Even though Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima haven’t been a couple for a long time at this point, they somehow got cast on 90 Day Fiance Happily Ever After. That means, we get to see more of Colt’s mom, Debbie Johnson, and their cats. But, weirdly enough, we also get to see Colt’s new girlfriend, Jess Caroline. He is dating yet another Brazilian woman, who may or may not be interested in him for the camera time and a shot at a visa.
During the most recent episode, Colt visited Jess in Chicago and met some of her friends, who also happen to be Brazilian. Jess made some bothersome comments about her own culture. She generalized that all Brazilian women love sex and like to have it on the first date. There’s nothing wrong with either of those things, but it’s not quite fair to make a sweeping statement about an entire group of people.
The Instagram fan account 90dayfiancetoday shared a screenshot from an Instagram Story that Jess shared. She began, “Open letter to all Brazilian women: Dear Brazilians, I want you to know that I read/listen to your messages. I would like to make a formal apology to all Brazilian women I offended with my generalized speech on the episodes.”
Jess said, “I recognize how problematic my statement was and by any means, I [didn’t mean] to add to the already hypersexualized stereotype of the Brazilian women around the world. I apologize for the way I expressed myself. I meant to give a personal opinion, on my amateur English I ended up generalizing and I see how jeopardizing that is.
She wrote, Unfortunately, I can’t go back on what was said, now I can only be transparent to all of you, say that I’m so sorry for all the baggage this brings and I’m holding myself accountable for what I said.”
Jess concluded, “Deconstruction of sexism is a daily task, and instead of taking this as a loss, I’m taking it as a learning opportunity,” she concluded. “I have my messages open so we can talk about this, I hope to learn more and listen to what you have to say. My humble apologies, Jess.”
