She's ready to go!
Over on Jenelle Evans and David Eason’s “Land,” things are probably not very happy right now. The couple were once raking in huge paychecks from Teen Mom for their combined stardom, but after David’s explosive and inflammatory homophobic rant on Twitter, that came to a halt. Things are certainly going to be shaken up for the Easons, and now it looks like the entire Teen Mom cast is at risk of a shake up all its own.
It didn’t surprise many people that David lost his job over his bigoted and raging comments, but that may not be where the drama ends. It seems that Jenelle Evans was posed to lose her job as well, and may still be on the chopping block.
If these firings go through, it will leave the Teen Mom 2 cast low in numbers. Luckily, MTV has its own backup ready to go: Teen Mom 3 star Mackenzie Mckee.
David Eason only had a Twitter account for two weeks before his account activity got him fired from Teen Mom 2.
“Lmao why don’t you go tell the homo and transgender parents to start teaching their kids better morals? Oh I forgot thats supposed to be normal,” David wrote in a recent tweet which followed months of bigoted comments from the star.
When one fan asked, “Who are you to say what’s normal or what’s moral? Are you going to teach your children to hate gay and transgender people?” David revealed that he plans to raise Jace, Kaiser, Ensley, and Maryssa to be homophobic and bigoted… and compared members of the LGBTQ community to “dogs.”
“No, Im going to teach them not to associate with them or be that way…” he said. “If you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas.”
Got the Boot
It wasn’t long before MTV made the decision that it was no longer appropriate for David to be a member of their cast.
“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,” read a statement by MTV released Feb. 20, 2018.
Unfortunately, it seemed David’s behavior may have pulled his wife Jenelle Evans down with him. According to Radar Online, Jenelle’s filming was put on hold while MTV decided whether Jenelle would be fired as well!
“No cameras were at Jenelle’s house after David got fired or the next day and there were no plans to resume filming anytime soon,” an insider told Radar. “MTV is having meetings all week to discuss the situation, trying to figure out if they are going to fire Jenelle or not.”
The thought of Jenelle leaving the show was shocking to many fans, but her replacement was even more surprising. According to a recent report by Radar, the replacement they had lined up was the one and only Mackenzie McKee.
“Mackenzie is filming a short special right now,” an insider told the outlet. “MTV has wanted to continue with her story for a while. They want to bring her back.”
Apparently, the timing was great to consider Mackenzie to replace Jenelle. “This is a test for her, but she may be the one who replaces Jenelle if the network fires her.”
