David Eason Posts Photo of Infant Daughter Holding Toy Gun, Outrages Fans
David Eason seems determined to make sure he alienates every last one of the fans whom he and his wife rely on to put food on the table.
As you may have heard, Eason was recently fired from Teen Mom 2 following a series of bizarre controversies.
It all started when Eason posted a photo of Jenelle Evans shooting a gun (or pretending to shoot a gun) on his Instagram page, apparently as a way of celebrating Valentine’s Day.
As news of the Parkland, Florida school shooting had broken just a few hours earlier, David’s timing wasn’t the greatest, but he refused to take the post down, even amidst intense backlash from fans.
Worse, Eason went on a homophobic tirade, hurling bigoted slurs at followers who dared to question the wisdom of publicly celebrating high-powered weapons just hours after 17 civilians lost their lives, most of them children.
Even though Eason is no longer employed by MTV and Viacom, his wife still is, and she’s now the family’s sole breadwinner.
So you might think he would generally steer clear of controversy in order to keep the peace between Jenelle and her employers.
But of course, you would be wrong.
In a Snapchat story that appeared online yesterday, David and Jenelle’s 1-year-old daughter, Ensley, can be seen holding a toy gun.
The image was captioned, “Photo shoot with Dad.”
Needless to say, the pic received an overwhelmingly negative response from Eason’s followers.
“Kid doesn’t even know what a gun is,” wrote one fan.
“Their ignorance is astonishing. Family of hunters, none of us push this on children, we don’t pose them with guns,” remarked another.
Yes, it’s important to remember that even if you feel very strongly about a political issue, it’s probably best not to drag your very young children into the debate.
Kids who can’t even tie their shoes yet probably aren’t well-versed in the nuances of the 2nd Amendment, ya know?
There’s been no word on the matter from either Jenelle or MTV, but we’re guessing neither party is thrilled with Dave’s latest post.
Watch Teen Mom 2 online in order to be reminded of the depths of Eason’s ignorance.
