MACKENZIE McKee said she's a victim of "cancel culture" after her feud with Cheyenne Floyd over a racial slur. 

The Teen Mom OG star, 26, previously claimed Cheyenne has "cut her off" after she called Vice President Kamala Harris a "colored woman" in a Facebook post.

Mackenzie took to TikTok for a message to "all the moms," as she said: "When you are a mom… and that child makes one little mistake because they're human and that's what humans do, do we let that define everything about them? Do we automatically dismiss all the good they do… and we cancel them?

"And we cancel them and they are now known for that one mistake they did and we blow that up and focus on that little mistake? No. Because we're smarter than that…"

She added: "So, why are we doing that to other people? Why do we blow up every little mistake they do and dismiss all the hard work they put in or dismiss where there heart truly is?

"Why do we dismiss all the mistakes we've ever made and just cancel people?"

The MTV star previously said: "I’m still confused why I can’t get on and stay sorry from my heart. 

“We need to get rid of racism and racial injustice, but I’m not racist. 

“Cancel culture is too big, we’re canceling people left and right… But if she (Cheyenne) wants to hate me, she can. I said something ignorant."

Mackenzie had also responded to a troll who called her "racist" during the star's feud with Cheyenne. 

The 26-year-old quickly clapped back at the troll and said: "If you think that then why are you following me and spending time out of your day on my page? 

"It's reasons like YOU we all can't grow up and move forward."

"Also actually I don't HAVE to like her. That's the beauty of life.”

In a Teen Mom episode, Mackenzie spoke with a social rights activist from Color Of Change to educate herself more on her racially insensitive comments.  

She was asked: “What are some of the things you feel like you’ve learned since you said that?”

Mackenzie replied: “My privilege. I used to say ‘how am I privileged I’ve been through hard things too.’ 

“But I realized I never had it hard because of my skin color.

In January, Teen Mom fans labeled Mackenzie racist when she the Vice President a “colored” woman on her Facebook page.

The mom wrote: "Sorry, no. There are a lot of amazing women in the world for my daughters to look up to and see as role models. Kamala Harris is not one of them.

"It blows my mind that out of all the amazing colored women in this world, that is the one who is making history.”

While viewers ripped Mackenzie for the comment, her co-star Cheyenne, 28, got on Twitter to encourage her followers to “educate.”

She tweeted: “It’s time to have a conversation, a form, something to educate and enlighten because ignorance is pervasive.”

Mackenzie lashed out at Cheyenne for "cutting off" contact with her after her comment and she said in an Instagram Live: "Cheyenne tweeted that I’m ignorant.

"I would’ve gone live with her, I would’ve gone on her podcast. 

"I talked to Cheyenne, and I thought things were going to be amazing, but it was just a downward spiral from there."

The Oklahoma native then said of her co-star: “I told Cheyenne, ‘I love you.’ 

"And her message back was ‘I have no sympathy for you. Welcome to day 1 of being uncomfortable because of the color of your skin.’"
