FANS were horrified to see Derek Taylor's response to Jordan Cashmyer's death as the pair share a seven-year-old daughter, Evie.
The 16 & Pregnant star passed away on Sunday, January 16 at the age of 26.
Derek shocked fans when he showed no sadness over the loss of his former girlfriend over the weekend.
The reality star, who shared his seven-year-old daughter Evie with Jordan, gave an unexpected response after fans expressed their condolences on Twitter.
“We didn’t lose anything,” he wrote back shortly.
After many were stunned by his cold answer, he explained his position further on Monday.
“[Genevieve] lost her mom 7 years ago. Whatever damage my daughter was/is going to suffer was set in place 7 years ago,” he asserted.
“Genevieve is better off without her mother. Just as she has been her whole life. Jordan isn’t relevant to my daughters life all the sudden. We’re good over here.”

After receiving backlash for not taking Jordan's death more seriously, he continued his rant.
“Lmao I think I can promise is that my daughter will make better choices than the person who birthed her, why not worry about yourself?" he lashed out.
"You weren’t worried about us 7 years ago when Jordan left… keep that same energy. Me and mine are good!! Always have been! Always will be!”
Derek then addressed Jordan's drug addiction struggles, which plagued their relationship and her parenting.
“Lmao there’s no blood on my hands at all. I didn’t introduce Jordan to drugs. I didn’t encourage Jordan to continue to do drugs.
"I attempted to help her and she didn’t want my help. My family is good regardless of what happened with Jordan," he claimed.
Derek said that even as a teen, he made his daughter's life the priority, though he felt like Jordan never did the same.
“[Jordan] wasn’t my responsibility…. Genevieve was. And I’ve taken care of my responsibilities… even at 19 I made sacrifices to take care of my responsibility.
"Jordan didn’t. She wanted to do her, and I let her; doesn’t get much more ‘manly’ than that,” he shared.
The father of one then hit back at his haters, writing: “This is what happens when your opinion is based on a 40 minute TV show….. Yur right.
"I wasn’t a ‘man’ at 19 years old haha I allowed Jordan to live with me well after the show and attempted to help her get clean.
"She didn’t want to. Her consequences are due to her actions,” he scathed.
Some questioned why he couldn't put their differences aside to put out a kind statement regarding her passing, to which he replied: “A decent statement?
"For a deadbeat mom who was abusing drugs? Society is horrible deadbeat dads get crucified, but a deadbeat mom gets glorified?
"Gtfoh. My statement remains… we didn’t lose anything,” he closed.
"Although he's not wrong it's very insensitive for him to see that. Whether he want to admit it or not 'Evie' is going to want and miss her mom one day," one fan wrote in reply.
"Also she has a sister she may want to connect with one day and comments like that shouldn't be posted on the net.
"The internet NEVER forgets and the comment could come back for him one day," they closed.
A second agreed: "Still sad when a young person loses their life without realizing their value and potential. Still somebody’s child."
Jordan's death was confirmed on January 16, 2022, just months after the death of her fiancé, Michael Schaffer.
The young mom first garnered media attention in 2014 as a cast member on the fifth season of MTV's 16 & Pregnant when she welcomed her daughter Genevieve alongside Derek.
A number of years after Jordan's season aired, she was romantically tied to Michael Schaffer.
Eventually, the two became engaged and welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Lyla, in June of 2021.
Michael passed away on September 9, 2021, and the Maryland coroner's office revealed the cause of death was "heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl intoxication."
Jordan's death devastated family and friends as she had just celebrated one year of sobriety in January 2021.
