Several members of the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast are speaking out after costar Jennie Nguyen’s controversial social media posts come to light.
Meredith Marks was the first to react to Jennie’s 2020 social media posts which included a bevy of controversial topics, including promoting “white lives matter” while condemning George Floyd and Black Lives Matter protests.
“Vile,” Meredith wrote on Twitter.
A Bravo fan quickly called Meredith out for not saying more; however, Meredith clarified that she’s “not allowed” to say more “[right now].”
She adds: “I have a lot more to say about many things. And I will.”
Lisa Barlow then reassured RHOSLC fans that Jennie’s social media posts would “get addressed.”
When fans questioned when it would be addressed as the RHOSLC season 2 reunion already filmed and the cast is currently filming season 3, Lisa said, “Before then.”
Finally, Jen Shah shared her thoughts on Jennie’s posts in a lengthy statement on Instagram.
“I RARELY BELIEVE WHAT I SEE OR HEAR ONLINE. I KNOW FIRSTHAND WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO BE JUDGED WITHOUT EVIDENCE OR AN ADMISSION OF GUILT,” Jen wrote.
“HOWEVER, SINCE MY RHOSLC CAST MEMBER HAS ADMITTED THAT SHE MADE THOSE HORRIBLE COMMENTS AND POSTS, I MUST NOW STAND UP, ON BEHALF OF MY HUSBAND AND SONS WHO ARE AFRICAN AMERICAN, TO SAY THAT I AM DEEPLY OFFENDED BY THE RACIALLY INSENSITIVE POSTS AND COMMENTS,” she continued. “IT WAS INFURIATING TO SEE HER LIKE AND REPOST COMMENTS THAT MADE A MOCKERY OF AND SHOWED COMPLETE APATHY TOWARD THOSE KILLED MARCHING TO BRING AWARENESS TO THE DEEP-SEEDED SOCIAL JUSTICE ISSUES THAT PLACE OUR COUNTRY.”
“I AM EQUALLY DISAPPOINTED BY THE DISINGENUOUS APOLOGY THAT WAS ISSUED. NEEDLESS TO SAY, WE HAVE SOME REAL SH*T TO TALK ABOUT.”
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
