Taking a step back. Bristol Palin’s ex-husband, Dakota Meyer, rescinded his negative remarks about her appearing on Teen Mom OG.

“Regarding my comment tonight on @teenmom insinuating that Bristol has put anything before the kids was wrong and tasteless,” Meyer, 30, captioned an Instagram photo of Palin, 28, reading to their daughters Sailor, 2, and Atlee Bay, 19 months, on Monday, December 10. “It’s the furthest thing from the truth and I apologize to her and the kids for that.”

Meyer made headlines on Tuesday, December 4, for slamming the hit MTV show as “trailer trash” on Twitter and suggesting that it doesn’t showcase “what single parenting looks like.” He addd via Instagram at the time: “It’s time to call it what it is @teenmom parenting is way more than everyone sitting around bitching about their ex’s.”

Although Palin — who split from the Afghanistan veteran in February after nearly two years of marriage — didn’t respond to her ex’s diss, she voiced her own disapproval of the show on Monday.

“If I cared what people thought of me, I wouldn’t be here today — let’s be real. I’ve stood strong and held it down for my kids since day one. No matter how bad @teenmom tries to portray my ‘life,’ ….. my babies, my family, my close friends — they know the TRUTH,” she wrote alongside a snapshot of herself with Sailor, Atlee Bay and son Tripp, 9, who she shares with ex-fiancé Levi Johnston. “I’m a pretty great mom, work my ass off, show up, and hustle everyday to give my kids a pretty great life. @mtv doesn’t want to talk about faith, show work ethic, or juggling three kids alone, they don’t want to show the humble process of starting over after a divorce, building a career, or any real life issues. All they want with my little segment each week is some fake fill-in Farrah Abraham/Jerry Springer BS, and it’s simply not true.”

“Don’t get me wrong — I’ve said some mean things and learned a lot the last several months — but the life I’ve built for my kids is NOT sitting around talking about baby daddy drama,” she continued. “Every week is a combined disappointment with their inaccuracies and false narratives. I hate getting all emotional on you guys but I’ve kept quiet for too long about it. Don’t believe everything you see on TV.”

In July, Palin confirmed that she would be joining Teen Mom OG for season 7.
