February 2018: Eason fired by MTV
Five months later, Eason was fired by MTV from Teen Mom 2 after going on a homophobic and transphobic Twitter rant, at one point calling members of the LGBT community "abominable."
"David Eason's personal comments do not reflect the views of MTV," the network said in a statement at the time. "With six weeks left of production on Teen Mom 2, effective immediately, we are ending our relationship with him."
The network did not fire Evans. Eason continued to make headlines for being a controversial figure on social media, joking to a commenter on Facebook that Evans was "13 weeks" pregnant, which her representative later denied. He also continued to share homophobic memes and posts on Facebook.
August 2018: Evans defends Eason
During a Teen Mom 2 reunion taping that aired in August 2018, Evans defended her husband and the remarks he made. "He thinks he shouldn't have said it the way he did, but he still stands by his views," she said. "He just doesn't want his kids to grow up and be that way."
When asked how he would react if his kids grew up and told him they were gay or transgender, Evans said that he would "still love them and adore them but he just wouldn't agree with their lifestyle."
October 2018: Evans accuses Eason of assault
A few months later, news surfaced that Evans was hospitalized on Oct. 13, 2018 after an alleged assault. Later in the week, the 911 call was released in which Evans told the operator that Eason pinned her on the ground and hurt her to the point where she couldn't move her arm.
"My husband, he just assaulted me," she said, through tears. "He pinned me down on the ground in the yard, and I think I heard my f—ing collarbone crack and I can't move my arms."
During the call, she also claimed that Eason "got violent because he was drinking."
Police confirmed that she was hospitalized, although she canceled the ambulance she initially requested and arrived via a private vehicle. She deleted her Twitter account after the incident, although her Instagram account continued to be active.

Eason did not officially comment on the situation, although he shared an Instagram post writing that he and Evans "have never been happier, thanks for asking!"
