Earlier this month, MTV ceased production and canceled BUCKWILD following Shain Gandee's sudden death. Despite the show's decent ratings, MTV concluded, "Given Shain's tragic passing and essential presence on the show, we felt it was not appropriate to continue without him."
BUCKWILD producer J.P. Williams did not take kindly to the news, bashing the network for its teen pregnancy shows, and vowed to acquire the rights to continue the show with another network. According to Williams, his negotiations with MTV came to an abrupt end on Friday, and he did not win. Williams went on to accuse MTV of hypocrisy.

There will be no more BUCKWILD, on any network, and Williams could not be more angry.
Williams spoke out against 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom again, saying, "MTV is the most hypocritical network out there. [MTV execs] Van [Toffler] and Susanne [Daniels] can keep promoting pre-martial sex and promoting leaving the baby after you have it. I'm so glad they have found their moral bar."
Williams clearly doesn't understand that being sweet-tempered – rather than sour-tempered – is more likely to get him what we wants. That said, he's not wrong, as MTV should be embarrassed by Teen Mom these days.
In other BUCKWILD news, country music star Jason Aldean recently performed in Charleston, West Virginia and dedicated his encore to Shain.
