Debbie Johnson from 90 Day Fiancé has broken her silence on her boyfriend Tony’s tattoo which fans think was inspired by the Ustaše, a Croatian fascist and terrorist organization active before and during World War II. Colt Johnson’s mother is currently living the main character storyline while she dates Tony on 90 Day: The Single Life season 3. After a shocking makeover that included weight loss, new hair, and Botox, Debbie dated unsuccessfully in season 2, until she met Canadian man Tony through a friend. At first Tony wasn’t Debbie’s type due to his thin physique and body ink, but in a recent episode, she told him she loved him and Tony asked Debbie to move in with him.
While Colt is shocked to find out that Debbie is planning to move to Canada after spending just three days together with her new boyfriend, fans too are surprised by her justifying Tony’s tattoos. A Reddit user called u/MommySaysBadTurdsToo posted a screenshot of Tony’s back which was shown during his Single Life intro, along with several screenshots of Debbie’s replies to fans talking about Tony’s tattoo. In the chats that Debbie had with TLC viewers, she can be seen declaring things such as, “Hello, it’s not a white supremacy tattoo,” and “It’s a Croatian flag.” In one instance, Debbie told a 90 Day Fiancé fan, “you are as stupid as you look,” before saying they are “plain ignorant” and accusing them of “spreading lies” to get attention.
Everything 90 Day Fiancé’s Debbie Is Saying About Tony’s Tattoos
According to Debbie, Tony’s family is from Croatia which is “an absolute gorgeous country.” She added, “Tony is the least racist person I know,” and claimed, “It does not now or ever has been a Nazi symbol,” referring to the tattoo. Debbie wants critics to “go back to school” because she thinks Tony is “not a radical or anything like that.” She has also written, “he loves the country its beautiful and Nazis were removed from that country decades ago.” The words, “Evo zore, evo dana,” also tattooed on 90 Day Fiancé celeb Tony’s lower back, were brought up by fans who claim it translates to “Here comes the dawn, here comes the day,” and is a Croatian marching song first used by the fascist Ustaše. However, 90 Day Fiancé cast member Debbie has added, “Btw, it’s a flag not a Nazi marching song,” to a fan who’s called out Debbie’s new man.
After reading Debbie’s replies, u/Kupina123, who themselves are from Croatia, shared a gif of the Croatian flag to explain that the flag has to start with red. They spoke about how if the flag starts with white, it has a completely different meaning and ideology. “He knew what he was tattooing and meaning behind it,” they shared. TLC viewer u/EriannaG posted, “his is not the Croatian coat of arms. It is the Ustase one which were Nazi Allies in Croatia that killed hundreds of Serbs and Jews.” Moreover, 90 Day Fiancé‘s Debbie saying that Tony is the “least” racist person she knows is also a strange thing to say because it could mean that she knows more than one racist person and is comparing Tony to them.
There are some fans who still want to agree with Debbie or those who think Tony got the tattoo done accidentally without knowing its real meaning. Meanwhile, Debbie speaking on Tony’s behalf also reveals the current status of their 90 Day Fiancé relationship. Debbie and Tony are still going strong and have been spotted by various fans in Las Vegas, and also in Canada, so one cannot be too sure of whether Debbie has moved to Tony’s country. As much as fans are not okay with Tony’s presence on the show, most want things between him and reality TV star Debbie to work out in the end.
