“Teen Mom OG” star Maci Bookout seemed “definitely off” during part two of the reunion, according to some viewers. The Season 9 reunion show aired on MTV on Tuesday night. This once popular series may not be as dramatic as it used to be, but the episode was still packed with emotional punches.
“It’s time to get real about Maci,” an original poster” said a Reddit post. “She was f***** out of her mind at the reunion, like not even making sense. She is increasingly visibly inebriated in all her scenes overall.”
Responses to the original poster’s statement were mixed. While some people argued Bookout should be given some grace because she is struggling with PTSD, others accused the Tennessee native of abusing pills and alcohol. She has never openly discussed about any problems with alcohol or drugs.
“Active work on PTSD can really mess with your mind. You are confronting things that your brain buried for a reason,” one person said. “Give the woman some grace.” Not everyone had the same outlook. “Something is definitely off,” they said.
Bookout, 30, is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after being involved in a fatal shooting in a Chattanooga, Tennessee, gas station in October 2020. Bookout feared for her life and allowed “Teen Mom OG” to document the aftermath.
Whatever that she is going through, is definitely putting her fans to discomfort be it in any possible way. Some are worried about her mental and physical health and some are accusing of drug or alcohol abuse. Hopefully she can finally gather the necessary courage to come and state her problems if she has any.
