‘Real Housewives’ star apologizes after being fired for social media posts criticizing BLM

Breitbart reported last week that Bravo had fired Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jennie Nguyen for sharing social media posts critical of the Black Lives Matter movement. 

“Bravo has ceased filming with Jennie Nguyen and she will no longer be a cast member of ‘The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City,’” the network said in a statement.

“We recognize we failed to take appropriate action once her offensive social media posts were brought to our attention,” Bravo added.

TV star condemned rioting

In its statement, Bravo also said the network “will work to improve our processes to ensure we make better informed and more thoughtful casting decisions.”

Page Six published screenshots of several memes that Nguyen shared, including one that read, “If you follow the officers [sic] orders, you won’t get shot.”

Another post reportedly said, “I’m sick of people saying cops need more training. You had 18 years to teach your kids it’s wrong to loot, steal, set buildings a blaze, block traffic, laser people’s eyes, overturn cars, destroy buildings and attack citizens. Who failed who?”

According to Breitbart, Nguyen offered an apology on an Instagram Live stream following her termination.

“I’m very proud to be a Republican”

“I want you to understand that my political stance, I still support that,” the reality television star said. “I’m very proud to be a Republican. I am proud to be able to say I have the freedom of speech, too, and to have an opinion.”

However, she added, “I just want you to understand that, during that time, I had a team of people that [were] helping me.”

“Whether they posted [or] I posted, it doesn’t really matter at this point — it’s on my account and I take full responsibility and accountability for what was posted,” she said.

“I know I hurt a lot of people,” Nguyen continued, according to Breitbart. “My viewpoint during that time in 2020 was emotional and it brings back a lot of memories during that time when we went through such a tragic, terrible year.”

Prior to being fired, the star released a statement over Instagram saying, “I want to acknowledge and apologize for my deleted Facebook posts from 2020 that resurfaced today.”
