Maci, 29, shared a distressing image on Twitter recently, depicting Kailyn Lowry in tears as Javi Marroquin laid injured in the hospital.
The father of two appeared badly hurt, as his face was bright red and covered in bruises with an IV up his nose.
The photo itself was actually from an old episode of Marriage Bootcamp in 2017 when the ex-couple practiced an empathy exercise.
The reality star captioned her post: "Kail reveals devastating cancer news," with a heartbreak emoji and included a link to another site.
Maci's fans were highly confused by her share, as many claimed she was propagating "click bait."
One took to Reddit to express their distaste, writing: "Every time someone wonders why I dislike Maci so much… back at it with the clickbait!"
Others joined in to agree, racing to the comments to slam the TV personality for her "shameless" behavior.
"This is terrible!" one wrote, while a second asked: "What is the point of this?"
"Maci is everyone's favorite outside of Chelsea and although I'm not a Chelsea fan Maci is way too trashy to be compared to Chelsea. She is absolutely shameless when it comes to making money," another ranted.
A final scathed: "These posts are so disrespectful and triggering for people going through real cancer scares, etc.
"She and Cait need to grow up and find a better way to make their $100."
Maci and her husband Taylor McKinney have faced scrutiny of late after her ex Ryan Edwards was fired from Teen Mom OG.
Ryan, his wife Mackenzie, and his parents Larry and Jen were all axed from the TV show, and have blamed Maci for their removal.
Their firing came after a blowup argument between Larry and Taylor, as the two men fought over Mackenzie and Ryan's son Bentley.
Earlier this week Maci seemed to shade her baby daddy when she shared a post reading: "Outgrow your own bulls***."
The mom of three captioned her photo: "If every. damn. body. doesn't need to see this, then I'll happily soak this one up all on my own!"
The MTV star has been feuding with Ryan and his parents for years, as their 12-year-old son has faced estrangement from his father for drug and alcohol abuse and absent parenting.
Maci also recently revealed on Kailyn Lowry's podcast, Baby Mamas No Drama that Bentley sometimes calls his step-father Taylor his dad.
"Sometimes [Bentley will] call [Taylor] T-Money, sometimes he'll call him Taylor," she confessed.
"Sometimes – it's not extremely often – but if he's talking to the younger kids he'll just call him Dad. If it's just us adults and Bentley, it's usually T-Money."
After Ryan was fired, he spoke exclusively to The Sun about Maci's reasoning.
"Maci is in fear that my mom and dad will start telling the truth. She will always fight to have us off the show.”
Despite MTV leaving the door open for the family to one day return, Ryan has squashed the possibility.
“MTV does not really stand for anything we believe in or support.”
