These photos suggest that!
Despite accusations about misleading editing, the heart of Teen Mom is an attempt to show the real lives of girls who became pregnant at a young age. With that in mind, MTV has chronicled some of the darkest points of the girls’ lives. From drug addiction to domestic abuse to abortions, the cameras haven’t stopped rolling during the worst moments in their journeys.
So if domestic abuse is happening on camera, it’s unlikely that MTV won’t film it… or air it. In fact, fans have begun to believe that the relationship between David Eason and Jenelle Evans is abusive, though nothing major has been caught on MTV’s camera. Fans (and those close to Jenelle) find David to be controlling and volatile, and some have even agreed with Barbara in saying that David is the worst man Jenelle has dated. But now a photo has surfaced that purports to prove that David has physically abused his new wife.
It’s no question that David and Jenelle have some serious enemies in the people around them. Jenelle went through with her threats of not inviting her mother to her wedding — further distancing the already estranged duo from one another — but the couple also has some enemies in the world of their fanbase.
Recently, there have been numerous abuse allegations aimed at the couple. After a particularly explosive episode (“Love You, Mean It”), the mother-of-three threatened to quit the show due to a flood of abuse accusations. She also used the episode to claim that MTV’s editing was to blame for the harrowing situation depicted on screen. Now, one fan claims to have proof that David is abusing his new wife.
After much anticipation, Jenelle recently launched a makeup line, featuring numerous eye and lip products. Although her launch has its own share of controversy, one fan claimed to notice something particularly alarming in one of her launch pictures.
Twitter user NC Sequoia Farmer posted the status, “WOOOOOOW. This must have been her punishment for how Monday’s Reunion show was edited. #GETOUTNOWJENELLE #MTVpromotes[DomesticViolence].”
The user claimed that they didn’t photoshop the image, but simply “Adjusted it, then adjusted the adjustment. Sooo, filters over filters.” They claimed that other users could see the same results if they just “Screen shot the pic, then adjust the contrast/clarity.”
Many fans on Twitter spoke out in shock at this image, expressing worry and concern about Jenelle’s wellbeing. However, fans on Reddit were less than convinced.
User YasLuv wrote, “This is very heavily photoshopped by the original poster on Twitter (and likely by Jenelle too). I’m not a David fan, but I’m calling BS on this.”
“[G]uys let’s use our critical thinking skills- if jenelle was beat this badly and her bruises were that visible she wouldnt be walking around in a tank top in public! (shes in the car, so she left her house) she would have a f–king turtle neck on,” user zuesk134 wrote.
User Cereyn pointed out, “My neck/chest area look exactly like this if I have scratched the area.”
One user, LolaSparkles reported that they are a professional photographer and offered some more technical insight. “First, you cannot remove filters once a picture is uploaded to a SM site. You can counteract them … but you can’t just peel off what the original poster has done. It will never get back to the original photo once it is saved in that format,” they wrote.
“I screenshotted the original post and pulled it into photoshop. I was able to add Clarity, contrast and saturation to get almost the same image. But, I had to add A LOT. I actually had to edit the photo once. Then save and edit it again.
Literally ANYBODY would look like an abuse victim at that point. The original poster probably only added these edits to the skin (not to the hair and shirt, etc) to make it appear real. It honestly looks like she had an itch and scratched herself. I can see where the fingers started the scratch and it is an area where I often get itchy.”
