Whitney Way Thore always found critics who slammed her in My Big Fat Fabulous Life. However, it seems to get worse, and some people claim the show’s now become unwatchable. What upsets TLC fans so much? Read on to find out.
Fans Threatened To Boycott MBFFL & Whitney Way Thore
In Season 10 of My Big Fat Fabulous Life, TLC fans felt angry because Glenn Thore allowed his wife to be on the show. Actually, she really seemed deathly ill after her second stroke. So, a lot of people felt that letting her film was insensitive and exploited the older woman. Hunter and his sister obviously bought into the idea, so they also got slammed.
Whitney Way Thore got critics threatening to boycott MBFFL before Season 11 even premiered. When the trailer dropped, many people were shocked because it revealed the funeral of Babs. In the past, TLC viewers rarely slammed Glenn, but his daughter shifted the blame onto her dad, who supposedly okayed the funeral for TLC. So, criticism only intensified.
Oh no….Babs Thore died….very sad for Whitney and Hunter. Their mom Babs was a spitfire 💔🕯️

Whitney Way Thore Makes The TLC Show Unwatchable?
As the new season progresses, people find much more to moan about. For instance, they think that Glenn’s daughter treats him like a mindless infant. For many people, shoving her dad aside at Jessica’s photoshoot was just one example of what viewers see as rude and crude. This weekend, My Big Fat Fabulous Life viewers talked on Reddit about the show becoming unwatchable.
One non-fan of Whitney Way Thore, u/Bumblebee637 opined, “Listen, I am not above trash tv. I can’t look away from a car crash. But it’s taken me weeks to get through 2 episodes of the most recent season.” They also complained, “All of Whitney’s narcissism and cringey-ness, (sic) was fun escapism in the old days.” However, they added, “…when it revolves around Babs’ death and trying to control her grieving father and exploit his other family, I just truly can barely get through ten minutes at a time. Anyone else?”
MBFFL Viewers Join The Comments
Whitney Way Thore seemingly racked up a lot of critics this season. One of them said in the replies, “I got about halfway through the first episode before I had to turn it off mid-funeral, and I attempted to watch ep 2 last night, only successful through the clothing-shopping scene… I’m going to attempt ep 3 soon, but I fear I’m done even hate-watching.”
Another unhappy My Big Fat Fabulous Life viewer opined, “It’s bad. As someone who lost my mom when I was 30, I do feel sad for anyone that loses a parent but she acts like she knows everything about grief and she doesn’t. She’s a clown. She treats Glenn like he doesn’t know how to live without her.”
Do you think that MBFFL is becoming unwatchable in Season 11? Do you think that critics are being too judgemental? And, do you agree that Glenn Thore’s daughter seems to have reacted to her mom’s death by being insufferable? Let us know in the comments below and watch My Big Fat Fabulous Life on Tuesdays on TLC.
