This made me cry a few times.”

Eason reportedly got into a disagreement with someone via Twitter about parenting and made negative comments about LGBT parents. He also tweeted that he wouldn’t let his kids around gay or transgender and never let them “be that way.”
The criticism for him was then directed at MTV for allowing him to remain on the show. Within a day, MTV communications announced that he had been fired from the series.
