Drew Barrymore Faces Backlash for Hosting '90 Day Fiance' Star Angela Deem, Deletes Interview

Drew Barrymore's recent decision to feature Angela Deem from '90 Day Fiance' on her daytime talk show has sparked considerable criticism, leading to swift action by CBS to remove all interview clips.

AceShowbiz - Drew Barrymore came under fire after inviting Angela Deem, a notorious figure from the "90 Day Fiance" franchise, onto "The Drew Barrymore Show". The episode, which aired on June 17, 2024, was meant to highlight Ross Mathews' love for reality TV. Instead, it resulted in a social media uproar and a quick removal of interview clips by CBS.

Ross Mathews, who co-hosted the episode with Barrymore, enthusiastically introduced Angela, praising her for bringing "drama, heart, mayhem, mischief, and the memaw" to the show. "There's one cast member who I'm so obsessed with," Mathews said before offering a glimpse of Angela's tumultuous relationship with her husband, Michael Ilesanmi.

However, the reception from "90 Day Fiance" viewers was less than welcoming. Fans immediately took to social media to criticize Angela's appearance, with one user commenting, "Pretty disappointed that @drewbarrymore would give this abuser a platform to spew her hate!!" Another wrote, "Majorly disappointed in The Drew Barrymore Show for having Angela Deem on their show."

Angela Deem has long been a controversial figure in the "90 Day Fiance" universe. Known for her explosive behavior and accusations of both verbal and physical abuse towards her husband, Michael, her appearance on Barrymore's show seemed to many as an ill-advised choice.

One particularly powerful criticism read, "Wow - have you seen the show? Did anyone do their homework before inviting this abusive person on your show? For someone who promotes kindness and good news, this was a big strikeout."

The backlash was not limited to comments; it led to CBS removing all related content from their digital platforms, including YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook. This action was likely taken to distance the network from the negative publicity Angela almost inevitably brings with her.

Drew Barrymore, who admitted to not being familiar with "90 Day Fiance", may not have fully understood the gravity of Angela's controversial reputation. Despite Angela's claims on the show that she is still with Michael, her behavior and their ongoing visa struggles have kept the drama high and fan tolerance low.

Angela Deem's saga with her husband Michael has been fraught with allegations and turmoil, culminating in Michael's disappearance earlier this year. He was later found, reportedly in fear for his life. Such events have only solidified Angela's image as a volatile figure, complicating any attempts to present her in a positive light.

Ultimately, the decision to feature Angela Deem on "The Drew Barrymore Show" has proven to be a notable misstep. While the backlash was swift and severe, it serves as a reminder of the importance of thoroughly vetting guests, especially those with highly controversial public personas.
