Tyler Baltierra has no business talking about Catelynn Lowell's weight

Baltierra and Lowell have always been the crown jewels of Teen Mom. They're perhaps the only couple who seems to talk out their emotions, make decisions together and have come together out of pure love. (I'm a fan!)

He goes on to "jokingly" insult Lowell, saying "It's your body, you do what you want. I mean, obviously I don't want no heifer for a wife." Lowell laughs, but producer Jessica jumps in calling his words harsh. That's an understatement. His words, especially when masked in the language of everyday conversation, are clearly the opposite of leaving his wife to make her own choices surrounding her body.

From commenting on how much and what she's eating to suggesting that she's getting overweight, the conversation is a textbook example of how not to let a significant other (or friend or anyone for that matter) treat you. What happened to the sweet, caring Tyler who cried at the diner with his Catelynn? Let's get him back ASAP.

Update: After facing public backlash, Baltierra took to Twitter — not to apologize — but to defend the way he talks to Lowell.

Lowell also put her two cents up on Twitter to address the issue.
