As news of Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada's reality show cancellation broke, fans flocked to social networking site Twitter to vent their outrage.
The couple, who has been married just five weeks, was embroiled in a domestic dispute on Saturday night which led to Johnson being arrested and Lozada being hospitalized. Vh1 has subsequently canceled their reality show just weeks before it was scheduled to air and the abrupt cancellation has prompted complaints from the public via social networking sites.
"What?! They canceled the Evelyn & Chad show?! Oh hell no. I'm mad," one Twitter follower with username Beauty Queen tweeted.
"What?? You have to be kidding me, I waited months for Ev & Ocho show. Vh1 are so wrong, let's boycott the network!" Lisa tweeted.
"Noo I wanted to see Ev and Ocho's wedding!! Why did they have to cancel though? I was hyped after Vh1's latest promo! #disappointed," Carla tweeted.
The Vh1 network cited "unfortunate events" in its official statement and referred to Johnson's, 34, domestic violence charges as serious.
"Ev and Ocho" is a reality TV show which documented the troubled couple's journey from being engaged to happily married.
Johnson, an 11-year NFL veteran, met Lozada, 37, in 2010 on Twitter and proposed months later before the couple tied the knot on July 4 in a lavish ceremony that was filmed for their reality show.
Although Lozada is yet to speak out regarding Saturday's incident, it is understood that she had confronted Johnson on Saturday after discovering a receipt for condoms which is reportedly when violence ensued, according to Davie Police Department Capt. Dale Engle.
"It gets pretty heated," Engle told The Sun Sentinel. "By the time they get home here in Davie it's pretty heated. She alleges he leaned over and head butted her. He says she leaned towards him and that they butted heads. Needless to say, she has a good laceration on her forehead."
Johnson, who was subsequently let go by the Miami Dolphins in light of the incident, was bailed out of jail on $2500 on Sunday and ordered to stay away from Lozada.
