Mike and Natalie’s relationship on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? has been a trainwreck, to say the least. Fans now have another reason to dislike Mike Youngquist after noticing a confederate flag in his home décor.
The TLC hit series first introduced Mike and Natalie in Season 7 of 90 Day Fiance, and they did not appear to have much in common.
Natalie is a vegetarian and Christian, while Mike is an unapologetic meat-eater that believes in aliens.
The Ukrainian reality TV star was also unimpressed by Mike’s lack of fitness.
Furthermore, their relationship continued to deteriorate due to a lack of chemistry, and the season culminated with Natalie giving Mike his engagement ring back.
Their drama followed them onto Season 8 of 90 Day Fiance when Natalie moved to America and expected to get her ring back but struggled to adapt to Mike’s smalltown home in Sequim, Washington.
Mike called off the wedding shortly before Natalie’s visa expired, but the couple married before the K-1 visa process ended.
The couple has managed to drag on their toxic relationship to Season 6 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?, and viewers have had enough.
Editing slip reveals Mike Youngquist confederate flag
A 90 Day Fiance viewer on Reddit spotted the controversial confederate flag in the background of Mike’s home as he sat with Natalie, who is cuddling a pet rat.
Redditors were quick to express their disdain for the couple, with the most popular comment concluding, “The rat has the most class in this picture, honestly.”
90 Day Fiance viewers have been debating who is to blame for their failed relationship as Mike and Natalie struggle to get along in the current season of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?
“Forgot to blur out the Confederate flag,” the post reads. The photo led many 90 Day Fiance Redditors to debate why the reality TV star, a Washington resident, would decorate his house with a flag representing the Confederate South.
Most viewers concluded that they were ‘not surprised’ by the revelation, while many added it to their list of reasons to dislike the 90 Day Fiance star.
“Just when I thought I couldn’t hate him even more,” another Redditor added.
“The amount of people who live in states that weren’t confederate but still worship/have it flying somewhere is minimum 50%. Because it’s not about the history lol,” one post reads.
“Yep. Sequim is pretty isolated and full of racists!” Another Redditor added in response.
90 Day Fiance has previously made efforts to blur out the flag while filming in Mike’s home.
90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? airs Sundays at 8/7c on TLC.
