Amid a wave of backlash surrounding past social media messages related to the Black Lives Matter movement, Jennie Nguyen has been fired from "The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City."
Bravo announced the firing on Jan. 25 in a statement reading, "Bravo has ceased filming with Jennie Nguyen and she will no longer be a cast member on 'The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.'"
"We recognize we failed to take appropriate action once her offensive social media posts were brought to our attention," the statement continued. "Moving forward, we will work to improve our processes to ensure we make better informed and more thoughtful casting decisions."
The writing seemed to be on the wall. Just hours before the firing, "Housewives" executive producer Andy Cohen called the reality TV star's comments "upsetting … and disgusting." On his SiriusXM show, "Radio Andy," he also hinted that a shakeup was coming.
"There are many serious discussions happening right now about everything — about everything," he said on Jan. 24. "And I can't address the situation right now, but it will be addressed very soon."
Back in 2020, Jennie posted multiple memes about BLM — one even joked about running over protesters with her car. (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 — 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."
