'Love Island': Fans irked by James's 'angry and possessive' behavior, advise Moira to leave him
James's tone and choice of words came across as rather vindictive and fans didn't appreciate it
Season 2 of 'Love Island' may have just begun, but the contestants are serving us more than enough drama. During the first coupling event, single Moira Tumas and James McCool instantly took to each other. The two love-birds couldn't get enough of each other. By Day 3, they were already beginning to get intimate and things were heating up for the couple pretty fast.
Fans too loved the couple's chemistry and began rooting for the couple. Just as things were going smoothly for the couple, Moira began feeling a bit anxious at the pace of their relationship and expressed her concerns to James. She suggested that they take it a bit slow, while explicitly stating that she wants to hold off on getting intimate for a little while until she got to know him better.
Although James tried his best to seem okay with Moira's requests, he was bummed out at the fact that sex was off the table for them. He repeatedly kept trying to explain to her how sex was very important for him in a relationship, which made Moira feel pressured a lot more. Thankfully for Moira, she got picked to go on a date with a new guy named Calvin.
Although she initially went with the thought of not pursuing anything with Calvin, and staying loyal to James, she found herself feeling attracted to Calvin. She even expressed how she was ready to keep an eye out for Calvin and test the waters with him. Although James had no idea about Moira's feelings towards Calvin, he began getting very angry and possessive at the thought of her going on a date with someone else. In a conversation with a fellow contestant, James even revealed that if Moira began flirting with the new guy or showing interest in him, then he would change his entire strategy. James's tone and choice of words came across as rather vindictive and fans didn't appreciate it.
A fan tweeted, "I really started to like james but... that whole angry possessiveness thing is NOT IT... #loveisland #loveislandusa."
Another fan wrote, "Sheesh James and Carrington are getting all possessive over girls they met not even a week ago. Red flags much? #LoveIslandUSA."
