Kim Menzies gave Ben Rathbun a warm hug and compliment when they first met on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days Tell All. However, Kim faced an odd and derogatory metaphor from Ben that she painted as a predator.
In a lengthy description, Ben likened Kim to a lion, with Usman being the gazelle that was their prey. Kim was visibly upset by the comparison when Ben was abruptly called in for an interview.
As soon as Ben left the room, Kim spoke the insult she took on Ben’s argument that women shouldn’t be the pursuers in relationships.
After receiving backlash on social media for his comments about Kim and his views in general, Ben apologized to Kim. Taking responsibility for his words, he mentioned that he and Kim had already discussed the matter privately.
Ben Rathbun apologized to Kim Menzies for calling her a predator
Ben took to his Instagram platform to apologize to Kim in his stories.
He wrote: “@itskimberly90 we spoke privately – but I also want to apologize publicly for my comments about Sunday’s reunion. They were condescending, misogynistic and hurtful.”
He continued, “You have shown me true kindness and grace, and I appreciate your support as I try to process all of the feedback I have received from my participation on the show.”
Ben concluded: “I have a lot to do with listening, self-reflecting, processing and changing – and probably making many more apologies – but I wanted to start with you. Kimberly, I appreciate and respect your friendship and appreciate your forgiveness.”
Ben’s hashtags at the end of his apology were “#TakingAccountability” and “#foregiveness”.
Ben Rathbun was recently arrested in connection with his previous DUI
Ben was arrested on March 15, 2022 against a DUI fee as of 2020.
Ben received a suspended sentence in the DUI case and failed to meet the conditions. He then missed a court date for violating probation, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Since his arrest Ben spoke up about the DUI circumstances.
He said he was drugged by a homeless couple he was helping out at a Red Roof Inn. He also said he missed his court date after the move and did not receive correspondence about it at his new address.
