TEEN Mom star Maci Bookout threw shade at ex Ryan Edwards by “liking” a tweet about “stepparents cleaning up messes” after their huge reunion fight.
Maci's husband Taylor McKinney has been vocal about protecting his stepson Bentley, calling him "our son" during the Teen Mom OG reunion show.
Following a series of subtweets and cryptic messages, Maci, 29, added more fuel to the fire by "liking" a tweet about stepparents.
Singer Sarah Lenore took time out of her day to publicly message the reality star on Twitter.
She wrote: @MaciBookout Hi, I rarely tweet. Please let Taylor know – as a Stepmom I appreciate him & can understand everything he said in the latest episode.
"The world doesn’t know what you go through behind closed doors, esp. as stepparents cleaning up messes. Thanks for standing up."
Maci quickly liked the tweet, implying that she agreed with Sarah about "stepparents cleaning up messes."
Bentley, 12, is Maci's son with ex Ryan Edwards but the preteen and his dad have a difficult relationship.
Taylor has been praised by fans for his love of stepson who lives with him and his mom Maci.
During the recent Teen Mom OG reunion show Taylor stood up for the 12-year-old while clashing with Ryan Edwards' parents Larry and Jen.
During the reunion, Taylor said: “Bentley is becoming a young man. I think he’s shown the Edwards that he’s found his voice. He can think for himself.”
He said of Ryan: “Ya’ll saw the clip. He sat there and called my wife a b***h. In past seasons the things he’s done to Bentley, poking fun at him, making fun of him, calling him a cry baby. Enough is enough. Grow up and be a man. Don’t be a coward. Come sit out here and sit on the couch with us.”
He said how Ryan won’t speak to them because Maci is a “trigger” for his sobriety.
When asked if they think Ryan is sober now, Taylor responded: “No I don’t. This is our opinion.
"It’s based on when he shows up to something or when you see him sitting there in a scene and he can’t hardly keep his eyes open. That’s not a place I feel safe to send our son with that guy.”
As fans flooded Twitter to congratulate Taylor for defending Bentley, Maci showed her appreciation by liking the tweets.
One post she liked read: "I have a new love and appreciation for Taylor standing up for Bentley and calling him 'our son'."
Another wrote: "Listen, Taylor did not come to play with you h**s! I knew he was a real one but when he said 'OUR SON' I was giving that man a standing ovation! THAT'S A MAN."
A third posted: "Damn! Taylor not even on for 30 seconds and he's giving me such life protecting his wife and SON."
Following the explosive reunion show the entire Edwards family was fired from Teen Mom OG.
