MTV Star Cory Wharton has responded to the network’s firing of Taylor Selfridge over past racist tweets in a tear filled Instagram Live session.
During the Live, on June 10th, Cory clarified that he has not severed ties with MTV over their decision but that he is heartbroken that Taylor was fired. “I know this girl better than anyone.” Cory was devastated that Taylor has been singled out for insensitive tweets that she has apologized repeatedly for. He stated that if MTV wants to go down this road he hopes they “hold everyone accountable.”
He went on to let fans know that anyone disappointed that they didn’t get to see the Birthing Special, that was pulled from MTV at the last minute, will get to see a birth special next week. The couple will introduce their daughter Mila on their YouTube channel: The Wharton Family. “You guys can watch it next Wednesday on our channel. It won’t be the [MTV] special but it will be a better one!”
Cory thanked fans for their support and love and gave a shout out to all the fans that did get to see the Birth Special in Canada. (MTV did allow the special to air in Canada.)
It will be interesting to see how many views the birthing special gets on YouTube. Most fans seem to be very upset with MTV for this decision and are very disappointed in the special being pulled.
