90 Day Fiancé fans certainly have a lot of new drama to play with following Tom Brooks’ latest chat with Darcey Silva. During a recent episode of Before the 90 Days, Brooks and Silva met up for coffee to discuss their relationship and see where things are going awry. After Silva rejected Brooks’ suggestion of friendship, the reality star asked a question about Silva’s weight. Brooks took to Instagram to post an apology, but he later replaced his initial post.

Over coffee, Brooks tried to explain to Silva that he felt talked over frequently and that she was still too obsessed with Jesse Meester. “You were so preoccupied with other things. It was really hard for me to listen to the Jesse thing all the time,” Brooks explained.

However, things soon took a turn for the worse. “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,” Brooks told Silva.

After further unsuccessful conversation, Brooks suggested they maintain a friendship, and Silva politely declined. Brooks, seemingly stung by her reaction, asked Silva, “Did you put weight on?” 

To her credit, Silva held back tears until she was alone in the bathroom. On her way there, she said to producers, “He’s not a nice person. Disgusting.”

Some fans were taken aback by Brooks’ question and quickly started tagging him in posts about it on Instagram. Brooks posted an apology for asking Silva about her weight, but fans felt it was not sincere. 

Brooks’ attempted a clap back in his apology. He shared a clip from his first season on 90 Day Fiancé with Silva, in which she said to producers, “Tom may not be fit as like, a supermodel, like a workout gym-boy, but that’s not what I want.” 

Brooks comments over the recording, “So I’m fat.” Ironically, he does so just as Silva says a supermodel isn’t what she wants. In the caption, Brooks wrote, “What I said was inappropriate and wrong I was hurt. I apologize for weight shaming but what and edit wow … two wrongs don’t make a right. I apologize to her and anyone that is offended.”

The 90 Day Fiancé star faced some backlash in the comments of the original video. In his new post, Brooks wrote, “I’m not perfect. I make mistakes. We all make mistakes, we all have said things that we wish we could take back, unfortunately we can’t. I acknowledge what I did was very inappropriate! I truly am sorry for what I said and take full responsibility for it. The edit is out of context but still if I hadn’t of said it couldn’t have been used.”

Some ‘90 Day Fiancé’ fans have harsh words for Tom Brooks

Despite Brooks deleting his first attempt at an apology, 90 Day Fiancé fans have continued to have words for the reality star. 

One Redditor said of Brooks, “He reposted another apology, but he’s still getting his a** handed to him. I know this apology is insincere because he’s apologizing to the public, not to Darcey!”

Another user added, in part, “He wanted her to be his ‘friend’ so he could get more random screen time with her. I’m actually proud of her for not accepting that and not allowing him to drag her as a ‘friend.’ His face when she declined a ‘friendship’ shocked and disappointed and humiliated him. And then he had to go low and ask about her weight.”

One user pointed out that Brooks himself catfished Silva a little bit, as he did not quite look like the photos he chose to send her. They wrote, “She was being nice because he looked WAY different than his pictures! That is not at all the same thing as him straight up asking her if she’d gained weight.”
