A Twitter user pointed out the situation, saying Deja should be "owed sympathy," labeling her as a "victim" and even calling for the child services to get involved in the situation.

"Deja Haugabook is owed sympathy," the user explained. "She should be spared the horrible comments bc she is a victim, even if she doesn't know. I hate that people are dragging her instead of having empathy. I hope that @MyFLFamilies will investigate what looks like molestation by Michael Haugabook."

Despite all the negative responses on the internet, the couple's relationship seems to be going strong.

They posted an intimate picture of them in each other's arms via Instagram with the caption, "Love wins!! Y'all got so much time for our life! If you put this energy into your own career or family structure, we might be a world full of happy millionaires!"
