Yellowstone TV star Jen Landon is speaking out about the latest controversy in her latest Instagram story.

According to NBC News, the Norwegian women’s beach handball team received a $1,700 fine for not playing in bikinis during a game in the Euro 2021 tournament. The team opted out from the usual bikini uniform to wear thigh-length elastic shorts during their match against Spain. The switch was a way to protest against the regulation bikini bottom design. The handball’s Norwegian Federation President describing the regulation as being embarrassing. 

In her Instagram story, the Yellowstone acror screenshots a news article with the caption “A women’s handball team wore shorts instead of skimpy bikini-bottom uniforms. The league fined them over $1,700.” She responds with, “Well this is INSANE.”

The Yellowstone actress then says, “In case you missed this insanity; I guess picking a wedgie out of your butt rack during game time is essential to pro volleyball according to the league. 

Jen Landon Talks Playing Teeter on ‘Yellowstone’ 

In an August 2020 interview with Decider, Jen Landon shares details about her role on the hit series Yellowstone. “[The show] is amazing. I’m a lunchbox actor. Each job is a job fought for and a job got,” Landon explains. 

Landon’s Yellowstone character, Teeter, is a ranch hand at the Yellowstone Dutton Ranch, which is run by John Dutton (Kevin Costner).  Speaking about Teeter’s appearance on the show, Jen describes the character as gender-defying in a lot of ways. “The pink hair was in the character description based on somebody Taylor [Sheridan] knows.”

Jen then says what wasn’t in the Yellowstone character’s description was dipping tobacco, which was inspired by her audition when she chewed gum instead of dip. “One of the things I’ve been clear about from the beginning is that the way Teeter speaks is not representative of a region or a state or anything.”

Jen also states that she and Taylor have discussed the Yellowstone character’s backstory and about how she’s from a. Family of very rural sheep farmers. “We decided that probably only her family speaks that way because they’ve spent generations on that same farm.”

In regards to Teeter’s fearless personality, Jen adds that the Yellowstone personage’s courage gives her courage. 

When is the Hit Series Returning for Season 4?

There has yet to be a solid answer as to when Yellowstone will return for its 4th season. The hit drama series was renewed for its upcoming season in February 2020. Paramount has yet to announce the release date.

Paramount recently announced new characters are now on the Yellowstone roster. Jacki Weaver is portraying CEO of Market Equities Carolina Warner; Piper Perabo is taking on the role as a Portland-based protester; Kathryn Kelly is a vet tech; and Finn Little will place a teen that seemly reminiscent of a young Rip Wheeler.
