TLC Star Says 90 Day Fiance Trail Was Very Misleading
In the same post on IG, Rebecca Parrott said that the recent 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days preview was very misleading. She said that it made Zied Hakimi look like he was abusing her. In the clip, Zied placed his hand on Rebecca’s neck. Some fans think it looks as if he’s putting her in a chokehold and Rebecca is struggling to get free.
However, Rebecca said Zied wasn’t hurting her. Rebecca explained that if you see the entire uncut scene, then it’s clear that Zied was simply apologizing and she was actually the one that was angry and pulled away. This wouldn’t be the first time that TLC aired a dramatic preview for 90 Day Fiance that later turned out to be a nothing-burger.
This is not the first time Rebecca Parrott feels dismayed over the show’s portrayal of Zied Hakimi. Previously, she defended her much younger boyfriend from haters criticizing him. Zied received backlash over a remark about his age gap with Rebecca, referring to her as a grandmother. She says that Zied’s comment was taken out of context. She added that their age difference was never an issue between them.

I need to make something VERY CLEAR. Zied has NEVER been abusive. Zied would NEVER be abusive. This is dangerous to make light of and it needs to stop now. I understand that the preview was misleading. However the scene in its full entirety was very clear! Zied was apologizing to me and I was the one who pulled away from him. I was angry, not Zied. As an abuse survivor in previous relationships, I would never allow this, and would never make excuses for it. In addition, TLC and Sharp Entertainment would not only not have allowed it, but would not have aired it. It is dangerous to make accusations like this, and make it look like I’m making excuses. As there are women watching in actually dangerous relationships that think if I’m staying with this man, it’s okay for them to. It is never okay to be in any relationship that is even slightly abusive. Reality tv likes to create drama, and did that with the preview. The scene in its entirety, clearly shows Zied was not being abusive in ANY way. Be responsible with your accusations. #domesticabuseisnotokay . . . . . #90dayfiance #beforethe90days #90dayfiancememes #realitytv #TLC #beforethe90daysfiance #90dayfiancebeforethe90days #rebeccaandzied #90df #pillowtalk #pillowtalkbeforethe90days
