CHELSEA Houska was accused of “blackfishing” yet again in new photos.
The Teen Mom 2 alum, 30, has faced recent backlash from fans saying her normally pale complexion looked “way too dark” for chilly South Dakota.

Chelsea has been shaded for the apparent shade of her skin in recent posts.
And on Thursday she appeared very dark as she shared front-facing videos from her car.
“So Cole and I are going out to dinner with our whole team.”
“And it’s just been so fun so I’m excited to have a nice little night with everybody,” she boasted on Instagram Stories as she filmed herself with her long brunette hair down and tan-appearing complexion.
One critic earlier wrote on Reddit when she posted full-body photos over the weekend:
“Oh god the splotchy self-tanner on her hand gave me middle school flashbacks of trying it for the first time.
“Definitely went to school with blotchy orange hands.”
Another added: “This is blackfishing and honestly most white influencers like Chelsea seem to be addicted to tanning to the point where I’m worried it’s body dysmorphia.”
Blackfishing refers to someone pretending to be Black or mixed-race by using things like hairstyling and makeup.
Back in December, Chelsea posted a picture of herself alongside her daughters, and fans were quick to notice that she appeared to be significantly more tan than her children.
It was also 42 degrees Fahrenheit in South Dakota where Chelsea lives on Thursday.
‘RUBS ME THE WRONG WAY’
Another Reddit user earlier wrote: “It’s weird how people are coming to her defense about her way too dark makeup color/skin color. I guess it rubs me wrong when white girls try so hard to look brown.”
A week later, she was compared to fellow MTV alum Farrah Abraham due to her dark skin.
Stars like Ariana Grande have also been accused of it.
Meanwhile, she came under fire last week for letting her daughter Aubree, 12, get a septum piercing.
Cole Deboer and Chelsea are also parents to five-year-old son Watson and one-year-old daughter Walker June.
Chelsea has yet to address the accusations, but as she earlier exclaimed she is in the middle of prepping her new TV show.
The couple announced their departure from MTV in November 2020 but recently revealed that they will be returning to the small screen soon.
The duo scored a brand new reality show on HGTV called Farmhouse Fabulous, which will follow the pair as they help families renovate their homes.
The partners’ new venture comes just months after they finished construction on their brand new South Dakota Farmhouse.
“After building our dream farmhouse in Sioux Falls a few years ago, we realized we have a real knack for design and home reno and it’s evolved into our passion,” the busy father told the outlet.
“We can’t wait to take our fans along this next crazy journey of building our business from the ground up, with four kids in tow, showing all of the highs and lows on the renovation site and at home,” Chelsea added.
Earlier this month, the mom-of-four provided an update on the new series’ premiere date.
While hosting a Q&A session on Instagram, the TV personality replied to a curious fan: “Should air around Spring of 2023,” with a smiling heart emoji.
The darkening look also comes as Mackenzie Edwards was slammed for “copying” Chelsea’s hair and was harshly compared to a “broom” by Reddit.
