TEEN Mom star Ashley Jones’ baby daddy Bar Smith was slammed for posting a fake pregnancy announcement post on April Fools Day.
Bariki, 24, used a photo of a baby scan as he told fans about the “surprise,” tagging his soon-to-be wife and the mom of one.
“Just practicing IDK who’s baby this is,” he wrote in small text on the corner of the post, revealing it had been a joke for April Fools Day.
However, fans did not see the funny side and immediately took to the comments to slam Bar for being “childish” and “disrespectful.”
One angry followers wrote: “I wish grown a** people would stop doing this childish a** prank. Not something to joke about.”

Another added: “Typical insensitive trash behaviour,” as a third chimed in:
“Funny. It’s not like people in real life can’t have kids or anything.”
An angry mom wrote: “One in four women have trouble getting pregnant, this isn’t something you joke about, it’s f***ed up. And you want to be a role model for teen mothers. Disgraceful.”
“Disrespectful,” another said, adding, “This is not a funny joke. It’s callous, harmful and isolating to anyone who has lost a child.”
One simply said they would be unfollowing Bar and Ashley for the April Fools prank, saying: “You are stupid as f***. Unfollowing.”

Bar went on to delete the post from his feed, after it racked up hundreds of irate comments from his following.
It comes after the star slammed MTV for not recognizing him as an “important figure” in a heated Twitter rant.
The reality figure lashed out against the network after they shared a “surprise” teaser for the new season.
