MTV fires Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans' husband David Eason after his homophobic rant on Twitter
After David Eason went on his homophobic rant on Twitter, MTV has stepped in with their decision.
David Eason has been fired from Teen Mom 2 after the reality star went on a homophobic rant on Twitter. In an official statement which was provided by MTV's spokesperson, it is stated that the channel is not responsible for the personal thoughts and views David holds.
“David Eason’s personal comments do not reflect the views of MTV,” the statement read. “With six weeks left of production on Teen Mom 2, effective immediately, we are ending our relationship with him.” This news comes after many Teen Mom fans took to their Twitter account to express their disappointment.
Many teamed up to suggest that David must be fired from the show after he allegedly referred to gay and transgender people as "abominations" in one of his tweets. Even though his Twitter account has been taken down since the time the tweets were made, various screenshots of the same have been circulating on the internet.
The entire incident started after David shared a story about the possibility of allowing people to bring guns to school property. Along with the news, he tweeted, "It only makes sense to protect our kids the proper way… the only way we know how.”
In response to David's tweet, one Twitter user suggested that people use “education” and “intentional parenting” as tools for protecting children instead of with weapons, David quickly jumped in to dismiss that idea.
“No, you are wrong. Please tell me, sir, how do you propose we make all of America start being better parents? Or are you a monkey's uncle?” The Twitter user then told David to stop “glorifying assault rifles” and asked him if he would teach his children “to hate gay and transgender people.”
To which he responded, “No, I’m going to teach them not to associate with them or be that way. “If you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas.”
