Now and then, everyone says things that they don’t really mean. Words can be taken out of context or twisted to have a different meaning altogether, especially when you’re a celebrity.
But any way you take it, this recent update from Jenelle Evans isn’t pretty. In fact, many across the board think that Jenelle has revealed just how racist she really is with this inflammatory picture.
Jenelle Evans has been a controversial member of the Teen Mom cast since day one. Since marrying David Eason, things have gotten even more rocky for her fanbase. David isn’t exactly the most popular cast member — in fact, now he’s an ex cast member because of his opinions! After going on a pretty intense homophobic rant, David lost his job as a Teen Mom star!
Now, David is at the center of yet another controversy from Jenelle. This time, it’s a little more confusing.
“How’s your racist and homophobic husband?” a fan tweeted at Jenelle last week. Jenelle responded in a way that confused nearly everyone, writing: “My husband is black, but yeah ok sure. Lmao.”
As if that wasn’t confusing enough, she didn’t stop there. She shared DNA test results from David that reveal he is a whopping… <1% from Africa North. Needless to say, fans had a field day.
“WAIT wtf I missed something. Is she SERIOUSLY saying David can’t be racist because he’s BLACK because he has like 2% African ancestry!?” wrote reddit user justoneofmattskids. “LAWD HELP.” User Merdiff91 wrote, “I find it laughable that she A) thinks we care B) thinks 1% qualifies him as black and C) thinks his race is a valid argument for the stupid bullsh*t that comes out of their mouths.” User pizza_elf wrote, “She’s so delusional it’s crazy. You can’t make this sh*t up.”
But the drama doesn’t end there. David joined in on the claims, sharing a picture of himself that sums up the “I can’t be racist; I have black friends” trope. He captioned it, “Hey y’all now everyone is saying I’m a racist because I shaved my hair! What do y’all think lmao?”
“I’m disgusted at him using his black ‘friends’ to try to play the I’m not racist card. Wow. Just wow,” wrote user leafmealonebae.
