Major sponsors have been canning their advertising on “Teen Mom 2” since star Jenelle Evans’ husband David Eason reportedly had been “covered in blood” after the killing of the tiny French bulldog named Nugget late last week in North Carolina.
According to The Blast, Eason “grabbed the dog by the throat and slammed it on the ground.” He threw the helpless pup into the side of the kitchen table after videoing the dog nipping at the couple’s two-year-old child. A photo didn’t show any skin broken – the crying child’s cheek however was bright pink.
As if throwing Nugget against the kitchen table wasn’t enough, Eason picked up the dog’s lifeless body and threw him out the door, took him into the woods and then grabbed a gun and shot the puppy to death.
Greenies, a pet dental treat company tweeted:
“We have zero tolerance for animal cruelty. We can no confirm that, as a result of this incident, our GREENIES ad will no longer run during Teen Mom programming.”
In addition, Persil ProClean, Dove Chocolate, Chipotle and TWIX cancelled their advertisements on the MTV series.
Jenelle has been reported to have left the home she shared with Eason after the death of her dog. Allegedly, Eason beat and shot the tiny French bulldog after it nipped at the face of his two-year-old daughter. On his since deleted Instagram post, he defended his actions stating,
“…You can hate me all you want but this isn’t the first time the dog bit Ensley aggressively. The only person that can judge weather [sic] or not a animal is a danger to MY CHILD is ME…”
An investigation continues. A $10,000 reward has been offered by the Animal Hope & Wellness Foundation for information leading to the location of Nugget’s body.
“No arrest has been made, even after finding out he not only shot Nugget – but slammed her neck into the kitchen table, and beat her almost to death.
They claim that Nugget’s body has not been recovered. But it was stated that she was shot next to the forest by their home. We are offering a $10,000 reward to the person that contacts our foundation with the whereabouts leading to finding the body, or can hand over the body to authorities…”
