Teen Mom 2 is back tonight with season 2 of the groundbreaking show that follows the lives of four teenage girls struggling to finish school, make ends meet, and balance family and friends–all while raising a child. From how they respond to bullying and name-calling to the biggest life lessons learned, we wanted to know how Jenelle, Kailyn, Leah and Chelsea manage their lives–when the cameras are off.

First up, the cast responds to comments they get online. “Someone sat there the other day on Twitter and called me a dirtball,” Jenelle laughed before adding, “I think we all get equal amounts of hate.” Watch:

As our good ol’ friends at We Stop Hate say, teens who are happy with themselves don’t put others down. And it doesn’t only happen to Teen Mom‘s Jenelle, Kailyn, Leah and Chelsea. In a recent survey, 76 percent of girls responded that they knew a friend who had been bullied!
