @MackenzieMckee there is no editing on my Instagram page, and if we're going to call things out we can start now.

"As far as I am concerned, you're far too worried about how you're portrayed to people than you are on how you treat people.

"If you prefer, we can continue this conversation elsewhere. If not, I won't take offense to you unfollowing me.

"Next time you want to say something that starts a conversation, please don't delete it."

This follows the r/TeenMomOGandTeenMom2 Reddit sharing Mackenzie's post: "Being left out because one girl hates me. Cool."

A social media user replied: "I was wondering why you weren't in the pics? I thought you guys all got along."

Mackenzie responded: "Same… I hate how easily my feelings get hurt."

She previously said she's a victim of "cancel culture" after her feud with Cheyenne Floyd over a racial slur. 

The Teen Mom OG had claimed Cheyenne has "cut her off" after she called Vice President Kamala Harris a "colored woman" in a Facebook post.

Yesterday, Mackenzie began posting accusations MTV left her out of the cast shooting for the reunion.

Cheyenne took to her Instagram stories, writing: "I am not an MTV producer… I don't call the shots. But if you feel the need to keep bullying me over things that haven't happened to make you feel seen…

"Be my guest. You have an odd fixation on me. Your rendition of how things happened are beyond delusional and I wish you would focus on yourself and leave me alone. @MackennzieMcKee"

Mackenzie also responded in a lengthy social media video, saying: "You know many of you know about the humiliating mistake I made that I was extremely sorry about, and I wish more than anything I wouldn't have brought one of the girls from the show, Cheyenne, into it because it wasn't her mistake. And she shouldn't have had to carry that burden on her shoulder of being brought into it. I really just wanted to have that conversation with her, and we did have a really good conversation at first. And for some reason, it turned south. I'm just not used to this. I don't have a problem with any of them… I don't like having problems with anyone. I don't know how it turned into this.

She went on of feeling excluded from the reunion shoot: "I go, and MTV texted me, 'Hey we're doing things a little different. You're actually not going to come on set.' Basically, they were telling me we're just going to do you solo. And when I showed up, everyone was gone. They were like, 'Yeah, all the girls filmed all day. We're doing it different.' I kind of thought maybe it's because of Covid, but I just went with it, and so in all my photoshoots and in all my photos I did a photo on the couch, and they said we're editing all of you guys in on the couch together so just like eat popcorn and be fun.' And I'm like, 'okay.' And it was just really weird.

And I asked them… did me saying sorry to her bother her so much she demanded I was not in these photos? And they just wouldn't answer… And I was told by MTV… they did not do anything with all the girls together, and I'm not singled out. It's not that way, it's just being done different. And I get off the plane, and it's like you might as well have slapped me in the face when I got 100 messages of people screenshotting Cheyenne not only posting a photo of all four girls, but her saying, "my favorites."

"… I hate that I'm sad. I hate that this really hurts me that I was not only lied to but because I said sorry this had to happen… And all the girls are posting all the photos and all the videos that I was lied to about not by them. And everyone was asking why I wasn't in the photo, and I said I think it's because Cheyenne hates me… I don't know what the reason was, but I know the schedule changed as soon as I said sorry to her. The schedule changed where I'm not a part of anything. I'm confused. I'm lost, and now Maci's mad at me and posting stuff. So I don't understand."


In May, Mackenzie said she's a victim of "cancel culture" after her feud with Cheyenne Floyd over the racial slur. 

Mackenzie took to TikTok for a message to "all the moms," as she said: "When you are a mom… and that child makes one little mistake because they're human and that's what humans do, do we let that define everything about them? Do we automatically dismiss all the good they do… and we cancel them?

"And we cancel them and they are now known for that one mistake they did and we blow that up and focus on that little mistake? No. Because we're smarter than that…"

She added: "So, why are we doing that to other people? Why do we blow up every little mistake they do and dismiss all the hard work they put in or dismiss where their heart truly is?

"Why do we dismiss all the mistakes we've ever made and just cancel people?"

The MTV star previously said: "I’m still confused why I can’t get on and stay sorry from my heart. 

“We need to get rid of racism and racial injustice, but I’m not racist. 

“Cancel culture is too big, we’re canceling people left and right… But if she (Cheyenne) wants to hate me, she can. I said something ignorant."

In a Teen Mom episode, Mackenzie spoke with a social rights activist from Color Of Change to educate herself more on her racially insensitive comments.  

She was asked: “What are some of the things you feel like you’ve learned since you said that?”

Mackenzie replied: “My privilege. I used to say ‘how am I privileged I’ve been through hard things too.’ But I realized I never had it hard because of my skin color.

In January, Teen Mom fans labeled Mackenzie racist when she the Vice President a “colored” woman on her Facebook page.

The mom wrote: "Sorry, no. There are a lot of amazing women in the world for my daughters to look up to and see as role models. Kamala Harris is not one of them.

"It blows my mind that out of all the amazing colored women in this world, that is the one who is making history.”

While viewers ripped Mackenzie for the comment, her co-star Cheyenne, 28, got on Twitter to encourage her followers to “educate.”

She tweeted: “It’s time to have a conversation, a form, something to educate and enlighten because ignorance is pervasive.”

Mackenzie lashed out at Cheyenne for "cutting off" contact with her after her comment and she said in an Instagram Live: "Cheyenne tweeted that I’m ignorant. I would’ve gone live with her, I would’ve gone on her podcast.  I talked to Cheyenne, and I thought things were going to be amazing, but it was just a downward spiral from there."

The Oklahoma native then said of her 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.’"

Mackenzie added: “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.” 

This is not the first Teen Mom OG franchise racism scandal as Cheyenne’s baby daddy Cory Wharton’s girlfriend, Taylor Selfridge, was fired from the popular reality show last season for resurfaced racist tweets.
