Fans of the hit MTV show, Teen Mom are up in arms with the network after finding out that one of the stars of the show has been sending out homophobic tweets.
In progressive time like 2018 we'd like to think that there is absolutely no reason for a huge network like MTV, to be promoting and paying an individual that is clearly homophobic. Well, apparently they are and fans are not having any of it.
Jenelle Evans, one of the most controversial stars of all time from the Teen Mom franchise, is at the centre of another controversy. Fans are slamming her and her husband, David Eason for some seriously disturbing tweets.
The alleged tweets are now deleted, but a Twitter user has screenshotted conversations where trans children and homophobia are debated between Eason and various parents.
This is the type of person that’s allowed on tv, the type of person that’s paid by @mtv & @Viacom, and the type of person our youth is influenced by! We need to take a stand for gender equality and show our youth they’re loved no matter who they grow up to be!— ImFcknRakin! (@ImFcknRakin) February 19, 2018

In the first tweet Eason responds to a parent by saying, "And just what makes you think you have the right to tell me how to be a parent? Because you think you know me? 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 🤔". He also responded by saying "God will have mercy on me but not those who are an abomination"
After another user stated that they were a parent of a trans child, and that they were appalled by Eason's hate speech. Eason then responded by saying "You need to learn some parenting skills"
Teen Mom has some seriously die-hard fans and they are calling out MTV for paying Eason and giving him a position of influence over young viewers. Not only that, but they are calling for Easan and Evans to be fired immediately from the show.
If you watch the show, then you know that Evans has stirred up a lot of controversy over the years and this isn't the first time that fans have begged that her entire family should be taken off of Teen Mom. It won't be long before MTV makes an official statement, and fans are hoping that the famous family will be fired from the network.
