Mia Hayward appears to have become the subject of extensive criticism after the premiere of 'Hype House.' Is she that annoying?
Mia's relationship with Thomas became a source of concern for some Hype House viewers, many of whom are merely rooting for their favorite content creators to survive and continue collaborating regardless of the at-times icy atmosphere of the Hype House.
Some venture so far as to accuse Mia of single-handedly severing the relationships inside the Hype House.
"Started watching Hype House on Netflix because I'm bored, and damn, Mia is annoying. She sure has a lot of audacity for only being there because she is Thomas’s girlfriend. He needs to wake up and see she is the reason that the Hype House is failing. Drop that b---h and let Vinnie and Chase live," tweeted @strangemmurdock.
Another person said that Mia and Thomas are toxic.
"So, I started watching the Hype House series for the plot — that being Chase and Baron — and I literally never knew who Mia and Thomas were, but they are super annoying and toxic to all the other creators. How are you gonna talk s--t about all your friends on a reality TV show?" tweeted @shivvgal.
Thomas Petrou and Mia Hayward don't seem to be too bothered by the new wave of complaints detailing how annoying they are.
"Mia and I on our way to read the comments, LOL," Thomas captioned an Instagram post shared on Sunday, Jan. 9, 2021, a few days after the premiere of Season 1 of Hype House.
Season 1 of Hype House is available on Netflix now.
