'16 and Pregnant' Family: We're Getting Death Threats!

12/4/2010 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The "16 and Pregnant" family who wants to sue MTV now fears for their lives -- telling TMZ, ever since the show portrayed them as cold-hearted relatives, they've been ruthlessly harassed ... and even received death threats.

Kathleen Green (above) -- the grandmother of the teen baby daddy on this week's episode -- tells us, she and her family are being targeted via texts, blog posts, and even Twitter.

Among the harassing messages ... Kathleen claims an anonymous person got a hold of her number and texted her, "You're a piece of sh*t. I'm going to bitch slap you."

But she claims her daughter Katrina -- baby daddy Isiah's mother -- got the worst of it ... because someone threatened her life on Twitter, writing, "We should do a drive by and afterwards we're going to pee on the grandma."

Kathleen claims she's "sick" of being harassed because of the negative way MTV portrayed her and her family -- telling us, they haven't sued yet ... but they're exploring their options.

On sort of a side note, the behavior of the Teen Moms and Dads in itself is frightening. It really isn't their fault though.

Parent's don't properly raise their children anymore. There are no consequence, good or bad.
Young girls aren't learning how to cook, clean and take care of a home.
Young men aren't taught to be a role model, the back bone of the family.
I get so tired of everyone that feels like they are entitled to things just because they are drawing breath on this earth!
If you set goals, sacrifice and work for something you really do appreciate it more!

TO KELLY, YOU ARE SOO RIGHT MTV MAKES THESE KIDS THINK IT OK TO GO OUT AND SCREW. MY NEICE IS PREGNANT (15) ALL SHE TALKS ABOUT IS CONTACTING MTV SO SHE CAN GET ON THIS SHOW. THEY GIVE THESE GIRLS 5000.00 THAT IS HARDLY ENOUGH TO TAKE CARE OF A BABY

Anybody who uses the word "PEE" in a death threat, I wouldn't be too worried lady..

You're more than likely getting your own friends and neighbors to send those threats to aid in helping to file a bogus lawsuit against MTV. Here's a little tip. If you had done your job as a parent your damn self, your kid wouldn't be a slut running around knocking up other teenagers. AS my brother would say, "Dat's whatchu GET!"

Grandma is lucky she hasn't been charged with at least verbal abuse and jailed. The cameras merely recorded what happened in front of them. Those words were hers. Even on the promo she says something abt "that baby not being yours" and "if it's not yours there will be a rumble in the jungle!"

-----------------
I didn't like the grandmother and what she said was horrible, but it was not verbal abuse, you people and your throwing out of terms you hear and always saying people need to be in jail is over the line. You may not have liked what was said, it was mean, but verbal abuse, get over it.

The grandmother has no case to sue.

Make it stop    

Even the family w/the parent that went to jail and rehab isn't claiming they were "made to look bad by mtv". You're a horrible person so deal with it. Nobody but YOU made YOU look BAD.

You got your 30 minutes of fame and it wasn't as glorious as you thought it would be, DEAL WITH IT!! Of course they are going to sue...why is anyone surprised? They are money hungry TRASH!

You deserve everything you get Grandma... the way you treated that girl was disgusting... now you want to try and act as if MTV made u look that way? Did they tell you what to say and how to act? What kind of decent person would have acted that way? You did it to yourself.. You made yourself and your family look like *******s... thats how you'll be remembered! ... Didn't you say at the hospital that the baby looked just like you? But then later you want to embarass the girl at the dinner table and harass her into taking a DNA test? Plus I heard later she took the test for you and you wouldnt pay for the results!! Why not if you think the baby isn't your grandsons?.. You made yourself look like an ass on national tv and now your getting what you deserve... what goes around comes around Grandma! Your going to get back 10X as worse than what you dished out.... Shame your family has to suffer along with you, but then they didn't do anything to stop you did they?, no they joined it so they're just as guilty as you are... But being raised by you, is it really their fault they turned out the way they did... well at some age everybody has to take accountability for their own actions... So maybe its time you take accountability for yours... instead of trying to blame MTV for filming you and then showing that film on National TV... which I'm sure you signed off on them doing... Maybe you see how you are from other peoples perspectives now, and you don't like it... well do something about it Grandma.. get some HELP... try and CHANGE.. recognize you are not a nice person at all... Don't try and be proud of the fact you think u r so REAL... If u r so REAl.. Then DEAL WITH THE REAL RESULTS OF YOUR ACTIONS... Like I said... what goes around comes around... Looks like u were right though.. theres gonna be some rumble in the jungle... only your the one who's gonna catch the rumble Grandma...

Anyone notice there are no adult males in Isiah's family, it is all women. What happened to all the men in his family?

Who'sThat    

I am sure MTV had you sign a waiver when signing contracts and it is their film to do as they please and if you didn't say those words, it would not be filmed.
i do watch this show but haven't caught the new episodes lately so i am not privy to what this family is doing but...

the best thing a couple did is on the first season when this couple placed their child for adoption even if it was the hardest thing ever, they did the right thing for their child since their family is ghetto and they knew it!!

while abortion that someone mentioned is an option, it isn't for everyone so why not try adoption ? to do the right thing by their child to give them the best life possible since they cannot provide...also that will let them continue their lives as kids and to finish school and and college and allow them some freedom as kids!

Were they making Catelynn's mom look bad too? NO! This family knew cameras were rolling and chose to say & act the way they did! They must now deal with those consequences...
