Speaking to PEOPLE magazine the firm officially confirmed that Taylor Selfridge exclusive with her partner Cory Wharton ‘Teen Mom OG At Home: Cory & Taylor’s Baby Special’ will be removed from their channel. Further, the firm also ended its contract with the reality show star post she was criticized for her previous racially thoughtless posts on Twitter.
A source from MTV stated that: “ MTV pulled Teen Mom OG At Home: Cory & Taylor’s Baby Special from its Tuesday schedule and is ending our relationship with Taylor Selfridge in light of her past racist statements on social media.” And “MTV strongly condemns systemic racism and stands with those raising their voices against injustice.”
Addressing on the issue Taylor spoke about her goodbyes with MTV in her social media with a caption saying she will love to “move on and continue to be the best version of myself.”
“As you guys know already our special didn’t air tonight. I made the decision last week to not film the next season of Teen Mom OG with Cory for the benefit of myself and my daughter,” she wrote. “I don’t believe the reality tv lifestyle benefits me any further at this point in my life. With current events being what they are and reality tv being selective in who they apply rules to or what is considered acceptable behavior, I do not have any further respect.”
