Big Ed, one of the most controversial figures on 90 Day Fiancé, is being accused of sexual harassment by an alleged former co-worker in a series of TikTok videos.

The woman, who identifies herself online as Lolosworld, posted a handful of videos related to the alleged sexual harassment before ultimately revealing Big Ed as her assailant.

“I would like to introduce you to the man who sexually harassed and assaulted me. I’m done standing down,” the text of the reveal video reads. The TikTok then cuts to a montage of 90 Day Fiancé clips featuring Ed Brown.

The reveal video has accumulated almost half a million likes.

In other videos, Lolosworld shared a few details about her experience with Ed. They used to work together, and the alleged sexual harassment took place over the course of nine months, she said.

“Wow, I’m so happy that you’re hot because I wouldn’t want to look at someone who is ugly all day while I was working,” Lolosworld recalls him telling her the first day they met.

Later that day, Lolosworld says he put her in an armlock and pushed her to the ground.

In her first post about the sexual harassment, Lolosworld is visibly horrified that Big Ed has “moved to his next victim.”

The possible victim the TikToker is referring to is Rosemarie “Rose” Vega, Ed’s significantly younger fiancée. Even before the sexual harassment allegations came out, Ed stood out as this season’s villain.

Waves of public backlash came at Ed for lying to Rose about his appearance and not telling her he didn’t want to have kids. He also asked Rose to do things—like take an STD test and shave her legs—that she said were humiliating.

In her first video about the situation, Lolosworld said she wanted to speak up about the alleged assault but was hesitant since she signed a nondisclosure agreement.

On the other hand, Lolosworld wrote that it’s important to say something since the months of alleged sexual harassment required years of therapy. Speaking up would also be a way to support and protect other women.

“Obviously he’s still a predator,” reads the text of a TikTok.

Big Ed has yet to respond to the sexual harassment allegation.

A number of people commented under Lolosworld’s videos asking for proof and saying she’s only posting about Ed to get attention now that he’s newly famous.

“Hmm… imma need some proof but for now I think this is for clout looool I said what I said,” wrote TikTok user @yikesbye.

While many are questioning her allegation, most comments are in her defense.

“First of all, people speak up when their abusers get fame because fame means ACCESS TO MORE VICTIMS. It doesn’t matter why she’s doing it now anyway,” wrote Allison Ponthier, a popular TikToker, under Lolosworld’s reveal video.

“Thank you so much for all of your support. I honestly anticipated the worst to happen when I posted that video, so having your support really means a lot,” Lolosworld said in a video.
