Jenelle and her husband David Eason are no strangers to controversy

Jenelle, along with husband David Eason, are magnets for drama. David was fired from Teen Mom 2 back in February 2018 for posting homophobic comments in a rant on Twitter.

In his post, David called LGBTQ people “abominations” and claimed he would teach his children “not to associate with them or be that way.”

David Eason has posted controversial Instagram photos in the past

David has been incredibly provocative on social media in the past, especially when things like racism are being talked about in the news.

In 2018, David took his confederate flag on a road trip, posting multiple photos of himself holding it on Instagram in response to people who criticized him for a previous photo with the same flag.

He wrote, “Where I’m from is who I am and my family fought and died for this land. Red white and blue comes in more than one pattern. Dont argue just get off my page if you dont agree! Thanks @rednecknation #RHEC.”

One user simply commented, “you are such garbage.”

David Eason recently claimed MTV should fire Cheyenne Floyd

David recently claimed MTV should fire Cheyenne Floyd for racism. He posted a collage of old posts from the Teen Mom 2 star, and wrote, “@mtv only takes action when it benefits them, they don’t actually care. If they did @cheynotshy would have never been accepted to @teenmom Where is the equality with these big corporations?”

He continued, “At this point, MTV needs to be held accountable for their racist behavior and discrimination!”

Jenelle has repeatedly defended her husband, claiming she will stand by him

In a 2019 interview with Us Weekly, Jenelle was quick to defend her husband against the claims of homophobia and racism, saying, “I think that’s just ridiculous because a lot of people even say he’s racist, but his best friend is black. And he also has no problem with gay people.”

The couple have recently had well publicized issues, but in 2018 Jenelle tweeted out “I will stand by my husband until the day we die…” and that seems to still hold true.

Teen Mom 2 will premiere with a new season on September 1 on MTV.
