90 Day Fiance star Steven Frend, husband of Olga Koshimbetova, has had enough of all the haters criticizing him for his GoFundMe campaign. The 21-year-old father of one has been bombarded with hateful comments after his unapologetic attitude on the TLC Tell All.
90 Day Fiance: Steven Frend Faces Backlash Over Tell All Actions
On Sunday’s explosive Tell All episode of 90 Day Fiance, viewers witnessed more drama than usual from the cast members. Couples from the current season went all out as they addressed controversies and brought up issues about each other.
While each couple had their moments during the tell-all, one person single-handedly stole the spotlight and for all the wrong reasons. Fans of the hit TLC reality series expressed their dismay on Steven Frend and called his behavior “arrogant” and “insensitive”.

Steven Thinks Olga Koshimbetova Should Be More Grateful
During the episode of 90 Day Fiance, we saw Steven Frend address what seems to be endless criticism of his treatment to Olga Koshimbetova after she gave birth to their son Richie Aleksandr Frend back in April 2018. TLC cameras were there to capture (and carefully edit) what happened.
Many pointed out they think Steven treated his fiance badly despite her having a C-section. However, the reality star defends himself, saying he only wants Olga to be more appreciative of his all his efforts. Asuelu Pulaa got volatile at the Tell All when Steven said this.

Asuelu Pulaa – No Fan of Steven Frend
Asuelu finds it strange and unnecessary that Steven Frend would want her to say please and thanks. He bluntly asks why Steven needs a “thank you” for helping his fiance when it’s actually his duty as a father and a partner in the first place.
Apparently, Steven thinks it’s a form of “respect” and that he deserves to have it. Steven hit back at Asuelu and seemed annoyed. While it’s true that he fans said he seemed insensitive, it is worth noting that he took his role as a father quite seriously.
90 Day Fiance: Steven Turns to GoFundMe to Help Him and Olga
The 90 Day Fiance cast member also made another eyebrow-raising remark that did not sit well with fans. During the segment, Steven Frend proudly claims he works hard all by himself to get Olga Koshimbetova and their son to the US. It’s no secret that Steven recently started a GoFundMe fundraiser asking donors to help with expenses in starting a family in the country.
Since its launch, the campaign already raised more than $5500, which already exceeded his target. But it looks like Steven is not giving enough credit to those who donated for the cause. This irked many fans, especially those who wanted to help the reality star and his small family.
GoFundMe Donor Disappointed – Steven Offers Refund
An alleged donor who donated to Steven Frend’s 90 Day Fiance GoFundMe campaign called out the TLC cast member for his actions. In a post, the displeased fan expressed his regret for contributing to the fundraiser. The critic wrote: “I donated money to your cause but after seeing you and how you act on the after show, I feel stupid for giving you money.”
Soap Dirt talked to one of the first donor’s to Steven and Olga’s GoFundMe. The donor said “I gave them money with no strings attached. After I gave, the money is theirs to do with as they please. Asking for money back is like taking food from a baby’s mouth.” He continued, “I doubt if the person that made the post actually donated.”
But Steven Frend is not letting anyone put him down, especially with accusations involving money. The 90 Day Fiance star did not hold back in defending himself and the fundraiser he started for Olga Koshimbetova and baby Alex.
In response to the criticism, he challenged the donor to show him proof that he sent money to the GoFundMe. He said he’ll give back the cash once the alleged donor proves his claim. The reality dad also reiterates that he’s not forcing anyone to donate money to their cause. GoFundMe doesn’t provide contact information for the donors, so Steven can’t know if the person was a real donor or an internet troll. All the service offers to the recipient is the name the donor wants to display as the giver. It would up to the alleged donor to provide Steven with documentation.
90 Day Fiance – Steve Frend Hits Back on Haters
“Show me proof you sent me money and I’ll send it right back,” Steven fired back. He added: “No one made you donate”. It remains unclear if the sender showed proof of his donation or if he did return the money.
It sounds like Steven Frend is serious about sending back the money to the disappointed donor. So is this all blown out of proportion? Remember that Olga Koshimbetova is quick to defend her fiance – – and they are both very young and dealing with lots of stress – plus the public eye on them thanks to TLC.
