90 Day Fiance stars Varya Malina and Natalie Mordovtseva drew flak over their seemingly tone-deaf remark amid an ongoing crisis. The TLC celebs spent time together lately and made some eyebrow-raising comments about Russia and Ukraine.
The two countries are currently at war, affecting thousands of innocent lives. Varya and Natalie, who are from Russia and Ukraine, respectively, shared their two cents about the serious matter, but it did not sit well with fans. Here's why.
90 Day Fiance: Varya Malina and Natalie Mordovtseva in Hot Water Over Tone-Deaf Joke
It looks like Varya Malina and Natalie Mordovtseva annoyed some 90 Day Fiance fans with their insensitive remark about the deadly war between Ukraine and Russia. Varya recently took to her Instagram Stories and shared a photo with Natalie.
The two appeared to have a blast and were all smiles as they posed for the camera. But what irked fans the most was Varya's "tone-deaf" caption.
"The Ukraine and Russia relations that work," the 90 Day Fiance alum wrote. This is amid the ongoing crisis between the two countries.
Varya's Insensitive Post Amid Ongoing War
Varya Malina seemingly realized that her post with Natalie Mordovtseva sparked outrage from fans. Shortly after sharing it, the 90 Day Fiance star deleted the post.
Of course, it was too late for the reality star as fans quickly took a screenshot of it and circulated it online. Both Varya and Natalie have yet to comment on the backlash.
However, the 90 Day Fiance stars did express their sadness about the war between their home countries. They also showed their love and support for everyone affected by the crisis.
"I didn't believe this till the very end, but the worst-case scenario came true," Varya wrote in one of her posts. "We, Russians, will be dealing with the consequences of today for a long time to come. I'm ashamed to be a citizen of the aggressor country. If one bloodthirsty old coo-coo man wants to play soldiers, give him a computer game, don't let him ruin peoples lives."
Still, many are dismayed with Varya and Natalie. Aside from the insensitive remark, the two have been sharing their fun moments together. Many find its timing inappropriate, especially with a war destroying both of their countries.
Varya Malina traveled to Tampa, Florida, earlier this week and met with Natalie Mordovtseva. The 90 Day Fiance celebs spent some quality time together, visiting various places and trying out fun activities.
