Things go even worse for Wess when he came out as gay to his father. His father felt as if being gay was truly unacceptable and pushed Wess further away from him.

Fans React to Wess’ Father

Twitter was on fire with comments about Wess and his father on My 600-Lb. Life. One fan wrote, “That conversation didn’t sit right with me. Wess’ dad was like ‘Sorry that happened to you. Oh well, whatever.'” Another added, “Sucks Wess had to have this conversation with his dad at 36 because he didn’t want to hear it when Wess was younger.” One more added, “Do y’all think that Rick brought all that food as his emotional crutch as well since there was going to be an uncomfortable conversation?”
