On June 25th, fans were able to watch how Eason, Jenelle Evans’ husband, was forced to exit the show following his homophobic Twitter rant in February.

At the time, MTV was quick to make the announcement on Twitter regarding the former reality star’s termination.

Since posting a photo of Evans holding a gun just after the school shooting that killed 17 people on Valentine’s Day, fans had been petitioning to get Eason fired from the show.

He made matters worse when he responded to the tweets with an anti-LGBT rant. More details about his tweets on our Twitter page. Follow us at AmoMama USA.

Following the Eason’s Twitter rampage and his termination, Evans made a statement to TMZ and defended her husband.

She clarified that her husband had nothing against the LGBT people and claimed that he doesn’t hate them.

Although, Evans was unable to explain why Eason said the things he said on Twitter

Evans explained, "David didn't understand how offensive people would get or how Twitter even works. Now that he realizes his voice is very strong within media/tabloids he has deactivated his account. He agrees he will keep his comments to himself from now on."

She ended her statement apologizing for the comments her husband made.

Even though the drama happened months ago, it was once again brought to life when the show featured everything in the most recent episode.

It showed when Eason was terminated, which was on February 14th, the same day the Parkland, Florida school shooting occurred.

On the show, Barbara Evans, Evans’ mother, pointed out how the couple was not paying attention to the news and how they failed to understand the impact of the photo they took on social media.

Upon learning of her husband’s termination, Evans initially refused to continue filming.

Evans made it clear that she was standing by her husband's side, but was apologetic for his mistakes.
