Former Teen Mom 2 star David Eason is being called “disgusting” and a “douche bag” after sharing a straight pride meme on Instagram recently. The 30-year-old took to social media on Wednesday, Aug. 29, to share his unwarranted opinion on the LGBTQ community, and to say it really pissed a lot of people off is an understatement.
“For the people who get offended when you call them what they identify themselves as… I’m also proud to be a white man, a southerner, and a redneck! #pride,” David captioned a meme that read, “Straight pride. It’s natural, it’s worked for thousands of years, and you can make babies.”
Immediately, people began commenting on the post, with one person writing, “Ugh. Men like you are so disgusting.” Another agreed writing, “You are a disgusting human being. Good luck with all that.” A third and fourth chimed in, “You are such a douche bag,” and, “Lol wow. Ignorance at its finest.”
Predictably, David didn’t let that fly without comment, either. He posted a follow up picture on his page, this time a shot of him flipping off the camera. He even had a message for his followers, though he lated deleted it because apparently the photo speaks for itself. “To all you sensitive b—hes with feelings who unfollowed me today… This is for you, sit on it and twist,” he originally wrote in the picture’s caption. Charming, isn’t it?
“So glad the people who unfollowed him can see this post… #pointless” sarcastly responded one Instagram user, with a second writing, “D–n dude if I were you I would just delete your account cause everyone hates you.” Another commenter simply returned the message in kind, posting middle finger emojis in a whole range of skin colors.
Of course, the reality TV exile is no stranger to controversy. And this isn’t the first time he hit back at haters, either. David got himself fired back in Febraury for spewing homophobic and transphobic comments online. Mere hours after the Florida school shooting, he uploaded a photo of his wife, Jenelle Evans, holding a rifle and proceeded to literally fire off bigoted comments. “It only makes sense to protect our kids the proper way, the only way we know how,” David wrote on Twitter, responding to someone about the prospect of concealed carry in schools.
“Education is how we protect our kids,” wrote the other Twitter user. “Starts with intentional parenting.” David clapped back, “And just what makes you think you have a right to tell me how to be a parent? Because you think you know me? LMAO, why don’t you go tell the homo and transgender parents to start teaching their kids better morals? Oh, I forgot, that’s supposed to be normal.” He continued the argument with several more hateful tweets, even calling the community “dogs.”
Jenelle has yet to respond to his most recent backlash.
