Fans think Ella “fetishes Asian culture”
Viewers have previously expressed contempt for Before the 90 days The star of season 5 Ella and her statements in the teaser. One Redditor wrote: âTwo thoughts: ‘I love Asian culture’ as if Asian culture is a monolith. Also, I hate it all. But also I love it. What kind of a monster am I.
Another user echoed a similar sentiment: âI’m great at Asian culture, oh yeah, Asia, the place with one culture and exactly one type of people, Asia. “
However, Ella isn’t the only actor accused of fetishizing another race or culture. Fans have already spoken and feel TLC may perpetuate the issue.
In another thread, a Redditor commented, âI think the fetishism / infatuation is especially evident with Nicole and Azan and Danielle and Mohamed. To a lesser extent maybe Melanie and Devar. But part of me is asks if they play it for the show at the behest of the producers. It seems like it’s kind of a ‘trendy’ thing to hang out with other races as well, not that I think there is anything wrong with race relations, just sometimes I feel like some people date other races to make themselves look better.
