The "racist" comment was posted under a video of an armed man robbing a driver, taking $1,500 in cash and the driver's cellphone.

It read: "Glad these Asians getting delt with [sic]."

Taylor's name came up as one of the people who liked the cruel comment, as reported by a Teen Mom fan account.

The MTV star defended herself, saying: "This was an accident while I was reporting the comment. I said that on the video and I sent screenshots."

Despite the circumstances, Teen Mom fans called Taylor out for her actions.

"Welp, so much for giving her a chance right!" one wrote, while another asked: "Does this really surprise y'all?"

Taylor was fired by MTV last year after a series of racially insensitive tweets she shared years earlier resurfaced.

In 2012 and 2013, Taylor – then a teen – made a series of controversial comments on Twitter.

The tweets, which were collected by Reddit users last year, were about Black and Asian women.

In one post, she wrote: "We have to greet everyone at work, but sometimes I won't greet the Black people cause they scare me' – I won't say names!"

The reality star also posted: “My uncle is dating an Asian. Aunt Ping please make me sushi.”

Taylor and Cory's baby special was canceled in the wake of the scandal.

The episode was to be a self-shot and an hour-long, chronicling the birth of their first child together amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“MTV pulled [the special] . . . and is ending our relationship with Taylor Selfridge in light of her past racist statements on social media,” an MTV spokesperson told People.

Taylor and Cory welcomed their first daughter, Mila Mae, in April last year and the couple celebrated her first birthday last month.

He is also father to four-year-old daughter Ryder, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Cheyenne Floyd.
