There’s been an ‘unexpected’ shakeup in the world of TLC’s Unexpected.
Hailey “Hailey 2” Tilford revealed that she will no longer be appearing on the upcoming fourth season of the reality show. While several of the show’s cast members have decided not to return for Season 4, the decision not to have Hailey 2 on the show was made by ‘Unexpected’ producers, not Hailey herself.
In a message posted to Instagram on Saturday, Hailey—- who shares son Levi with ‘Unexpected’ dad Matthew Blevins— revealed that she had just been informed that she’s being dropped from the show, due to some racial messages found on her Instagram account.
According to Hailey, though, she did not write the messages in question and instead stated that they were posted by a hacker last year. Despite pleading her case to producers, Hailey 2 was still given the boot.
“So I just wanted to make this post because some things need to be cleared up,” Hailey wrote on Instagram. “I just got off the phone with the producer of ‘Unexpected’, apparently I’m not allowed to film or appear on the show because of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ situation going on because it may offend people. About 8 months ago my Instagram got hacked and I made a whole new account. Well whoever hacked my account messaged back an black female comparing her to a ‘monkey.’ Anyone who knows me PERSONALLY knows for a fact I would NEVER say that, that is beyond disrespectful.”

So I just wanted to make this post because some things need to be cleared up. I just got off the phone with the producer of Unexpected, apparently I’m not allowed to film or appear on the show because of the “Black Lives Matter” situation going on because it may offend people. About 8 months ago my Instagram got hacked and I made a whole new account, well whoever hacked my account messaged back an black female comparing her to a “monkey” anyone who knows me PERSONALLY knows for a fact I would NEVER say that, that is beyond disrespectful. I have NO problems with black people and I support them during this all going on! We all deserve to be treated equally! They want to film Levi (my son) without me and as a mother I just don’t find that right. My ex (Levi’s father) has said SEVERAL offensive things all over social media but he is filming on the TV show. With that being said, I WILL NOT be allowing my son on a TV show that puts me out to be “racist” when I’m NOT. Kinsley and Levi WILL have a sibling relationship, I won’t ever stop making an effort for that to happen. Once again, I SUPPORT ALL BLACK LIVES.
“I have NO problems with black people and I support them during this all going on!” she continued. “We all deserve to be treated equally!”
Hailey went on to reveal that the show’s producers still want to film her infant son, Levi, but she will not be allowing it. Hailey told a person in the comment section of her post that the producers will allow her to be present while Levi is being filmed; however, she can’t be on camera.
“They want to film Levi (my son) without me and as a mother I just don’t find that right,” she said, adding that it’s unfair that Matthew has posted numerous offensive things to social media in the past but is still being allowed to film with Hailey “Hailey 1” Tomlinson, his other baby mama (and Hailey’s friend) with whom he shares daughter Kinsley.
“My ex (Levi’s father) has said SEVERAL offensive things all over social media but he is filming on the TV show,” Hailey 2 wrote. “With that being said, I WILL NOT be allowing my son on a TV show that puts me out to be ‘racist’ when I’m NOT. Kinsley and Levi WILL have a sibling relationship, I won’t ever stop making an effort for that to happen. Once again, I SUPPORT ALL BLACK LIVES.”
Some of Hailey’s followers pointed out in the comment section of the post that Matthew has said the N-word on social media numerous times, but Hailey says his smiling mug will still be featured on the new season of ‘Unexpected,’ which she says is coming this summer.
“Sadly he will be back on your screens in August for season 4 lol,” Hailey 2 told the person.
It appears that the producers behind ‘Unexpected’ are carefully inspecting the lives of their cast members both on- and off-line, just like Viacom is doing for the cast members of the Teen Mom franchise. As The Ashley told you on Friday, moms and dads featured on both Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 are being forced to undergo complete background checks, as well as “social media reviews” done by a third-party company to ensure there is nothing “problematic” lurking on their current and/or old accounts.
Several reality stars have recently been fired when their racially offensive social media posts came under review. This includes ‘Teen Mom OG’ star Taylor Selfridge and Dee Nguyen of The Challenge. Four stars from Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules were also axed due to their online and off-line racist actions.

I think I read they only pay them $400 per episode?!!
It’s annoying that only certain people are getting the ax. Why isn’t Jax? Why isn’t Cheyenne?
The old I was hacked bs story.
So this idiot was hacked, but the only thing this hacker did was make one racist comment. Sounds believable.
Exactly! If someone were to hack her account, the most obvious target would be for her to trash Hailey #1.
Second, her response was very telling. She’s basically saying the old “I’m not a racist because I have a Black friend” line… the “Black Lives Matter “situation”? Try movement, or anything that doesn’t sound like something derogatory. And she has “no problems with Black people” just doesn’t sound right. The ultimate statement was when she compared her “hacked” post to Matthew’s posts… she basically said that if he can do it then she ought to be able to as well.
Nice try, Hailey… hope those babies grow up a little more enlightened then their parents.
Am I confused or isn’t this the same chick who has said multiple times that she “refused” to go back on this show because she was “better than that”. That the show “wanted her” but SHE said no. Liar liar pants on 🔥 fire
She is right about one thing, I have personally seen little boy Matthew say extremely racist things on IG live-how he still has a job I don’t know. I could be wrong but I believe Hailey #1 was also caught saying some racist things on IG live as well. But, what can we expect? It’s MTV after all. SMH
Actually it is TLC not MTV. But TLC is no better.
Oh! Thank you! You are right…between mtv, Bravo, vh1, tlc…my head spins!
For someone who said she was never filming again, she seems pretty upset about not filming again…
Obviously her account was hacked again when she said that 🤣🤣🤣🤣.
I dont want to watch a girl who sleeps with her best friends boyfriend.
I really dont want to watch the little self entitled small boy who thinks he’s a man. He is trash in my book.
Cancel her. Last thing I want to see is another white trash. Sorry not sorry.
