Jenelle Evans’ Husband David Eason Says He’s Proud to Be White & Straight, Days After Jenelle Defended His Homophobic Rant on ‘Teen Mom 2’ Reunion

“I’m just saying that the world would be a much better place if everyone was more like us!”

Days after Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans attempted to defend her husband’s hateful words about the LGBTQ community, David Eason took to social media once again to remind everyone that he’s standing firm in his homophobic beliefs.

On Wednesday, David posted an image to Instagram with the message “Straight Pride, it’s natural, it’s worked for thousands of years and you can make babies.”

As if David’s “message” wasn’t clear enough, he accompanied the post with a very David-like caption.

“For the people who get offended when you call them what they identify themselves as… I’m also proud to be a white man, a southerner and a redneck! #pride.”

Naturally, David’s post struck a nerve with quite a few of his followers.

“I’m proud of who I am, I am someone who respects others and their lives without degrading them,” one comment read.

“I just think it’s an issue and it’s not really pride when you have to attack somebody else’s life style to have pride in your own,” another person wrote.

David responded to some of the nay-sayers in the comment section of his post.

“So I can’t be proud of who I am?” David wrote. “I said I’m proud to be white, I didn’t say I’m racist. My sister is married to a black man you fol. Go gag on someone else’s burrito.”

In response to the backlash he received for the post, David followed it up with an apology—just kidding! Instead, he posted a selfie featuring his caveman beard and middle finger.

A post shared by David Eason (@easondavid88) on

“To all you sensitive b*tches with feelings who unfollowed me today… This is for you, sit on it and twist,” he wrote. (He later deleted the caption but the photo remains.)

Yet again, people took to the comments to share their thoughts on David and his less-than-friendly words.

“You must have an awful lot of demons,” one follower wrote. “What you keep posting and putting out there is nonsense. Looks like you need to do some deep soul searching or something. Sit on that and twist it!”

As for David’s better (we guess?) half, she appears to be standing by her man. In addition to telling Dr. Drew during this week’s reunion special that David’s hate-laced tweets are not his fault because, “it’s been the way he was raised,” Jenelle went on to like her husband’s controversial posts about white- and straight-pride.

Jenelle did attempt to clear her husband’s name during her interview with Dr. Drew, though. When Dr. Drew asked Jenelle if she thinks David will ever change his hateful views on the LGBTQ community, Jenelle implied that it’s unlikely.

“He doesn’t hate those people!” Jenelle oh-so-eloquently-stated during the episode. (In case you were wondering, by “those people,” Jenelle was referring to members of the LGBTQ community.)

“He doesn’t run around the house saying, ‘I hate gay people,'” Jenelle added.

As ‘Teen Mom 2’ viewers will remember, David has used gay slurs in the past on-camera. During the Season 8A Reunion in 2017, David used a gay slur toward Dr. Drew, and his comments were caught via backstage cameras.

This was a low point in ‘Teen Mom 2’ history…and that’s saying something!

David will not be on camera (or allowed on-set) during ‘Teen Mom 2’ Season 9, which is currently filming. David was given the boot from MTV following his homophobic Twitter rant in February. As The Ashley previously told you, Jenelle fought hard to get David back on the show for Season 9, or to at least have him be allowed on-set with her during filming, but the network refused to budge.

  1. Thankfully, there is gay people to take care of all the neglected babies that were created by negligent straight people like you, David.


  2. He gets uglier and fatter by the day. Woohoo White Pride! Not surprised at all that this is who David really is.


  3. I wish he would stop growing that filthy ugly beard. He looks like that bigfoot from the jack links jerky commercials.


  4. MTV is now the ANTI-GAY, NEO-NAZI, BIGOT CHANNEL! By tuning into MTV you are supporting this a-wipe and his views.

    BOYCOTT MTV!!!!!

  6. I don’t understand the big deal , he’s going about expressing his beliefs in an ignorant wAy but , he had a right to his beliefs. Maybe he needs to quote the scripture that brings him to these feelings instead of blasting it in a nasty way. He doesn’t have yo be on board with homosexuality, anyone bashing him for not approving of it is s hypocrite big time.


    1. I doubt that David’s beliefs are based on scripture – and even if they are, it doesn’t make his hateful and homophobic views any more acceptable.


    2. Right. The violent, angry, loser who beats on kids and pregnant women and neglects his kids to get high really believes in scripture. Let’s call a spade a spade. David isn’t religious – he’s just an abusive a$$hole who loves being controversial, playing the victim, and lashing out at innocent people.


  7. ?????
    That’s the only thing he’s proud of so yeah… What a winner…
    Let him have it people, he’s pathetic. He has nothing else going for him, other than being white and straight.


      1. Yup. She tweeted about it yesterday while trying to shade Kail (it’s deleted now because of the backlash and an amazing clap back by Kail). Poor kid is stuck on The Land getting homeschooled by Jenelle. It’s actually really scary.


