Former Teen Mom 2 star David Eason lost his job on the popular MTV reality show earlier this year after a homophobic Twitter rant, and his wife Jenelle Evans defended his hate speech during last season’s reunion. But, Eason refuses to stop the hate, and he recently bashed the transgender community in a series of Facebook posts.
It all began when Eason posted a meme referring to the bathroom bill allowing transgender individuals access to public toilets that read, “In democratic America, if this girl sees a penis at a party, it’s a crime. But if this girl sees a penis in the women’s bathroom, it’s tolerance.”

Eason’s post immediately caused outrage, and fans started firing back. One wrote that trans people are not “automatically perverts,” while another wrote that anyone can be a pervert, then asked what Eason thought about men who molest or rape boys in bathrooms and women who molest or rape girls in bathrooms.
Evans’ husband shockingly responded by writing, “We are talking about trans people. Perverts. Yes, they are ALL perverts, do your research. Why do you think they change their whole life to meet their sexual preferences?”
Eason didn’t stop there. He went on to say that if there weren’t perverts in bathrooms, we wouldn’t have to worry about kids being curious or accidentally walking in on someone. He added, “When they see a trans that looks like a clown” walk into the bathroom, kids will most likely stare because it is strange to normal people. “Kids naturally know there is something wrong and different,” he wrote.
When Evans defended Eason’s homophobic comments on last season’s reunion, she said that her husband was raised that way, but the kids don’t hear him say those things and he doesn’t run around the house saying that he hates gay people.
Evans then claimed that her husband had stopped posting his controversial beliefs on social media.

But, fans know that is not the case. Eason has continued to bash the LGBTQ community, and he recently posted a meme on Instagram of a bride and groom that read, “It’s natural, it’s worked for thousands of years, and you can make babies.”
Eason wrote in the caption of the meme that the post was for people who get offended when you don’t call them what they identify as. He added that he was proud to be a white, southern man who is also a redneck.
According to Us Weekly, not only is Jenelle Evans having to deal with David Eason’s social media activity, but she is also in her own Twitter war with her baby daddy, Nathan Griffith. The two are in a custody battle over their 4-year-old son, Kaiser, that has been going on for months. And, neither of them are shy about calling each other out on social media.
Teen Mom 2 will return to MTV in 2019.
