What are the 'blackfishing' accusations against Teen Mom star Chelsea Houska?

CHELSEA Houska is famously known for her affiliation with MTV's Teen Mom franchise and has been in the spotlight since 2009.

In December 2021, the former 16 and Pregnant star made headlines after she was accused of blackfishing.

What are the 'blackfishing' accusations against Teen Mom star Chelsea Houska?

In December, Houska, 30, posted a picture of herself alongside her daughters Aubree, Layne, and Walker, and fans were quick to notice that her skin appeared to be significantly more tan than the girls.

They later accused her of blackfishing on Reddit, which is known as when someone uses things such as hairstyles and makeup to appear darker than they are.

The original Redditt poster wrote: "Chelsea's girls rocking their natural (albeit insta filtered) colour. Meanwhile their Mam is 1,000 shades of mahogany."

Another Reddit user wrote: "It's weird how people are coming to her defense about her way too dark makeup color/skin color. I guess it rubs me wrong when white girls try so hard to look brown."

A third user suggested: "Maybe she's Spanish," though she is not.

Despite accusations, many fans came to Houska's defense, with one writing: "I'm sure she's a wonderful mother, she just has a ridiculous fake tan."

Another Houska supporter wrote: "Who cares about the damn tan. This is a beautiful picture and I'm sure those kids are happy."
