Jenelle Evans, star of MTV's Teen Mom 2, recently opened up about her latest stint on the show.

She also addressed her husband's animosity towards the LGBTQ community and stated they are both fine with his words and actions.


David Eason, who has a 19-month-old daughter with Evans, was also a part of the MTV reality show. However he was promptly fired after posting homophobic tweets in which he called gay and transgender people "abominations."


Since his firing in February, not much has changed. Eason went back to making deliberately inflammatory posts mocking LGBTQ people.

On Wednesday, he took to his Instagram profile "easondavid88" and posted an illustration of a heterosexual bride and groom with the words "Straight Pride" across the top and the caption "it's Natural, it's Worked for Thousands of years and you Can Make Babies" at the bottom.


Being fired from MTV didn't teach him anything. (@easondavid88)

In his own caption for the image, Eason stated:

"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"

Eason fails to specify "the people who get offended" and which words he thinks matches what they "identify themselves as." Along with his usual homophobia, his caption added a reference often found in White Supremacist and alt-right rhetoric to justify racism and their use of racist language.

Is Eason now claiming there are words he uses for non-White people that they use to "identify themselves?"

His post riled many fans of Teen Mom 2 on social media.

Some of Eason's own followers—who should be familiar with his homophobia and transphobia—sounded off in the comments section of his post. The broader community of fans for his wife's show also took to Twitter.

However, not surprisingly some of Eason's own fans support and share his call for White Pride and anti-LGBTQ views.

However some picked up on the added White Supremacist rhetoric in his caption and admonished him for it.

One person asked a genuine question of the father.

Someone on Twitter thought they knew the answer based on his strong commitment to publicly posting anti-LGBTQ rhetoric even after losing his job.

Eason's controversial post came just two days after his wife downplayed his homophobia and transphobia.

Jenelle Evans stated:

"He doesn't hate those people."

Evans sat down with Dr. Drew for the second part of the Teen Mom 2 season 8 reunion interview in Wilmington, North Carolina.

She confirmed not much changed since her husband was fired back in February.

"He still feels the way he feels. He thinks he shouldn't have said it the way he did, but he still stands by his views. He deleted it right afterwards, he said he was sorry, and he still hasn't been on Twitter."

Evans however claimed her husband could go online and post his anti-LGBTQ views, but he doesn't.

"He can still go online right now and rant all he wants — he still doesn't. … We've discussed it and I've said you don't need to be as outspoken."

Oops.


But Evans, 26, defended her husband's verbal assault on the LGBTQ community with a bizarre analogy. According to Evans, homophobia or transphobia is just like not wanting your child to go to medical school.

"He just says he just doesn't want his kids to grow up and be that way."
"Just like if you don't want your kid to grow up and be a doctor … some dads are just like that. …"
"It's been the way he was raised. … He doesn't run around the house saying, 'I hate gay people'."

Watch it here:




"Erica" on Twitter found a flaw in Evans's justification for David Eason's behavior due to his apparent—according to his wife—homophobic, transphobic and possibly racist upbringing.

Erica argued that being raised one way doesn't automatically mean you have to adopt the same hateful beliefs. Although she was also raised in an environment that promoted hating anyone unlike herself, Erica chose not to embrace her family's anti-LGBTQ and racist ideology as an adult.



Evans and Eason married in September 2017. They have a 19-month-old daughter, Ensley.

So let's talk about how a dog owner on Facebook learned her dog's "adorable" behavior was, in fact, furious masturbation.

Readers, if you know anything about me you know I love a good plot twist and I love chonky puppers.

Yesterday, life combined my two great loves in a hilarious and inappropriate way.

I was mindlessly scrolling through my dog groups on Facebook when a video with a few hundred laugh reacts but almost no comments caught my eye.

The still from the video was a pudgy little Frenchie, so obviously I had to read and watch.

Have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to win the lottery? Having money for the rest of your life, as far as the eye can see, to cover your expenses.

And have you thought about all the things you would buy if you could really afford them? Are they ALL practical things, or are some of them silly?

We always love to fantasize about what life would be like if money were no object. And you are not alone!

One of the most freeing realizations I've had was when I understood that not everyone was going to like me.

That's just the way it is for all of us, and I learned that it would be unfair for me to dedicate so much time worrying about what others might think.

It changed my life—improved it, I'd say.

That, combined with my willingness to take responsibility for my own actions, was crucial to my self-development.

Whether it's an epiphany or experience, there are many things that can happen and can successfully shift your perspective.

People shared their stories after Redditor drewyourstory asked the online community:

"What life event or experience changed your perspective?"
