Teen Mom 2 alum Nathan Griffith came to his son Kaiser’s defense after a troll mocked the 8-year-old’s weight.
Teen Mom 2 viewers know Nathan from his time on the show while he was in a relationship with controversial alum Jenelle Evans. The former couple shares their 8-year-old son, Kaiser.
Since his split from Jenelle, Nathan has remained active in Kaiser’s life, per their custody agreement, which allows Nathan visits every other weekend.
Recently, Nathan took to Instagram to call out a troll who negatively commented on Kaiser’s weight on social media. Nathan included a screenshot of the comment from a social media post.
The comment read, “Aren’t you a gym freak? Why don’t you teach your son some tips because clearly he needs it.”
Obviously, the comment riled Nathan, who fired back: “Wow!!! Hopefully, this is a joke. Body shaming a kid for his weight.”
