So we told you earlier this week that MTV has decided to cancel "Buckwild" in the wake of the death of Shain.....where they told the folks over at TMZ - "Given Shain's tragic passing and essential presence on the show, we felt it was not appropriate to continue without him. Instead, we are working on a meaningful way to pay tribute to his memory on our air and privately." MTV is also planning an entire day of 'Buckwild' programming this weekend. The 'Buckwild' cast and producer used their Twitters to voice their displeasure...
Thinking of filming for @mtv without Shain hurts me clear through my soul but the thought of turning our backs on his dreams is worse.— Cara Parrish (@CaraFnParrish) April 10, 2013
We want #buckwild to go on as much as you do. Shain would be so pissed about this.— katie (@MTVs_Katie) April 10, 2013
The show has been cancelled and my heart is in a million pieces. Shain would want us to carry on. His parents want this. So do we all.— Shae Bradley (@mtvshae) April 10, 2013
The whole cast wants to continue filming and raise ten kinds of hell in Shains honor. Give you all the best second season ever. Or a movie!— Shae Bradley (@mtvshae) April 10, 2013
We just got the news: show is cancelled. Cannot fucking believe this. We still have people fighting for us....— Anna Davis (@MTV_Anna) April 10, 2013
So you all as our fans and ppl who love Shain, tweet to @mtv if you want to keep the show. Show your support. Loretta and Dale want this.— Anna Davis (@MTV_Anna) April 10, 2013
Then, Janelle from Teen Mom had a few words of input..
@mtvs_katie no one really asked u guys and producer to put our show down like that either....— Jenelle Evans (@PBandJenelley_1) April 10, 2013
Finally..show producer J.P. Williams on 'Buckwild' being cancelled: "This is the network that has shows about teen pregnancy. They'll stick by a show that allows you to abandon a child, but a kid dies by accident doing what he does for a living [mudding] and they cancel the show? There's something that smells of s--- here on every level. My job is to protect these kids. This will get ugly.” (The Huffington Post)
