"I am not defending all of the choices Beck made along the way...," she continues, "but please remember that she is a human being... complex, flawed, jaded, and sentient like all of us. Beck has had to endure a level of cyber-bullying and cruelty from the public that I cannot even comprehend. Too many MAFS participants over the years have had to endure the same vile and often violent online abuse that I’m seeing Beck receive. The lasting impact this cruelty can have on them is utterly fucked. If you’re trying to make a point about morality and core values by posting cruel shit, take a moment to reflect on where your own morals and core values lie.
"What fulfillment do you get from sending messages of hate or posting the most vile, damning shit you can possibly think of about them online? Hold yourselves to the same moral standards that you deem acceptable for those you see on TV. If you believe you are a good person... be a good person. If you consider yourself to be a smart person... BE smart by knowing what you know but more importantly knowing what you DON'T know.
"Remember that no matter how well you think you’ve got a read on a person by watching them on TV, at the end of the day you don’t know them... especially not well enough to justify abusing them, degrading them, and actively subjecting them to horrific online commentary and abuse. I know Beck. I know her better than anyone who’s based their opinion of her purely off this show. I know Beck. I know her better than anyone who’s based their opinion of her purely off this show Thank you for coming to my Ted talk xo."
The revelation followed Beck's assertion that Jake was to blame for the lack of intimacy in their relationship, telling a Hobart radio station last month that she'd tried to seduce her husband, but he wasn't interested.
“I would walk around naked and invite him to the shower. And he would reject me, and go for a walk or have to take a random phone call,” she said.
Beck is yet to comment on the backlash, but her most recent Instagram shared a very pointed message to viewers.
"Wishing everyone nothing but the best, in their search for love," she wrote.
