'Teen Mom' star Cheyenne Floyd's ex Cory Wharton slammed as fans spot daughter, 5, riding in car without seatbelt
'Corey wasn’t wearing his seat belt at all so not surprised he doesn’t have hers probably secured,' said a user
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Cheyenne Floyd's ex Cory Wharton has been blasted by 'Teen Mom' viewers after they spotted their daughter, Ryder, without a seatbelt. The five-year-old was seen strapped into a child's booster seat with the seatbelt tucked behind her back.
A 'Teen Mom' fan captured an episode of the long-running show and uploaded it on Reddit. "I’m sorry for another one of these posts but UGH…. It’s bad enough she’s in a booster let alone not even having the chest strap on," the Redditor said. Ryder, 5, is shown in the backseat of Cheyenne's ex and her dad, Cory Wharton's vehicle.
The comment thread rapidly filled up with concerns for Ryder and complaints against the parents. Someone wrote: "Yikes. If they get in a wreck with her strapped in like this, she’s going to get seriously hurt." Calling out Cory further on the situation, another fan commented, "Corey wasn’t wearing his seat belt at all so not surprised he doesn’t have hers probably secured." A third viewer added: "The lack of car seat safety in this show is appalling." One fan even slammed MTV for not putting on disclaimers or using this as an opportunity to spread awareness: "Mtv could throw up one of their disclaimers or make any of them go to a car seat clinic. They could spread so much awareness and choose not to. Scenes like this make other people think it’s not that bad and everyone does this."
However, some fans came to Cheyenne's defense clearing the air how Ryder was riding in her father's car: "I just watched this episode and this was when she was in Cory's car! so his fault not hers for this." Some fans, though, weren't going to let Cheyenne off the hook that easy, as one comment read: "Fair enough, but if i wasn't with my baby daddy, I'd be on him about car seat safety. I have seen chey have her not strapped properly tho. Its amazing how they all suck with car seat safety🤯."
Expecting Cory to understand how Ryder was already big enough for the carseat she was in, a fan wrote :"She’s 5. I really doubt she is truly big enough for a booster seat only. She should at least be in a high back booster, I believe. Do better Cory 😔." Further pointing out how the situation was in violation of law, another concerned fan commented: "She’s around 5 now. She is sitting in a booster, she’s not strapped in. This is a citation if you get caught. The laws are roughly the same in most states with a pretty low min to switch from harness to booster and only a ticket if you get caught doing it wrong. My state has much higher tickets for not driving on the phone than not using the correct seat."
Zach Davis, Cheyenne's fiance, was also targeted by a fan. "Booster is the least of that kids worries. If I was Chey and made the decision to staywith a*s wipe, I’d be getting the kid a bulletproof vest," said the fan, alluding to the shooting that almost killed her and her family. A shooter opened fire on the reality star, her two children, Ryder and Ace, and Zach in their car.
The first season of 'Teen Mom: The Next Chapter' is currently on air with new episodes every Tuesday at 8 pm ET on MTV.
