“Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans and her mother, Barbara, took to Instagram Live on Saturday to chat with fans, but now some of the mom’s words have landed her in hot water.
During the live streaming session, Jenelle and Barbara drank wine and ate pizza as they interacted with viewers, according to E! News.
At one point, they were on a video call with co-star Brittany DeJesus when Barbara suggested that they “get lit and kill Kail,” in reference to another co-star, Kailyn Lowry.
Jenelle quickly reminded her mom that they were streaming live to fans, she said:
“Oh my god, we’re on live, mom. You can’t say that s***.”
The comment quickly prompted a call from one of the show’s producers. As Barbara spoke on the phone, her daughter joked that she was “in trouble.”
After the phone call, Barbara clarified that she didn’t actually want to kill Lowry. She told fans:
“Earlier I was talking to Brittany [DeJesus], Briana [DeJesus]’s sister and I said that I wanted to kill Kailyn. Everybody took it out of perspective. That’s not really what I meant. It was a joke.”
“I was being sarcastic and everybody freaks out like I’m going to go kill the girl. Come on, I’ve known the girl for 10 years.”
Jenelle defended her mother by claiming she is from “the old generation” and should be given “the benefit of the doubt.”
But Kailyn, a mother of three, didn’t take the comment lightly.

She took to Twitter after she was alerted to the comment by fans. She responded to one tweet:
I heard barb wants to kill me.
Kailyn also implied that even though Barbara appeared intoxicated, there could be some real feelings:

The 26-year-old mother of three later spoke out to InTouch about the incident. She told the outlet:
“I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree … I have three kids to live for, just like Barbara herself. I’m disgusted it came from her.”
Barbara’s comment comes after a feud between her daughter and Kailyn.
In December, Kailyn suggested that Jenelle’s husband, David Eason, needed a “psych eval” after he went on a rant about guns and was contacted by the secret service, according to InTouch.
At the time, Jenelle responded by pouring gasoline on a “peace offering” gift from Kailyn and lighting on fire.

********** NEGATIVE REVIEW *******. . . Been debating whether to upload this, but I feel like the time is appropriate. Kail Lowry , for years you’ve been super jealous and envious of all us girls on the show. You try to make your way into the group, then turn into a mean ass person when it came down to me. You apologize on/off, claim I need to be apologizing sometimes, then talk shit constantly about me and my husband to the tabloids?! THEN you had the balls to send me a PEACE GATHERING GIFT?! Don’t send me gifts and then go talk shit AGAIN!!! Wow, you’re an idiot cuz this is what I do for gifts sent from fake ass bitches like you. 🤷🏻♀️🖕🏼 Stay our of my life, go worry about your own. . . . . 🎶 by: @ryanupchurch 🎸 by: @thetravistidwell
For now, it seems the two aren’t ready to get over their feud any time soon.
