Did they lose it?
We all have our own ways of reacting to bad news. For most people, that’s calling a friend to vent, having a self-care night, or simply letting it all out by crying. For others, that means shaving your head completely bald.
Right now, Jenelle Evans and David Eason have plenty to be upset about. David was recently fired by MTV after his homophobic rant on Twitter. That means on top of being nationally shamed, this couple has lost half of their household income.
We’ll never know how they reacted when it happened — after all, the cameras stopped rolling. But we will know that the hair trimmers came out!
After David Eason was fired due to his homophobic rant on Twitter, it’s safe to say there was a bit of a shake-up on “The Land.” The newlyweds can’t have been very happy about losing their second huge MTV paycheck on top of being shamed publicly. But instead of simply going off on fans on social media, the couple deleted their Twitter accounts and kept things pretty quiet.
Since then, they’ve been sharing adorable pictures of their children and lives like nothing is wrong, but could it all be an act? David Eason’s recent look has fans thinking he’s more upset than he’s willing to let on.
This is fine.
Fans were shocked when David revealed his new look on social media, completely without hair! In fact, Jenelle Evans uploaded a video of them laughing while he shaved his head the night of the firing!
Jenelle has since explained that David accidentally cut a patch of his hair too short, so he decided to shave it all off so that it would be the same length again. But many fans believe this is an indicator that the couple is bottling up all the stress of the firing.
“This is a totally normal reaction to everything that’s happened this week,” joked reddit user SundaySweatpants. “This is fine. Everything’s fine.”
Others thought David might be going for a specific kind of look. “I think he’s trying to look like a skinhead, honestly. Why else would he do this now?” wrote hawkcarhawk. User 3980 agreed, “He shaved his head as he has nothing left to lose. He can finally live his life as a skin head.”
Some theorized that David was trying to pass a drug test. Of course, that wouldn’t make sense, since he didn’t shave his beard! “I’m of the impression that they are stupid enough to think the judge can’t test his hair in the custody case now. Lmao! This is the only reason I see for this,” wrote mrselisesmith.
Regardless of David’s reasoning, he seems to be embracing his new look. As a whole, it seems the family is embracing a life without MTV!
