Mike Berk of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days has been the subject of intense criticism throughout season 5, but whether he deserved it or not, the star of the 90 Day Fiancé franchise feels he has reached his “breaking point.”
Although he used to participate in some of the lighthearted memes that have been made about him, Mike Berk’s controversial words and actions during his breakup with ex-girlfriend Ximena Morales have sparked a new wave of disapproval. He seems to be having trouble dealing with the backlash, and he’s been talking about it on Instagram.
At the beginning of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days season 5, fans enjoyed making jokes about Mike Berk because he was clumsy and clueless but seemed ultimately harmless. However, as the season progressed, viewers began to see a darker side of Mike.
In recent episodes, Ximena Morales has made it clear to Mike Berk that she is no longer in love with him and has no interest in continuing their relationship. Despite being told several times that he is unwanted, Mike became angry and refused to leave Ximena Morales’s apartment because he paid his rent.
Mike became nasty to Ximena Morales and condemned her previous job as a cam girl, despite the fact that he met her as one of his paying clients. Fans were understandably disgusted with Mike’s behavior and have been criticizing him mercilessly ever since.
90 Day Fiancé’s Mike Berk Reveals He’s Struggling With His Mental Health
Viewers might enjoy their roast Mike, but the reality star definitely doesn’t. On Instagram, he said the constant criticism is taking a toll on his mental health.
The fan response to Mike has gone from mild roasting to fierce condemnation, and it seems like the whiplash from becoming the villain of Before the 90 Days season 5 is taking a toll on Mike. Every aspect of his behavior on and off the show has been scrutinized by viewers and the media, which can be very hard to take.
Nothing in Mike’s previous life could have prepared him to be the target of judgment and anger from 90 Day Fiancé fandom. It’s understandable that Mike would have trouble coping, and he’s not the first star of the franchise to deal with hostile fans.
However, there are many viewers who might argue that the criticism Mike has received is completely deserved. While Mike may feel used by Ximena Morales, that doesn’t excuse his unreasonable behavior and comments.
Fans feel that Mike has been disrespectful and intimidating by refusing to leave Ximena Morales’s apartment, and has been called out for hypocritically judging Ximena’s past work. Mike has also received a lot of criticism for his extremely offensive behavior on social media, for which he has yet to apologize. Mike is feeling the sting of sharp fan jokes and heated discussions, but most of them have been provoked by his own problematic actions.
