Jennie Nguyen Addresses Social Media Posts Day After ‘Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’ Firing

Jennie Nguyen renewed her apologies for the resurfacing of racist social media remarks made to her since-deleted Facebook account, but she claims she hasn’t altered her “political attitude” after being dismissed from The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.

During an Instagram Live on Wednesday, Nguyen reaffirmed sentiments from an earlier Instagram apology, stating she was aware she “hurt a lot of people” with her words in a series of postings condemning nationwide Black Lives Matter marches in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death.

Nguyen’s, which dubbed racial justice activists and anti-racism demonstrators “thugs,” contained anti-Black memes and pro-police talking points, and promoted “White Lives Matter” and racist disinformation and were first posted in 2020, reappeared this week.

Nguyen’s former castmates have already spoken out about the matter, with many criticizing Nguyen’s erased social media remarks. In a statement addressing the outrage to the channel’s handling of the scandal, Bravo anchor Andy Cohen called the tweets “extremely distressing, shocking, and nasty” on his SiriusXM show Radio Andy on Jan. 24.
