90 Day Fiancé: Ella Says Editing Is Not Her Department After Backlash

Ella Johnson reminds viewers she has no control over the editing of her 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days segments after facing backlash. Midwesterner Ella made her debut on a recent episode of the 90 Day Fiancé spinoff following weeks of tears about her exciting storyline. This is the first time the show has featured a Chinese cast member after Ella found Johnny on a group for white women and Asian men. It was instant love for Ella since she’s always been into all things Asian and dreams of having an anime character as a partner. However, Ella was soon accused of generalizing Asian culture and fetishizing Asian men.

Many of Ella's comments on 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days have landed her in trouble. Some TLC viewers have accused Ella of casual racism, but others believe she is living in a fantasy world to escape reality and doesn’t quite know what she’s doing. Although Ella had a difficult childhood and later, boyfriends who took advantage of her due to her weight, she thinks Johnny is the one as he’s been constantly considerate. Johnny plans to have kids with Ella, but they haven’t even met face to face yet. Whether Johnny and Ella even get together is a different question entirely. As of now, Ella is trying to deal with the backlash in a positive way.

A 90 Day Fiancé viewer with the user name N7Skully on Reddit found a few of Ella’s responses to the online hate via a friend who’s in the same YuYu Hakusho group as the Idaho woman. In her defense, Ella points out she has no control over editing and that the show only has time to include so much. However, Ella seems to believe there’s no such thing as bad publicity. “So I guess bring on the hate and malcontents I love myself inside and out lol,” she confidently added. “Took me awhile but I made it,” Ella concluded. Ella says she is a normal person with her heart on her sleeve who wanted to share her story on 90 Day Fiancé and has no regrets about doing it.

Ella also said she expected support from her fellow anime lovers. She’s learned the hard way that some people can just be so cruel, despite what she wishes. Ella is sorry to those who don't approve of her but points out, “the only one who has to be happy with me is me and the people I care about.” Additionally, Ella says that one can continue to see her as “an anime freak” but she really does “respect Asian culture.

The editing may or may not have given Ella a certain kind of personality on the show, but she had “a blast” filming it with her crew. If she is to be believed, there is a lot more to Ella than what 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days has shown. It might take a few more weeks for viewers to understand her real POV and find out if she really loves Johnny or is only excited about dating an Asian man. Besides, like Ella’s family, some viewers think Johnny too is sketchy and lying about his age and actual motives.
