Public outrage follows last nights episode of Married at First Sight.
The public has spoken out against Channel 9 calling for the series Married at First Sight to be axed.
Blogger, Jen from Styling Curvy shared her disgust saying:
“I am so appalled at the TV show Married at First Sight and the so called ‘experts’ who just allowed a cheating couple to rejoin the ‘experiment’ as a couple. WTAF?!
“The experiment is to be matched by the ‘experts’ and commit to a marriage. These 2 were NOT matched and are NOT married!! They both chose to leave tonight! So let them go!
“Instead this ‘couple’ had the front to ask for a free ride to explore their attraction and a TV station said ‘Yes, we will reward your cheating ways’.
“Shit like this makes parenting a tougher gig. My boys were raised in a house where the Huz and I have a good, decent, respectful marriage. You’d think that would be enough to teach our kids about how relationships look
“But no. Our kids are raised in this new age and are influenced by social media and shit shows like MAFS.
“What I would really like to have seen would be for the ‘experts’ and the TV station to grow a set and take a decent moral stand and NOT reward indecent and immoral behaviour and allow these 2 cheaters back into the ‘experiment’
“Instead they pimped themselves put for ratings. What an absolute bloody shame.”
Her post attracted hundreds of comments with many people agreeing with her thoughts and others saying they don’t understand why anyone even watches the crap.
Petition to axe the show attracts thousands of signatures
A petition has also been launched calling for the axing of the show. It has so far attracted over 11,700 signatures.
Natasha Rae said she started the petition for the people who are against adultery, cheating and partner swapping.
In the petition she wrote: “Tonight’s episode of Jess and Dan “hooking up” and the therapists allowing them to continue in the experiment is outrageous.
“This show has highlighted and given the message that adultery, cheating, lying and partner swapping is OK and you’ll be rewarded if you partake in it. It’s wrong and immoral and should be banned from ever being broadcasted again. Shame on you Channel 9″, she added.
Do you agree that the show needs to be cut?
