The controversial Teen Mom OG star is taking a lot of hate on social media after the release of the latest promo for the show's upcoming season. In the video, Abraham can be seen struggling to control her daughter Sophia.

The promo shows clips of all the teen moms, but Sophia is front and center, filmed sticking her tongue out at people, hitting her mom and throwing trash around a room. Abraham's mom can be heard expressing her displeasure at Sophia's antics — "She's sticking her tongue out at me," she tells Abraham in a frustrated tone — but it's Abraham's own way of handling Sophia's misbehavior that's attracting flak.

"Sometimes you're immature, and you're selfish, and you don't think about other people but yourself," Abraham tells her daughter during the spot.

Those are pretty harsh words, and Twitter isn't going to let Abraham get away with talking to Sophia that way. Followers have been tweeting at Abraham since the promo went live, criticizing her parenting.

"terrible mother terrible person raising a terrible kid. It's gna [sic] bite her in the ass when Sophia is older," one follower wrote. Another added, "No-one more trashy and pathetic than you. @CatelynnLowell leaves you in the dust when it comes to parenting."

And of course, Abraham's sex tape came up in criticism of her parenting.
