"Teen Mom 2" star Briana DeJesus is being called out by some fans for being a racist. The MTV reality star was seen in a recent episode of the reality series revealing that her young daughter, Nova, is getting to an age where she's beginning to notice the difference between her and other children that have different skin colors. Briana says Nova is upset about the way her hair looks and even about the color of her skin. The mom was then forced to have a serious talk with her daughter about race, and the differences between people.

"#Teen Mom 2" fans immediately began calling out Briana for using the term "white" instead of "Caucasian," claiming that her comments were racist and insensitive. DeJesus took to her social media account to fire back, revealing that Nova would have never understood the term Caucasian. Briana, a Puerto Rican woman, says that she is not racist. She had a child with a black man, and claims that her number one goal in life is to "marry a white boy," still not using the term "Caucasian."

DeJesus thinks it's blown out of proportion

It looks like some fans may have gotten a bit too sensitive over Briana DeJesus' talk with her daughter Nova. However, to many people in the country, terminology is everything when speaking about race, gender, and sexual orientation. While the "Teen Mom 2" star seemingly didn't mean to offend any of the viewers, it seems clear that she doesn't want to apologize for something she believes was blown way out of proportion to begin with.
