As we reported, on Monday, Teen Mom 2 star David Eason went on a homophobic and pro-gun Twitter rant where he reportedly said, “homo and transgender parents [should] start teaching their kids better morals.”
Shortly after Jenelle Evans‘ husband’s comments went viral, MTV released a statement on Tuesday announcing Eason’s termination from the show.
Official statement from @MTVPress: 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.

Earlier on Tuesday, Evans tried to clean up her man’s mess by saying he “doesn’t hate people from the LGBT community” and that he “didn’t understand how offensive people would get or how Twitter even works.”
Several TM2 costars including Kailyn Lowry and Leah Messer voiced their outrage overEason’s remarks.
