We reported that some complaints arose about the show. These circled around suggestions that the show filmed beyond the coronavirus quarantine dates.

Of course, another aspect revolves around the lawsuits brought against Megalomedia who film the show for TLC. Now, in the teaser for My 600 LB Life Samantha, people simply feel that once again, TLC exploits desperately sad people.

And, plenty of them who watched the clip expressed their anger and unhappiness.

One My 600 LB Life critic said of Samantha, “This is sad and gross. This poor woman clearly needs help. Typical TLC making money off the unhappiness, craziness, and misfortune of people 😢😢😢😢😢.”

This fan felt sorry for Samantha: “It’s not modeling, it’s exploiting yourself. It’s sad because you know there’s a deeply rooted issue that makes people turn to addiction. My heart really goes out to those suffering.”

This comment echoed a few others: “This is the saddest episode from the series! To have your addiction used as a kink…. oh lord!”

Samantha clearly needs more help than a TV show, fans think

One fan of My 600 LB Life suspected Samantha knows she’s killing herself. They wrote, “I’m sorry but why is she eating a whole cake? My heart truly goes out to this woman, but surely she knows that is incredibly unhealthy! She is killing herself! So, so sad.”
