We already knew former Teen Mom 2 star David Eason was homophobic. I mean, that's why he was ultimately fired from the MTV series. Jenelle Evans' husband famously tweeted out hateful messages, which obviously caused major backlash for the married couple. The network then took the appropriate action.
But David has obviously learned nothing from it.
He's come under fire yet again today, as he posted an extremely homophobic photo to his Instagram. The worst part? His caption defends his reasons behind posting it. I don't think he even believes he's doing anything hurtful...
"For the people who get offended when you call them what they identify themselves as," David began in the caption. "I'm also proud to be a white man, a southerner and a redneck! #pride."
I don't know whether to get offended or just laugh at this point. What is David doing?!
Of course, the comments section has blown up, with tons finding David's post highly offensive. "Oh you make me sick," one wrote, while another added, "You can have your own beliefs and opinions but just be a D about it," and a third commented, "You're disgusting. Please do us all a favour and get off social media."
David's post comes just days after Jenelle defended his homophobic ways to Dr. Drew during the Teen Mom 2 reunion. “He doesn’t hate those people,” she said of the LGBT community. “He just doesn’t want his kids to grow up and be that way.”

When Dr. Drew then asked Jenelle what David would do if any of his kids are gay, she defended him again. “He’ll still love them and adore them, but he just wouldn’t agree with their lifestyle," she said. "It’s the way he was raised. … [But] he doesn’t run around the house saying, ‘I hate gay people.’”
The backlash both Jenelle and David continue to get is clearly not unwarranted.
