- Controversial 90 Day Fiancé cast member Kimberly faces backlash for making racist comments about Indians, causing outrage among fans.
- In a TikTok Live video, Kimberly suggests that people in India don’t use deodorant, sparking accusations of racism and ignorance.
- Despite Kimberly’s derogatory remarks, it appears that her relationship with her Indian fiancé TJ is still intact, as shown by their continued social media activity.
Controversial 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way cast member Kimberly Rochelle is facing the heat for making a racist comment about Indian people. Kimberly is a 30-year-old woman from Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Kimberly says she is clairvoyant and had dreamed of her future partner several months before she was contacted by Tejaswi Goswami, AKA TJ, on a social media group. Kimberly fell for the 33-year-old Jaipur-based voice-over artist and moved to India for a year on a student visa before they got engaged. Kimberly was going to get married to TJ in the 90 Day Fiancé spin-off, but had several arguments with him before their wedding.
Kimberly and TJ stayed together until the finale but her latest statements about Indians (as shared by u/Weezy-Jefferson) reveal what she feels about her husband and the people in his country.
The video is a screen recording of Kimberly during a TikTok Live where she is seemingly responding to questions from her fans while doing her makeup. Kimberly receives an inappropriate question that asks her, “Is it true that people smell bad in India?” and she chooses to answer it. Kimberly takes a long pause and looks at the camera before saying, “Y’all, India doesn’t have deodorant the way the U.S. has deodorant, from what I understand.”
Is 90 Day Fiancé’s Kimberly Still In India With TJ?
Kimberly continues, “Um, it’s just something like deo, which kinda just reminds me of like, an axe body spray kind of thing.” She claims that the body spray “goes away very fast” before adding, “From what I understand,” as she smirks and carries on with blending her make-up. 90 Day Fiancé fans in the comment section of the Reddit thread are calling Kimberly “racist” and “ignorant.” Reddit user Illustrious_lana commented, “Is this girl an expert on how over 1 billion Indian people smell? Racist question and racist answer.” Meanwhile, aquafilsna explained, “Saying ‘all Indian people smell bad’ like she said, nor and straight up LYING and saying ‘deodorant doesn’t exist in India’ is racist”
Kimberly is going to be called out by Jenny Slatten on the upcoming 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way Tell All for saying “I hate India” on the show. Jenny and Sumit Singh said Kimberly saying that broke their hearts. Jenny asked Kimberly to “respect India or don’t be here.” Kimberly was shameless and kept giggling while Jenny gave her the advice. Kimberly took things too far when she called Jenny a “c**t” in front of all the other cast members on set. Kimberly has been in America since September 2023, and it looks like she has no plans to return.
