MTV's reality television series "Teen Mom OG" has triggered several controversies with the casting of porn star Farrah Abraham. Though she is not a new cast member in the show, many are raising eyebrows due to her sex tape with porn legend James Deen in 2013.
Immediately after MTV announced the news about the celeb's casting, her co-stars – Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell and Amber Portwood – and viewers started sharing their disagreement on the decision.
While her co-stars believe that the 23-year-old's involvement will affect the credibility of the show, viewers are worried about their children's future because they may take her as a role model.
Meanwhile, Michael Abraham supported his daughter, saying she just sold her rights to Vivid Entertainment. "Bottom line, I know that she doesn't whore or anything else. My daughter did not sell her body. She sold the rights to a video," Wetpaint quoted him as saying.
However, his statement has not satisfied many "Teen Mom OG" fans and they still believe that the makers should re-think about casting Farrah.
Here are some of the viewers comments on MTV's official page:
MTV I'm disappointed. You have a platform and to 16 year olds now watching this show, putting in their face that they can be like Farrah and be 'famous' is irresponsible on your part. Setting a GOOD example for young women, that's what this show is SUPPOSED TO BE about.
The show is better off without her Besides once she is done I am sure she will be knocking at the backdoor of the adult industry to let her in.
Not too excited to witness any more of Farrah's self centered, belligerent nasty attitude... It makes me downright disgusted seeing the way she intereracts with people, never considering their feelings or having simple respect.
I like Farrah but she is spoiled and she is ******. That is NOT what this show is supposed to be about. Its supposed to be about growth.
MTV this is doomed to fail by bringing back such a disrespectful brat of a kid. It's too bad because the rest of the young ladies have really done good things with their lives.
