Jenelle Evans Was Just Fired From 'Teen Mom 2,' and Fans Have Thoughts

Jenelle Evans will no longer be appearing on Teen Mom 2, MTV announced Tuesday, after fans boycotted the show following the death of a dog at the hands of Evans' husband, David Eason.

In a statement to Us Weekly, the network said, "MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with him since. Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season."

Fans who had been demanding "Justice for Nugget" after Eason revealed he had shot and killed the family's French Bulldog after he alleged it nipped at 2-year-old daughter Ensley rejoiced at the news, taking it as a sign their protests were heard.

While fans' call to action may have prompted the network to cut ties with Evans, a number of major sponsors also dropped out from advertising during the show after news of Nugget's death broke.

"We have zero tolerance for animal cruelty and we can now confirm that as a result of this incident, our ads will no longer run during Teen Mom programming," pet care company Greenies tweeted soon after.

Chipotle likewise tweeted, "We are no longer airing our ads during episodes of Teen Mom," while Dove Chocolate echoed, "We in no way condone animal cruelty or the mistreatment of animals. We appreciate your feedback and wanted to share that we have stopped advertising on Teen Mom programming."

TWIX replied to concerned fans similarly, writing, "We in no way condone animal cruelty or the mistreatment of animals. We appreciate your feedback and wanted to share that we have stopped advertising on Teen Mom programming."
