But it’s the designer turban on her head that has drawn the most attention – and criticism.

“Wtf you got on your head? asked a fan on Instagram bluntly.

“I could be down with everything but the helmet,” read one comment on Reddit, while another posted, “Scarves are a big no.”

Some were even offended by the choice of dress.

After a person asks the question: “It goes over to the side of cultural appropriation, doesn’t it?” Another added “This is the whitest commuter turban I’ve ever seen lol.”

Yet others mocked her appearance, comparing her to a fortune teller or a snake charmer.

“Miss Cleo is rolling in her grave,” one person joked.

“Looks like she should have a flute and a cobra in a basket,” another commented.

And one fan summed up the headgear’s failed purpose: “The purpose of a turban is to collect your hair. But of course, what would that uneducated woman know about it?”


Mackenzie has undergone a major transformation over the years and, for the most part, fans have loved it.

Mackenzie recently started proudly showing off her transformation on social media, sharing more photos of herself and glimpses of her fitness regimen, and revealing her transformation from a light blonde to a dark brunette.

Earlier this month, the former reality TV star gave fans a major update on her life.

She shared a photo, looking refreshed with freshly dyed black hair and a deep tan.

The former MTV star wore a hot pink bodysuit and skinny black jeans that showed off her slim figure.

Mackenzie smiled for the camera as she held a cup of coffee in one hand.

The Teen Mom alum wrote in the caption, “2022 is about finding the best version of ourselves. Let go of the past and move on to the future.”


Mackenzie’s new look comes after she was written out of the hit reality show with Ryan, her mother Jenn and her father Larry.

The dismissal was spurred by a fight on camera between the family, Maci and her husband Taylor Kinney during a reunion episode.

Since then, she’s landed a new job in marketing and started her own fitness business.

According to her LinkedIn, Mackenzie started working for Keller Williams Realty as a marketing manager in February 2022.

Mackenzie also filed for a business license for Grail Fitness on April 4, 2021, The Sun confirmed to the Tennessee Secretary of State.

The address listed for the business is a suite located in an apartment building in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

As for Ryan, he makes strollers.


Ryan and Maci are the parents of a Bentley son.

He and Mackenzie share children Jagger, three, and Stella, two.

Mackenzie also has an eldest son from a previous marriage.

She also had to defend herself from pregnancy rumors recently, after sharing her new hair extensions and flaunting her curves in a skin-tight white dress.

A Teen Mom fan commented on the clip: “You look beautiful, girl. Even if you were pregnant, that’s your business.

“You motivate me to continue this weight loss journey.”

MacKenzie quickly replied, “Thanks, lots of laughs! I’m not pregnant. Haha.
