Now, fans are taking a walk down memory lane and recalling a glaringly obvious hypocrisy.

Fans draw attention to Amber & Trent Johnston’s hypocrisy.

One fan recalled, “That time Amber and Trent gave the lilliputian in Coney Island shit for being ‘exploited’ yet they have 15 seasons of a tv show because they are little people.” The Reddit user was baffled by this, pointing out just how obvious it is that this is a double standard.

Another sarcastically added, “A family of little people in inflatable turkey suits wrestling in a pool of jello on tv = non-exploitative and good. Coney Island dude = bad. Duh.” 

According to Wikipedia, the Lilliputian Village was “designed as an imitation of a 15th-century German village. It was populated by three hundred little people, who had their own livery tent, stable, laundry, and fire department.” Amber and Trent Johnston took issue with this and called it exploitation. But fans are now arguing that the couple has exploited themselves and their kids on TLC.

Below, you can watch a clip from the episode, though it doesn’t show the scene fans are discussing.

The episode in question is Season 6 Episode 3, which aired in 2019.
