honestly I really don't watch this show (I know I made a thread previously about some Sun or Mirror article re: some good looking Dr chap being rejected by the plastic Essex bird types...) but this article appeared on social media (I don't read Cosmo either FWIW) https://www.cosmopolitan.com/uk/rep...alflowTW&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social WTF??? It's a game show isn't it? As far as I can tell from youtube clips of previous shows they've had girls call each other various words that can't be typed here, scream and shout and square up to each other... call each other ***** or slags... guys square up to each other. The show deliberately messes with the contestants emotionally with dubious lie detector tests given to members of different couples, bringing on ex partners, bringing on new girls/guys who inevitably cause "drama" by splitting up established couples etc..etc.. Yet in spite of all that pretty appalling behaviour apparently a guy smirking and acting a bit sarcastically when breaking up with someone has caused a twitter **** storm It's apparently "domestic abuse" now... they've stretched things a bit by calling it emotional abuse in the first place tbh... but now they're literally conflating it with domestic violence by making use of a broad term like "domestic abuse". He might well be a bit of an arse but I mean in terms of things to get outraged about on a show like that it just seems bizarre that a bloke being a bit sarcastic and not particularly emotional when splitting with someone is up there as the worst and warrants a charity coming out with a warning and various publications (it seems to have hit the BBC and HuffPo too) carrying the warning..
