Teen Mom's Mackenzie McKee says she's 'living her best life' after shutting down 'racist claims'

TEEN Mom star Mackenzie McKee declared that she's 'living her best life' on TikTok yesterday after recently shutting down claims she's a 'racist'.

The 26-year-old shared a video of her alongside her kids, husband Josh and some pals as they rented a boat and soaked up the Florida sun together.

At the beginning of the video, a bikini-clad Mackenzie can be heard telling the camera, "so I might just be living my best life".

The MTV star's TikTok then cut to several shots of her children, Josh steering the boat and close-ups of her lying across a bench at the bow of the boat.

Captioning the clip, she penned: "So we rented a boat for the day."

The mother-of-three's post comes after she came under fire earlier this year for using a racial slur while talking about Vice President Kamala Harris.

Mackenzie recently shut down a troll who commented "racist" on a photo of her doing a yoga pose on the beach.

She fired back: "If you think that then why are you following me and spending time out of your day on my page?

"It's reasons like YOU we all can't grow up and move forward. Also actually I don't HAVE to like her. That's the beauty of life."

Mackenzie and Cheyenne Floyd have been clashing since the fit mom called Kamala Harris a "colored woman".

Earlier this month, Mackenzie took to her Instagram story to claim that she's been "written off" for her mistake.

"If we write people off, cut them out and continue with this cancel culture that's not leaving room for growth," the mother-of-three told the camera.

"And if we're not leaving room for growth, we can't unite and come together.

"You guys are all chanting every day 'love', 'choose love', 'let's have peace' – we can't do that if we don't leave room for growth."

In January, Mackenzie made the insensitive comment about the Vice President.

The mom wrote on Facebook: "Sorry, no. There are a lot of amazing women in the world for my daughters to look up to and see as role models. Kamala Harris is not one of them.

"It blows my mind that out of all the amazing colored women in this world, that is the one who is making history.”

While Teen Mom viewers ripped Mackenzie for the comment, her co-star Cheyenne, 28, turned to Twitter to encourage her followers to “educate”.

She tweeted: “It’s time to have a conversation, a form, something to educate and enlighten because the ignorance is pervasive.”

Earlier this month, Mackenzie lashed out at Cheyenne for "cutting off" contact with her after her comment.

She said in a since-deleted Instagram Live: "Cheyenne tweeted that I’m ignorant. I would’ve gone live with her, I would’ve gone on her podcast."

"I talked to Cheyenne, and I thought things were going to be amazing, but it was just a downward spiral from there."

The Oklahoma native then said of her MTV co-star: “I told Cheyenne, ‘I love you.’ 

"And her message back was ‘I have no sympathy for you. Welcome to day 1 of being uncomfortable because of the color of your skin.'"

Mackenzie added: “So if she hates me, that’s fine. That’s fine because I said something ignorant, but I messaged and told her that I love her.

"I said ‘I love you, I want to hold your hand and do this together with you.’ But she decided right then and there she’s done with me. Cut me off.” 

This is not the first time the Teen Mom OG franchise has faced a racism scandal.

Last season, Cheyenne’s baby daddy Cory Wharton’s girlfriend, Taylor Selfridge, was fired from Teen Mom OG last season for resurfaced racist tweets.
