After days of silence and outcry from angry fans, Bravo has fired a Real Housewife of Salt Lake City over her racist social media posts.
Jennie Nguyen has been fired after just one season of #RHOSLC.
The news comes from the network that previously employed her which issued a statement confirming that she’s been booted from the housewives franchise. Bravo also noted that they “failed” to “take appropriate action” in a timely manner and pledged to do better.
“Bravo has ceased filming with Jennie Nguyen and she will no longer be a cast member of ‘The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’ reads an official statement from Bravo.
“We recognize we failed to take appropriate action once her offensive social media posts were brought to our attention. Moving forward, we will work to improve our processes to ensure we make better informed and more thoughtful casting decisions.”
The news comes after Bravo boss/ Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen called Nguyen’s comments “disgusting” and said that “multiple talks were happening.”
As previously reported Nguyen trended on Twitter last week after racist Facebook posts she shared in 2020 resurfaced. In them, she made several disparaging and racist remarks about the Black Lives Matter movement “thugs” and “Black-on-Black” crime. At least one post also “joked” about running over “rioters” and another from Nguyen mocked people who want an apology or reparations for slavery.
