Maci's page of large, looped writing read: "Your heart is the softess part of you.

"Do not leave it unhealed, do not leave it unloved."

Yet as soon as she uploaded the short video to her page, fans flooded her comments calling out the spelling error, which saw her spell the word softest as softess.

One Instagram user then joked: "You've been arrested by the grammar police girl," as she replied: "Ima need some bail money, call T."


Yet one user then moaned: "The softness is killing me," followed by an angry Emoji face.

Another quickly wailed: "Oh man!!!! SOFTEST!!"

One added a capital letter to emphasize their point as they added: "SoftesT" while one bluntly quizzed: "Softess?"

Yet the mom of three addressed their harsh words when she wrote in the video caption: "Here's another one… Because I am too critical of myself and T told me “I'd be silly not to post this!”


"YES, I know 'softest' is misspelled. I get focused on one thing and don't focus on everything and/or one mistake…

"Hence the “I am too critical.” I just want to show that with practice, anyone can learn lettering!"

It is not the first time the MTV star has posted a snippet of her new, stress-busting writing hobby.

Her Instagram videos have prompted many of her supporters to quiz where they can buy her pen products from, and even if they can buy her own creations directly.


The reality star, 29, appears to be embarking on a more positive life path after she opened up about developing post-traumatic stress disorder when she "witnessed a shooting" and "thought she was going to die."

In a preview clip for the upcoming season of Teen Mom OG, Maci opened up about the terrible moment her life flashed before her eyes as she witnessed a shooting.

As she sits with her husband, Taylor McKinney, outside their home, he asked her how she was doing since the shooting.

She tells him: "I literally thought I was going to die."


Part of Maci's storyline this season will focus on her dealing with the aftermath of the shooting.

The mom of three apparently witnessed a "shooting at a gas station" which has left her "shaken" ever since.

The teaser also discloses that despite her mixed feelings on the matter, Maci is going to "put her personal feelings aside" and support her son Bentley, 12, as he seeks therapy.

Meanwhile, she has revealed her plans to adopt a fourth child with husband Taylor, to whom she has been married for five years.
