"Teen Mom OG" star Catelynn Lowell Baltierra was getting lit up by the Internet this week after Monday's episode of the MTV showed her apparently driving under the influence of marijuana.
The reality star has said she struggles with depression, and in April she sought treatment for her symptoms at an Arizona rehab facility.
During the episode that aired Monday, a scene shows the mother of two putting a sweater over the MTV camera. A lighter can be heard in the background, along with Catelynn coughing.
"We're going to boogie town," her mother, April, says.
Then the two get in the car and drive.
As her critics mounted, Catelynn took to Instagram to address the controversy, posting a picture of a quote from reggae legend Bob Marley.
"Who are you to judge the life I live? I know I'm not perfect and I don't live to be, but before you start pointing fingers make sure your hands are clean," the quote read. Catelynn captioned the quote with an emoji indicating she approves and an emoji of lips.
She hasn't exactly denied that she was smoking marijuana and driving, either.
"Yes I was 100% wrong for medicating while driving," she tweeted earlier this week. "That was before I got my card & I know better now. Indica species=less anxiety #NoXanax."
In response to someone telling her to take Xanax for her issues, she said, "What works for me may not work for you, but I didn't like how Xanax made me feel. I like the organic route."
Some applauded her for her admission that smoking and driving was not in her best interest.
"I always admit when I screw up, I'm a human being & deserve all the respect AND criticism that comes along with it," she said.
Some applauded her for using marijuana, as opposed to pills.
Catelynn's husband Tyler Baltierra basically confirmed that it was marijuana in tweets of his own.
"Weed is definitely legal in [Michigan]," he tweeted Monday. "I should know, because I don't break the law… I follow it respectfully."
For the record, he's not exactly correct. First off, it's illegal to drive under the influence of marijuana. Secondly, marijuana is actually only legal in that state if someone has a serious medical condition.
