Fans of Farrah Abraham were wondering if she was still on Teen Mom OG after learning about her accusations of MTV “sex-shaming” and firing her. While Abraham says the network made it impossible to continue on the show because of her career as an adult performer, the network denies those claims. Abraham filed a $5.0 million lawsuit against Viacom, and the matter is now being taken to court.
Farrah Abraham has been a controversial participant on nearly every show she was on, starting with 16 and Pregnant. She has been in the limelight in the past few years because of her regular appearances in MTV’s Teen Mom OG.

Here is what we know about her status on the show.
Farrah Abraham’s MTV Outburst
In late January 2018, Abraham made multiple accusations against MTV in an Instagram post, calling the show “hateful” and “horrible.” She also said that she was moving on from the series.
Abraham, who also works as an adult performer, alleged that MTV canceled her dating show. She said that cast and crew members “always plot, schemes, spew their false, jealousy, hateful, discrimination & harass someone for their sexual freedoms.”
The TV personality wrote on Instagram, “I will no longer allow this hateful, horrible show around my family, it’s sad producers ruin their top leading networks show because they let their ego, politics, hate, discrimination & horrible sexual harassment behavior ruin a show.”
Faced with a Tough Choice
Back in November 2017, Abraham was given a choice to “either pursue her career as an adult video performer or continue to star in the MTV series.”
Abraham was allegedly told, “If you choose to work in the adult industry, we can’t continue to film you.”
Lashing Out in Anger
Needless to say, Abraham did not take this ultimatum kindly and fired back at executive producer Morgan J. Freeman.
Abraham said, “Who are you to tell someone to choose one thing? F**k shoot me for being who I am!”
