Breaking news — Jenelle Evans’ husband, David Eason, has been fired after unleashing a hate-filled homophobic rant on social media.
“David Eason’s personal comments do not reflect the views of MTV. With six weeks left of production on ‘Teen Mom 2,’ effective immediately, we are ending our relationship with him,” the network said in a statement released on February 20, 2018.

As reported, the Teen Mom 2 dad made homophobic and derogatory comments about ‘homo’ and ‘transgender’ parents, who he calls abnormal and lacks ‘morals,’ on Monday.
David lashed out on social media after coming under fire for promoting assault rifles in wake of the recent Florida school massacre that left 17 dead.

Jenelle, 26, attempted to justify her husband’s horrific comments by saying some of her best friends were gay.
“David didn’t understand how offensive people would get or how Twitter even works. Now that he realizes his voice is very strong within media/tabloids he has deactivated his account. He agrees he will keep his comments to himself from now on. David doesn’t hate people from the LGBT community. My old manager was gay and used to be one of me and Davids close friends. We attended Farrah’s birthday in Miami with a lot of LGBT people there and he didn’t act in any type of way. We went had a good time and left.We are sorry for the comments that were made.”
But the mom of three’s apology is a day late and a dollar short — fans quickly rallied together and organized a boycott of the reality series, forcing MTV to cut ties with David.
