Cheyenne, 29, and ex Cory Wharton, 31, were previously ripped by fans when they claimed their five-year-old daughter set up her own “successful nail company”.
Cheyenne posted a photo to her Instagram of daughter Ryder, five, posing in front of a Nails by Ryder K fingernail polish display.
Ryder, who Cheyenne shares with MTV’s The Challenge alum Cory Wharton, sports freshly polished nails as the Teen Mom star shoots photos and a video of her and their wide selection of colors to promote their beauty brand.
The TV personality captioned the post: “Nails by Ryder K is now in stores at @matteargyle!! If you are in Playa Vista @runwayplayavista go shop our collection.”
She then adds, “tag a store that should carry @nailsbyryderk”.
While Cheyenne’s followers on Instagram were very supportive, fans on Reddit were left unsure of the Teen Mom OG star’s motivations.
On the board, one Redditor commented “the Ryder nail polish thing is weird to me and acting like she’s some child entrepreneur.”
Another person agreed, writing “Right? Like the show isn’t exploitive enough now she’s using her daughter’s ‘love of nail polish [eye-rollling emoji]’ to make more money”.
“And calling her a mini boss [another eye-rolling emoji]”, added a third commenter.

Teen Mom fans have ripped Cheyenne and Cory’s entrepreneurial endeavor in the past when they claimed their young daughter, who at the time was only four years old, set up her own nail polish company.
The Challenge star shared a photo of himself with his arms wrapped around Ryder.
The duo wore black, while Cory donned a serious expression and Ryder pursed her lips for the camera.
The Teen Mom OG star praised his daughter in the caption, writing: “I would say you changed me forever! I love you so much, I love the ambition that you have and you’re only four years old !!! WHAT?!!!”
He then praised her entrepreneur skills, writing: “You already have a successful nail company, you are the true definition of a miniature Boss !!”
The MTV star continued: “Ever since the first time I saw you and you were in a hotdog costume I knew we were a match made in heaven.
“I love watching you continue to be the best big sister & a great role model for your siblings continue to stay cute, continue to stay humble, continue to stay sweet, and continue to have that fire that you have!!!
“I know that you will be successful you just choose whatever you wanna do and we’re gonna do it!”
CHALLENGED BY FANS
While Cory’s Instagram followers praised the post as “so cute,” some critics took to Reddit to rip him and Cheyenne for claiming Ryder launched a company.
While sharing the post, the initial Reddit user wrote: “Are they really trying to act like this nail company is ACTUALLY Ryder’s?”
Others shared similar reactions, as another person wrote: “No shade, but she probably can’t even spell “nails” so how does she own/run a nail company?!!”
The following person commented: “Are they really trying to act like this nail company is actually successful?!”
Another chimed in: “I feel like hyping your four-year-old kid up THIS much is going to do the opposite of keeping them humble.”
The backlash continued as another harshly commented: “Stay humble? A four-year-old doesn’t know what humility is, you idiot.”
An additional person added: “The whole ‘baby boss’ thing is so concerning. She is four years old.”
The mom of two was taken to task when she posted photos of her little girl in a luxury wardrobe during their extravagant Hawaiian family vacation.
As part of her “Hawaii photo dump,” Cheyenne cozied up to her kids in the pool.
The Teen Mom star kneeled down with a drink in one hand, and her other arm wrapped around Ryder.
The mother/daughter duo smiled for the cameras while her youngest son Ace, 10 months, seemed more concerned with the water.
Most notably, Ryder was dressed in a nearly $400 Versace swimsuit.
The white one-piece had blue, pink, and purple butterflies all over it, with the designer logo across the front.
In other photos, Ryder sported a nearly $200 swimsuit from luxury brand MC2 Saint Barth.
Fans flagged how it seems Cheyenne is constantly flaunting her wealth on social media.
On the Reddit board discussing “Ryder’s fingernail polish company”, the creator wrote how [they] HATE the way [Cheyenne] tries to act like a Kardashian or someone really famous.
They then added, “this genuinely might just be me but Cheyenne and family just seem very fame-hungry it’s annoying to watch”.
