'Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant': Rachel hints she wants to spend her birthday drinking and fans are not happy
Rachel Beaver is turning 17 and there is no looking back for her! In today's episode of 'Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant', Rachel revealed that there are only two things that she wants for her birthday: money and time for herself. Ever since Rachel gave birth to her daughter, Hazlee, she has been craving for some "me" time and she was making sure that her birthday allows her to do that.
However, her mother, Stephanie wanted to do something special for her birthday. When Stephanie asked Rachel what she wanted to do for her birthday, the reality star was quick to respond stating that she wanted 40 dollars to spend and nothing else.
She further revealed she wanted that money so she could drink the night away. Despite this, Stephanie wanted Rachel to consider spending time with the family or enjoying her birthday differently than she had imagined. She asked her if she would be willing to spend the day with her family and they all could get a cake.
However, Rachel dismissed this idea and made it clear that the only thing that she was interested in was to spend money and enjoy all her time by herself. She further added that she did not want any gifts on her birthday and would rather settle for some money. While Rachel had a plan on how she would spend the money, fans were angered when they realized that she would be using that money to buy drinks.
Many took to social media to express their disappointment. One fan wrote, "The last thing you should be thinking about is getting plastered on your birthday. Not to mention you're still too young to drink. Time to grow up and leave the partying behind. You get no breaks from being a mom. That's a full-time job.," read one comment.
One fan even compared Rachel to 'Teen Mom 2' star, Jenelle Evans as the comment read, "Shes 17 she can't even legally drink. I thought Jenelle was bad but this girl takes the cake. Her mother should be ashamed of herself."
Meanwhile, others wondered if they should stop watching the show as another comment read, "I had to search legal age to drink in Tennessee to make sure the laws weren’t different, but nope, underage drinking for sure. I have never stopped watching the series even for Farrah but I might just stop because of this girl. Nasty, nasty, nasty!"
'Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant' airs on Tuesdays at 9 pm on MTV.
