'BUCKWILD' CITY MAYOR CANCEL THE SHOW

The Mayor of Charleston, West Virginia -- where "Buckwild" is filmed -- says he hopes MTV will pull the plug on the controversial show after one of its stars, Shain Gandeewas found dead today

Mayor Danny Jones tells 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.” 

The show has been surrounded by controversy from the beginning ... you'll recall, back in December WV Senator Joe Manchin blasted the show as a "travesty" that profits off of shameful behavior and urged MTV to cancel it even before it aired.  

Adding to the problem ... two "Buckwild" were recently arrested for separate incidents -- Salwa Amin and Michael Burford. Amin in connection with a drug raid and Burford on suspicion of DUI

As TMZ previously reported ... 21-year-old cast member Shain Gandee was found dead earlier this morning -- along with his uncle and one unidentified passenger -- inside a Ford Bronco, in Sissonville, WV.

Thoughts? Do you think they should cancel the show?

Ehhh but drugs weren't really a focal point of the show, and really, neither was Salwa.

The DUI...how many other people get DUIs every day? A ton!

I would think the mayor would use this opportunity to show the dangers of some of these "backwoods" activities. I hope they don't pull the plug on the show. Sounds kinda corny but I kinda want to see how they honor Shain's memory. I really liked him on the show :(

I couldn't agree more.  They didn't die because of the show.

My 15 year old daughter was heartbroken when she heard he had died. I never heard of the show, but she took it pretty hard. She doesn't want it canceled.

It's very sad what happened. Idk maybe the mayor cares about his town and doesn't want it known by the behaviour being demonstrated by these kids (salwa)

I would take a look at it if I were you. Not something I'd let my 15 year old watch, personally.

She doesn't like tv and never watches anything at home. She was watching at her friends house. I didn't hear about it until yesterday.
