It’s been nearly a week now since Ryan Edwards was arrested, which means he’s spent nearly a week in jail.
It’s been a weird, sad time, right?
There have been conflicting reports about the reason for the arrest, with many reports claiming that he’d been caught with heroin again.
Other reports say that he was taken to jail for violating his probation by missing a court date back in May.
Either way, Ryan violated probation, which isn’t great, considering it’s the second time he’s done so.
Remember, the original arrest for possession of heroin happened last year, and he was placed on probation for a year.
When he was nearly done with that, he was arrested for failing a drug test with heroin in his system, and he was given six more months of probation.
So at this point, it seems pretty clear that probation isn’t working so great, which is probably why he’s being held without bond this time around.
His court date is set for August 6th, so he’ll be hanging out in jail for at least a little while longer.
So what’s his pregnant wife, Mackenzie Standifer, doing until then?
Doing photo shoots and telling off haters, apparently.
Remember earlier this year when she gave her Instagram account to her photographer friend?
She took it back recently, and she’s been sharing some photos of her baby bump, which is getting pretty big now, considering she’s due in October.
It seems like sometime in the past few days, she posed for some photos with her friend.
She shared this one on Instagram:
In her caption, she wrote “She has a kind soul, but a cold [heart emoji].”
Later, she edited it to add “This isn’t a new revelation, I’ve always been the ice queen.”
It’s not hard to figure out why she’s talking like this: a whole, whole lot of Teen Mom OG fans hate her.
Some fans hate her so much that they blame her for Ryan’s drug use, because she’s an enabler, see?
She’s also been seen talking trash about Maci Bookout several times on the show, which hasn’t done anything for her popularity, either.
And that’s why the vast majority of the comments on her new post are so negative.
“You know it’s harder to be a bitch than it is to be nice and loving,” someone told her. “It’s nothing to be proud of.”
“Ice queen mom and drug addict convict dad,” another person wrote. “That poor baby.”
One person told her “I hope the father of your child sobers the hell up!”, and another pointed out “your husband is in jail and u taking pictures.”
One of her followers got super direct, telling her “Girl, get your f-cking head out of your ass and grow the f-ck up.”
Finally, Mackenzie’s photographer jumped into the fray to defend her friend, writing “I’d like to meet a single troll on this post who has a job, isn’t an addict themselves, isn’t miserable, and isn’t completely insecure.”
“You all have some major soul/hobby searching to do if putting down a hurting mom to be makes you feel satisfied or content.”
“She might have had TV time,” she continued, “but she is still human trying to figure sh-t out.”
“If you don’t know her personally your comments are baseless and a way to compensate for the sh-t in your own life.”
The friend actually made several comments on the post, and in one she wrote “Mack is one of the most selfless people I know.”
“She sees the best in people and is SO freaking loyal it’s blinding. You don’t know her, and you don’t want to.”
She went on and on about how wonderful Mackenzie is, and how nobody knows the kind of person she truly is, but before too long, Mackenzie herself stepped in to call her off.
“Lol these little phone bullies who have nothing better to do than comment ignorance on a picture can kiss my ass,” she began.
She suggested that the people “drilling me with facts you think you know about myself and my husband” take some time from doing that to “go volunteer your services at your local clinic/hospital/medical school research team.”
“I’m sure they’d be happy to have you and the breadth of your knowledge.”
So much sass in one little comment, right?
We imagine that she’s been hearing and seeing lots and lots of negativity since Ryan’s arrest — and also, you know, for almost the entire time she’s been with Ryan.
It’s understandable that she’d snap after a point.
Hopefully in addition to going off on strangers on social media, she’s also dealing with everything that’s happening in a healthier way.
After all, if Ryan’s going to be staying in jail for a while, she’s going to need to pull everything together to have that baby of theirs.
Best of luck, Mack.
