'Buckwild' City Mayor

Happier than Pig in S***

'Buckwild' Got 86'd

EXCLUSIVE

0409-danny-jones-shain-gandee-buckwild
The Mayor of the town where "Buckwild" was filmed is crackin' out the fried chicken and sweet tea now that the show that reinforced Southern stereotypes has gotten the ax.

Charleston, West Virginia Mayor Danny Jones tells us, "I’m relieved and happy the show is cancelled, and so is everyone around here. The show does nothing for us and exaggerates every negative stereotype about us."

Mayor Jones also put on his programming hat, surmising "Buckwild" without Shain Gandee is like biscuits without gravy.

We broke the story ... Shain was found dead in his truck from carbon monoxide poisoning last week, following an off-roading trip with his uncle.

Now if Mayor Jones could only turn cinder blocks into tires ... think how nice those lawns would look.

Wow...don't see how it would have been possible for you guys to have been more flagrantly condescending, (economically) bias-baiting and flagrantly stereotyping of the mayor of Charleston, the region and the people in that area in that nasty little piece of slam-journalism. Way to stay classy, TMZ..

So who is this "us" you refer too? I realize you are the mayor of your crap area of the world but you DO NOT speak for everyone, fatcat. Let's say some nice words about this dead human being instead of slamming MTV, huh?

negative stereotypes.......if you don't live the dream there wouldn't be a stereotype. Reminds me of a friend's cross country trek who stopped at a bar to get a quick meal,,,built in urinals around the bar.....nice

West Virginia is not in the south, so it would be reinforcing a Northern stereotype.

i agree, MTV and all there reality shows need to go. Play some DAM videos or dont have hours of reality crap marathons of shows on constantly instead of playing music videos. VH1 is another one to that should play more music to.

You would have to be a complete idiot like Danny Jones to think that everyone in West Virgina acted like the people on Buckwild. You suck, Danny!

West Virginia is hardly traditional Southern, the mountain region is Appalachian but that is not exactly the same.

Wow, Seriously TMZ! I believe you are putting words into the man's mouth. I am from WV though I have moved out of state, I still have many friends and family that are in WV. I can assure you that "Buckwild" does not have the popular opinion among natives and this is what Mayor Jones was trying to relay on the cancellation. I mean how would you like it if MTV rolled into your state or city and filmed the "trash" or lowest of the low in the area to depict where you are from? Every city has a bad area with a bad class of society and MOST would not want their background affiliated with that stereotype of people. With that said WV is also a place that holds a great degree of compassion and empathy in its culture concerning its citizens and visitors alike. This phenomenon is called hospitality and it is also why I think that you are full of sh*t.
