Jenny Mollen is just fine with her social media presence.

The actress came under fire on Friday after posting a photo of herself getting her hair and makeup done while also appearing to be hooked up to an IV.

“Getting full hair and makeup while simultaneously being pumped full of drugs. A triptych,” she jokingly captioned a trio of images on social media.

In an interaction noticed by Comments by Celebs, an Instagram user criticized the mother of two’s choice of words, claiming that she would grow to regret them once the kids she shares with husband Jason Biggs are older.

“There is a difference between ‘drugs’ and ‘medicine’. You’ll regret these captions when the kids get old enough to read. They will come back to haunt you,” the social media user wrote.

Mollen, 39, quickly clapped back, explaining that her jokes aren’t that big of a deal.

“My husband is famous for f— a pie,” Mollen replied, referencing Biggs’ unforgettable scene in 1999’s American Pie. “I think I’m safe w whatever word choice I want.”

The pair share sons Lazlo, 1, and Sid, who will turn 5 in February.

Mollen revealed in an Instagram Story that she had been given Zofran, an anti-nausea and vomiting medication.

Mollen is known for not holding back in her social media posts, including one NSFW shot of her husband she posted last October, which illustrated to her fans just how far Biggs, 40, has come on his sobriety journey.

In the image, Biggs — who had just revealed he was one-year sober — appears to be completely naked, except for a pair of boots, while crawling on his hands and knees.

“#tbt to [Jason] before he was sober,” the mother of two wrote alongside the image.

Pal Chelsea Handler was quick to respond to the photo, writing, “So stooooopid.”

“@chelseahandler I think you were actually present for this shot,” Mollen replied, before responding positively to another social media user who suggested Mollen use the shot as the cover of a future book.

“Omg yes,” she replied.

Opening up about his struggles with sobriety earlier that month, Biggs said that he first tried to get clean five years prior.

“I first tried to get sober over 5 years ago, when the weight of my obsession with booze and drugs became too heavy for me to handle,” the actor captioned a photo of a silver coin that reads, “To thine own self be true,” and has the engraved words “unity, service, recovery.”

Biggs admitted that it had been a battle to stay sober: “Turns out this s— is hard.”

The actor concluded by encouraging those who are also battling addiction to not give up.

“If you’re struggling, know there’s help,” the star wrote. “Don’t be ashamed. We can do this. 💪🙏.”
