Adam Lambert’s take on ‘Teen Mom’ and the backlash

HollywoodNews.com: Adam Lambert found out this week that it’s a little tricky for him to have an opinion because people might just get offended.

Lambert took a minute to comment on the MTV show ‘Teen Mom’ and not all his fans were happy with it, states The Hollywood Gossip. Lambert originally posted this tweet: “This Teen Mom show on MTV is so depressing. I know it’s “real life” but shouldn’t there be programming that inspires kids to shoot higher? #glorifyingwhitetrash.”

However, when people went a little crazy over this, Lambert responded once more on Twitter: “Woah I lost some followers yesterday cuz I had a valid opinion about a tv show. Hahah. #sensitivesallies #AdammustalwaysbePC.”

Although, because people clearly didn’t understand what he meant, he further explained his stance on the show: “I’m not saying that all teen moms are white trash. Don’t misunderstand. Yet, most of the ones on that show seem to be. I do, however, think they’re are being exploited a bit.”

    I agree with him; what you see on that show should not be what you want for a teen. I think it is a message of what you don’t want your life to end up as. I know I should not but I tend to look down on people who had kids as a teen. I feel sorry that their self worth was so low that they would have sex and not take precautions. I kid is a life time commitment and not one I wanted as a teenager.

    I love Adam Lambert, and he’s entitled to his opinion, but labeling someone “white trash” isn’t cool. I hate any kind of labels and Adam should too. What exactly constitutes “white trash”? I’m a 63 year old black female, and I’m disappointed at his comment. Adam has to expect this kind of backlash if he’s going to be of the opinion that he can say the first thing that pops into his head. Adam oftens speaks of unity, and yet he feels he can call young people trash because of their mistakes. I personally don’t watch the show, but I’m aware of the facts that all humans have feelings, and he could have voiced his objection to the show differently. So wouldn’t whomever produced this show be trashy also, why not call them out for exploiting these kids. It’s good to show the positive & negative sides of teen life, That my friend is part of the real world.
