This not exactly just in:
David Eason is not a fan of the LGBT community.
This may be the least shocking sentence ever written on The Hollywood Gossip, considering Eason’s penchant for slamming homosexuals and transgenders pretty much any chance he gets.
Back in February, for example, he scoffed at the notion that anyone within the aforementioned community is “normal” and said their parents ought to teach them “better morals.”
He also said he would tell his kids to avoid gay people because if you “lay down with dogs you get up with fleas.”
The guy is a real charmer.
You’ve got yourself quite a catch there, Jenelle Evans.
About three days after Eason made the above remarks, he was finally fired by MTV.
But this development did not shut David up. It didn’t make him see any light or arrive at any life-altering realizations.
And it certainly didn’t make him any more tolerant.
Eason has continued to attack pretty much anyone different than he is, with the latest case in point coming in the form of an offensive meme.
It features a bride and a groom and the words: Straight Pride. It’s natural, it’s worked for thousands of years and you can make babies.
This is, of course, an extremely dumb and pointless message.
Go ahead and be proud of your sexual orientation, straight people. Go ahead and make babies. No one is stopping you and no one is judging you for it.
Along with the image and its caption, Eason wrote:
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.
So THIS is Eason’s argument, huh?
He’s simply aghast over why he’s received flak, and even been fired from a job, simply because he calls people “whay they identify themselves as?”
Is that what he was doing in this rant earlier this year?
Thankfully, many of Eason’s own followers called him out for his idiocy in response to this meme.
“This is so ignorant David. You have the right to say what you want but this is not necessary you know what your [sic] doing by posting crap like this,” one commenter calmly wrote.
“Freedom of speech is one thing, spreading and inciting hatred is another.”
Well, just to be clear:
Eason is perfectly allowed to express his opinions. No one is violating his freedom of speech.
But there are consequences for expressing those opinions, not the least of which is getting fired from a high-paying job in which you bring your employer shame and criticism.
Eason’s freedom of speech would only be violated if he were imprisoned solely for his beliefs.
Here’s the ultimate irony, however:
Evans herself has basically admitted her husband is intolerant of gay people!
She said as much on the Teen Mom 2 reunion special that aired on Monday night.
“He doesn’t hate those people,” she said of the LGBT community. “He just doesn’t want his kids to grow up and be that way.”
And what if his kids came out as gay?
“He’ll still love them and adore them, but he just wouldn’t agree with their lifestyle,” Jenelle said in defense of Eason, concluding on this special:
“It’s the way he was raised. … [But] he doesn’t run around the house saying, ‘I hate gay people.'”
Oh, he doesn’t?!? We take it all back then!
Why did we ever think Eason thought less of gay people?!? Our bad, guys.
