So what was it that triggered viewers to go off on Mama Debbie?
90 Day Fiance – Debbie Johnson A Victim of Reality Fame – Colt Johnson Mom Bashed
The modern-day trend of turning everyday people into reality stars isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Just ask any of the 90 Day Fiance cast members about the problems that come along with their 15 minutes of fame. It looks like Debbie found out the hard way. Many reality stars experience the rude awakening of just how cruel people can be. Especially when you expose your life to the masses via a TV show.
It was easy to see Debbie Johnson supported Colt through his journey that landed him a wife from Brazil. Despite Colt and Larissa’s ups and downs, Debbie was there for her son. This was seen on the TLC reality show. That’s not to say that Debbie didn’t voice a negative opinion now and then about the situation. She also appeared to bite her tongue on a few 90 Day Fiance episodes.
Despite Larissa Christina Issues, Mama Deb Supported
Colt’s mother even whispered that Larissa is “a bit*h” while looking into the 90 Day Fiance cameras at one point during Colt’s engagement. Still, she stood by her son. Debbie wasn’t going to get in the way of his marriage despite any feelings she secretly harbored. So when the wedding episode rolled around, Debbie Johnson was there for her son.
From trying to knot his tie to walking him down the aisle at the wedding ceremony, Colt’s mom was there. Debbie Johnson did her part and she let the online trolls know all about it. After Debbie posted a picture showing her and Colt walking down the aisle on her Instagram account, the trolls came out. They picked apart everything from what she wore to her choice of makeup at the wedding.

A Mother’s Obligation or Option?
Debbie was quick to point out there were four weddings shown on 90 Day Fiance Sunday. She and Kalani Faagata’s mother were the only two moms to make it to their child’s special day. With eight bride and grooms, there should have been eight mothers but there were only two. Debbie points out that she’s one of the mothers who did make their child’s 90 Day Fiance wedding.
She also points out that moms usually do support their child’s big day no matter what they feel about the marriage. The outfit Debbie Johnson wore to Colt and Larissa Christina’s 90 Day Fiance wedding came under scrutiny by the trolls. Someone attempted to bash her for wearing jeans. Debbie was quick to bark back that she didn’t wear denim to the wedding.
Another troll online referred to Debbie’s pink shirt as “old”. While she said the shirt “has been worn once or twice” she chose it because it matched her son’s pink tie. She then said if people don’t like it, she doesn’t care. She said she was just there to see him marry the woman he loves and support him.
Debbie’s Famous Fan Says She’s Beautiful
Basically, Debbie Johnson defended her mode of dress but plenty of 90 Day Fiance fans chimed in to tell her she looked beautiful. They also assured her that she didn’t have to defend what she wore. Even comedian Amy Schumer left a post on her Instagram to tell her she looked beautiful.
While both Larissa Christina and Colt Johnson endured their share of trolls but many think Debbie doesn’t deserve this. Yes, she’s on the reality show but she’s not doing anything but offering support to her son. With that said, some viewers believe Debbie’s a bit too enmeshed in her son’s life. The good thing is it looks like she’s got thick skin so she’s dealing with the haters better than others on 90 Day Fiance.
Many TLC fans posted online that they’d be proud to have Debbie as their mother or mother-in-law. People also gave a shoutout to Colt Johnson for having such a great mom. That compliment seems to say it all!
