90 Day Fiance celeb Julia Trubkina is in the hot seat as full-scale war has broken out between Russia and Ukraine. So what happened?
90 Day Fiance: Julia Trubkina in the Hot Seat
As 90 Day Fiance fans keeping up with the news know, Russia invaded Ukraine as the countries engage in war. Meanwhile, because TLC has a long history of casting people from the region on the flagship show and its spinoffs, everything going on affects a lot of celebs.
Meanwhile, with tensions at an all-time high, Julia is being slammed for just being Russian and citing Russian people do not want war. In it, she alluded to the fact that what is happening is solely because of the government – and that the current violence isn’t something that the average Russian citizen wants.
Brandon Gibbs’ Wife Faces Backlash
The world is on edge as the conflict in Eastern Europe escalates. Speaking from the perspective of a Russian citizen, Julia added that her people feel “sorry” about what’s going on – adding that this is “not normal”.
All in all, she didn’t say anything particularly incendiary. But even so, that hasn’t stopped 90 Day Fiance viewers from going after her. Meanwhile, it got bad enough that Brandon Gibbs’ wife responded.
In response to the backlash, she pleaded with people to “stop attacking” her. Moreover, she said people are coming after her like she is the one responsible for starting this conflict. Suffice it to say; things are tense – and not just on the battlefield.
90 Day Fiance Celeb Not the Only One in Hot Water
With full-scale war breaking out between Russia and Ukraine, Julia Trubkina isn’t the only Russian star in hot water recently. 90 Day Fiance watchers slammed Natalie Mordovtseva and Varya Malina for making social media reels together. And essentially profiting off of the crisis in Ukraine.
Because Natalie has family in Ukraine, many see it as insensitive of her to party on the beach with Varya. Especially as her people are dying. As for Varya, this isn’t the first time she made money from tragedy, either.
All in all, it’s a tense time for the world at large. And tensions spill over for 90 Day Fiance cast members and viewers alike. Not surprisingly, Brandon Gibbs stands by his wife as she deals with backlash due to her recent commentary. Even so, everyone may have to walk on eggshells until this latest conflict is over. Check out a clip of her interview with Dr. Drew.
