'Welcome To Plathville': Plath family slammed as being 'creepy' and 'controlling' after old documentary about them resurfaces
The Plath family's old video documentary highlighting their music career resurfaced recently but people do not have a good opinion about it.
The Plath family has been in the news ever since it was announced that they would be appearing on TLC with their show 'Welcome To Plathville'. The show is set to premiere on November 5 and has already had people talking about it since its trailer dropped. However, many fans have been questioning their way of living.
The Plaths in their trailer tell the audience that they are not an ordinary family as they have stayed away from social media, technology, sugar or even fast food. In a new video that documents the life of the Plath family, their musical journey has been highlighted. At the same time, some of the family members have given an insight into their life.
However, people had their doubts about the family after listening to some of the things they had to say. One of the daughters mentioned that her mother "kept her in order". At the same time, Barry talks about his oldest son, Ethan and how he was a "hard nut to crack". Kim's thoughts about a wife "being on the husband's page" did not fit well with many. Some of the fans took to the comment section to share their thoughts. One user wrote, "Mommy keeps me in order” the girl is like 18 this is signs of control."
Another user pointed out that the Plath family seems to give off a negative vibe as the comment read, "There's something behind these parents smiles. I think they want to isolate their kids cause they want them to be not of this world. It's weird how they all are very pale and white-blond hair." Meanwhile, one plainly wrote, "Yall are creepy."
Another user remarked that the children should be allowed to interact with the world outside their farmhouse as the comment read, "I don't want to sound mean because I'm just being honest. I think when people raise kids without some kind of knowledge of the world especially nowadays it is just wrong. What if those kids had to leave that 5-mile town and be forced into city life? It would be horrifying to them. I love a country life it looks so inviting but not to the point that I'm not aware of the world and what to look out for. I wish them the best."
This is not the first time that the Plath family has been criticized. Previously, people dug up their tragic past and questioned TLC's choice of shows. While the show is yet to premiere, it looks like the audience has already formed an impression about them.
