In recent weeks, viewers have sent a very strong message to MTV execs - namely, we're not happy with your hiring practices.
In return, the network has issued an equally firm reply -- we really don't care what you think.
First, Teen Mom viewers learned that Amber Portwood will not be fired in the wake of evidence that she assaulted boyfriend Andrew Glennon.
And now, it looks as though Jenelle Evans might be rehired by the network just months after she was fired amid an appalling scandal.
Here's everything we know so far about this baffling situation:
Back in May Jenelle was fired from the only job she's ever had -- and for very good reason.
The Nugget Incident
As you may recall, it was around that time that Jenelle's increasingly unstable husband, David Eason, beat, shot and killed the family dog - a tiny French bulldog puppy named Nugget.
Jenelle, whose on-and-off relationship with the truth has been well documented, not only stuck by David's side in the wake of this controvery, she also helped him to cover up his crimes, at one point lying to police and claiming the dog had simply run away.
Finally Coming Clean
Earlier this month, Jenelle and David finally admitted to slaughtering the dog, but only as part of a public relations blitz (which legitimate media outlets somehow agreed to) so that they could drum up some publicity for her newly-launched cosmetics line.
It Didn't Work
Suffice it to say, the spin job they attempted didn't translate to success on the sales front. In total, Evans has moved fewer than 200 units of her eyebrow kit, so we think it's safe to say that confessing to being a dog killer didn't turn out to be the hook she was looking for.
Moreover, the Nugget killing and subsequent #JusticeForNugget movement prompted a CPS investigation which determined that she and David were incapable of providing a safe home environment for their children.
