Is This The WORST Show To Be Aired on TV? Bride and Prejudice Left Hundreds of Viewers in Total Shock and Outrage.
Family drama went through the roof last night with the premiere of Bride and Prejudice kicking off on Channel Seven.
The controversial show follows six couples seeking approval from their families to marry the love of their life, but there was one person in particular that left viewers wanting to throw things at their TV.
Mum Fatima, one of the most determined mother-in-laws Australia has ever seen, insulted her son’s fiancée in a bid to break them up.
Sayat, 19, and his fiancée Jess, 20, are young and in love, but Sayat’s mother has made it very clear she’s willing to do anything to ‘destroy’ their wedding.
“Jess is very dirty,” Fatima said in a piece to the camera.
“Disgusting. She smells like cats.”
“I believe Jess is a sl*tty party girl,” she continued, “I don’t want my son to date a wh**e like that.”
Throughout the show, Fatima’s insults continued – only later she said them straight to Jess’ face when the couple attempted announce their engagement to Seyat’s parents.
Looking down on Jess, Fatima tells her son, “She knows why I don’t like her,” before continuing to criticise her cleaning skills, claim she’s made her son’s life worse and insult her for being from a different culture.
“I will never accept Jess,” Fatima says.
Jess is clearly hurt by the harsh words, but this seems to only provoke Fatima further, “She’s got no personality and she’s never happy! She’s always upset.”
At this point, the young woman reached breaking point and fled from the conversation to her bedroom where she broke down crying.
“She didn’t have to be so harsh,” Jess cried when Sayat – who was sitting right next to her – naively asked what’s wrong. “She just sits there like I’m nobody, like I’m not worth anything.”
“That’s not something someone should do. Especially not a mother, not somebody that’s supposed to be mature.”
Unsurprisingly, outraged viewers had plenty to say on Twitter with one person fuming, “What kind of woman, what kind of mother sits there and tears down another woman for no other reason than she enjoys being vicious?!”
Meanwhile another Lesbian couple Ange and Dylan had to deal with Ange’s disapproving father John, who is a devout Christian and firmly against same-sex marriage.
‘Don’t you want me to get married?’ Ange asks her father, with John bluntly responding: ‘Not to a woman.’
John strongly believes ‘being gay is a sin’ and doesn’t hold back in telling his daughter what he thinks.
‘That’d be like me marrying my sister, it’s totally wrong!’ he stated. ‘One way is right and one way is wrong.’
John also insists that his Ange’s sexual preference is just a phase and that she’s just confused.
A third young couple, Hank and Lily, have to deal with Hank’s conservative parents Terry and Margaret, who don’t approve of feminist Lily’s left wing values.
‘Lily is a controlling, feminist vegetarian!’ rages Margaret. ‘And it doesn’t gel with Hank or in the family.’
Terry added: ‘She’ll go on about women not getting equal pay and all the jargon that the lefty programs put out, and she believes it!’
Viewers are certainly not holding back with their comments –
“These mothers and fathers make me sick just accept your kids for who they are and who they love.”
“As long as they make your kid happy it should be all that matters.”
Do we really need to see this kind of bullying on our TV?
