Babygirl Lisa Hamme has been in hot water lately for her treatment of Usman Umar. After constantly arguing with Umar the entire season of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, leaked footage from the “Tell-All” showed that Hamme’s abuse went further than anyone ever thought. Umar accused her of calling him the N-word. Now, Hamme has admitted to using such language, but she doesn’t think that people should judge her for it.
Lisa Hamme and Usman Umar’s relationship
Hamme and Umar met through a mutual friend.
“We met online,” Hamme said in an interview with Without a Crystal Ball. “We met through a mutual friend out of the UK. I knew her, she knew him, and he was looking for a female companion. And I just knew her reputation, I’m like, uh, I don’t know about this…but send him through my filtered messaging, and I’ll see what it’s about.”
“I was 49 and Usman was 29 when we first met,” she continued. “And when we first met, I’ll be honest with you…I honestly thought, oh, great, another yahoo boy out of Nigeria that’s going to harass me to no end. And I gave him the benefit of the doubt because I don’t like that stigma.”
Lisa uses homophobic and racist language
Before the “Tell-All” footage was released, Hamme was already in hot water for using racist and homophobic language on her social media.
Fans even made a petition to get her kicked off of the show for her language.
“Past cast members have been terminated for homophobic slurs, and the same standards should apply for when racist slurs are used,” one of the petitions reads. “TLC should not employ these people regardless of how much attention they get. To keep her shows they condone it and have selective preferences. She has been documented saying the slur and admitted it on social media. THIS IS NOT OKAY. Make the right choice TLC.”
But, Hamme has not been taken off of the show and was still invited to participate in the “Tell- All.”
Lisa Hamme calls Usman the N-word
While filming the “Tel-All,” Hamme tried to stop Usman from telling audiences how she treated him.
“If you start this sh*t again,” she said. “Do not open that can of worms. Do not. Do not start. Let me tell you something. Listen, if you open a can of worms.”
But Umar continued anyway.
“Lisa, last week you called me n*gger which I know is totally inappropriate in America,” he said. “You called me n*gger, I don’t even get angry about it because I am used to how you are behaving.”
Lisa Hamme apologizes
Recently, Hamme went live on Instagram and apologized for her words.
“It is said if you sin and you apologize and you pray for forgiveness, it is forgiven,” she said. “So, my husband and I, it is a private manner between him and I. Because they are not going to drop it and it’s sad. Because the world needs to be united. We are human beings.”
She went on to say that people should worry about other things.
“It just bothers me that there are so many hateful people in the world,” she said. “We have people dying every day. I made the mistake of saying the N-word. I apologized several times. But you still want to come at me. This is something between my husband and I. but I’m here to take your abuse.”