        1. Oh my God! How can she think she is capable of teaching her ANYTHING?! But then I remember Duggars think that too so…sometimes I am really happy homeschooling is so strict where I live, very few people decide for it because they don’t feel capable of doing it. (And kids have to take a test at the end of the year and if they fail, it’s back to public school for them.)


          1. It’s just a ploy concocted by David to keep them isolated on “The Land” because Jenelle can hardly be bothered with her own children, so I sincerely doubt she’s suddenly taken serious interest in Maryssa’s education. Also, Jenelle is not qualified to homeschool a preschooler, let alone someone Maryssa’s age.


          2. Maryssa will also need to take standardized tests, so we’ll see how that goes. Hopefully, this nightmare ends soon. Meanwhile, Jenelle sends her toddlers to daycare all day every day because she can’t be bothered with them.

            And, of course, after her tweet claiming that she was so busy homeschooling Maryssa, she later posted a picture of her “sick” on bed. I guess that school day was pretty short.


    1. One can learn a lot from Jenelle. Maybe she’ll teach Maryssa key life skills such as:

      – stealing mom’s credit cards for an impromptu road trip with her boooooyfriend.
      – Making money online selling sketchy laxative weight-loss tea.
      – Picking a fantastic soul mate
      – Pulling over the car for roadside twerking
      – How to properly handle getting cutoff on the highway, especially with a child in the car.

      Obviously the list can go on and on.


  8. Yikes – Jenelle posted on Twitter something about homeschooling Maryssa. I hope she just meant prepping before the school year. Jenelle is barely literate and probably can’t even multiply whole numbers. That is scary and the ignorance will continue to flourish on the land.


  9. All the people who continue to follow David and Jenelle are feeding into this craziness. MTV keeps Jenelle because she has millions of twitter followers. David gets attention because of these followers. If people would stop following Jenelle and David then she would be fired from Teen Mom and her and David would go silent. Please stop contributing to their attention seeking behavior, its your civic duty to unfollow these fools.


  10. This guy is suck a joke. He’s everything terrible people associate with white, Christian, conservatives and he lives up to the stereotype beautifully. I feel bad for anyone who indemnified as a white, Christian conservative cause these people make you look TERRiBLE. Also, someone should tell David homosexuals can have biological children. It’s actually pretty common now.


  11. How can anyone feel a sense of pride after having cps at their door like 50 times and spending more than half of his sons life unable to see him because of a restraining order?!?! Regardless of your gender, sexual orientation, race, or religion the thing I believe is most important is being a good parent which these two are clearly not.


  12. He goes on and on……remember kids, drugs are bad for you. What the hell is wrong with this man?! You can’t be proud of something the majority of people are. You missed the point, you aren’t a minority. GO AWAY!


  13. 1. “White pride” and “I’m proud to be white” IS racist and does not come from a place of innocently sharing one’s heritage. And no, you can’t compare African-Americans saying “Black is beautiful” or any other encouraging quote that they or other minority groups use in order to stand out in this world that is majority white and mainly caters to whites. (Quotes, our own networks are still important in today’s society. If minorities, especially blacks don’t uplift ourselves and our own communities, nobody else will.) It’s not a matter of “oh, well there is nothing wrong with liking your skin color.” No, he’s being facetious and nasty. Nazi apologists and extremists also use “white pride” and “proud to be white” as their primary slogans and have for years. Same for all the racist rednecks. Be careful who you lend your excuses to.

    2. It’s disgusting that he seems to have such an issue with the LGBTQ community. Men like him are probably the ones who are battling their true sexuality and are confused on what they like themselves. So, they publicly bash “the other side” because deep down, they envy how free and happy they are being their true selves. David, come out of the closet already! It’ll make you feel so much better and maybe make you a little more appealing to other people.


    1. You’re a hypocrite. You look at white pride as racist but you don’t look at black is beautiful as racist. There’s nothing racist about being proud of your race. Also please get your facts straight. Globally whites are minority.


      1. Ava I can’t tell if you’re being intentionally slow or if you’re really just that thoughtless. Black people have a VERY different experience in America/Europe than white people do. So yes they DO get to be proud because they face racism every day of their lives. Also who cares about race minority or majority globally? David doesn’t live in China or Uganda … he lives in the US where white people are the majority and have found success, wealth, and advantages on the backs of people of color.


        1. Oh please. Everyone gets the same opportunity in life. If you’re not successful it’s because you didn’t work hard enough. It has nothing to do with skin color. Blacks have more than enough help to get by and achieve success and yet when they fail they want to scream it’s because of their skin color, not because of something they did or did not do. This country was founded and was built on the backs of white men of yesteryear.

          Racism isn’t a one way street. Whites face racism as well. Hell every race does.


          1. @Antonio You are the problem in America right now. You call anyone racist that has a different opinion than you. The word racism doesn’t even have any meaning anymore because it’s thrown around like confetti nowadays. It’s insane.

            I completely agree with Ava. People need to stop victimizing themselves due to their identities. If America oppresses people of color than why are there POC in every branch of government? Why is there affirmative action? Why is there this huge double standard that lets POC get away with saying and doing racist things all the time that white people would be condemned for? Give me a break, Antonio.


