Alina was fired for racist social media posts

The most recent cast member to be fired from the franchise is Alina Kozhevnikova from season 5 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days. According to TMZ, Alina was fired from TLC after fans discovered her now-deleted social media posts using racist slurs. Alina’s posts, initially posted back in 2014-2015, have resurfaced and circulated over the internet.

In a Facebook post (via Twitter), the Russian-born reality TV star described a party she was invited to using the n-word in the caption many times. She then repeated the racial slur in an Instagram caption (via Twitter), where she also mocked Asian and Muslim people.

TLC released a statement:

“TLC discontinued filming with Alina Kozhevnikova following the recent discovery of her past social media statements,” the statement said. “She will not appear on the upcoming Tell All, any future seasons of the franchise and starting next month, she will no longer appear on Before the 90 Days. TLC does not tolerate racism or discrimination of any kind.”

Geoffrey Paschel fired for his domestic abuse charges

Featured on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Season 4, Geoffrey Paschel managed to get on the show despite having a long criminal rap sheet. After being accused of domestic violence against his ex-girlfriend, Kristen Wilson, Geoffrey was on the TLC show.

After 90 Day Fiancé fans found out about his pending domestic abuse case, they petitioned that he be removed from the show. He and his fiancée, Varya Malina, were not present for the tell-all. This indicated that he was also fired from the franchise.

On October 7th, Geoffrey was found guilty of aggravated kidnapping, domestic violence, and interference of an emergency call. He is currently in jail, awaiting his sentencing date in February 2022. According to the experts on CourtTV, Geoffrey could be facing anywhere from 8-30 years in prison.

‘Baby Girl’ Lisa’s use of the n-word

Back in season 4 of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, “Baby girl” Lisa Hamme was also allegedly fired from the franchise for racist remarks. In 2020, the entire Before the 90 Days Season 4 virtual tell-all was leaked online. In the unedited tell-all footage, Lisa called her then-husband, Usman “Sojaboy” Umar the n-word while arguing.

In an interview for the Domenick Nati Show, Lisa tried to justify using the racist slur. She said:

“That word was used out of context. It was used out of stupidity. My husband accepted my apology but haters don’t. They want to ride it out to no end. Other very famous people that do entertainment, they said just let it die down. Let the haters just subside. And the ones who are riding it are the ones who are trying to become popular, like you. That is their goal. And by any means, they’re going to do it. So I’m just going to ignore those haters.”  

While she denies ever being fired from TLC, her ex-husband, Usman, is on the current season of Before the 90 Days, and they’ve yet to mention her name or show throwback clips of Lisa, which supports claims that she was fired from TLC.

TLC does an excellent job of showing different types of people of all races, ages, religions, and sexual preferences. Many 90 Day Fiancé fans hope that TLC will do a better job of choosing their cast members in the future. 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days airs Sundays on TLC and discovery+.
