‘If you want her to suffer, mission accomplished’: Married At First Sight’s Booka Nile and Beth Moore beg viewers to stop hurling abuse at Rebecca Zemek following her shock cheating scandal
She was busted kissing an old flame on camera during Sunday’s explosive reunion episode.
And after Married At First Sight Rebecca Zemek faced an abundance of backlash over the ‘cheating’ scandal, two of her fellow castmates have defended the 27-year-old and begged viewers stop hurling abuse at her online.
Booka Nile – who Beck was originally angry at after she gave her ‘husband’ Jake Edwards a friendly New Year’s kiss – said the response to the scandal has been ‘vile’.

‘It’s really hard to watch the entire nation pull her apart for a mistake that many, many people have made,’ the rocker, 31, said.
‘She’s suffering enough. If you want her to suffer, mission accomplished – can we quit it now?’
‘She hasn’t killed anybody, so let’s stop acting like she has,’ she concluded.
Beth Moore, 39, also shared a video saying: ‘I just want everyone to take a step back, and reconsider what it is to be kind and a good person.

Not happy: Booka – who Beck was originally angry at after she gave her ‘husband’ Jake Edwards a friendly New Year’s kiss – said the response to the scandal has been ‘vile’
‘I know you all have strong moral values and you want to defend those, but part of those moral values is being kind when someone makes a mistake and f**ks up.
‘It’s important to stand up for people, even when they’re in the wrong. We all just need a lesson in kindness.’
After cancelling all of her press interviews and going into hiding on Monday, Beck eventually broke her silence in the evening to speak out about the kiss.
‘Looking back at it I can see how one hundred per cent it was a betrayal of trust,’ she admitted.
Beck had left her ‘husband’ Jake in Sydney while rushing back to Perth to take care of her ailing dog Oscar, and was revealed to have kissed a mystery man in footage shown during the finale.
Speaking out: Beth, 39, also shared a video saying: ‘I just want everyone to take a step back, and reconsider what it is to be kind and a good person’
She continued to claim the man was an ex who she had enlisted to transport the sick pooch.
‘At the time in my emotional state I didn’t see it or think of it as cheating,’ she had said.
But later she changed her tune, conceding, ‘I one hundred per cent would say it’s cheating.’
During the reunion episode, Rebecca was initially adamant the man was her brother, but now claims that was an honest mistake on her part.
‘The footage went so fast and I didn’t even really know what it was. I thought it was my brother. I had a few visitors come and go I was just so excited to see people and everyone was helping me out,’ she recalled.
‘But when watched back I was like, ‘I know exactly what this is’ so I had to be open and honest.’
