TEEN Mom star David Eason has threatened to use his crossbow on a fan who launched at him on social media.
The reality star joked he would use the fan who lashed out at him for killing his family dog as “target practice” as he brandished the ranged weapon.
David, 33, found himself in hot water last year after the news broke that he shot and killed the family dog, belonging to him and wife Jenelle Evans.
The parents were temporarily stripped of custody of their three children and lost their prime-time spot on Teen Mom 2, MTV’s iconic MTV program.
David took chihuahua Nugget out to the back yard and shot him after the dog displayed “aggressive” behaviour towards their daughter Ensley, four.
This is what one fan chose to mention in a new video. In it, the father-of-2 can be seen wielding a hunting bow.
David captured himself wearing camouflage as he concealed in the North Carolina forest while holding the weapon.
“Feels good to be in the woods,” He wrote to his fans and they couldn’t help but wonder what the reality TV star was hunting.
“Hunting for chihuahuas?” One of his followers asked a cheeky question about the small dog they had shot in their backyard in spring 2019.
“No, just looking for people like you on my land so I can use em for target practice,” David responded with a threat.
Teen Mom star Jenelle, 29, opened up about the incident earlier this year, insisting her other half was “apologetic” after the killing.
Appearing on Candace in May, Jenelle recalled: “So basically, it was me, my daughter and my other two kids and David and we were all sitting in the living room and you know, my daughter and the dog were having like a cute little moment.
David began filming far away, and Jenelle went to give the dog a hug. The dog almost bit her in the face.
“Then, when that was over, David took the dog outside to take care of it.
“My kids were inside the house at the time. They did not see anything, did not hear anything. David didn’t announce what he was doing or anything.”
Candace then asked Jenelle what she meant by saying David was “raised” that way, with the former Teen Mom 2 star explaining: “He’s very country.
He was born in the South and was raised there. They would take it down if they saw a dog being aggressive.
“And David said, you know, if I took the dog to the humane society, they probably would’ve done the same thing because of the aggression.”
Later in the conversation, Jenelle revealed that David has thought a lot about the incident and has “apologized so much.”
Jenelle and David share four-year-old daughter Ensley together, while the former reality star is also the mother to 11-year-old son Jace and six-year-old son Kaiser.
Jenelle stated that she wanted to keep the incident secret at first, but it quickly became public and led to the couple being fired by Teen Mom 2.
After they were let go from the show, the controversial pair claimed in a YouTube video that Teen Mom’s production team were afraid to work with David and would ask not to go to their house.
In response to the claim, an MTV spokesperson: “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.”
