Bringing Up Bates star Carlin Bates is taking the heat over her new video, and fans are accusing her of faking it for cash. What did she do in her latest video that sparked this discussion? Keep reading for all of the details.
In the past, Carlin and her sisters and sisters-in-law have been called out for “faking it.” Fans think that they aren’t always honest on social media and in their YouTube videos.
For example, the Bringing Up Bates stars often share links to clothing, shoes, makeup, and other products. They typically make a commission on the sales made through their links. But fans think they might not be truthful about the links their followers request. So, the girls have been accused of faking those messages just to make some cash. TV Shows Ace previously reported this.
Now, Carlin Bates is taking the heat for her latest YouTube video.
Carlin Bates documents a raw, vulnerable moment.
In their latest YouTube video, Carlin and her husband, Evan Stewart, went to Las Vegas for a work trip. Several other family members went along, too. Carlin and Whitney run the Bates Sisters’ Boutique, so they were at an event selecting clothing to carry at the shop.
At the beginning of the YouTube video, Carlin and Evan say goodbye to their kids, Layla, 2 years, and Zade, 4 months. Evan’s parents watched them for a few days.
As Carlin Bates left her kids, she felt very emotional. The video includes several clips of her crying in the car and in the airport.
Bringing Up Bates fans think it was all for views & money.
On Reddit, Carlin Bates’ followers are discussing the video and saying that it’s odd that she wanted to record this moment. Fans don’t doubt she was sad to leave her kids, but they do think there’s a chance she played up the tears for more views.
One fan points out that it seems “terribly insensitive” of Evan to film his wife crying like this. However, others think it was planned.
One Bringing Up Bates fan writes, “I think they’d do anything for clicks and money. Most of the Bates kids and in their spouses are attention seeking. Evan used it as the thumbnail anyway so they couldn’t have been that upset about Carlin being filmed.”
Another one argues, “Carlin definitely wanted it filmed for content.”
One more of Carlin Bates’ followers is convinced it’s just for “views and money” and added, “They just want the money.”
So, do you think Carlin Bates was faking the tears for more views and money? Or do you think she simply wanted to show her real emotions and be relatable?
