The newly minted reality star has had enough of fans who have body shamed him for his height and other physical characteristics. So, Big Ed addresses his haters. Sadly this isn’t the first time he’s had to deal with such cruelty.
90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days: Big Ed Brown Receives Cruel Online Comments
90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days star Ed Brown recently opened up in an interview that many so-called fans of his hit TLC reality show have been less than kind to him about his appearance. So, he took the time to clear up some of his body issues. Ed has Klippel-Feil syndrome, a rare congenital condition that involves the fusion of any two of the seven bones in the neck. So that explains why his head and neck look the way they do. It’s a medical condition. To make an issue of it is just downright mean and ignorant. Yet the memes, posts, and comments on social media have been brutal. Thankfully Ed is able to take it in stride.

Additionally, Ed also has a bigger than normal chest cavity. Sadly that was something he was made fun of all his life as well. In fact, in high school, Ed was teased for years after getting his neck stuck in one of the work out machines. The not so funny running joke stayed with him way longer than his school years. So when the new season debuted he was warned not to read the comments online. But of course, Ed didn’t take that advice.
Not All Fans Were Cruel
