90 Day Fiancé star Tom Brooks is a pretty divisive cast member. That being said, his ex, Darcey Silva, is fairly polarizing too. However, ever since Brooks and Silva broke up, Brooks has been under more scrutiny from fans than ever — and it’s thanks to his behavior on and off the show. Now, with more judgmental eyes than ever on his Instagram, fans are ripping into one of his more absurd-looking photoshoots.
Tom Brooks insulted Darcey Silva on the way out
Tom Brooks and Darcey Silva finally broke off their unsuccessful 90 Day Fiancé relationship. Fans were fairly certain for month that the two were finished, based on their interactions on social media. Tom Brooks frequently levels petty comments towards Darcey Silva on his Instagram story, which helped to give their relationship status away.
During their breakup, Silva was angling to get information out of Brooks about a photo of him with another woman. Brooks was evasive, and Silva was clearly frustrated. Brooks claimed that he could never get a word in edgewise when chatting with Silva anyway.
He went on to tell her that he felt annoyed by what he perceived as a hangup on Jesse Meester, her last 90 Day Fiancé lover. He then went on to tell her, “Your idea and notion of love is not me. You had it with him. But I love you in a different way. I love you like my sister.”
With fans already reeling from that doozy of a line, Brooks went on to ask Silva, “Did you put weight on?” Silva later retreated to the bathroom to cry after Brooks had left, saying he was not a nice person.
Tom Brooks continues to call women fat online
Tom Brooks made a half-hearted apology on Instagram for asking Darcey Silva about his weight. Instead of simply owning up to his mistake, he went ahead and blamed editing for the scene, as if they somehow forced the words out of his mouth.
Since his apology for his 90 Day Fiancé gaffe, it doesn’t seem as if he’s actually learned his lesson. Instead, Brooks has continued to use weight as a weapon against haters on his Instagram.
A Redditor was able to capture one such moment. A commenter asked Brooks, “Think it’s funny to body shame a woman[?]”
Instead of maintaining his composure, or the false persona of a posh educated man that he puts on, Brooks replied with, “Those in glass houses even the dog has en edge in you [sic].”
He then went on to add, “Look Leslie I’m sure you hear that all the time … you could try a diet.”
‘90 Day Fiancé’ fans rip into Tom Brooks’ nature photoshoot
It seems as if some 90 Day Fiancé fans have decided that if Tom Brooks is going to dish it out, they will too. One Redditor must have taken a dive through Brooks’ unintentionally humorous photoshoots, of which there are many, because they stumbled upon this gem.
The original poster entitled the photo, “Tom sitting outside of the TLC studio trying to think of more pathetic ways to get air time.
One commenter captioned the photo “peeping Tom,” and another asked, “Or pooping Tom?”
Another one joked, “Definitely taking a dump outside of Darcy’s house. She wouldn’t let him in to use the loo.”
A Redditor suggested that Brooks reminds them of Zoolander. They wrote, “Every time I see another picture of him and that stupid squinty looking face he makes in every single picture all I can think about is Derek Zoolander.”
