It didn't take long for Jenelle Evan's combative husband David Eason to slam Bristol Palin being hired as a new Teen Mom OG cast member!

As RadarOnline.com readers know, Eason was fired from Teen Mom 2 earlier this year after he went on a homophobic rant.

On Friday, Eason took to Instagram on Friday to post a statement in red which said, "I know MTV is comprised of hypocrites but how do you fire me and hire Bristol Palin after all her homophobic and racist remarks."

His attack on former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin's daughter, who previously appeared on reality TV's Dancing with the Stars, might cause Palin family haters to rejoice, but Eason added in an Instagram caption that he wasn't against Bristol herself.

"Nothing against @bsmp2 personally but everything against @mtv . Liberals at their best trying to confuse, persuade and penalize," he wrote.

But was Eason wrong to tar Bristol with the "homophobic and racist" brush?

She hasn't yet commented on Eason's charge, but in 2012, Bristol was bashed on Twitter after speaking out against then-President Barack Obama's decision to support gay marriage.

She criticized him for supposedly letting his daughters influence his stance on the issue.

As E! Online reported at the time, Bristol wrote, "that's not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids' worldview."

Despite that statement, Bristol famously split from her baby daddy Levi Johnston! She went on to marry someone else.

Bristol also caused a firestorm when Obama was still President after he invited Muslim teen Ahmed Mohamed to the White House after he got into legal trouble over bringing a clock to school that cops mistook for a bomb.

Bristol, the daughter of former GOP vice presidential nominee Palin, attacked Obama's invite to the young Muslim boy as divisive in a blog post, writing, "This encourages more racial strife that is already going on with the 'Black Lives Matter' crowd and encourages victimhood."

As for the Teen Mom 2 scandal, Eason deleted his Twitter accounts after intense backlash over his homophobic comments and co-stars refused to film with him unless he was fired, as Radar sources said. Fans were angry at MTV, too, and he was soon let go.

"David Eason's personal comments do not reflect the views of MTV. With six weeks left of production on 'Teen Mom 2,' effective immediately, we are ending our relationship with him," the network said in a statement released on February 20, 2018.

In his latest problem reported by Radar, Eason, the owner of Elite Marine Diving and Underwater Services, received one-star reviews because of his alleged unprofessionalism.

Meanwhile, this week, the Teen Mom OG cast – including Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell, and Amber Portwood — were blindsided by the announcement of Bristol joining the show.

Bristol, a mom of three, is a new cast member after Farrah Abraham was fired.

Reality TV isn't new to Bristol , 27, as she did DWTS, season 11 in 2010.

In November 2010, Bristol Palin also made an appearance on her mom's TLC travelogue/documentary Sarah Palin's Alaska.

In summer 2012, she starred in the Lifetime show, Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp, then performed on DWTS: All-Stars later that year.

Bristol hasn't addressed Eason's diss, but she wrote on Instagram, "I am excited to join MTV's 'Teen Mom OG.' I look forward to sharing my experiences and hope that I can help others on their journey."
