After seeing Angela Deem’s explosive temper tantrum in Tell All Part 1, many fans called for her to fire.
She is surly and insecure, and makes it very clear through her words and actions that she has no respect for anyone.
But is Angela also racist?
While some viewers may say “obviously,” many have taken a back seat to certain social media posts of hers.
Angela Deem might be in hot water.
Once upon a time, the way she routinely abused her husband and terrorized her castmates isn’t over.
Angela posted a highlight reel for 2022 on Instagram.
The video, which no longer appears on Angela’s page, contains a series of clips and photos.
We see Angela hanging out at her birthday party.And there is footage from 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? itself.
Last month, she attended a party thrown by Dr. Michael K. Oben, a plastic surgeon she loves to flirt with.
Angela also shared a photo showing both Dr. Oben and another doctor, Lawton Tan.
Dr. Oben is black. Dr. Tan is Asian.
And the post’s caption made sure no one could miss this detail.
It has the text “Once you’re black, you’ll never come back.”
“But when you go, you never do another bro,” the caption quipped.
Unfortunately, this is much worse than a clumsy rhyme with a harsh syllable structure.
I hope I don’t have to explain that it’s unacceptable to refer to Asians by certain primary colors.
(Yes, this was the case when the Spice Girls performed “Spice Up Your Life”…I can’t imagine why anyone would have included that lyric)
Race is a social construct based on arbitrary rules that go back centuries to the emergence of racism. Of course there are contradictions.However, some terms and labels are very Racist.
As previously mentioned, this post no longer appears on Angela’s Instagram. But the internet is apparently forever.
Across social media, people responded to the post with fear rather than surprise.
Viewers have seen Angela verbally and emotionally abuse her husband. They all saw her put her hands on him on film. And now she’s posting pretty blatant racism.
Clearly, fans have long wanted her gone. Often times, just looking at her makes her feel distressed.
However, Angela’s abominable behavior somehow earned her fans.
Perhaps people believe she fakes all this for television.
There may also be political motives behind the support Angela receives.
Angela has expressed enthusiasm for the former fascist reality star turned politician. She was in the minority among reality TV personalities (and among Americans at large) for obvious reasons.
Few people can forget how Angela let Michael parade in the now-disgraceful ex-presidential boxer. That same POTUS happened to add an entry ban to Nigeria the same week as her marriage.
After years of witnessing Angela’s antics, countless viewers hoped this anti-Asian discrimination would be the final nail in the coffin of Angela’s reality TV career. I’m here.
it is, 90 day fiancee Cast members have sacrificed opportunities in the past due to racism.
For example, Lisa Hamm in “Baby Girl” refers to Usman as the N-word. But is it Angela’s fate?
There are two potential obstacles to it.
The first is Angela’s popularity. Did the all-out online scandal in the now-deleted post weigh heavily in comparison to the amount of money her nefarious behavior would bring?
The show is business first. They are likely to fire her only if she truly violates her contract or if her actions cease to be profitable.
Lisa’s racism came in 2020 when the network was willing to cut ties with racists without much pressure.
Unfortunately, the anti-racism movement (that is, the movement from racists who support racism) has been fierce.
That’s where all the weird appropriations of terms like “awoke” and “important race theory” come from. And it protects people like Angela from serious consequences.
A more pressing obstacle to Angela’s dismissal is that Angela’s post is a repost from someone else.
“For reference, read carefully,” Angela demanded of one critic. “Dr. Lawton Honey sparked that craze. She also used the laughing emoji to make fun of her critics.
So she says: Repost Jokes with racist language are not the same as writing them yourself. it’s complicated.
Apparently, Dr. Lawton, like other Asian Americans, is free to call his name.
Just as saying “My hair is a mess today” isn’t an insult like being yelled at from a car, so when you use slurs and other racist language to refer to yourself, the harmful force is is not. (with minor exceptions)
But… reposting someone else’s text post is a tricky topic when it contains this kind of language. It’s not necessarily a gray area, but it’s complicated.
Someone told Angela that she, being a white woman, didn’t necessarily have to repeat jokes she shouldn’t have shared.
But Angela doesn’t like criticism, no matter how reasonable.
“Stay away from the company of miserable love,” she said. Unfortunately, we don’t predict that this will result in Angela’s long-awaited dismissal.
