Popular social media family the D&Z Family is currently facing backlash after they are being accused of faking the rescue of a family member during the flooding that has taken place in Florida.
For those who may not know, the couple behind the family’s page is Desire’e and Zay. In a series of videos posted to their TikTok page, they acknowledged that they had to evacuate due to the flooding that is currently going on as a result of Hurricane Ian. The couple shared videos of the rain and the flooding that began to occur in their area. They then shared a video letting their followers know that they were trying to rescue Zay’s mother.
They shared she was in town for their gender reveal and that she had been staying at a hotel, and they were trying to get to her but it was hard due to the flooding. His mom also shared a video showing that she had been stuck between two bodies of water. In the end, they shared that they found her walking in the water and they were able to rescue her.
However, some fans began to call them out and accuse them of faking the whole incident when there are people in Florida who really need help at the moment. Some fans also pointed out that they spotted Zay’s mom standing next to Desire’e in an earlier video when they first began to document their experience of her.
