Can you say tone-deaf? Jenelle Evans is coming under fire after a photo of her on the gun range was posted on social media — the same day as the tragic school shooting in Florida. The Teen Mom 2 star spent Valentine's Day with her husband David Eason doing target practice, which may have not been the smartest idea given the circumstances.
"New profile pic," he captioned the image of Jenelle shooting a rifle, which was quickly slammed by fans. "You think you two would have a bit more respect for those who just lost loved ones to gun violence, especially with you both being in the public eye. Disrespectful. It’s not like you didn’t hear about it," one follower tweeted before another added, "This is absolutely disgusting. Have some f–king respect. Think about your children and how you'd feel if they went to school and never came home!" Watch the video above to see the controversial photo.
Jenelle, 26, went on to blame the backlash on "bad timing," but has yet to take down the offensive photo. David also defended himself on the platform, writing, "What do you think I sit around all day watching TV to check the news before I post a picture… umm no b—h." The news he was referring to was the killing of 17 unsuspecting victims at a high school in South Florida by former student Nikolas Cruz.
This scandal comes just a few days after the MTV star was fired by the Blue Apron. "By @blueapron having Jenelle Evans as an advertiser for your company is a bad idea," a critic tweeted. "She's a drug addict who abuses her kids in TV. You just lost my business. Good job. I won't be the only one." The meal prep company promptly reassured customers they ended their relationship with the mother-of-three, tweeting, "Thanks for reaching out. We will no longer be advertising with Jenelle." However, Jenelle insists she quit after the meal prep company after they decided to work with her nemesis Kailyn Lowry. Oh, and if you're wondering, she isn't pregnant either.
