'Love Island' is notorious for rocky relationships and the drama that comes along with it. The ongoing Season 2 of 'Love Island' is no different as through the course of the season we saw several islanders coupling up and later ditching their partner to recouple with someone else. Amid all this drama, Justine Ndiba and Caleb Corprew managed to stay loyal to each other, despite many temptations and challenges that were thrown their way.

This couple's budding relationship became an instant hit among fans, thanks to how mature they behave around each other and the drama-free love between them. While fans can't get enough of watching Caleb and Justine and their beautiful relationship on the show, unfortunately, very little of them is shown on recent episodes. The focus has been on Cely Vazquez and Johnny Middlebrooks' relationship which is brimming with drama and toxicity. 

The recently aired episode featured a brief clip of Justine and Celeb quickly discussing the communication issue in their relationship. It was a blink and miss scene. This left fans wondering why the network isn't airing Caleb and Justine's romance as much as Cely and Johnny's. A fan tweeted, "Do the producers have a problem with jaleb? First no hideaway then barely any screen time... I’m confused #LoveIsland #LoveIslandUSA."

Another fan wondered, "Why does it feel like this show doesn’t want to show Justine and Caleb a lot? #LoveIslandUSA #LoveIsland." "Jaleb is obviously the superior couple. there’s no reason these producers should be robbing them of their screen time. #JustineHive #JustineandCaleb #LoveIslandUSA #LoveIsland," wrote a fan.



 

 



 

 



 

Several fans began accusing the show of being "racist" for not showing much of Justine and Caleb's relationship on the show. A fan expressed, "@LoveIslandUS @cbs I feel like racist ways are starting show when it comes to jaleb #LoveIslandUSA." Another fan shared, "So crazy how they stopped showing Jaleb, so that people would get disconnected from their journey and stop believing in their connection. @loveislandusa Yall are racists and you aint slick. #LoveIslandUSA."

"The way they’re pushing a toxic relationship to the public instead of a healthy and mature relationship why do they hate to see a Black couple win #LoveIslandUSA," pointed out a fan. "It’s funny cause giving jaleb more screentime and them being the first Black couple to win love island in the entire franchise would be HUGE for cbs & love island usa. the racism so deep they letting it fumble their bag #LoveIslandUSA," observed a fan.
