The very recent past is coming back to haunt the newest Salt Lake City Housewife.
Jennie Nguyen faces backlash after several controversial and offensive social media posts from 2020 came to light this week.
The posts, all from 2020, cover a bevy of controversial topics, including promoting “white lives matter” while condemning George Floyd and Black Lives Matter protests.
She also posted and reposted cartoons and images using phrases like “BLM Thugs” and “Violent Gangs.”
Check out some of Jennie’s posts below.
Within hours Jennie’s posts spread across social media like wildfire. The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star issued a public statement after her controversial Facebook posts resurfaced.
“I want to acknowledge and apologize for my deleted Facebook posts from 2020 that resurfaced today. 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. I regret those posts and am sincerely sorry for the pain they caused,” Jennie wrote in a statement.
While Jennie claims she deleted her Facebook more than a year ago, however, several outlets, including Page Six and Bravo By Betches, revealed that Jennie’s Facebook is still active as of Wednesday, January 19.
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
