David Eason calls MTV 'hypocrite' for casting Bristol Palin on 'Teen Mom OG'
Jenelle Evans' husband is not happy that Bristol Palin is joining the show and it did not waste any time in calling out MTV for their choice.
Jenelle Evans' husband, David Eason is not pleased with MTV for choosing Bristol Palin as the new cast member for 'Teen Mom OG.' Following his homophobic tweets in February, David was fired from the show and on Friday (July 20), he took to Instagram to show his disappointment over MTV's selection. “I know MTV is comprised of hypocrites, but how do you fire me and hire Bristol Palin after all of her homophobic and racist remarks?” he wrote. In the caption, David noted that he has nothing against Bristol but has “everything against MTV, which he called “liberals trying to confuse, persuade, and penalize.”
Jenelle also showed support for her husband as she took to Twitter and wrote, And again, I will ALWAYS stand by my husband’s opinion. #BestBelieve #StandUpForYourself."
Bristol is set to join the show and replace Farrah Abraham after she was fired following her association with the adult entertainment industry. Bristol confirmed the news about joining the cast of 'Teen Mom' in an Instagram post. She shared a picture of her with children, Tripp Easton Mitchell, Atley, and Sailor. "I am excited to join MTV's 'Teen Mom OG.' I look forward to sharing my experiences and hope that I can help others on their journey," she captioned the picture.
Bristol, it is believed, has been offered $250,000 for the show. Over the years, there have been a number of controversies that Bristol has found herself in. In 2012, she critiqued former President Barack Obama’s thought on same-sex marriage. Taking to her blog, Bristol commented on the policy suggesting that Obama's decision was not right.
“Sometimes dads should lead their family in the right ways of thinking. In this case, it would’ve been nice if the President would’ve been an actual leader and helped shape their thoughts instead of merely reflecting what many teenagers think after one too many episodes of Glee," she wrote at that time. Bristol also had to justify herself when several reports suggested that she laughed when her son, Tripp called his aunt an “f—-t” on an episode of 'Bristol Palin: Life’s a Tripp'.
Noting that she is “not proud of what he did say,” Bristol, said, "Lifetime filmed over 12 months (on and off) and they caught a moment on film that would cause any parent to be red in the face. Tripp is always surrounded by adults –- around the campfires with cousins and their friends, at the shop with my dad and his snowmachine buddies. He’s apparently picked up some language that I’d prefer he not use. On national television or at home," as reported by HuffPost.
Bristol has also been a strong advocate for preventing teen pregnancy since her unplanned experience. Even though in the past Bristol called abstinence the 'only 100& foolproof way' to prevent pregnancies, she mentioned that she does not want to be seen as 'an abstinence preacher' in 2011.
