AceShowbiz - Jenelle Evans' endless support for David Eason has landed herself in hot water. The "Teen Mom 2" star came under fire after she wrote a supportive comment in response to her husband's controversial pictures of him flaunting a confederate flag.
In the photos, which he shared on Instagram on Sunday, November 18, Eason could be seen standing at the top of the Grand Canyon as he proudly held up the flag in the air. Another picture featured him wrapping himself up in the flag while raising fist. "Just planting my flag in all 50 states!" he wrote in the caption, hinting that there were other places where he planted the flags on.
While many people slammed him for doing such a thing, Evans took to the comment section to leave a supportive comment. "Lmao you need to post that video," she said. Responding to his wife's request, Eason then posted a video of Evans filming her husband posing with a flag draped on his shoulder as she laughed and praised him, "That's awesome."
Her comment undoubtedly didn't sit well with many people, who were quick to slam the 26-year-old reality star for supporting her husband's love for confederate flag. "How sick that you support a racist man," one fan wrote as another similarly said, "Do you understand that the confederate states were for slavery?! The people who flew this flag during the civil war were racist! Does David know this? Unless... you two are racist."
Evans herself has yet to comment on the backlash, but Eason has responded to a fan who inquired about his reasoning for carrying the flag. "It's just where I'm from, my heritage. Kind like when people fly a flag that represent their states because it's where they are from."
"If someone think it has to do with racism or slaves they aren't thinking enough," he continued. "More racist people fly the beloved American flag, which was the flag flying on the American slave ships... No concern there?"
