AceShowbiz - People may think that Jennie Nguyen will be fired from "The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City" amid her racist posts scandal. However, the reality TV star is still part of the Bravo show, according to a new report.
A source debunked online speculations that Jennie was let go after she faced backlash for her old Facebook posts criticizing Black Lives Matter movement. The source claimed to Entertainment Tonight that "no one has been fired from the Bravo show."
While Bravo doesn't seem to react to Jennie's scandal, her co-stars responded negatively to it. Seemingly distancing themselves from Jennie, Jen Shah, Meredith Marks and Lisa Barlow have unfollowed her on Instagram.
Prior to this, Meredith appeared to call Jennie's posts "vile." She also said in an Instagram statement that "there is no room in this world for hatred."
Jennie landed in hot water ater some offensive posts which she made on her Facebook page back in 2020 resurfaced online. One of them saw the Vietnamese-American reality TV star criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement, using phrases like "BLM Thugs" and "Violent Gangs."
She additionally posted about a theory, which has been debunked, that George Floyd assaulted a student in Spain. Another post was a cartoon which seemingly made light of the rash of protesters who were rammed by cars during the protests.
Jennie later issued an apology. "I want acknowledge and apologize for my deleted Facebook posts from 2020 that resurfaced today," Jennie began her statement on Wednesday, January 19. "At the time, I thought I was speaking out against violence, but I have since learned how offensive and hurtful my words were."
She went on to note that she "deactivated that account more than a year ago" and wanted to "continue to try to learn about perspectives different from my own." The mom of three added, "I regret those posts and am sincerely sorry for the pain they caused."
