There is no denying that “Alaskan Bush People” has been a huge hit on The Discovery Channel for years. Avid followers of the show have learned to love the Brown family, who shunned living the modern society and relied on each other for food, shelter and other basic needs.

Along with its popularity, the show was also involved in various controversies, which include the allegations claiming that the show is full of fakery. Recently, Rain Brown received a major backlash after she posted photos of her while her mother Ami is fighting for her life in Los Angeles.

Rain slammed for posting selfies while her mom is in critical state

Rain Brown has been regularly sharing selfies with inspirational messages since her family shut down the Browntown for California. The 14-year-old “Alaskan Bush People” star lets her fans know that she is doing her best to stay positive while Ami Brown is on her death bed at UCLA Medical Center.

While some fans admire Rain’s optimism, there were also a few who criticized her for posting a series of selfies even after Ami’s stage 4 lung cancer diagnosis. The Brown matriarch also announced that she only has a three-percent survival rate.

However, Rain Brown wasted no time clapping back at her critics and slammed them in a string of heartfelt messages.

The young “Alaskan Bush People” star even confessed that she had cried while reading a story about her mom’s fight against the disease.

“Ever hear the quote the hearts that are broken the most are hid by the biggest smiles? Yep! It’s true!” Rain wrote. “Trying to hurt people that are going through so much pain doesn’t make you any smarter, prettier or better,” she said in another post.

At the moment, Rain and her family are in Los Angeles as Ami Brown undergoes radiation and chemotherapy for her cancer. The Brown family previously revealed that they are planning to set up a new Browntown in Colorado.

‘ABP’ series is allegedly based on a book

Meanwhile, The Hollywood Gossip claimed that the “Alaskan Bush People” series could possibly be based on a book.

The news outlet shared that Billy Brown published a book titled “One Wave at a Time” in 2007 and spoke to several producers to negotiate for the book to be adapted into a show.

The Brown family returned to Alaska and recreated the lifestyle described in the book later on. The publication stated that some parts of the show could be true but the clan clearly planned for their adventures to be documented in small screens.

While these claims could possibly be true, it should be noted that Discovery has yet to confirm or deny these speculations. Therefore, avid fans of the show should take these speculations lightly until everything is proven true and correct. Stay tuned for more "Alaskan Bush People" spoilers, news and updates!
