Teen Mom alumni Jenelle Evans was recently dropped from her clothing deal after attacking LeBron James for his Kyle Rittenhouse comments.
The former reality television star felt compelled to come at James after he tweeted about the young shooter’s dramatic performance in court.
“What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court,” James wrote.

Evans then fired off a series of responses, slamming James for speaking ill towards Rittenhouse, who was 17-years-old when he gunned down two men and injured a third during an August 2020 Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Despite traveling from his home in Antioch, Illinois, armed with weapons to confront the protesters, Rittenhouse claims he killed the men in self-defense.
The 29-year-old claims that James shouldn’t have spoken about a minor, even though Rittenhouse committed heinous acts. She has since made her Twitter account private after receiving massive criticism. The backlash carried over to Evans’s professional side when she explained in a tearful TikTok video that athleisure company SewSew You was ending their partnership with her.
“Been crying all morning. Sorry to let everyone’s hopes up, but @sewsewyou has dropped me because of haters,” she wrote in the caption. The video also revealed that she tried to create her own website using the company’s images she’d already photographed. However, they reached out to her, stating that she could not do that either.
