Tarek El Moussa is not letting the haters bring him down.
In an Instagram Reel on Thursday, the Flip or Flop alum shared his response to some of the criticism he receives about his home renovation projects. The dad of three acknowledges that people hating on his work often “comes with the territory” of being a public figure.
“People will always have something to say about my flips, but guess what…I’m not stopping!! In fact, all the negativity gives me the motivation to keep going and challenges me to go above and beyond at every flip,” he writes in the caption.
In the Reel, the HGTV star revealed some of the comments he’s referring to, including one that said, “He shouldn’t be on TV at all.”
Another user wrote, “Lol the guy is a fool! He makes money because any fool can in California!” followed by a different commenter calling on Tarek’s ex-wife, Christina Hall, whom he used to host Flip or Flop with.
“Can we get more Christina, his shows don’t make any sense lol,” the comment reads.
Seemingly unfazed by the negativity, El Moussa then gives a shoutout to his renovation projects that fans can expect to see in the upcoming season of HGTV’s The Flipping El Moussas, which he hosts with his wife Heather.
“We’re doing just that on season 2! Can’t wait to show you what’s up our sleeves this season. 👏”
From haters to his own personal struggles, Tarek is open to discussing touchy subjects in his life.
In September, the real estate investor announced he would be releasing a new book in February 2024 — FLIP YOUR LIFE: How to Find Opportunity in Distress—in Real Estate, Business, and Life — in which he will open up about private incidents from his past and explain how he was able to overcome those hardships.
