Bravo Breaks Silence on Racist Attack Against 'RHOBH' Star Garcelle Beauvais' Teen Son Jax

The network issues a statement slamming 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' fans who are sending 'racist and crude comments' to Garcelle's 14-year-old son Jax on social media.

AceShowbiz - Bravo has responded to "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" fans targeting Garcelle Beauvais' teen son Jax on social media. On Wednesday, August 24, the network issued a statement, condemning the racist attack toward the 14-year-old.

"We are shocked and appalled at the social comments directed at Garcelle's son," the statement read. "We urge our viewers and social followers alike to refrain from targeting our cast and their families with harmful rhetoric."

The statement arrived after Garcelle slammed "disgusting" "RHOBH" fans who were attacking Garcelle's teenage son. "I'm usually a very strong woman," Garcelle wrote in a note shared on Instagram on Tuesday. "I've been raised to be strong. My life has taught me to be strong but when it comes to my kids! It hurts. It's not OK."

"The Real" co-host went on to say, "I've been in tears all night. It's just a TV show people. Scream at your TV throw something at your TV but leave our kids alone #RHOBH. This has to stop!! They're just kids !!!!"

The 55-year-old reality TV star later shared a statement from Jax on her Instagram Story. "From Jax … Well I'd like to start off by saying I am still a kid and wish to not be viewed as a fully matured adult, because I am not one," he said in the statement. "It is currently my first week of high school and, instead of enjoying it like most kids at my school, I have to deal with being attacked on social media."

The teenager also added that he "did not sign for this show, nor do I have anything to do with the show's drama." He pleaded, "I just want to be a normal kid," adding that his Instagram account is not for "publicity or the public's gaze but to be seen" by his peers as a regular kid.

While "the constant support from everyone makes it much more tolerable," Jax noted, "Middle aged women spamming me with racist and crude comments about my family is not what I expected for my first week of high school." He concluded, "Thank you for all the positive comments. It truly means a lot to me."

Garcelle's "RHOBH" co-stars also spoke out about the matter. In an Instagram Story post, Lisa Rinna demanded fans to "leave the kids alone!" She added, "They didn't sign up for this. What are [sic] doing?! The kids-all of our kids should be off limit so stop it now. Enough is enough." Meanwhile, Kyle Richards shared a quote that read, "All right. Let's just get one thing straight. Picking on children of the Housewives is not okay. It is never okay to attack a child. Is your life that actually empty? If it is seek help. Shame on you."
