The Queen of controversy is at it again!
Stassi Schroeder has once again put her foot in her mouth after captioning an Instagram story photo, “Nazi Chic.”
To make matters worse, Stassi also sported an SS keychain on her purse that was visible in the photo. If you don’t know the significance, well shame on you, and maybe go back to 9th-grade history.
While SS is Stassi’s initials, it’s also the name of the Nazi paramilitary group that was directly responsible for the mass-murder of millions of Jews, Poles, and other victims of the Holocaust. So chic, right? NOT!
The Vanderpump Rules star quickly took down the photo and replaced it with an “appropriate redo” where she referred to herself as “#Elsa-Indiana Jones chic,” but the damage was already done.
Fans quickly, and rightfully, slammed the reality TV star and called for her to be fired from Vanderpump Rules by using the hashtag #DumpStassi.
Stassi attempted to clear the air by posting a meme to Twitter that read “me trying to make a joke that won’t offend anyone in 2017,” and showed a man trying to maneuver through a laser field.
However, fans weren’t buying her attempt at an apology.
“Girl, no. So sorry to hear you slept through 2017. Your joke wasn’t funny, and if you had attempted to be clever you’d have realized Nazis aren’t either,” one user replied.
“You really need a lesson in humility. We’ll just wait here until backlash/financial repercussions cause you to come out with another phony apology. -a
#metoo jew who used to be a fan cc: @Bravotv @Andy @LisaVanderpump,” another tweeted.
This is the second major controversy for Stassi in the last few months. Back in November Stassi made an entire podcast bashing the #metoo movement and claiming that it’s “easy” to avoid being sexually harassed and assaulted. Read the full transcript of the now deleted podcast here.
No word on if this latest controversy will have any repercussions for the VPR star but at the least, Andy Cohen needs to call Stassi out at the reunion and give her a major scolding. And Stassi, remember that Nazi’s are NEVER chic.
I’ve always been a BIG fan of Stassi – she’s been my girl since day one of Vanderpump Rules, but for me, she just crossed the line big time. If you don’t know, I’m Polish, practically 100%, and I have family members who survived the Holocaust. My family is connected to the atrocities of WWII and the Holocaust in multiple ways so for me; it’s not a joking matter. Nothing relating to Nazi’s or mass extermination of human beings should ever be considered chic or a punchline for a not so funny joke. Maybe Stassi should take some comedy lessons if she wants to honestly be funny cause her latest jokes aren’t hitting the mark at all and make her look like an uneducated, privileged fool.
Thoughts on Stassi’s latest controversy? Was Stassi’s “Nazi Chic” comment out of line? Should Stassi be fired from VPR? Does Stassi need to stop trying to be funny?
