90 Day Fiance star Blake Abelard doesn’t hold back on his thoughts on Big Ed Brown
Blake Abelard told Domenick Nati that he doesn’t like Big Ed Brown. He had many reasons why he didn’t like the fellow castmate. Blake slammed Big Ed for being “weird” during his “inappropriate” Instagram Live videos with “young girls.”
“I don’t know what’s going on with this whole Big Ed thing,” Blake explained. “How I feel about the situation? That’s jacked up. Like, that’s messed up, if it’s true. But if it is true, that’s f***ed up, man.”
Domenick mentioned that 90 Day Fiance fans are uncomfortable with Instagram Lives that Ed has been hosting lately. Sometimes, the reality star speaks with girls who look underage.
“See, that does get me weird,” Blake said. “Like, the Lives, that is weird. That part is a little bit weird.”
As TV Shows Ace previously reported, Big Ed came under fire for assault allegations. Also, his Instagram Live videos have come under scrutiny since fans noticed Big Ed allegedly talks to young girls, as per meaww.com. Some of the videos have gone viral on YouTube.
Even 90 Day blogger John Yates addressed some of Big Ed’s controversial chats. He posted a screenshot of a clip along with a lengthy explanation as to why Ed hasn’t been doing live videos lately. Despite the allegations, there are still many people who follow Big Ed on social media.
Cortney Readarnz feels that Big Ed is “inappropriate”
Blake isn’t the only one who feels this way. 90 Day Fiance alum Cortney Reardanz also feels that Big Ed Brown is “inappropriate.” Back in May, she appeared on The Domenick Nati Show and she talked about the photos in Big Ed’s bedroom.
“He has like photos of all his clients on his bedroom walls,” Cortney explained. “It’s like lingerie photos. I felt that was super inappropriate. I would be uncomfortable if I was one of the models and I didn’t know my photographer was posting my lingerie pictures in his bedroom.”
She also didn’t like the way that Big Ed treated Rose. Most of his castmates feel the same way.
“How he talked to Rose. He went to a third world country and then he acted like, ‘Ew, you’re poor,’ basically,” Cortney explained. “I felt so bad for her and her family. They opened their home to him and I feel like he just kind of exploited them.”
On the 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days “Tell-All” episode, Ed admitted that he truly loved Rose and didn’t mean to hurt her feelings. However, Rose made it clear that she doesn’t want anything to do with Ed. She also revealed that he reached out to her and tried to get her naked on camera in exchange for cash.
