Will MTV fire Cheyenne Floyd from 'Teen Mom' for past racist comments? Internet says 'Racism goes both ways'
David Eason has been hitting back at the network and calling them out on their hypocrisy for not firing 'Teen Mom OG' star Cheyenne for comments she made about wanting 'to kill every white person'
In the past, MTV has fired 'Teen Mom 2' star David Eason for his transphobic and homophobic tweets in 2018. A Twitter user had asked him if he was going to teach his kids "to hate gay and transgender people," after his rant against the community. Eason had replied to that user saying, "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." In the light of these comments, MTV had fired him saying "Eason's personal comments do not reflect the views of MTV." Now Eason has been hitting back at the network and calling them out on their hypocrisy for not firing 'Teen Mom OG' star Cheyenne for comments she made about wanting "to kill every white person" in now-deleted tweets from 2012, the ones that she's previously apologized for.
Eason posted his rant on Facebook within which he wrote, "Cheyenne Floyd has so much 'privilege' she can say the most racist things out of anyone, delete her apology but still not fired?"He then took a swipe at MTV producer Morgan J Freeman who claimed that President Trump chooses to ignore racism. He shared a screenshot of Morgan's tweet and wrote, "Morgan acts like he cares about racism but looks like he only holds white people accountable for their actions!"
He didn't stop there, he shared numerous screenshots of DMs from his fans and followers asking him to stop "racial injustice" on MTV. He shared each DM with a different caption while also tagging MTV. "Send me some more DMs! Let's show MTV how much we care about equality.MTV you gonna fire everybody or just pick and choose who you don't like personally. MTV knowingly hires a racist," wrote David.
Eason was not the only White person who was fired for problematic tweets. Last month, MTV fired Taylor Selfridge for her past racist comments. On June 9, they declared the end of their working relationship with Selfridge while also pulling off 'Teen Mom OG At Home: Cory & Taylor’s Baby Special' that also featured her boyfriend Cory Wharton.
Eason also shared a screenshot of a fan questioning her being fired. "It is sooo not right for MTV to have let you and Taylor Selfridge go from the show but not Cheyenne!! Racism goes BOTH WAYS," read the tweet.
Now the question is will this opposition from fans lead to Cheyenne being fired from the show? Only time can tell. Watch this space for more updates.
