Teen Mom 2: MTV fires David Eason for homophobic tweets

From BBC - February 21, 2018

MTV has fired a star of its reality show Teen Mom 2 for derogatory comments about gay and transgender people.

The network said it was "ending our relationship" with David Eason, who's the husband of Jenelle Evans.

Eason tweeted that gay and transgender parents should "start teaching their kids better morals" and that he would not let his children associate with gay and trans people "or be that way".

MTV said his "personal comments do not reflect the views of MTV".

MTV did not say what the decision would mean for Jenelle's appearances on the TV show.

A spin-off from 16 and Pregnant, Teen Mom 2 follows four women, including Jenelle, as they navigate parenthood.

Jenelle and David had a daughter named Ensley Jolie Eason a year ago and got married last September.
