TLC star Shauna Rae has a new man, Dan Swygart. However, he has been catching a lot of heat from fans. So, what is causing such an uproar? Plus, why are they hating on her new beau and not just happy for her? Read on for more details.
Why Did TLC Star Shauna Rae’s New Man Get Beat Up By Fans?
Fans really like I Am Shauna Rae star, Shauna Rae. They only want her to be happy. Unfortunately, the new man in her life has been caught in the crossfire. Fans are not too thrilled with him right now. As viewers may remember, Shauna Rae met Dan Swygart via social media. Their friendship grew from there when he seemingly tried to pursue her. Eventually, Dan came over from the UK to Long Island to visit Shauna Rae which can be seen in the popular TLC reality series.
Her family met Dan but the duo had yet to label what was happening between them despite a few smooches having happened. Now, according to TooFab, Dan has opened up about their situationship but fans are less than thrilled. Why did he feel the need to do this? It seemed as though fans of Shauna Rae’s felt he was using her for the wrong reasons. In fact, if you go to his IG page, he notes that he is on the TLC series in his bio. Dan took to his Instagram and explained what was going on with Shauna Rae.
“Me and Shauna are still just good friends getting to know each other. But I think it’s absolutely disgusting the attitude of some people. She’s been through so much in life. She survived cancer as a child, she’s always felt different and been treated different by society. But how dare you take away her right, her human right, to have a connection, a friendship, a relationship with someone else?” he started. Yet, it was his next choice of words that got fans riled up again.
You Shouldn’t Have Said That
Though his initial sentiment was sweet, Dan continued on about the TLC star and that went very badly. He added: “I cannot believe some people who deny her the right to have a friendship or connection with someone else. She is a human being, she is a cancer survivor, she’s got disability, she had dwarfism. Who are you to take away her right to have a friendship and connection with someone? How dare you? How dare you?”
One follower took exception to him saying Shauna Rae had a disability. They felt that this was where Dan had gone completely wrong. In other posts, fans have said that they don’t trust him. It seems that only time will tell if he is here for the right reasons or just for screen time. Ultimately, like any young woman, Shauna Rae has to learn her own lessons with whoever she dates.
