MTV & 'Teen Mom' Part Ways with Cory Wharton's Girlfriend Taylor Selfridge Over Racially Insensitive Tweets

MTV has cut ties with Teen Mom star Cory Wharton‘s girlfriend Taylor Selfridge.

If you don’t know, Cory was originally on the show with the mom of his daughter, Cheyenne Floyd. He soon began dating Taylor, and now they have a daughter together.

MTV filmed a baby special for Cory and Taylor, but after past racially charged social media statements resurfaced, the network ended their relationship with her.

“MTV pulled Teen Mom OG At Home: Cory & Taylor’s Baby Special from its Tuesday schedule and is ending our relationship with Taylor Selfridge in light of her past racist statements on social media,” an MTV spokesperson told People. “MTV strongly condemns systemic racism and stands with those raising their voices against injustice.”

“As you guys know already our special didn’t air tonight. I made the decision last week to not film the next season of Teen Mom OG with Cory for the benefit of myself and my daughter,” Taylor wrote on her Instagram, which has been made private. “I don’t believe the reality tv lifestyle benefits me any further at this point in my life. With current events being what they are and reality tv being selective in who they apply rules to or what is considered acceptable behavior, I do not have any further respect.”

She continued, “Once again, I apologize for anyone I have hurt or offended in the past. I have addressed my mistakes many times on the network and I would like to move on and continue to be the best version of myself. My past does not define who I am today and I hope you guys can see the change. Please respect my decision to provide a normal, healthy life for my family.”
