'7 Little Johnstons': Amber and Trent Deny Overhyping Jonah's Scary Mishap

7 Little Johnstons fans are still reeling about Jonah Johnston's terrifying experience. The eldest son of Trent and Amber Johnston made a frantic call late at night, leaving the couple scared for their son's safety.

However, not everyone feels sympathetic with Amber and Trent. Apparently, some think the couple was overhyping the situation. Here's what they have to say about it.

7 Little Johnstons: Amber and Trent Give Jonah Much-Needed Support After Scary Incident

In last week's episode of 7 Little Johnstons, Jonah Johnston bravely came clean to Amber and Trent Johnston about his drug use. The young car dealer admitted that he took a synthetic drug called Delta 8 the night he made the disturbing call.

At the time, Jonah sounded slurred and scared. The reality star consumed the same amount his average-sized friends took, which was too much for him to handle. 

Jonah Johnston knew right away that something was off when the drug wouldn't wear off. That was when he got paranoid and called Trent and Amber Johnston.

But instead of getting mad at their son, the 7 Little Johnstons couple showed much-needed support and understanding. Sure, Amber and Trent were shocked about Jonah's act, but their concern and love outweighed them all. 

Still, Amber and Trent wanted to make sure that Jonah would not repeat the same mistake. The two asked their son if this was something they should be worried about in the future. Fortunately, Jonah seemed to have learned his lesson and promised not to do it again.

Fans Accuse Amber and Trent Johnston of Overhyping the Situation

Meanwhile, some fans were not pleased with how Amber and Trent Johnston teased the episode ahead of its broadcast. The 7 Little Johnstons celebs have been accused of exaggerating the situation in hopes of getting more attention.

However, Amber and Trent vehemently denied using Jonah's unfortunate mishap. When a commenter implied that they were "overhyping" it, the couple responded with no hesitation.

"We're totally not!" Amber wrote. "It was a terrifying, horrible, hope we never have to live it again situation,"

Meanwhile, some 7 Little Johnstons fans lauded Trent and Amber Johnston for raising awareness about the infamous substance. The couple noted that a lot of people, including them, didn't know much about it.

"Delta 8 from a gas station is not the same as used for medical/health purposes," Amber Johnston added. "However, it's legal. Frightening!"
