While the actual physical smack was not shown, it was implied that Maci was smacking Bentley when he was misbehaving during a trip to the bowling alley and she took him into a bathroom stall and a couple of whacks were heard.
Maci knew the incident was going to ruffle a few feathers before the show even aired, and tweeted, "im gonna catch a bunchaaa shit for spanking bentley.... #parenting."
As she predicted, that's exactly what happened. Immediately after the incident aired, fans began attacking Maci on Twitter.
Still, Maci stands behind her chosen method of discipline in the situation, and wrote, "i got my spanked as a kid for being a brat when i knew better.. so questioning this is questioning my parents and i take offense to that."
What do you think of Maci spanking Bentley?
