Teen Mom 2 stars Jenelle Evans and David Eason have found themselves in some hot water over the past week, and the young couple tried to apologize for their disgusting actions, and it looks like MTV is not having it. They have officially cut ties with David Eason after his recent homophobic rant, could Jenelle be next?
After his rant, Evans immediately went on to social media and claimed that despite how it might sound in his posts, she and David love the LGBTQ community and have gay friends. She ended by saying she was sorry for the comments that were made. Will that be enough to save her job?
All the drama started last week, soon after the deadly shooting at Parkland High School.
Eason posted a picture on social media of Evans posing with an assault rifle just hours after the Florida school shooting and they received a whole lot of criticism because of it.
Since then, Eason has been going on and on about guns and gun control in his posts, and at one point he shared a news story about the possibility of people with concealed carry permits bringing weapons on to school property.
This started some lengthy back and forth between Eason and his followers, with one suggesting that instead of using guns we should protect kids with education and intentional parenting.
Eason replied by saying that idea was wrong and asked how we make everyone in America better parents. The same follower replied by writing that Eason could start by being a parent himself and not glorifying assault rifles.
The 29-year-old did not like that answer, and his next response went off on a tangent away from guns, and instead went towards insulting the gay and transgender community.

He then referred to gay and transgender people as abominations.
Fans started calling Eason homophobic, and he replied that he never said anything about being “scared of homos.”
These remarks have fans pushing harder than ever to have executive producer Morgan J. Freeman fire the couple from the popular reality show. A petition was started on Change.org asking MTV and the show’s producers to reprimand the couple for their actions.

As for Evans, she also caused a stir when she revealed that she tested positive for THC after giving birth to her daughter Ensley. THC is the ingredient in marijuana that gets users high, but Evans claims she was using it to help her with bad esophageal spasms that were causing her not to be able to eat.

Medical marijuana is not legal in North Carolina, but CPS closed Evans’ case after doing a wellness check and concluding that everything is fine.
New episodes of Teen Mom 2 will return later this year on MTV, Eason will no longer be a member of the cast. Only time will tell if Jenelle Evans’ apology can save her job and her only source of income.
