MAFS UK fans slam Kwame for 'body-shaming' comments to wife after bizarre bench date

Married at First Sight UK fans were left furious on Wednesday afternoon as groom Kwame was quizzed by his wife Kasia’s sisters.

The pair met with Kasia’s siblings as part of the homestay week stage of the E4 reality show, who proceeded to grill the 42-year-old.

They asked whether their sister Kasia was his typical type of woman, to which he admitted he typically dated ladies who were ‘more petite’ – a comment which left fans reeling.

Kwame then went on to compare the women he tends to date to the likes of music sensations Rihanna and Beyonce, which again left fans baffled.

He added: If you ask me if I find Kasia attractive - absolutely. I've definitely made it known I find her attractive. I think I do that daily. I don't think she can walk past me without me making it known."

Taking to Twitter after the scenes aired, many said Kwame clearly lived in a ‘dream world’, while others slammed what they saw as comments body shaming curvy Kasia.

One wrote: “Kwame just basically called kasia fat,” alongside a series of crying emojis as another said: “Why on earth would Rihanna or Beyonce look twice at Kwame. Hell why on earth would the amazing Kasia look twice at him - he is such a fake?!”

“Does kwami know that Rihanna isn't petite? She is a whole sexy curvy real woman! This man needs binned,” another wrote.

One added: “And there you have it...Kwame usually goes for someone more petite,” as another penned: “Wait….. WHAT! I go for more petite women like Rihanna and Beyonce …. Imma hide behind the sofa.”

“THE NERVE to compare her to women like that,” one enraged fan wrote as another tweeted: “Oh dear lord “more petite” that’s a POOR choice of words.”

“Let’s face it Kwame, you ain’t getting no Beyonce & you ain’t getting no Rihanna… fam you’re even punching with Kasia… allow it please hun,” another wrote.

This comes after viewers of the matchmaking series were baffled during last week's episode when upon arrival to his hometown in east London, Kwame took Kasia around the local park and walked down the high street instead of showing her his house like the other couples.

Sitting on a park bench, Kasia told her husband: “It would have been better for me personally if I could have been in touch with your environment because we're coming towards the end of this process now aren't we.

“So why can't we go to your house?” Kasia asks, and Kwame said: “Well, I'm quite private and I'm quite secretive. It's just something I'm not comfortable doing on the process.”

Kasia said: “I understand that, but we did get married at first sight so we knew what we was coming into. That's a mental challenge for me in this.

“I'm putting myself on the table, you know, like why can't we go there?

“Obviously we had a beautiful wedding - not even your sister was there. You met my granddad, you met my mum, you met my people.

“So if you didn't meet all those people you probably wouldn't feel like you know me as much as you do today.”
