One of the nine cast members of Buckwild died on Sunday after crashing his car in Sissonville, West Virginia.
The bodies of 21-year-old Shain Gandee, his uncle, and an unidentified friend were discovered in their vehicle after being reported missing 31 hours earlier.
The car’s tail pipe was immersed in mud, causing the authorities to believe the passengers died of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Danny Jones, the mayor of Charleston, called for the show to be cancelled.
Of the few cast members on the show already two have had legal issues and now one has died. The show only enhances the negative stereotype the Kanawha Valley already has. I hope the show’s life is short.
Very poor choice of words in that last sentence. Production of MTV’s hit show about rural life has reportedly been suspended, so there’s a chance the insensitive mayor will get his wish.
I wonder if they would have cancelled Jersey Shore if The Situation had died of alcohol poisoning?
