Things are getting a bit out of hand. Time to simmer down.
A few days ago it was announced that Edd China is leaving the popular TV series Wheeler Dealers after a 15-year run. As the show's much loved and respected mechanic and automotive repair magician, China has amassed a very loyal following that are now devastated to see him go. While there's been an outpouring of support for him, a lot of hate has been geared towards Mike Brewer, and Edd China is here to say that's completely unacceptable.
In his latest YouTube channel post, China explains that Brewer called him over the weekend and said that his wife and daughter have received a lot of abuse and even death threats all because China is leaving. And, in the words of China, "that's really NOT cool."
Yes, the two have had a disagreement over the show's direction and neither one is probably the other's favorite person right now. However, China makes it clear that's all irrelevant when it comes to the well-being of Brewer and his family. All parties involved will now move on and, as China makes crystal clear, his leaving creates new opportunities for him to "pursue other ventures." Edd, you're a classy guy. We can't wait to see what you'll do next.
