The former Teen Mom 2 star, David Eason, who is currently the husband of Jenelle Evans, called out MTV on the 20th of July for casting Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol, on the latest season of Teen Mom OG. Previously, MTV gave Eason the ax for tweeting homophobic remarks.
In a post, Eason said that he knows “MTV is comprised of hypocrites,” but he asked how could they possibly hire Palin who, according to Dave, has a history of homophobic and racist comments? You can check out his original Instagram post below.
Admittedly, however, Eason says he doesn’t have anything against Palin personally, but it’s a matter of an unfair double standard. The former reality star said that MTV was “liberals trying to confuse, persuade, and penalize.”
As it was previously reported, MTV released a statement in February announcing they were effectively dropping Eason from their roster. A network spokesman said that his comments “do not reflect the views of MTV.”
Regarding the supposed remarks Bristol made, according to Us Weekly, Palin has been embroiled in a number of different cases of homophobia and racism.
She wrote in a 2012 blog post that “sometimes” fathers should be the ones who lead their family. While Palin didn’t say anything overtly homophobic or racist, fans interpreted them in that manner. Palin also claimed that young teenagers were impressionable and easily persuaded by episodes of Glee, insinuating that the show was perpetuating a gay lifestyle.
As for the other homophobic remark, Bristol apparently laughed when her child referred to his aunt as a “f*ggot.” However, she addressed those reports later and said that he “used a different F-word.”
While some people who dislike the Palins say she is guilty, others on social media had her back at the time. When the controversy first came out, a fan wrote online, “I don’t think she said anything that was that homophobic. It was just her opinion.”
