Fans are furious!
They say you don’t really know someone until you’ve seen them angry. Well, that must mean that we all know Jenelle Evans and David Eason very well by now. This couple recently walked down the aisle, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve mellowed out very much. Their behavior at the recent Teen Mom reunion proved definitely proved it.
That said, fans may have seen at least one part of David Eason that they hadn’t seen before ― and that part is not very pretty. Fans were furious at the homophobic slur he used during the reunion filming and they’re letting hi have it online.
It looks like Jenelle’s new husband is losing even more fans…
Those looking for drama during the Teen Mom 2 season eight reunion were not disappointed. As per usual, Dr. Drew didn’t go easy on any of the Teen Moms as he asked them about some of the more troubling parts of the previous season.
Jenelle got emotional about her love for David in light of recent abuse accusations. “He’s protective, he’s passionate about his family,” she said. “I can never see him turning his back on me. He treats me the best way possible. It makes me upset to see everyone bashing him. He doesn’t make me feel insecure in any way possible.”
Jenelle said that he may get angry sometimes, but insisted that she helped him control it. “When he gets aggressive, I say, ‘You got to calm down,’” she said. “They don’t show me saying that.”
Meanwhile, David’s aggressive side was coming out was he sounded off in the background. “We’re leaving after this,” he said while cameras rolled. “[Dr. Drew] is a drama queen… Push every button, pull every string, make her cry, make everybody upset. Call me an aggressive person who hurts everybody. I’m not answering any of his questions. I’m going to tell him how I feel about him!”
But that’s not what fans zeroed in on. In the middle of this tirade, David let out: “And he’s probably a f–got.”
Fans were incensed at this flagrant use of a homophobic slur, and were equally angry that MTV did nothing to address it. Often MTV will air PSAs about the situations that take place in the episode, giving resources for things such as drug addiction or domestic abuse, and fans were disappointed that they didn’t at least do so in this case.
Reddit user NotMyMainPeach recalled another homophobic incident on the show. “Remember when Matt called Ambers brother a f**got? The type of people that say that as an angry insult, are usually horrible.” They added, “It’s indicative of the kind of person David is really. He’s ignorant, angry, and small minded.”
This isn’t the first time that David Eason has been blasted for homophobic comments. Around a year ago, fans with furious with David for posting this shot to Snapchat, writing, “Gay strippers are gay” for no apparent reason. This caused many to believe there were homophobic sentiments behind it.
This also isn’t the first time that David has been accused of using homophobic slurs. A few months ago, Nathan accused David of calling him a “f–king queer” in front of his mother and Kaiser. Although fans may not have believed Nathan’s accusations at the time, David’s recent homophobic behavior will likely make them more likely to believe it.
