‘Teen Mom 2’: Jenelle Evans Might Have Just Lost a Sponsorship Due to an Instagram Post
Jenelle Evans just can’t seem to win. After getting kicked off of Teen Mom 2, she’s just had issue after issue. Though Evans hasn’t been on MTV in a while, she has still been able to make money through sponsorships and appearances. But recently, it appears that she may have lost a sponsorship due to fan outrage.
Jenelle Evans and David Eason lose custody of their children
People really began to get upset with Evans after she married David Eason. Eason commonly made homophobic remarks which eventually resulted in him getting kicked off of Teen Mom 2. Later, his actions had an even bigger consequence.
When he shot the family dog in front of Evans’ kids, the kids were removed from their custody and fans berated the couple constantly on social media. Eventually, Eason had to admit to killing the dog. He said that he did it because the dog was aggressive towards his daughter, Ensley.
“It was a situation where my daughter, her health, her safety was in danger,” Eason told People Now.
“This was something that nobody wants to ever have to do. The dog was aggressive. Yes, she might not be huge or whatever, but you know when a dog bites a child on the face more than one time, then it should never be around the child again. If you give the dog up for adoption, one day it’s going to be around children again.”
Jenelle Evans and David Eason break up
After losing custody of her children and getting kicked off of Teen Mom 2, Evans had finally had enough of Eason. She broke up with him and announced the split via Instagram.
“I’ve mostly kept off social media the past few days because I’ve been focused on making some big life decisions,” she wrote. “I’ve lived my life on camera since I was 17 years old. And a lot of it hasn’t been pretty. But it’s been my life.”
“I know I need to make changes. I’m starting that now,” she wrote. “The kids and I have moved away from David. Nobody gets into a marriage expecting it to end but I know that’s what is best for me, and for my kids. Today I’ve filed papers to start that process.”
But lately, Evans has been spending a lot of time with Eason, which has caused fans to wonder how serious she was about the breakup.
Evans recently posted a picture of her holding her daughter Ensley as an advertisement for Peanut, a social networking app for mothers.
“This is such a sentimental photo to me, it was taken when Ensley was born,” Evans wrote. “Becoming a mother was really overwhelming for me. There were so many emotions going through my head, ‘Will I be a good mom? How will I do this?’ I was so scared and nervous. I know I needed support from other moms but I didn’t know where to turn to. If you can relate to this, you should join Peanut.”
The post was soon deleted without much explanation as to why, but according to one Twitter user’s screenshot, it could have been because of customer backlash.
“You will get a lot of [emails], DM’s and backlash over this,” the person DMed Peanut on Twitter. “Research would have been better.”
“Thank you very much for bringing this to our attention. We are dealing with it ASAP,” the representative responded. “The content has been removed.”
