TEEN Mom fans are slamming David Eason and Jenelle Evans after 14-year-old Maryssa Eason posed with a large gun in a photo on Instagram.
The photo was posted to the teen's Instagram Stories.
In it, she posed with one hand near the trigger and another on the barrel with the gun pointed down
The photo was shared to the Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2 Reddit page, where fans ripped David and Jenelle, 29.
The original poster called the photo "scary," while another said: "This isn't a 'hunting gun'. It's an assault rifle. It's meant to kill humans."
Another commenter added: "Look at her parents tho. They've shown time and time again that they are irresponsible gun owners."
One fan commented: "At least she seems to know a couple of things and keeps her finger off the trigger," adding that "Someone taught her something right."
Another person chimed: "If she was the child of responsible gun owners, Ii wouldn't think it was a big deal."
Someone else suggested: "it's scary because they probably don't teach her how to properly handle it."
Similarly, another Reddit user wrote: "It's disturbing only because she most likely isn't being taught proper gun safety."
Jenelle and David have had a troubling history with guns in the past.
Last year, the former MTV star's husband came under fire for killing and eating the family's goat, Elvis.
David spoke openly about killing the animal, which was born and raised on the family farm.
He showed video of himself cooking "goat nuggets" before detailing where the meat came from the following day.
David showed followers two pieces of raw meat, writing: "This is where goat nuggets come from, for all those asking."
He then looked into the camera as he bit into a piece of grilled goat and said: "If you're wondering what a goat taste like off the grill, well I'm here to tell you: tastes like chicken, tastes a little like beef or pork and it's real good."
The fired MTV star then confirmed: "this is Elvis, the little baby we had last year."
He added: "It's f**king delicious, people should eat more goat."
Fans were apparently in disbelief about David killing the goat, so he took it upon himself to prove it.
David posted footage of the goat's severed head sitting in a trash bin.
He said: "For those who don't believe it was goat, it is. His name was Elvis."
While fans were shocked that David would kill and eat an animal beloved by his children, it's not the first time he's done something so cruel.
In 2019, David admitted to shooting and killing the family dog.
He confessed to the killing on YouTube, trying to justify the decision to critics.
David said at the time: "About Nugget, she was a loving dog to me but she was not loving towards out kids at all.
"Any time we were taking a video of the kids, we'd have to delete the video and not post it because she wouldn't play nice. She'd bite their feet, bite the tiers [sic] of their bicycle. She wasn't always vicious but she had vicious tendencies."
He went on to say: "She was really kinda mean, we put up with it for a very long time. She bit Ensley more than one time and the first time it happened, we should have gotten rid of her."
David confirmed that he shot the dog, saying: "I took it upon myself to put the dog down and that's the way my family has done it when a dog bites someone.
"There were times when a dog would bite me and my dad would put it down. A lot of people around here, if a dog goes through their yard, they'll just shoot it."
In the wake of the shooting, David and Jenelle were let go by MTV.
A spokesperson addressed the decision in a statement, saying: "MTV has 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."
Jenelle attempted to rehab her image, but struggled.
Since the animal shootings, the pair have found themselves at the center of many a controversy.
Jenelle recently came under fire for seemingly supporting Kyle Rittenhouse after he was found not guilty in the shooting of three people during a protest while David was recently arrested.
The pair have been criticized for not wearing masks, for racist tweets, and more.
David was arrested in 2020 for assault with a deadly weapon and communicating threats.
Jenelle has offered some apologies, but fans are not quick to forgive and forget. Especially when another controversy follows so soon after.
