Bad Vegan on Netflix Review, Fans’ Reactions

The Guardian calls it a “fascinating tale of a $2m fraud and an immortal dog.PureWow calls it the “newest obsession” for fans of Inventing Anna and The Tinder Swindler. And Decider says: “STREAM IT. We really wish Bad Vegan: Fame. Fraud. Fugitives. was less one-sided, but at least the side we see makes for an entertaining story.” 

However, fans don’t seem to agree with this positive feedback from the critics. With an average rating of 5.9 on IMDb a reviewer begs Netflix, “Don’t make any more psycho shows like this. So many people of color cant get into business this woman does and allows herself to be taken for the mental ride of her life and she seems to rather enjoy it.

Another writes, “Overall very far-fetched unbelievable documentary. I just think it’s too much and anyone with half a brain would know it’s a load of crap.” One scathing review read: “Maybe I am worn out by stories about privileged white women losing their minds by joining cults, but I felt no sympathy for Sarma.”
