AceShowbiz - Jenna Ortega's mom seemingly calls her out after viral footage and photos featured the actress smoking cigarettes. Making use of her Instagram account, Jenna's mom Natalie Ortega has shared a series of posts warning about the dangers of smoking.
In one of her posts, Natalie, who works as a nurse, shared a meme of Gollum, the emaciated creature from "The Lord of the Rings" movie series. "Don't believe those lies about cigarettes being bad for you. I've been smoking for most my 21 years and I feel great!" the meme read.
The mom of six later posted screenshots of medical facts about the side effects of smoking. That includes lung cancer, damaged teeth and gums, cataracts, brittle bones, smoking stench and oral cancer.
Concluding her social-media schooling, Natalie shared a meme about motherhood. The post read, "A mother is always a mother. She never stops worrying about her children, even when they are all grown up and have children of their own."
Natalie's posts came after Jenna landed in hot water as she was caught smoking cigarettes and drinking wine during her time in London. In the shocking video, the 20-year-old star could be seen smoking while speaking to fellow actress Gideon Adlon.
The video was allegedly taken when the actress was having a mid-day outing in London's Notting Hill. The Wednesday Addams depicter on the Netflix hit series donned a black top and a pair of khaki pants for the casual outing. She completed the look with a matching black shoulder bag and shades that she put on her head.
Upon watching the clip, some Internet users immediately slammed Jenna for her unhealthy habit. "I wonder how people born after 1997 start smoking cigarettes. With all the juuls and vapes available and flavors like cotton candy and gummy bear, what makes you go buy a pack of Marlboros?" one Twitter user questioned. "Smoking full on cigarettes at 20yrs old ???? Crazy."
"Irdgaf that she smokes. But i think non americans have to realize that in the US young people smoking cigs is basically not a thing, it's seen as a very uncool thing to do. Like i didn't realize ppl my age still smoked cigs until i moved to europe and saw how common it was lol," someone else opined.
Some fans, however, defended the actress. "She's literally just smoking as if this generation isn't filled with people that vape 24/7," a fan said. Another pointed out, "Y'all own guns in the U.S but draw the line when someone is smoking a cigarette."
