Andy Cohen is ripping "The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City" star Jennie Nguyen for her resurfaced comments that appeared to mock the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020.
"The posts were very upsetting … and disgusting," Andy, the executive producer of the Bravo franchise, said on his SiriusXM show, "Radio Andy," on Jan. 24.
Andy also addressed fans who were upset that he didn't address the scandal much on Sunday evening's "Watch What Happens Live," but he revealed on Monday that the Bravo show was pretaped before the scope of Jennie's posts were known.
"People were very upset about the lack of discussion on last night's episode relating to Jennie's disgusting and upsetting posts, and I've also seen all the tweets wanting to know what's being done about those posts," he said. "I just want to say, in case anyone doesn't realize it, that there are many serious discussions happening right now about everything — about everything. And I can't address the situation right now, but it will be addressed very soon, and thank you for your patience."
Back in 2020, Jennie posted memes and jokes about BLM. (She also reposted a meme that said those sympathetic to the BLM movement were "idiots.")
Page Six reported that nearly all of Jennie's "RHSLC" co-stars — including Heather Gay, Whitney Rose, Meredith Marks and Jen Shah — have publicly condemned her posts and unfollowed her on Instagram.
As her resurfaced posts made headlines last week, Jennie deleted her posts and apologized.
"I want to acknowledge and apologize for my deleted Facebook posts from 2020 that resurfaced today," she wrote via Instagram. "At the time, I thought I was speaking out against violence, but I have since learned how offensive and hurtful my words were."
"It's why I deactivated that account more than a year ago and why I continue to try to learn about perspectives different from my own," she continued. "I regret those posts and am sincerely sorry for the pain they caused."
