This is disturbing. Former Teen Mom 2 star David Eason is known for speaking his mind online, and most of his opinions are controversial and shocking. But fans were still outraged after Jenelle Evans‘ husband allegedly took to Facebook this week to share some more of his transphobic views — and he even said he would “slap” his children if they came out to him as transgender.
“Serious question, what would you do if one of your kids came to you and said, ‘Dad I think I should be a boy/girl?’” one fan asked David on his Facebook, according to OK Magazine. David, 30, allegedly wrote: “I would slap the s–t out of them.” The fan replied, “Man you’re really trying to lose your kids,” and David wrote back, “Smickity [sic] smack.”
Another Facebook user wrote: “Kids that feel they are born in [the] wrong body should be able to choose what they want and [you] should love [and] support them.” David hit back, “Born in the wrong body? Well instead of getting body implants maybe they should have a new brain implanted?” After the comments came to light, David’s Facebook seems to have been removed, deactivated, or deleted.
This isn’t the first time David has posted controversial comments about the LGBTQ community online. Back in February 2018, David was discussing a Southern Caroline bill that would allow concealed carry in schools on Twitter. David argued for the bill so that children could be protected in case of a shooter on campus, and a Twitter user suggested that education and good parenting would be the best way to protect his children.
“And just what makes you think you have a right to tell me how to be a parent?” David fired back in a now-deleted tweet. “Because you think you know me? LMAO, why don’t you go tell the homo and transgender parents to start teaching their kids better morals? Oh, I forgot, that’s supposed to be normal.” Just one day after David posted his tweet, MTV released a statement confirming that he would no longer appear on Teen Mom 2.