  14. If you have a problem with David saying he’s proud to white and straight but you don’t have a problem when someone says that they’re proud to be gay or proud to whatever race then you’re a hypocrite. Nothing David said was wrong. I do have to laugh though. He used the same picture I see on trad twitter.


      1. It’s his opinion. Honestly I don’t give the gay community any thought. They have their legal marriages, which was a mistake, and they still won’t quit whining about not being accepted. Ffs they even have gay pride parades. Where’s straight pride parade at? Gays are like vegans. They can’t go an hour without mentioning they’re gay.


        1. When was the last time you heard about a kid getting bullied for being straight, or getting kicked out of his family, or getting tied to a truck and pulled 5 miles until he was dead? THAT’S why you don’t need a Straight Pride parade.


          1. Well, I don’t completely agree with Ava but I don’t completely agree with you either (I usually do). I don’t think you need to be bullied to have pride in something. People can take pride in whatever they choose to. People get bullied and/or treated badly by others for a variety of reasons. It’s not just reserved for homosexuality. Obviously homosexuality was not accepted for a very long time in Western culture but I think we’ve come a long way in it’s acceptance. I think people forget that and still act like oppression is still a huge issue which is not true. I’m not saying there homophobia doesn’t still exist. Of course it does. I’m just saying that people need to stop acting like we still live in a time where gay people are severely oppressed. If that was true, the gay pride parades wouldn’t exist and gay marriage certainly would not exist either.


          2. Shea, the treatment you described is not only reserved for LGBTQ members. African Americans have gotten that, plus murdered children and families for centuries and nobody bats and eyeball. Plus the children are still bullied and called racial slurs to this day. Yet, I bet you’re one of the people who cape and defend LGBTQ pride parades, but have an issue with BLM or any other event or quotes catered to only blacks. Because to you, “All Lives Matter”, right? He also said he’s proud to be white. He took a direct dig at all monitory groups and the only thing that annoyed you was what he said about homosexuality?


        2. Members of the LGBTQ community are still discriminated, harassed, attacked, killed, risk loosing their jobs, their rented house, their intire career in the USA. How is that being accepted?
          Other members around the world risk being prosecuted, jailed, hung for who they are.
          Awareness and action is very necessary.
          And let’s not pretend people of all colors and background are alway treated as it should: equally.
          When you belong to a group that is discriminated and you want things to change, you will have to speak up so things can change.


        3. Don’t worry Ava honey, the LGBTAQ community doesn’t give you any thoughts either. Nothing more annoying than someone with an unearned sense of superiority, like you.


    1. This is gaslighting. There is no such thing as a white person who says “I’m proud to be white!” and feels the need to put it all over social media Who is not also a racist. Being proud to be white (not Polish, Irish, etc) is complete nonsense and anyone stomping their feet about it is really just displaying some pretty eye roll worthy white fragility.


    2. I am someone who respects others and their lives without degrading them

      Then whoever you are, you should really stop hijacking David Eason’s twitter account. That dude has a temper.


  15. But anyways did you guys all see how cute Chelsea’s new baby is?! Their family is so cute and she is such a good mom!!

    Oh hi Jenelle.


    1. And Chelsea’s house is so peaceful and happy. There is like a zero percent chance CPS will ever visit the DeBoer home. Also a zero percent chance a grandparent or ex will file for sole custody of any of Chelsea’s kids out of concern for their safety. And probably zero percent chance Cole will say something stupid / hateful to get him kicked off MTV.


  16. I’m proud to be compassionate, altruistic, and open-minded. Mostly. I can’t manage to be any of those things towards David or Jenelle.


  17. I wish people would stop posting stories about this ugly fuck. He doesn’t deserve to be on this Earth. He’s ALL bad !!!


  18. There is nothing wrong with being proud of your skin color or your sexuality. Although, there is something wrong when you think you’re better than other people that have a different identities and lifestyles than you. David, you’re a bigot and obviously take pride in that. As a fellow southern conservative, I am disgusted by you. You do not represent us. All you represent is bigotry and abuse.


  19. Wait til he finds out gay people can also make babies! Whoo-boy is he going to be mad!

    Once his meal ticket got her contract signed, he wasted no time ratcheting the hate up to 11.


  20. Jenelle if there was an award for worst relationships, girl you would win. I thought it couldn’t get much worse after Kieffer shooting you up with heroin but my lord it does. I don’t know how you find your men. Not only did you have a baby with this crazy but you married him. I just don’t see any hope for Jenelle anymore.


  21. There’s no such thing as “white pride” that ISN’T racist. You can 100% be proud to be Irish, polish, German, English, etc. Not one person would bat an eye at someone who said they celebrate their heritage. This dude knows he’s a piece of shit and likes to press peoples buttons. Jenelle needs the boot from MTV like yesterday.


  22. I’m white and straight. I’m not proud of it because I have nothing to do with that. I’m also not proud of my eye color or my right-handedness or any other features I was born with. I do have pride in my education, family and career, my treatment of others, you know, things I can control.

    But you do you, David.
