Jenelle Evans and her husband David Eason might have been kicked off of Teen Mom 2, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t making headlines…again.
Eason is marketing his new venture under the name Black River Forge. However, PopCulture.com reports that after he announced the company on Facebook, followers began commenting that not only was the name already taken, but that the Texas company the name belongs to should make sure they cut ties with Eason immediately.
One user wrote on the real Black River Forge page, “I came here to say the same thing. He’s a scary guy and I wouldn’t allow him to associate your brand with his name. He has a reputation I'm sure most have heard about.”
The company thanked the followers, said that they were not familiar with Eason, and that they would look into the matter. Shortly after, they posted the following statement:
“David Eason is not currently, and has never been, a member of our cooperative. He has never had any affiliation with our group in any capacity. Until August 7th, 2019, we had never even heard of him. Any use of our name, graphics, likeness, or identity is done so entirely without our permission. We would prefer to avoid pursuing legal action, but are prepared to do so if necessary.”
Naturally, Eason didn’t respond to the copyright infringement allegations, but Evans did. The 27-year-old posted on Twitter that apparently Black River Forge isn't actually the name of his company. Why he'd be using the name on all of his posts then, we have no idea.
Will Eason and Evans end up back in court yet again? I don’t think anyone would be surprised.
