90 Day Fiance alum Tarik Myers recently slammed fellow cast member Big Ed Brown for dissing Rosemarie Vega‘s home country. Both Big Ed and Tarik Myers found their foreign lovers in the Philippines. But, Ed had some choice words when he landed in the Asian country. What did Tarik have to say?
90 Day Fiance: Big Ed Brown Uncomfortable in Rosemarie Vega’s Country
Big Ed Brown landed in the Philippines to meet Rosemarie Vega on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days. And, it’s a big adjustment for him. There’s always an element of culture shock when Americans travel to foreign countries to meet their potential spouses on the TLC show. And, that’s definitely the case for Big Ed.
Big Ed Brown isn’t happy with the way Rosemarie has to live when he arrives in the Philippines. And, he let TLC cameras know it. There’s a lot of poverty in the Philippines. And, Big Ed Brown didn’t hide the fact that he doesn’t like it. At least not while he’s there.
Ed Brown says on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days that he worries about where he will sleep. Everything is open where Rosemarie lives. And, Big Ed doesn’t look forward to his stay with her family. Meanwhile, the roof leaks and he worries about the electrical situation with rain coming down. But, one 90 Day Fiance star thinks he disrespects Rosemarie’s home and country.
90 Day Fiance: Tarik Myers Slams Ed Brown for Dissing the Philippines
Tarik Myers met Hazel Cagalitan in the same country. And, he moved there after finding love with her. So, he knows a thing or two about living there – as well as things about the culture and the people. And, he isn’t happy with how the photographer reacts while with Rosemarie’s family.
Tarik Myers went in on him, calling Ed the “creepiest” cast member in 90 Day Fiance history. Tarik added that he “took great pains” to respect the culture, the poverty, and the struggle in the country. And, that’s something he feels Big Ed fails to do based on how he reacts on Before the 90 Days.
Tarik Myers slammed Big Ed Brown even more, saying he makes Americans look “intolerant” and “callous”. Meanwhile, he said Ed better “be glad” Tarik isn’t on Pillow Talk. Because, he’d be “flaming yo goofy a**”. With all the shade Tarik threw, he’s clearly not happy with Ed. And, he even took issue with the claim Big Ed Brown is the most “authentic” cast member based on his remarks.
Is TLC Editing Responsible?
Big Ed Brown character is a big part of this season’s 90 Day Fiance ratings. But, there’s definitely some backlash based on recent comments he made on Before the 90 Days. And, Tarik Myers isn’t the only one taking issue with his commentary. But, is TLC editing to blame?
Certainly, it’s possible TLC did some creative editing to make Big Ed Brown come across the way he did. But, based just on what the episode shows, his comments rub a lot of viewers the wrong way – including Tarik Myers. Big Ed Brown didn’t respond to Tarik. But, it’s worth watching to see if he addresses this in the coming days.
