When MTV cancelled their latest hit reality series "Buckwild" in the wake of one cast member's death, an enraged producer said it wouldn't be the end ... but it has now.

"MTV is the most hypocritical network out there," Williams told THR. "Van and Susanne can keep promoting pre-martial sex and promoting leaving the baby after you have it [on 'Teen Mom']. I'm so glad they have found their moral bar."

When "Buckwild" breakout star Gandee died in a mudding accident, MTV immediately stopped production on the series, but didn't cancel it until a week later. "After careful consideration, MTV will not be moving forward with season two of 'Buckwild' in West Virginia," the network said in a statement. "We love the cast and the show and this was not an easy decision, but given Shain's tragic passing and essential presence on the show, we felt it was not appropriate to continue without him. Instead, we are working on a meaningful way to pay tribute to his memory on our air and privately."

Though some fans and cast members thought it was the right decision, others were outraged. See some tweets from "Buckwild' cast members in the wake of the cancellation below:
