90 Day Fiancé star Big Ed is in hot water with some of his fans following a recent accusation leveled against him. Ed is currently facing claims from a former co-worker and Tik Tok user that he sexually harassed her for 9 months. The Tik Tok user previously mentioned that Ed had sexually harassed her and that she fell under an NDA, but that she couldn’t keep her secret any longer. Now, she’s opening up with additional details about what went down. 

Big Ed thinks haters made him famous

Big Ed has faced a hefty degree of backlash as a result of how he has been treating his Filipina love, Rose, on their season of 90 Day Fiancé. Most notably, Ed has received hate for telling Rose to shave her legs, asking her to get an STD test, gifting her a toothbrush and telling her that her breath stinks, and marveling openly at her poverty in front of her family. 

Since then, the reality star has claimed that the hate simply makes him famous. He also claimed that he is, in fact, the most authentic participant in his season of 90 Day Fiancé. This went down when a fan wrote to Ed, “Kudos to you Ed. Some of these people are so damn mean and ignorant.”

Ed replied to the fan, “I know I get a kick out of this it’s so funny. Do you wanna hear something even more funny all the haters out there made me the most authentic reality star in 90 Day Fiancé history, look it up online. God bless everybody happy Easter I have to go make some videos. All my loves.” 

Ed received pushback from fellow cast members from his claim that he’s the most authentic member on the season. Notably, ‘Babygirl’ Lisa Hamme pointed out that nothing would be possible without the fans.

Big Ed’s coworker accused him of sexual harassment 

Now, Big Ed is facing a bigger controversy. Recently, a past coworker of Ed’s who uses Tik Tok took to the social media platform to accuse the 90 Day Fiancé star of sexually harassing her. 

The user, who goes by Lordakeet, posted a video explaining her distress at seeing Ed on television behaving poorly towards another woman. She made a video over which she wrote, “The moment of finding out the guy who sexually harassed me for 9 months has moved to his next victim…in front of all of America. I want to speak up but signed a nondisclosure agreement. But 9 months and years of therapy. I don’t know what to do. Supporting other women! Obviously he’s still a predator.”

Lordakeet has also specifically named Ed in an additional video, and has also since decided to come forward and share more details despite her trepidation in an effort to ensure that it does not happen to someone else.

Lordakeet discusses her experience with the ‘90 Day Fiancé’ star

In a new video, Lordakeet gave additional details on what happened between her and the reality star.

In the new video, Lordakeet explains, “I just want to share a couple things with you that I wish I would have known on the day I met Ed. Number one, knowing when to run. Number two, knowing that it’s okay to stand up for yourself even when you feel like you’re being really rude. Number three, knowing when someone is trying to manipulate you or groom you.”

Lordakeet continued, “On the first day that Ed and I met, one of the first things that came out of his mouth was, ‘Wow, I’m so happy that you’re hot, because I wouldn’t want to look at someone who is ugly all day long while I was working.’ Later that day he had put me in an armlock and put me to the ground. If I had been taught these skills earlier, I would have been able to save myself months of harassment and assault. I’m sharing this with you because I hope that it will help you prevent going through a traumatic experience like I went through.” 

90 Day Fiancé blogger John Yates shared the video on his Instagram page. Franchise alum Evelin Villegas commented on his post, “Ed is disgusting! It’s a sad reality we live in, always the victim is put in the place of doubt this is why so many victims are afraid to speak out.”

Big Ed has yet to respond to the claims laid out against him.
