If one thing is for sure, don’t talk about Nessa Diab’s family. The media personality and activist used her platform for good when she schooled Teen Mom 2 star Janelle Evans about hateful comments she made towards Diab’s partner, Colin Kaepernick.
The incident, which was intended to be a healthy conversation between the two aired Monday (May 20) during the Teen Mom 2 reunion. Throughout the season, Evans was reportedly upset about Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood speaking about her husband David Eason on social media. Surprisingly, Evans orchestrated the same behavior when she made a Facebook post about Kaepernick and his partnership with Nike. Evans reportedly slammed Nike for working with Kaepernick and allegedly burned Nike gear in protest of their decision.
While Nessa didn’t break down everything Evans said, she shared the post on the screen behind them.“When I saw those comments, I did not attack you online, nor did I disrespect you over the years,” Nessa said. “My man uses his platform to peacefully protest police brutality against black people…that is the issue…I would’ve appreciated it if you contacted me.”
Nessa brought up the incident in an effort to show Evans how hypocritical she was being towards Portwood.
Evans denied doing the post and later accused MTV of using her. “I honestly have no idea who your boyfriend is…I would like to see [the comments] because what if it was an ad…was it an ad?” Jenelle asked. “I’m highly confused right now. I don’t know anything about your husband, and I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about. I swear to god, I’m done with this bulls**t. This is exactly why I didn’t want to f***ing come here,” she said. “This is about my storyline, and you want to bring up your issues? Okay. You got your show.”
As Evans stormed off stage, Nessa remained calm and detailed her working relationship with the mother of three.
“I’ve known Jenelle over the years, and I’ve always been fair and just to her,” she said. “It wouldn’t have been authentic to who I am to be on this stage with someone who disrespected my family on social media.”
Shortly after the reunion aired, Evans continued to deny the allegations while her husband went on to attack Nessa and mock the death of slain rapper and activist Nipsey Hussle.
If the reunion wasn’t about David Jenelle then why is he already going off and attacking Nessa? The amount this chick lies is seriously beyond incredible 🤣. pic.twitter.com/uIouVOw98O
