Jenelle Evans had the trolls getting straight to work on Monday as on-off estranged husband David Eason posted a bikini photo of the rocky “former” couple on the beach. The former “Teen Mom” 2 star is currently in quarantine on account of the novel coronavirus – given the family beach trip making headlines over the weekend, though, 28-year-old Jenelle appears to be spending COVID-19 with the man she once had a restraining order against.
Keep scrolling for the photo and the explosive wave of backlash.
David’s Instagram photo showed him and Jenelle cozying up on an abandoned sand beach as they sat on a tree trunk. Jenelle was flaunting her curves in a super-tiny black bikini, seen shot fairly far out as she sat on Eason’s lap. Both were rocking shades, with David wearing shorts and a blue sweater.
“You will always be the love of my life @j_evans1219 I’m so happy that we have become so close and bonded recently. Here’s to a lifetime of our own kind of quarantine, boat rides, ATV trails, living off the land, etc. I don’t think we are going to have a hard time staying secluded lol we already have been for awhile ??,” David captioned the shot.
The comments section took less than 30 minutes to bring in the slamming, the obvious trolls, and – fortunately for Jenelle – some back-up.
Hurtful remarks regarding the mom of three’s shape didn’t hold back.
“Dang sis, go for a jog!” one comment read.
“Wow she got chunky,” another fan said, with a third saying Jenelle had gotten “chubby.”
Fans were quick to pick up on the body-shaming, though, with some appearing unimpressed by the digital space torturing.
“God haters everywhere, she looks great. People gain weight and lose weight. Let them be happy,” one user wrote, with another writing:
“Why do people feel the need to attack her body!!!! She’s beautiful at any size. People are ridiculous.”
Replies also saw fans comment on Jenelle and David appearing to be back together – October 31, 2019 marked Jenelle announcing her divorce from Eason, with a subsequent restraining order (now lifted) seeing the star claim she feared for her life around him.
“Only back together because her plan to get back on MTV failed. Now her only source of income is posting news about herself lmao,” one fan stated – over 70 users liked the comment in under an hour.
“Here we go again…,” another said.
Jenelle was, however, backed up as she confidently posed with her man.
“Let them be jeez!,” one fan wrote, adding: “She’s trying to have her family, maybe he’s changing, maybe he wants his family together, too,” before saying that it “takes two to break or heal a relationship.”
Eason made global headlines in 2019 for fatally shooting the family dog Nugget after he alleged it bit his 3-year-old daughter Ensley.
“Here’s to new beginnings,” another user encouragingly wrote.
Earlier this year, Jenelle said:
“My mind keeps going back and forth on what I should do. I do have an apartment in Tennessee, and I still do have my house here, so at the moment I’m kind of back and forth… I haven’t made an ultimate decision of what I’m doing,” she told the media outlet, adding:
“I have no idea what I’m doing.”
