According to In Touch Weekly, in a now-unavailable Instagram Story, Ariela defended her decision to force her fiancé Biniyam Shibre to walk on foot in an episode. "90 Day Fiancé" star Ariela Weinberg is speaking up after the show’s fans criticized her for it. She acknowledged that there a lot of countries where cars do not have seats, including Biniyam’s home country of Ethiopia. But her outburst was really just out of concern for her newborn baby.

She told the story of their car getting rear-ended on that day. She was just worried that without seats and other safety gear, her child and other things in the automobile would just be like "projectile missiles." In the episode, the couple argued after they could not agree on how to get home after she was discharged from the hospital.

Since she just had a C-section, she told Biniyam to walk home with their baby in his arms. Fans were outraged by the sequence. Even with Biniyam's umbrella, they felt that the baby should not be exposed to the heat that day.
