Amy seemed keen to hide the cigarette from the camera, holding it close to her side and almost out of shot.
However, eagle-eyed fans still managed to catch a glimpse of it and urged the 1000-Lb Sisters star to quit the unhealthy habit.
One wrote in the comments: “Ugh don’t smoke! I lost my mother to cigarettes. Don’t put your children through that! They need you.”
Another added: “Smoking is a slow killer she needs to stop!”
After some fans defended Amy, one user reasoned: “It’s more about Amy’s health.
“We all want her to be healthy and able to raise her boys. It’s not a judgment, it’s out of concern.”
Amy has two sons with her ex Michael Halterman – Gage, two, and Glenn, eight months.
Last year, she admitted she was still smoking while she was pregnant with Glenn but was planning to quit.
Speaking exclusively to The U.S. Sun, she said: “I’m not drinking alcohol.
“I used to smoke a pack of cigarettes a day, like 20, now I’m down to about five a day. I’m trying to cut down.”
Fans of the show are well aware the rest of the family smoke, and although she has tried to switch from cigarettes to vaping in the past, she ended up going back.
Amy has a long list of health problems including high blood pressure, diabetes, and asthma, which have been discussed on the TLC show, but she insists she is trying to live a healthier lifestyle.
She also claims she no longer reads negative comments, saying: “You really can’t look at that stuff. Yes read the positive stuff, but when it comes to the bad stuff, that’s all you dwell on.
“And I’m like, no, I have enough going on. I’m going to do what’s right for him and me, and they can raise their kids how they want. Gage is a very happy baby.”
It has been a tough couple of months for Amy amid her split from husband Michael.
Last month, she filed an order of emergency protection, an order to surrender firearms, and a protective order summons against Michael.
It came just four days after she made an alarming 911 call claiming Michael had become “violent” in their home.
Amy claimed Michael started “throwing things” during a heated argument on Friday, February 24, according to a 911 dispatch document obtained exclusively by The U.S. Sun.
The explosive argument went down just seventeen days before Michael filed for divorce in their local Kentucky court.
Amy and Michael were arguing over their split, the responding officer claimed.
“Amy wants to separate, but the male doesn’t want to,” the report stated.
The 1000-Lb. Sisters star claimed Michael eventually “became violent” and started “throwing things” with Gage and Glenn present in the home.
Neither Michael nor Amy was arrested following the altercation.
In February, The U.S. Sun first reported that Amy and Michael had split after five years of marriage.
Although Amy did not take legal action to file for divorce at first, she moved out of their shared family home and in with her sister Tammy, 36, taking the children with her following the alleged fight.
Earlier this week, the judge ruling over the open domestic violence case amended Amy’s order of protection.
Michael is now allowed contact with their two sons as long as he is supervised.
