90 Day Fiancé fans know what they like and what they don’t. When they’re crossed, they are quick to threaten a boycott unless they get their way.
It’s no secret fans of 90 Day Fiancé were not all thrilled about the launching of the Discovery+ streaming service. They’ve had a love-hate relationship with the service that has picked up and continued their favorite reality show franchise, adding several new spin-offs to the series. Even though Discovery+ only launched this year, there have already been several times now that fans have called for a boycott of either 90 Day Fiancé or Discovery+.
90 Day Fiancé has eight seasons and sixteen spin-offs. The newest spin-offs introduced on Discovery+ include 90 Day Bares All, 90 Day Journey, 90 Day Fiancé: Love Games, The Other Way Strikes Back, and 90 Day Diaries. Discovery+ is clearly trying to lure 90 Day Fiancé fans to their service, even though they don’t have all the spin-offs, or even the original 90 Day Fiancé series. This was one of the first problems that led fans to boycott.

When Discovery+ launched, it had to contend with the fact that some shows in the 90 Day Fiancé franchise were being aired on the cable network TLC and streaming service Hulu. Being unable to have the whole 90 Day Fiancé franchise on one platform meant viewers would have to pay for both cable and Discovery+ in order to see all their shows. Fans weren’t pleased and many pledged to boycott Discovery+.
The larager 90 Day Fiancé franchise has also sometimes pushed viewers too far, leading to calls to boycott the show. Some cast members drew the ire of fans who wanted TLC to remove them from the show. Boycotts against Geoffrey Paschel were organized until TLC agreed to stop including him in the show and tell-all episodes. Paschel has been repeatedly accused of and arrested on abuse and assault charges. Viewers didn’t feel it was right to offer 15 minutes of fame to someone who was possibly abusing women.
Not all boycotts against the show were successful. Angela Deem is known for her outbursts, which have not endeared her to fans. Fellow 90 Day cast member Avery Mills alleged on social media that Deem attacked Mills’ mother during filming, but the footage was edited out of the show. Some fans called for a boycott of the show, but unlike the boycott against Paschel, Deem continues to appear on the show. In one of the crazier twists of the series, a change.org petition was started to remove Nicole Nafziger, who was physically abusive to her fiancé, Azan Tefou. While TLC didn’t reveal any plans to remove her from the show, she decided to leave on her own, sick of fans speaking out against her.
With a show that focuses on so much drama, it’s bound to rub some people the wrong way and end up causing drama among the fans. Despite the many boycotts, both Discovery+ and 90 Day Fiancé appear to be going on strong. The series will continue being spread among multiple platforms and have cast members of questionable ethics, because who else would be alright with production’s demands. But as long as there are conflict and drama, there will be at least some people who are willing to watch the train wreck.
