Catfish pissed me off (Catfish MTV Show) - September 30th 2013, 08:44 AM

The episode with the white guy Tyler I think his name was, and the black gay guy named Aaron who was posing as a girl Amanda really made me upset.

Why is everyone mad at Aaron? He's black and gay. Two personalities in the dating world which are hard to overcome. Tyler should have known better. Someone who is refusing to call and video chat with you. He should have known something wasn't adding up.

I know that a lot of this crap is fake but still it just confuses me.

Then he didn't even want to remain friends with him.

It is stupid, if you go on the show you're doing it because part of you is questioning whether or not the other person is actually who they say there are and to get as pissed off as they do at them is ridiculous cause they had to have seen it coming. I think I've seen the episode you're talking about but I can't really remember it but it does annoy me how some of them react towards the other person, especially when they are genuinely sorry for what they've done and realise that they've done wrong, especially if it's for a reason like they couldn't face being themselves/bullying etc.

I have seen one though when the person who was pretending to be someone else just didn't care about what he did or how the girl felt, he just did it to improve his game with girls and wasn't bothered about how much of an arsehole he looked because of it which I felt was completely out of order and I was with the girl & Nev 100% with how pissed off they were.

I can see your point but he still lied and let someone build trust in a person who didn't exist.
I'm not saying it's all Aaron's fault, but he is to blame as well. They were both really stupid.

Erm, because he catfished someone? Why should it matter who he is or how stupid the other guy was? He took advantage of and lied to him, and his ethnicity and sexual orientation hardly give him the right to do that, do they?

I have to agree. Aaron should definitely be held accountable of his actions regardless of his race and sexuality. Yes, Tyler should have been suspicious about the whole ordeal, but that doesn't mean that he should be the only one at blame here. I can understand why he didn't want to be friends with Aaron because he had been lied to and thought he was talking to a girl whom he loved. That's definitely a reality check to find out it was a completely different person and he was probably too hurt to attempt a friendship with Aaron.
So I do think both people were at fault here and I do think the outcome was understandable.


And here you are living, despite it all.
