90 Day Fiance: Tom Brooks To Go On Break Ahead Of TV Comeback
Looks like the negativity of social media takes a toll on Tom Brooks. The Before the 90 Days returnee said he’s going on hiatus for indefinitely. Darcey Silva’s ex-boyfriend Tom confirmed his plans to step away from the limelight amid the hype of his 90 Day Fiance comeback.
Ever since his debut on TLC, Tom, along with Darcey Silva, has dealt with the usual spiteful comments that many reality cast experience. And, he also faced endless rumors and criticism even after the season of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days ended.
And now that he’s returning to TV, no doubt Tom Brooks draws even more attention from viewers. Then again, Tom’s very active on IG, interacting with fans, and constantly working to keep the public eye on him. Maybe the 90 Day Fiance Brit never realized social media’s a double-edged sword.
Tom Explains Why He’s Taking Time Off
Despite his decision to take a break, Tom Brooks clarified that he will still make a few updates from time to time. The 90 Day Fiance cast member claimed he will continue to “honour” a “few paid partnerships” on Instagram and other platforms. Other than that, Darcey Silva’s ex-flame intends to go quiet online for awhile.
Tom Brooks also explained what made him go on hiatus. He pointed out that the scrutiny he’s under lately got out of hand. “Everything I do seems to be blown out of proportion,” Darcey Silva’s 90 Day Fiance ex said. He also offered generic apologies “to anyone… I may have offended”.
Then he said it wasn’t intentional. But that doesn’t ring entirely true. Because, Tom Brooks posted selfies with giant wax lips and a ring pop on his finger, obviously poking at Darcey Silva. That was one of many casual disses 90 Day Fiance fans noticed. Some laughed along while others clapped back on Tom Brooks.
90 Day Fiance: Online Hiatus Because of Darcey Silva?
Many are now curious to know why exactly triggered Tom Brooks’ decision to go silent on Instagram. Some think it has something to do with Before the 90 Days veteran Darcey Silva. Recently, fans piled on Tom Brooks with major backlash over him sharing an unflattering photo of Darcey.
Earlier this week, Tom Brooks put up a scene from their upcoming return on the 90 Day Fiance franchise and tagged his ex. While the photo showed him looking quite nice, Darcey Silva appeared a mess. Apparently, it didn’t sit well with many fans, with some accusing him of choosing the bad pic on purpose.
Others called the TLC cast member names and bombarded his comments with hate. Tom Brooks claimed he meant nothing by posting the bad pic of Darcey Silva. He claimed he was just promoting the new Before the 90 Days season.
Now the backlash seemed to bite and Tom Brooks is all-quiet on the social front. Wait and see how long he can stay away from his Insta-addiction…
