Alina Kozhevnikova is about to disappear from the currently airing season of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days!
The Ashley‘s sources at TLC— the network behind the “90 Day” spin-off— tell her that the decision was made over the weekend to hack Alina from the show, due to multiple racist, racially insensitive and offensive social media posts she’s made in the past that have continued to surface.
The Ashley’s sources tell her that the show’s editors are currently scrambling to cut Alina— who hails from Russia and is appearing on the show with her Arizona-based man Caleb Greenwood—out of future episodes.
The Ashley can’t confirm if Alina and/or Caleb have been notified yet that they’re being let go.
Fans started demanding Alina be removed from the show after her past social media posts kept surfacing. In one, Alina excitedly posts to Facebook that she’s been invited to a “Ni**a Party,” in which participants are encouraged to dress “hood” and have a party featuring “black music,” and have fun in a “ni**a atmosphere.”

In another post to Instagram, Alina posted a photo of herself in Middle Eastern clothing and captioned the post, “Got married today. Became a 134th wife!”

Other posts have continued to surface this month, with many of them being posted to “90 Day” accounts such as @90ShotzFired.
“The producers are horrified that this stuff keeps coming out, and keeps getting worse and worse,” the source told The Ashley. “Despite what some people think, they don’t do an extensive dive into the cast member’s backgrounds, so that’s how this went undiscovered during filming.”
UPDATE! A spokesperson for TLC has confirmed Alina’s firing in a statement to TMZ issued Wednesday.
“TLC discontinued filming with Alina Kozhevnikova following the recent discovery of her past social media statements. 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.”
(The Ashley’s source said that she will be in this week’s episode for sure, and most likely next week’s, but will then be cut.)
TMZ reports that Alina’s man Caleb “has stood by her side [and is] insisting she’s not racist, and that he knows her heart.”
(It is unknown if Caleb will appear on the ‘Tell All.’)
Alina has yet to issue any sort of apology for her actions. On the day The Ashley’s story posted, though, she did post this to Instagram.
“Despite what’s being said about me, my friends, family and those who met me in person know who I really am & who I am not. And I know it too
the answers are coming,” she captioned a photo of herself.

It’s always so interesting to see what crawls out of the racist slime the US is mired in when a white woman is held accountable for her behavior. So many of the comments here are, in themselves, clear examples of how racism and its toxicity are so misunderstood and yet so casually expressed. Why is it so hard for so many white people, of which I am one, to recognize and hold themselves and others to a standard of basic human decency? Blatantly racist comments, like those expressed by this woman, are DEEPLY harmful regardless of what some of you here believe. You don’t get to decide whether or not something you neither understand nor experience is hurtful to people of color. Please do better.
She of all people has got a lot of nerve judging someone on their appearance/something they have no control over/can’t change about themselves.
Your use of the R word is BEYOND DEGROGATORY!! You should be ashamed of yourself. Grow up!! It is as derogatory/evil/disgusting of a word as the N word. As an Aunt of a child with Down Syndrome I am extremely offended.

I really enjoyed her being on the show. I don’t think she should be fired. People make mistakes. I hate the people who go out of there way to tear people down. She didn’t hurt anyone. Some comments that aren’t appropriate now a days. I truly feel for her if they did fire her.
Racism isn’t a mistake
This is bullshit. I don’t give a fuck about her RaCiSt posts and if you do, you’re a LOSER. I’m here to be entertained.
Girl should be canceled but I have to admit her storyline was interesting
Why? Why would someone do that? Why would people even think about a party like that?
What a biotch.
So TLC will quickly edit out a racist but abusers are allowed to remain on the show… I would think that both are equally worthy of removal. I wonder if TLC even cares that Paschel was found guilty.. and they had ample opportunity to remove him before the season even aired
Agree 100% on this.
I’m glad they’ve moved quickly on Alina & cutting her but why is Angela (from Mykool) still on the show when she’s physically & verbally abused him on camera?
And that Geoffrey dude – his police report is as long as your arm with current legal issues and he stayed on telly through a whole season!
TLC picking & choosing…..
Actually, his trial was just a few months ago and was found guilty. The charges were made after his episodes. People found out about his past and complained. The season was nearly over and TLC cut him out of the Tell All.
TLC was wrong to even put him on the show because if they did a background search they would have seen he was trouble.
He’s being sentenced on Feb 2…..I hope they give him the max.
Yes, exactly as I said!
He’s had multiple legal issues & either TLC didn’t check his background or they didn’t care.
Good riddance! Her and her nose were getting on my nerves!
Northern Ireland hasn’t been very tolerant towards each other as far as the Orange vs. the Catholics go.
I’m not going to comment on the UK.
Yes. Because im sure she has never faced any racism, stereotyping or hurtful comments as a Russian little person…
America is too woke. Calm down and relax.
Just because she’s faced hardships and discrimination doesn’t excuse her racism. Maybe you need to wake up bro, it’s 2022 not 1860.
Well I’m Irish, and so you can get back to me when your country decides to take leprechauns off of their cereal boxes.
Is it blatant stereotyping and racism??? YUP.
Do we ever complain about it?? Nope!
Is Ireland known as being a racist country??
Because we are tolerant and we have a good sense of humour.
We just get on with everyone.
I am a person of color who, as a child, had white adults call me the N-word. You have clearly never had that word hurled or spat at you with all the racial animus it carries or you wouldn’t tell Black Americans to have a sense of humor about that.
All that being said, I wish they had just done a racial awareness session with her. She seems more racially ignorant that a true racist.
BTW, I never liked that caricature of the leprechaun
How hard is it for TLC to research these people before casting them? They don’t do a deep dive of their cast members?? Scrolling through their social media pages, doing a background check, asking people close to them about their character-doesn’t take much effort. An intern could do it! Put in a little effort TLC & this will stop happening…
Sorry I didn’t mean to post a reply… just wanted to comment in general….
So because she has faced discrimination it gives her a pass to be racist? That’s idiotic and willfully ignorant.
So that justifies her horrible words and behavior??? Not!!!!
So that justifies her horrible words and behavior??? Not!! Has nothing to do with being woke it has to do with a decent a human being/ or a horrible one.
it’s not hard to not be racist, that’s karma for you 🤷🏻♀️
