Viewers Are Calling Out Love Island’s Eden For Bullying & Slut-Shaming

After six weeks of petty drama on Love Island, one islander has finally come undone. This week it looks like we are seeing Eden’s true colours and they aren’t pretty.

In last night’s episode, the islanders found themselves at a stalemate over who to sent home between Millie and Mark, and Mac and Teddy.

Loyal viewers noticed that Eden and Erin chose to vote for Mac and Teddy to stay even though they are just friends did seem to be both hypocritical and strategic.

We can’t forget how Eden and Erin wanted to send Justin and Millie home early on in the series, based on their match being based merely on friendship. Millie and Mark at the very least occasionally kiss on the mouth.

As the second vote lingered closer, Eden warned Erin, Dom and Shelby “No one fucking dare backtrack!”, which seemed all kinds of threatening.

The voting deliberation was tense. As Eden and Erin took on Grant and Tayla over who would be sent home, Eden snapped “Don’t look at my Mrs like that ‘cos I won’t fucking tolerate it,” at Grant.

This is far from the first time Eden has spoken to another islander in a threatening tone. We watched on as he victimised Teddy, leaving the poor guy in tears time and time again.

Then after Teddy chose Millie at a recoupling ceremony, for some illogical reason Eden changed his aim to Jaxon. We can only assume this was to protect Dom’s ego, as he was previously coupled up with Millie.

In a fit of anger, Eden attempted to humiliate Jaxon in front of his match Shelby. This in turn ended their relationship.

This is school yard behaviour we can all recognise. Eden has long seen himself as the alpha dog of the villa, a breed of toxic masculinity that seeks to subjugate those around him that are deemed unworthy.

While Eden acting like a bully is nothing particularly revelatory, the kind of slut-shaming language he used in last night’s ep was truly revolting.

When Millie rightfully called out Eden and Erin for playing the game, Eden snapped back:

“Is this coming from someone that has had five different guys?”

We can only guess Eden is referring to Millie coupling up with several islanders. But his words are super confusing. Has he seen this show? His put-downs come as if the series wasn’t literally based on dating multiple islanders until you find the right person.

It’s important to note that while Eden was trying to tear down Millie, his mate Josh has partnered up with almost every girl in the villa.

It is time for Eden to be called out for his bullying behaviour and viewers ain’t holding back.

Following Eden’s actions, some fans are campaigning for anyone but Eden and Erin to win.

Here at Punkee we don’t want to be too biased or anything. However…. JOSHIE BBY FOR THE WIN.
