  • Mama June's husband Justin Stroud broke his silence and responded to the hate comments on his social media account
  • The tattoo artist said he is not doing something right if haters are "not hating"
  • He added that people are spreading hate because he is doing well in life

Mama June Shannon's husband Justin Stroud broke his silence while the reality star was at the hospital following a health scare.

The 34-year-old tattoo artist took to social media Thursday to address the critics who keep leaving negative comments on his posts because of his marriage to the 43-year-old reality star.

In a video he uploaded, Stroud is seen outdoors, mouthing the lyrics of Kevin Gates' "Imagine That" while showing off his bling.

"I'm as loyal as they come. People hate because I'm doing good in life and say everything I have is because of my wife, like I'm not my own person. Truth is they really hating because they envy me and her," read an overlay text he wrote over the clip.

"Living my best life while they hate. People hate no matter what, without knowing the struggles I [have] been through and the pain I've overcome. But as long as I keep striving for greatness and have my best friend and love of my life, it doesn't matter," he added.

Stroud posted the same video twice on his Instagram and wrote different captions for each. In his first post, he insisted that he was not doing something right if haters "ain't hating."

"People hate more when [you're] doing great [in] life. Continue to smile and strive to be everything you wanted," he captioned his second post.

Stroud's posts came just a day after his wife was hospitalized following a health scare. In an exclusive interview with TMZ, Mama June revealed Wednesday that she was staying at the hospital for some medical tests.

According to the "Mama June: Road to Redemption" star, her doctor advised her to get admitted to the healthcare facility after she complained about severe headaches and dizziness during a routine visit. Mama June's official diagnosis has not been revealed.

Mama June and Stroud secretly tied the knot on March 23. They are celebrating their six-month anniversary as a married couple this month. Despite her health issue, the reality star paid tribute to her husband on Instagram to mark the milestone.
