First of all, let’s be clear that fans have multiple ways to follow the OutDaughtered family on social media. Adam Busby and Danielle Busby each have accounts. They have It’s a Buzz World account and one for their boutique plus TLC also has an official account for the show.
TLC Tried To Promote Doubling Down With The Derrico’s
The official Instagram account for OutDaughtered is managed by TLC, not the family. This week that account promoted a new episode of another TLC show about multiples, Doubling Down with the Derricos, and included a clip from the show. Naturally, TLC urged viewers to check out this new show.
But, OutDaughtered fans were not pleased with the network using the OutDaughtered account to promote the other show. They were so steamed that they ripped into the network big time.
Outdaughtered Fans Not Feeling The Derrico’s?
OutDaughtered fans reminded TLC they follow the profile for the Busby family and no one else. In other words, they do not follow the OutDaughtered profile for updates on the Derricos. It’s not that they dislike the Derricos, but fans made it clear that if they want to follow that fam they will.
The comments spoke to this general opinion, with one fan writing, “No offense to this family. They look lovely. But this is the outdaughtered account might be a mistake or mis post. Don’t be hateful in the comments yall.”
A lot of fans echoed this sentiment and encouraged OutDaughtered fans to play nice with the Derrico’s, but made it clear that they do not want to see that family on another family’s account.
Was TLC Taking Advantage Of The Busby Account?
One of the more tame comments read, “We just want the busby family, don’t share another family to us!” The fans’ point of view is crystal clear, but the channel clearly has another agenda. They want to capitalize on all of the eyeballs for OutDaughtered being converted to Derrico fans. But is the strategy backfiring?
TLC has used the profile to promote Doubling Down with the Derricos in the past, and fans have pretty much said the same thing in the past.
