Gino Palazzolo can’t seem to accept that he got caught in a lie during the 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days Tell All because he doubled down on his innocence on a 90 Day fan page’s post.

He was confronted by host Shaun Robinson about whether he DMed or communicated with any 90 Day cast this season. He said that he didn’t but was then shown evidence that he messaged Ben Rathbun’s friend Jessica on Instagram.

Gino was quick to say he remembered their conversation after he was presented with his message to her but said that she was the one who messaged him. However, Gino couldn’t back it up with receipts.

On Instagram, a tweet was reshared that highlighted Gino’s message to Jessica, and Gino had something to say in his defense which prompted 90 Day viewers to speak up.

Gino had a pointed response to the post on Instagram.

He interjected, “Keep in mind she has siciliano in her IG name. This is the reason I asked the question in the first place. Also she contacted me first by replying to my story. Lastly she called me to do IG live with her and Ben but I was working and couldn’t attend. There was nothing there so don’t blow this out of proportion.”

Gino’s comment received sweeping criticism from Before the 90 Days viewers.

One popular point read, “Then why did you have to lie about it?? That’s the issue.”

Someone else wrote, “We can see it clearly on your face every time you try to hide something dude.”

Another critic added, “No one believes you.”
