Another day, another David Eason controversy. The former Teen Mom 2 star took to Instagram to share several snaps of his only biological son, Kaden David holding a gun — and needless to say, people were pissed. The outspoken dad certainly hasn’t been shy about his affection for firearms in the past, so it’s no wonder he didn’t think twice about posting the pics.
“Don’t come treading around these parts, we train em up young!” he captioned the Sept. 16 album. Immediately, fans began commenting on it, with one person writing, “disgusting” and another simply adding, “smh.”
Yet not everyone thought there was an issue. One person defended David and wrote, “Nothing wrong with teaching young. My dad taught me at the age of 5.” A second commenter agreed and said, “I was taught young …..nothing wrong with that….”
Surprisingly, this isn’t the first time the 30-year-old gave one of his kids a weapon. Back in March, the reality TV exile ruffled a few feathers when he handed his daughter Ensley, then 1, a gun. “Photo shoot with dad!” he wrote in the caption.
Prior to MTV giving him the boot, David and his wife, Jenelle Evans, shared a series of “insensitive” photos and comments just hours after the Florida high school shooting. Although he ended up being 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.”
Well, at least they have (a couple) supporters!
