Elizabeth put out a statement about her stance on the LGBTQ community after her mother made a homophobic post on Instagram, but 90 Day Fiance fans feel like she only released a statement so she and her family wouldn’t get canceled.

Elizabeth used very blanket terms and attempted to distance herself from her mother’s standpoint, but fans felt like she was insincere.

Fans are already annoyed and frustrated by Elizabeth and her family for their behavior and played out storyline, so Elizabeth’s apology could have been a desperate grasp to keep the fans that they have left.

Elizabeth’s mom’s post definitely offended many people in the 90 Day community. The situation garnered enough attention for Elizabeth to feel like she had to put out a statement condemning the ideas coming from her family.

90 Day Fiance fans did not buy Elizabeth’s apology for her family

90 Day Fiance fans thought Elizabeth’s response video was artificial and more of a plea for her family not to get canceled.

The headline of the Reddit thread about Elizabeth’s apology was, “How do you say ‘don’t cancel me’ without saying ‘don’t cancel me.'”
