And the least we can say is that this idyll shocked a large number of people, including viewers of the American show “ I Am Shauna Rae in which Shauna rose to prominence.

In a video posted on social networks, Dan Swygart responds to critics who accuse him of being “a bad guy”.

A disturbing couple

Indeed, the young man indicated that he was dating Shauna for his “ personality and not for childish appearance '. Note that the starlet of the television show, broadcast on the TLC channel, measures just under one meter and weighs around 22 kilograms.

As The Daily Mirror points out, her stunted growth is a side effect of brain cancer treatment she received as a child. Today, his physical appearance is a real obstacle to dating. Worse still, her mother and stepfather have already expressed concern that her very young appearance will attract pedophiles. Meanwhile, the one who documents her life on television seems to have found love in Dan's arms.

Also according to the British media, the two lovebirds met in season 2 of the show. A sequence that did not go unnoticed and which angered Internet users.

« Yes, she's 23, but she looks and talks like an eight-year-old. She also doesn't act like a mature woman. She looks like a little girl “wrote a user.

Faced with this situation, the principal concerned took over his Instagram account to defend his couple :

« It is very important to remember that Shauna is an amazing 23 year old woman with a disability. In developing a connection with her, it is important to recognize her disability and move past it and build it on who she is as an individual. ', did he declare.

Before adding: I think some people aren't emotionally mature enough to understand that you can have a deep connection based on personality rather than physicality. ».
