At this point, David Eason is just begging for backlash. The former Teen Mom 2 star — who was fired from the show for his homophobic comments about the LGBTQ community — posted a photo on social media of his one-year-old daughter, Ensley, holding a gun. "Photo shoot with dad!" he wrote in the caption. Watch the video above to see the disturbing pic.
Yet this isn't the first time the father-of-three — and stepfather to two — came under fire for his posts about guns. He and his wife, Jenelle Evans, were slammed last month after sharing a series of "insensitive" photos and comments just hours after the Florida high school shooting. Although David has since been fired for other reasons, fans of the show had started a petition at the time to give the husband and wife duo the ax.
"David posted photos of his wife, Jenelle Eason, holding and aiming a rifle, the same weapon that the gunman used in the Florida massacre," the change.org petition read. "When questioned on Twitter about why he would post such photos after this tragedy, he attacked several women, calling them 'b—–s' and 'h–s' and using other threatening and abusive language." The description continued, "These people need to be reprimanded for their actions. We urge all of you to sign this petition to get them removed from MTV and fired from Teen Mom 2."
Recently, Jenelle snapped a photo of her son, Kaiser, holding a gun as well. Of course, for all of the people fuming at the idea of giving a child a weapon (even a fake one), there were also plenty of fans defending Jenelle and David. "You can tell this is a toy gun!," said a supporter. "Teaching kids gun safety and how to hunt is part of the southern life ?. A country boy who was raised around guns and knows how to shoot and respect guns would never be a threat to someone! Good for you letting your boys be boys and learning to hunt ??." Well, at least they have (very few) supporters!
