mtv suspends buckwild production after shain gandees death

After the shocking death of Shain Gandee, MTV has decided to put production of Buckwild's second season on pause for the time being.

The 21 year-old reality star's lifeless body, along with his uncle's and a friend's, were found in his 1984 Bronco. It is assumed that the three of them died due to exposure to carbon monoxide.

The network recently expressed their grief and released a statement saying:

"We are shocked and saddened by the terrible news about Shain Gandee, and those involved in this tragic incident. We are waiting for more information but at this time, our main concern is for the Gandee family and their friends. Our thoughts and prayers are with them. Shain had a magnetic personality, with a passion for life that touched everyone he met and we will miss him dearly."

Meanwhile, Shain's family is trying to raise money to make sure he has a proper burial, as they apparently didn't make much from the show.

His cousin, Ashley Gandee, is organizing an off-road trucking event known as a "mud run" in the hopes of rallying the support of their community in Proctorville, Ohio. She recently talked about the fundraiser and said:

"It's hard to provide a proper burial. It's already tough with the loss of family members … expenses are tough as well."

Our hearts go out to his family and friends, and hopefully they are able to raise enough money to send him off the right way.

R.I.P. Shain.

    So he dies off roading in his truck and his family wants to raise money for the funeral by doing the same? Kinda funny.

    MTV got 3 million views from this show on its first season. The LEAST they could do is pay for the funeral expenses for this poor guy. You know MTV is going to make a lot more money in rating$ when they decide to air Buckwild season 2. Too bad his family is left picking up the pieces by having a mud run which is odd given how he passed away but that's their choice. I know these kids were wild but I think the show elevated to another level where they just were doing dangerous things and getting out of control for the cameras.

    Yeah, so MTV exploits these people's stupidity. They rank in the cash off of these people and then they die and don't help pay? That seems ridiculous. MTV is worth almost 6 billion dollars, but they don't help the people that help them make that money.

    Of course the jews that run MTV are too cheap to pay for it.

    I can't wait for the news of this idiot and the other two to be over.

    MTV should pay.
