Earlier this week, David Eason launched into an unprompted homophobic rant on Twitter that horrified fans -- and Teen Mom 2 fans are not easily shocked.
MTV has ended their relationship with David Eason, which makes things even more awkward for the already controversial Jenelle Evans.
Nathan Griffith is stepping up to the plate and condemning David Eason's words.
Just days ago, while arguing with fans on Twitter about his and Jenelle's decidedly pro-gun response to the tragic shooting at a Florida high school on Valentine's Day, David Eason got called out on his atrocious parenting.
(And that's putting it nicely -- fans who've seen him in action wouldn't trust him with a pot roast, let alone a child)
David's response was to pivot by attacking LGBT parents and children, tweeting:
"Why don't you go tell the homo and transgender parents to start teaching their kids better morals. Oh, I forgot, that's supposed to be normal."
There's nothing abnormal or immoral about LGBT parents, but David Eason says that he's going to make sure that his kids steer clear of them.
"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."
A disgusting sentiment and a deeply offensive analogy.
When David Eason was accused of homophobia, he decided to take a literal approach to the word's etymology.
"Homophobic? You really lost it now. I'm not scared [of] s--t, especially a homo."
That's right, he decided to make it worse. (By the by, folks, "homo" in this context is a slur, but that's hardly the worst part of his tweets)
MTV pulled the plug, firing David Eason with six weeks of production remaining.
Nathan Griffith sometimes feuds with Jenelle Evans, which really fits the Teen Mom 2 brand because they're exes. And, in particular, he's Jenelle's ex.
And now he's speaking out against her current husband, David Eason.
He started his series of three tweets with well wishes for everyone.
"Please take care everyone! Especially, with the terrorist attacks in the east and the families suffering in Florida."
Every day is one nightmare after another, it seems.
"God bless and remember that God is the only one that judges and loves all his children of all races, sex, personal orientation, and belief."
That seems like a direct reference to David Eason.
He then goes on to admit that (quite frankly, like every man who's ever been in Jenelle Evans' orbit) he is far from perfect, writing:
"I know there are some things that I have said out of pure ignorance on my part."
You know what -- not that it's an excuse -- but everybody's learning all of the time.
"And if I have offended or hurt anyone out there, I am truly sorry and the door is always open to vent or even ask for advice."
Once could cynically suggest that perhaps Nathan is simply hoping to make sure that he never becomes unfilmable, but his message is a positive one.
"I have my own beliefs and my own opinions but to segregated, belittle, and to hate someone based on their opinions, lifestyle, religion, race, and/or sexual orientation is wrong. PERIOD!"
When he talks about segregation, he's clearly talking about David Eason's vow to teach his children to never associate with LGBT people.
He then goes on to lament that people are still having to preach basic equality in 2018.
"It’s 2018! As long as it doesn’t affect your life, then let it go.
That's a very positive message.
Nathan Griffith does have a tendency to come across as the more reasonable of the two when he feuds with Jenelle.
(Admittedly, that's not super hard to do -- we're talking about the Carolina Hurricane here)
We're not going to endorse him for President any time soon, but it's probably fair to say that Nathan said some good and fair things in these tweets.
And he didn't actually mention David Eason by name -- though, obviously, anyone who saw them knew what brought on his statements.
