Damn, MTV’s “Buckwild” is hardcore.
First Salwa “Bengali in Boots” Awin was arrested and then rearrested on drug charges, then Michael “Bluefoot” Burford was arrested on DUI charges.
Now Shaine “Gandee Candy” Gandee has been found dead in a vehicle with two other bodies.
TMZ reports that he was last heard from at 3 a.m. Sunday, when he said was going to go four-wheeling. The show has been criticized for propagating stereotypes about people from Appalachia, but a funny thing about stereotypes is … eh, let’s not go there.
Despite all the drama, no one seems to be watching the show. But that didn’t stop MTV from renewing it for a second season.
Investigations are ongoing into Gandee’s death.
