Buckwild: Charleston Mayor Hopes MTV Show Is Cancelled

buckwild canceled?Following the death of Buckwild star Shain Gandee, the Mayor of Charleston, West Virginia hopes that the MTV show is cancelled.

Mayor Danny Jones told TMZ, “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.”

Along with his uncle and an unidentified passenger, Gandee was found dead this morning in a Ford Bronco in Sissonville, West Virginia. There was no sign of foul play. Gandee had been reported missing over the weekend.

Buckwild castmembers Salwa Amin and Michael Burford have recently had run-ins with the law. Amin’s been connected with a drug raid and Burford was reportedly arrested on suspicion of DUI.

MTV released a statement that said, “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.”

Production of Buckwild has been suspended.

What do you think? Should MTV cancel Buckwild?

    Never heard of the show, don’t care to know about it. Though it doesn’t surprise me that it’s an MTV show quality, those shows are mainly crud now.
