David Eason is showing off his fatherly affection with a recent Instagram post of himself and his daughter, Maryssa, who he shares with ex-wife Whitney Johnson. This appears to be the first happy post the controversial figure has shared since his estranged wife, Jenelle Evans, announced their split.

The photo shows him at the fair with Maryssa, and the comments are shockingly positive to say the least.

It's the fair!

David received comments on the post above such as, "I'm sorry about u and Janelle! [sic] Hope all is well." Another added, "I'm so sorry to hear about your split." And a third said, "Nice to see you are both out enjoying life and making the best of it."

These comments seem really surprising in light of the negative publicity David seems to frequently receive. After he killed Jenelle's dog, their children were taken from their home and Jenelle and David spent weeks in court hearings to get them back. There are also documented 911 calls from Jenelle, citing domestic abuse. With actions like this, social media comments had been generally pretty negative towards David.

One user commented on how unexpected all of the positivity was on David's page, writing, "Now [J]enelle left him everyone loves him lmao wow."

What's even more astounding is that Instagram users were actually hitting on David, and another person weighed in, writing, "Damn, Jenelle leaves and all the desperate housewives come out to play."

Hopefully these flirtatious fans don't own dogs!
