The 29-year-old took to Instagram on Tuesday to share a photo of three-year-old Lux sitting in a chair at a hair salon after he got his hair braided.
While a number of her Instagram followers took to the comments section to praise Lux as “cute,” others headed to Reddit to slam the reality star.
One Teen Mom 2 fan wrote: “She’s such a piece of s**t and I feel so terrible for her children.”
Many Reddit users also recalled Kailyn slamming her son Isaac’s baby daddy Jo Rivera for giving their son a buzz cut, stating that he “didn’t look white” with the haircut.

Another fan said: “I think she was just mad that Jo got his hair cut and that she wasn’t in control.”
A third chimed in: “What kills me about that scene is Isaac literally just had a freaking buzz cut. The same haircut that every little toe headed white boy gets in the spring/summer for baseball season. Her comment made zero sense.”
A following person added: “Yeah…she has really changed her opinion about ethnically appropriate hair styles for children of more than one background, hasn’t she? Which is GOOD and we all need to grow and change for the better…but it’s super embarrassing that she wouldn’t acknowledge that, while posting this…”

Others claimed Kailyn treats her sons differently, writing: “I am glad that Lux is ‘allowed’ (I feel gross using that word here but I can’t think of a better way to phrase it) by her to have an ethnic hairstyle. But goddamn, her comments to Jo about Isaac’s hair were disgusting and racist. I hope she has grown as a person since then but who f**king knows with her.”
An additional Reddit user said they doubt Kailyn has changed since making the insensitive comment about Isaac, stating: “The people who think she has grown from what she said about issacs hair are cracking me up. If anything she’s gotten worse.”
During a previous episode of Teen Mom 2, Jo spoke to his wife Vee about a text message he received from Kailyn about Isaac’s haircut.
Jo read the text out loud that read: “He’s too young for that. He’s half white.”

When Jo asked what Isaac being half white had to do with the haircut, she responded: “Little white boys don’t get their hair cut like that. It doesn’t look right on him.”
Jo later confronted Kailyn and asked her why she made the comments.
Kailyn replied: “When he goes over there, you have him dress a certain way. You have him look a certain way. You have his hair cut a certain way and that’s not who he is.
