Maci Bookout is back and better than ever! This gal gave hardcore Teen Mom fans a look into her life as a single parent in MTV's special Being Maci, and the one-off episode wasn't without its fair share of controversy. Not only did Maci get flirty with her baby daddy, Ryan Edwards, she was shown spanking her son, Bentley!

Maci already took it to Twitter to defend herself for spanking Benny From the Block, but fans are still expressing their concern about her unconventional parenting techniques. After all, spanking is usually considered an out-dated and over-the-top form of discipline, and some parents think Maci should reconsider her decision to spank Bentley.

This gal knows how to hold her own (haters gonna hate), but that hasn't stopped her Teen Mom co-star, Tyler Baltierra, from rushing to her defense. "Dude people are ridiculous," he tweeted to Maci. "I was spanked as a child & I turned out FINE! If you didn't give birth 2 Bentley, SHUT UP! #Damn."

Yikes, Tyler just dropped an entire can of whoopass. While his point is valid, let's not forget that Maci voluntarily allowed cameras to film her punishing Bentley, and she definitely opened herself up to criticism by doing so! Do you agree with Tyler and think spanking is no biggie, or do you think it's an unnecessary form of punishment?
