Maci Bookout is asking fans to practice safe sex — but they believe she is the last person who should be promoting birth control! The Teen Mom OG star is coming under fire for her involvement in the campaign despite having THREE accidental pregnancies.

Bookout, 25, posed alongside husband Taylor McKinney and co-star Catelynn Lowell in an Instagram snap to promote the campaign #Thxbirthcontrol.

"Happy parents. Healthy children. Stable families," Bookout's shirt read in the photo.

But fans aren't buying her involvement in the campaign!

"It's funny you have Maci there advising on birth control… The woman openly admits all three of her kids are (happy) accidents," a fan wrote, as another slammed, "Maci should def not be in that campaign. She obviously isn't using any kind of birth control. She keeps popping out babies!"

A third commenter wrote, "Why are you on here? You got pregnant at 16, didn't learn your lesson and got pregnant a few years later (b/c you "thought" you couldn't get pregnant), then got pregnant 3 months after giving birth to Jayde? Playing the 'accident' card makes you no poster child for birth control!"

Bookout became pregnant with her first child Bentley, 8, with ex-fiancé Ryan Edwards at the age of 16.

When Bookout announced her pregnancy with her daughter Jayde, 1, she thought she couldn't get pregnant.

"I didn't think another pregnancy was possible," she told In Touch in December 2014 after being diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome. "We still can't believe it. It was a huge shock, but we are very excited."

After giving birth to her daughter in May 2015, she announced in February 2016 that she was expecting her third child, Maverick, with her now-husband.

On an episode of Teen Mom OG, Bookout was shocked to learn how far along she was in her pregnancy.

Fans even accused Bookout of drinking alcohol while pregnant, as she was spotted holding beers with an obvious baby bump.
