Wayne claimed that Holly “wakes up every day crying” because of the nasty comments people have made about them, including that they are “drug addicts” and “meth heads.” The pair also faced backlash following the July 31 episode when Wayne criticized the way Holly dressed. Some viewers accused Wayne of being “abusive,” while others criticized Holly for tolerating his comments.

In the Instagram video, Wayne went on to slam TLC for editing their scenes to paint the cast members in a negative light.

“[It’s] what the show does. They make you look like lunatics. That’s why they want you here because they just care about their pockets. It’s all they want,” he continued. “So you know what, guys, if you want to, judge us. If it makes you feel better or it makes you feel like you’ve done a good deed, then judge people, talk bad about people so you can feel better.”
