Quite a few public figures have misplaced jobs and profitable endorsement offers in latest weeks on account of culturally insensitive feedback from their previous.
Now, it seems to be as if Maci Bookout’s husband, Taylor McKinney, is perhaps subsequent on the chopping block.
And as soon as they see the appalling feedback Taylor has made, Teen Mother OG followers most likely will not be operating to this man’s protection.
The offending tweets are from 2011, lengthy earlier than McKinney met Bookout and gained fame on MTV.
However the 31-year-old was already an grownup at the moment.
And he ought to have had the sense to know there’s nothing humorous about his so-called jokes.
Within the first tweet — which was unearthed and republished this week by the fansite Teen Mother Insanity — Taylor lashes out in homophobic fury all as a result of somebody provided him a chunk of sweet.
“No Mr. Male Receptionist on the Dr. I do not need a sucker I am not 12,” McKinney tweeted.
“And secondly guys do not supply different guys suckers … That’s homosexual.”
Sadly, McKinney’s tweets solely get extra ignorant from there.
“In case you hashtag an insult … your a f-g,” Taylor tweeted a couple of months later.
Clearly, anti-gay sentiments have been on McKinney’s thoughts quite a bit in these days.
Makes you surprise if he is executed something to handle these bigoted impulses within the years since.
If he has, the time to say so can be now.
But it surely’s not simply the LGBTQ+ group that has incurred Taylor’s ire.
No, it appears he has some kind of weird, pent-up rage towards the Black group, as effectively.
We’re undecided who Taylor is addressing right here, however his informal use of the N-word is just not okay now — and it wasn’t okay then.
Youth and altering requirements for acceptable language are sometimes used as excuses for such offensive language.
However neither will get Taylor off the hook right here.
Troublingly, his habits is an element of a bigger pattern amongst Teen Mother solid members.
Video of Tyler Baltierra using the N-word shocked followers of the present final week.
Previous to that, Kailyn Lowry was called out for racist remarks she made on the present.
Taylor Selfridge has been fired for bigoted feedback, however MTV has not taken any disciplinary motion in opposition to its hottest stars.
McKinney might be nearer to Selfridge than the others by way of reputation, however Maci’s star energy is perhaps sufficient to save lots of his job.
Sure, that is how issues work at MTV in 2020.
To the chagrin of many followers, Taylor has but to apologize for his remarks.
Maybe he is determined to put low and hope that Maci can get him out of this one.
