Taking a stand. Nathan Griffith took to Twitter to sound off on the news that his ex-fiancée Jenelle Evans’ husband, David Eason, was fired from Teen Mom 2 for targeting the LGBTQ community in a series of hateful tweets. While he never mentioned David’s name, it was clear that Nathan was referring to David’s disgusting comments about gay and transgender people.
“Please take care everyone! Especially, with the terrorist attacks in the east and the families suffering in Florida. God bless and remember that God is the only one that judges and loves all his children of all races, sex, personal orientation and belief,” Nathan — who shares son Kaiser, 3, with Jenelle — wrote.
The gym enthusiast went on to admit that he’s said regrettable things in the past, but has adopted a more accepting attitude in recent years. “I know there are some things I have said out of pure ignorance on my part,” he continued. “And if I have offended or hurt anyone out there, I am truly sorry and the door is always open to vent or even ask for advice.”

He added, “I have my own beliefs and my own opinions but to [segregate], belittle and to hate someone based on their opinions, lifestyle, religion, race and/or sexual orientation is wrong. PERIOD! It’s 2018! As long as it doesn’t affect your life, then let it go. #lovemorehateless”
Nathan’s message comes after MTV announced that the network has officially cut ties with David due to his offensive remarks. “David Eason’s personal comments do not reflect the views of MTV,” the network wrote in a statement on Twitter. “With six weeks left of production on ‘Teen Mom 2,’ effective immediately, we are ending our relationship with him.”
David decided to attack the LGBTQ community just days ago after he and several Twitter users got into an argument over gun control following the deadly shooting at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in which 17 people lost their lives, on Feb. 14.
“And just what makes you think you have a right to tell me how to be a parent?” David wrote in a now-deleted tweet. “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.”
That’s when a Twitter user chimed in, asking David, “Who are you to say what’s normal or what’s moral? Are you going to teach your children to hate gay and transgender people?”
“No,” David responded. “I’m going to teach them not to associate with them or be that way…If you lay down with dogs, you get up with fleas.” And later, David tweeted, “Homophobic? You really lost it now. I’m not scared [of] s–t, especially a homo.”
