Not to celebrate someone else’s misfortune but this one is definitely more than deserved! We have learned that amid Teen Mom stars boycotting the show in protest and fans petitioning for him to be let go, Jenelle Evans’ husband, David Eason has been officially fired!
As you may know already, David enraged social media for two different reasons in the span of only a couple of days!
After being slammed for sharing a pic of Jenelle posing with a rifle the same day the Florida high school tragedy happened, the whole thing took a turn for the worse.
Not only did the man refuse to take the photo down and fired back at people criticizing him but he ended up turning the discussion on whether or not he’s a good parent for having unnecessary weapons around his kids into a homophobic and transphobic rant!
‘Lmao why don’t you go tell the homo and transgender parents to start teaching their kids better morals? Oh, I forgot that’s supposed to be normal,’ David tweeted among other offensive things.
MTV released an official statement today that read: ‘David Eason’s personal comments don’t reflect the views of MTV. With six weeks left of production on ‘Teen Mom 2,’ effective immediately, we’re ending our relationship with him.’
In the meantime, we know that the execs are still deciding whether or not they will fire Evans as well as her record is not exactly clean either.
After the backlash, both Eason and Evans deleted their Twitter accounts.
Before that, Jenelle tried to defend her husband’s words, but it just made everything so much worse!
‘David did not understand how offended people would get or how Twitter works. Now that he realizes his voice’s very strong within the media/tabloids he’s deactivated his account. He agrees he’ll keep his comments to himself from now on.’
Not only did she pretty much reinforce the idea that he is indeed a homophobe but went on to claim that she had a gay manager once and they were both friends with him, so everything’s peachy or something!
Are you glad David was fired due to his hate speech? Do you think Jenelle should get axed as well?
