While many fans revealed they were excited about her venture and all the perks that'll come with it, her announcement was also met with a lot of backlashes. In fact, internet trolls took the news as an opportunity to berate the former Bachelor star and her parenting skills.
"How the hell is she a good mentor for young teens? I won’t be watching she’s a tv reality try hard! We’ve seen enough of you Alex thanks but no thanks," one social media user wrote.
Another added: "I sincerely wish you well and all the very best Alex but at the same time there is such a thing as ‘enough already’ move on Alex get a real life. Be a mother. I don’t think anyone of these people are good role models or have good life morals and values. 🤔 Maybe I should watch and tell my kids this is NOT how you should behave and that you should have more self respect? Good luck with your next venture Alex I hope it all works out for you 👍 I won’t be watching to find out."
Instead of stooping to their level, Alex took the higher ground by wishing the trolls nothing but "wonderful things".
"I will never understand why when a person succeeds, people try and tear them down. What a f*****g sad thing! To each of you above, I wish you all wonderful things," she clapped back. "How much better would the world be if we lifted others instead of bringing them down. I am so damn excited for this venture, thanks for sharing ❤️"
Teen Mom Australia is set to follow Ammersen Chambers, Akosita Masima and Georgina Manios. The 10- part series will document the highs and lows of motherhood as the trio manage a life full of nappies, tears and tantrums, combined with strained relationships, drama and the complexities of being a teenager.
Teen Mom Australia will premiere this winter exclusively on MTV on Foxtel, Foxtel Now and Fetch
