A Teen Mom fan screengrabbed a frame from the episode of the long-running series and posted it on Reddit.

The Redditor titled the post: "I’m sorry for another one of these posts but UGH…. It’s bad enough she’s in a booster let alone not even having the chest strap on."

The screenshot shows Ryder, five, sitting in the backseat of, Cheyenne's ex and her father, Cory Wharton's car.

The five-year-old sits inside a child's booster seat with her seatbelt strap tucked behind her back.

The comment thread quickly filled with worry for Ryder and complaints surrounding Cheyenne, 29, and Cory, 31.

One person wrote: "Please tell me they weren’t driving with her in the seat like that!"

"Yikes. If they get in a wreck with her strapped in like this, she’s going to get seriously hurt," commented another.

A third fan added: "Ughhh I want to like Chey too."

"I just watched this episode and this was when she was in Cory's car! So his fault not hers for this," responded another fan.

A fourth Redditor wouldn't let Cheyenne off the hook so easily, as the commented: "Fair enough, but if I wasn't with my baby daddy, I'd be on him about car seat safety. I have seen Chey have her not strapped properly tho. It's amazing how they all suck with car seat safety."

"The lack of car seat safety in this show is appalling," chimed a fifth.

While another commenter stated: "Corey wasn’t wearing his seat belt at all so not surprised he doesn’t have hers probably secured."

As a sixth person added: "She’s [five]. I really doubt she is truly big enough for a booster seat only. She should at least be in a high back booster, I believe. Do better, Cory."


Another fan took a jab at Cheyenne's fiancé Zach Davis, 31, when they wrote: "Booster is the least of that kid's worries. If I was Chey and made the decision to stay with a** wipe, I’d be getting the kid a bulletproof vest."

The fan is, of course, referring to the shooting that nearly killed her and her family.

The reality star was in the car with Zach and her two children, Ryder and Ace, when a gunman opened fire on them.

During Tuesday's brand new episode of Teen Mom: The Next Chapter, fans watched as Cheyenne tried to cope in the aftermath of the scary incident.

After reaching out to Maci Bookout, 31, who has also struggled with gun-related trauma, Cheyenne and her family decided to visit a rage room.

They smashed all they could before sitting down for a candid conversation, which left the mom of two in tears.

The MTV star confessed that she was having a hard time with respect to her children after the shooting, specifically her older child Ryder, whom she feared may be struggling more than she let on.

Through tears, she admitted: "I get that we’ll be fine, but it’s just hard because of the kids. With Ryder, it’s like her innocence was taken. This stole everything that I feel like I’ve worked towards.

"It just feels like this girl just keeps getting the s**t end of the stick and it’s her life, it’s my life and as her parent am I doing everything I can to protect her?"

Then, in a tear-filled confessional, she reflected on being in the car at the time of the shooting.

She recalled: "When I look at what happened to us, I could hear Ace crying. I could hear him. I knew that even if something had happened to him he was alive but I couldn’t hear Ryder and it just kills me that I couldn’t hear her."

Cheyenne continued: "I just needed her to just say something – just say something – but she wouldn’t say anything and I cannot get that out of my head. You might have taken her innocence that day and you might have changed me but that little girl is my life and I refuse to let anyone take that from me."


Cheyenne and Zach previously talked about the shooting during the premiere of The Next Chapter.

Fans knew prior to the episode that the mom of two had to undergo surgery for a health issue, but she didn't share any further details. 

Cheyenne confessed: “From the outside, my life looks perfect but to be honest I haven’t been transparent about what’s really going on."

She then appeared before the camera with Zach by her side, preparing for a somber moment as they shared the troubling details of the shooting they were involved in. 

Her baby daddy kicked things off, sharing with viewers: “We woke up. Ryder had an appointment with the doctor. Ace had his first checkup. We were just riding with music playing like normal car day and Chey looks at me, and she goes, 'what is that?' and there was a green beam on my face."

Cheyenne then jumped in, adding: "When I saw the green beam on Zach’s face, I looked past it. I was just in complete and utter shock."

Zach then spoke directly to viewers again, recalling: "I looked at who was holding the gun and it was somebody we both knew. Not only is it just we know him, he’s been here at Chey’s house. There are pictures with him and all of a sudden we just start hearing shots."

He added: "He hit the car 13 times and we crashed into the back of a Prius. Pried my door open and it was the worst feeling in the world."

The mom of two then began getting emotional, holding back tears as she said: "It is a miracle that we are still here and God literally covered us that day because every cop who was there said that they do not understand how we’re all alive."

The reality star added: "And hearing it over and over and over again I just wanted them all to stop saying it because I had to pinch myself to make sure that I understood that I was alive."
