“The execs at MTV are having a meeting on Wednesday to discuss firing Jenelle,” an insider snitched to Radar.

“It isn’t looking good for her,” the source explained. “They’re definitely leaning towards firing her.”

"Her world is very soon going to crash down around her. The network has no choice but to take action after such a reckless set of events, or risk losing the entire franchise," revealed the informant. "She's in serious hot water."

"Lmao why don't you go tell the homo and transgender parents to start teaching their kids better morals? Oh I forgot thats supposed to be normal," Eason wrote on his Twitter account.

As Radar previously revealed, after his Tweets, the cast of the show banded together to demand Evans’ get kicked off.

However, a source close to Evans insisted to Radar that she wasn’t getting fired.

Evans took down her controversial gun photo, but Eason refused to do so.

Both she and Eason both deleted their Twitter accounts “to not have to read the drama,” the source admitted.

The TM2 star released a tone-deaf statement in the wake of the scandal, saying: "David didn't understand how offensive people would get or how Twitter even works. Now that he realizes his voice is very strong within media/tabloids he has deactivated his account. He agrees he will keep his comments to himself from now on."

Evans tried to calm the storm by mentioning she has gay friends.

"David doesn't hate people from the LGBT community. My old manager was gay and used to be one of me and Davids close friends. We attended Farrah’s birthday in Miami with a lot of LGBT people there and he didn't act in any type of way. We went, had a good time and left."

She finally apologized, saying: "We are sorry for the comments that were made."
