Catelynn Lowell Speaks Out on Amber Portwood Abuse Allegations: Violence Is Never Okay

Back in July, Amber Portwood was arrested on domestic violence charges after allegedly assaulting boyfriend Andrew Glennon.

At the time, several of Portwood’s Teen Mom OG castmates stood by her side, including Catelynn Lowell, who tweeted that fans should wait until they have all the facts and refrain from rushing to judgment.

Of course, Lowell’s comments were made prior to the release of shocking new audio recordings in which Portwood can be heard threatening to stab Glennon.

Now, Catelynn is speaking out again — but instead of defending Amber, she’s defending victims everywhere.

Take a look:

1. The Best of Friends

Few people can relate to the unique struggles Amber and Catelynn have faced over the course of the past decade, so it should come as no surprise that the reality stars developed a close friendship.

2. When Loyalty Creates Problems

So it makes sense that, along with the rest of the Moms, Catelynn’s first instinct was to defend and support her longtime friend.

3. Course Correction

However, that doesn’t make it right — a fact that Lowell now seems to realize.

4. Shocking Evidence

Yes, it’s important to be loyal to your friends, but it’s more important to be loyal to your own code of ethics, and it seems that the newly-leaked audio recordings of Amber and Andrew’s arguments served as a wake-up call for Catelynn.

5. Trigger Warning

In a pair of recordings first obtained by Katie Joy of Without a Crystal Ball, Amber physically attacks Andrew, threatens him with further bodily harm, and fantasizes about him being gang-raped.

6. Horrifying

It’s not hard to see why Catelynn and many others who may have been inclined to side with Amber underwent an abrupt change of heart after listening to the audio.

Amber Portwood Keeps an Arsenal of Weapons In Her House: Should She Be Arrested Before She Hurts Someone?

Back in July, Amber Portwood was arrested for domestic violence.

In his report to police, her then-boyfriend Andrew Glennon revealed that she had attacked him with a machete.

In an audio recording leaked on Thursday, Portwood threatened to stab Glennon.

During their intense argument, he stated that she had recently destroyed a security camera with her sword.

The situation raises many questions, chief among them — why does Amber have so many weapons, and has she lost her damn mind?

Fortunately, The Ashley’s Reality Roundup was able to get to the bottom of these mysteries.

Here’s what we know so far about this increasingly bizarre situation:

1. Angry Amber

Amber Portwood Threatens to STAB Andrew Glennon In Shocking Leaked Audio!

Back in July, Amber Portwood was arrested on domestic violence charges.

The Teen Mom OG star allegedly brandished a machete and attacked her boyfriend, Andrew Glennon, while he was holding the couple’s 1-year-old son.

Despite Amber’s long history of violent behavior, she was defended by numerous supporters, including her co-stars, who repeatedly stated that they did not believe the allegations.

Now, however, an audio recording obtained by the YouTube vlog Without a Crystal Ball proves definitively that Amber was in the habit of physically threatening Andrew and engaging in all manner of verbal abuse.

We wonder what her castmates will have to say now …
