Why did Farrah Abraham get fired from ‘Teen Mom’?
Abraham was originally on 16 and Pregnant and then transitioned to Teen Mom. But in 2017, she was let go from the franchise after getting into adult entertainment.
“Even though #Viacom fired me today they couldn’t help but to exploit myself & my daughter for their promotional gain- Viacom let me go because as a Business Mogul, I act like an adult and part take in adult promotions and activities that other adults do for FREE or in private!” she said in a statement at the time.
“I’m proud of myself not giving in to be sex shamed by Viacom network, proud to not have a network take away financial opportunities for my goals, proud to be an advocate for a healthy sex life, safe sex, teen pregnancy prevention, and so much more while I run companies in different fields and scale them.”
