MTV fired “Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans after her husband shot and killed their French bulldog, USA Today reported.

USA Today reported MTV cut ties with the 27-year-old Evans after her husband, David Eason, 30, shot and killed her dog, Nugget, last week after he said it nipped their 2-year-old daughter in the face. Evans said last week she was considering divorce.

In an post about the incident, Eason wrote: “I don’t give a damn what animal bites my baby on the face … whether it be your dog or mine.”

Evans later said Eason took Nugget and shot her in the woods.

MTV in February 2018 fired Eason from the show after an apparent homophobic rant on Twitter.

Evans’ ex-boyfriend, Kieffer Delp, last year was sentenced to up to 3 years in state prison after he pleaded guilty to running a meth lab out of a McKees Rocks apartment. Delp was featured in early seasons of “Teen Mom 2” with Evans.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
