David Eason has really shown his true colors now.
Well, he's been showing them for a while now -- this is hardly the first time he's been aggressive and hateful and terrifying.
But this new thing is just insanely, unbelievably bad.
Yesterday, David started his day off by tweeting about guns, and by the end of it, he was spewing out hateful, bigoted remarks.
These went beyond immature insults to anyone who disagreed with him (though he threw in those as well). This was just vile.
Here, let's just take some time to break it all down ...
This whole mess really started last week, when Jenelle and David upset a lot of people by sharing a pretty insensitive photo shortly after the news of the Florida shooting broke.
When David posted the photo, he bragged on Jenelle looking like a "bad ass," and she made it her profile picture. And when people pointed out that it wasn't the best time to share a photo like that, given what had happened that day, he refused to budge.
A Totally Stable Individual
For the next several days after that, he tweeted lots of pro-gun sentiments, and he was ready to argue with anyone and everyone who disagreed with him.
Then he decided to kick off his day by tweeting a news story about a new bill that would allow individuals with concealed carry permits to bring guns into schools, and along with it he wrote "It only makes sense to protect our kids the proper way... the only way we know how."
"You Are Wrong"
Someone told him that perhaps it would be better to protect children with "education" and "intentional parenting," but David did not appreciate that. "No, you are wrong," he wrote. "Please tell me sir, how do you propose we make all the people in America start being better parents? Or are you a monkeys uncle?"
Since he asked, that same person told David that he could become a better parent by not "glorifying assault rifles," and by teaching his children "how to solve problems without calling people names or using force."
And There It Is
"And just what makes you think you have the right to tell me how to be a parent?" he responded. "Because you think you know me? Lmao 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."
Digging the Hole Deeper
It was a horrible thing to say, obviously, but he kept on getting worse -- when another user asked if he planned on teaching his kids to hate gay and transgender people, he said that "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."
Then, when people told him he was being homophobic, he hit back with "Homophobic? You really lost it now, im not scared if sh-t especially a homo." He also insted that he "never said anything about being scared if homos."
From there, the meltdown just intensified. David was on Twitter on and off for most of the day, replying to anyone who disagreed with his stance with brilliant insults like "you're a bitch" and "gay boy."
The Ol' Tweet and Delete
Unfortunately, we can't recount every single horrible thing that David tweeted. After a full day of that hateful nonsense and deleting the most offensive tweets, he went ahead and deleted his entire account.
As for Jenelle, she was silent while her husband went off for literal hours -- though she did like a couple of his tweets, proving that she did see them and she didn't see a problem with what he's saying. She's deleted her entire account, too.
So we have David, who is a violent, hateful bigot, and Jenelle, who supports him. What, if anything, should be done about them?
Teen Mom Heroes
Don't worry, the rest of the Teen Mom stars have plenty of ideas.
Real Talk from Kailyn
Kailyn Lowry was the first to respond to David's statements, tweeting "I’m absolutely disturbed by the comments David made regarding gay & transgender parents. People are removed from shows for comments like that."
Come Through, MTV
"I just do not understand how the network is allowing them to get away with this," she added. She also retweeted a petition that's been going around to get Jenelle and David fired from the show.
Randy Houska, Chelsea's amazing father, urged Teen Mom fans to report David to Twitter "for the racist, homophobic hateful garbage he is posting."
David, by the way, saw Randy's comment before he deleted his account, and he instructed Mr. Houska to "eat a bag of dicks."
Tell Them, Leah!
Leah Messer retweeted Kailyn's tweet about being disgusted by David's comments, and she also wrote "They need HELP! Something needs to happen! This is all disturbing to say they least, but not surprising!"
Even Jeremy Calvert, who's gotten a fair share of criticism himself for his stance on guns, spoke out against David, tweeting "Ive Never been on their side for sh-t, I know I've posted sh-t that prolly wasn't the best stuff to post, but f-ck blows my mind the sh-t they have posted and during a touchy situation with guns post that with the caption and now yesterday. #f-ckingidiots."
"I mean i have a pretty good idea how to fix sh-t," Jeremy added. "Why don't everyone ban together and say f-ck filming another damn thing till they cut to people loose from the show.."
Courtland Rogers, Jenelle's first husband and David's former fellow inmate, went off, writing "How in the FU&K can u tweet something so hateful but yet at the same time the only guy u hung out with on the yard was a bisexual why are u acting like this on live media?? What happened to u bro? This guy has me so heated! how dare u EVER HATE ON ANYONES SEXUAL PREFERENCE U dick."
Simon Chimes In
Simon Saran, Farrah Abraham's occasional boyfriend, wrote "This is not the example we should be setting for our youth. I have many trustworthy and hardworking individuals that are Gay and Lesbians. They are outstanding individuals. I proud to have them on my team. This is actually embarrassing to see someone say this."
A Solid Point from Farrah
Farrah retweeted Simon's message, as well as some tweets from fans expressing outrage that she was fired while, as far as we know, Jenelle and David still have their jobs.
And Now for a Word from the Fans
Teen Mom stars weren't the only ones upset -- several fans of the show were quick to express their outrage, too. Many of them, like this person, strongly believe that MTV needs to let the Easons go.
... And if they don't let them go, then more than a few people are threatening to stop watching the show altogether.
Bowing to pressure from fans and concerned cast members, MTV has decided to take swift and decisive action. And Jenelle is not happy about it.
MTV Will Put Up With a Lot, But...
“David Eason’s personal comments do not reflect the views of MTV," a statement from the network begins.
David - You're Fired!
"With six weeks left of production on Teen Mom 2, effective immediately, we are ending our relationship with him," the statement continues.
Obviously, David's got a lot on his mind these days. Fortunately, thus far, he's managed to keep his foolish thoughts off socal media!
So What Comes Next?
As the network's statement indicates, MTV will to be shooting anymore foortage of David at all. Which means he'll simply disapear mid-season, possbly with no explanation.
And What Does This Mean For Jenelle?
Jenelle and David live together, so it will be difficult to feature her as a regular cast member without ever having David appear on the show. Could she be next on the chopping block?
Is this possible? Definitely, but then again almost anything is when it comes to these delinquents.
Think of the Children
You can say "those poor innocent babies" about Jenelle and David's children pretty much all the time, but lots of people are genuinely afraid for them right now.
Cease and Desist
You know what they say about hindsight!
A Word from Kieffer
Jenelle's been so good about cutting back on the mugshots these days. Keep it up, girl.
