Oisin inappropriately touched Emmy Sharett causing tensions.

From the beginning of Season 2, it's clear that Oisin is a major flirt and is actively trying to stir up trouble at work. One of his first offenses involves inappropriately touching co-star Emmy Sharrett off-camera, who has been dating fellow co-star Will Kulp since Season 1. In fact, Emmy confronts him in Episode 3, claiming that he slapped her butt after work.

Oisin responded to Emmy's accusation, saying "Look, I’m sorry if I did do that, which I don’t deny that I did because I have this friendly personality. You know me. I’m larger than life,” he said.

Understandably, Will was not pleased by Oisin's statement and the two men began cursing each other out until Oisin walked out.

But while Oisin thinks he's pretty slick, fans do not appear to be responding well to him. "Everything about Oisin is gross he’s awful to women and thinks he’s way hotter than he actually is, so cringey," wrote one user on X.
