Barbara Corcoran is one of the strictest judges and one of the most dangerous sharks on the show to hook. She is a toughie and is infamous for being too critical and speculative about every pitch that comes by. And for the last few weeks, her opinions and feedback on new products and their pitches have not been appreciated by the fans of the show. Last week, she got slammed by fans for calling out her colleague and co-shark, Lori, and body-shaming her. And this week, it was her against an entrepreneur and fans are once again disappointed in her.

In episode 11 of ‘Shark Tank’ Season 11, young graduate Melissa Bartow brought an interesting idea to the table. She has created flavored date spreads that packs the goodness of dates, which itself is a super fruit and is lower in calorie count than most nut butters available in the market. Her product is innovative and not yet common, and fits into the healthy-eating trend that’s overtaken the market today.

Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, and even Daymond John liked the product as they sampled the product. Both Daymond and Mark, however, were concerned about the calories, since they are sweeter than most spreads. But the worst reaction came from Barbara who turned out to be offensive to the young entrepreneur. To this, fans reacted strongly. One Twitter user says, “@habsrulez What Barbara just said is completely wrong and insulting, if that girl lived in her parents basement would she have made the same comment? But it’s the same thing. That was rude and uncalled for #SharkTank #wannadate”


Another fan appreciated Cuban’s gesture to help out budding entrepreneurs like Melissa. He says, “@ABCSharkTank @[email protected] You helping the Wanna Date CEO rocked! ♥️#SharkTank”

‘Shark Tank’ Season 11 airs every Sunday 9 pm, only on ABC.
