Candiace Dillard from Bravo’s Real Housewives of Potomac is facing backlash after past homophobic tweets were uncovered.
Twitter account @freeishmedia first uncovered the tweets and conveniently packaged them in a Twitter thread.
Among some of the tweets are the following:
- “Queenie gay men irk me.”
- “I’m personally turned off by men who r too into fashion. It’s a fine line. When u do too much, I’m disgusted. Makes me think ‘gay’.”
- “I think my officemate might be a little gay. He does some strange things…..makes me raise an eyebrow here and there.”
- When apparently live tweeting The Real Housewives of Atlanta a few years ago, she posted: “Phaedra’s husband is so AWKWARD. ughhhhh. I think he might be a little gay too.”
The tweets were posted on Candiace’s official Twitter account starting back in 2010.
Some RHOP fans may say this is nothing new for Candiace, as she was shown making accusations about Ashley Darby’s marriage and her husband’s sexuality on previous seasons of the show.
The Real Housewives of Potomac star Candiace Dillard is facing backlash from fans after past homophobic tweets were uncovered.
The tweets that Candiace posted aren’t funny and are incredibly insulting, to say the least.
Considering that she keeps bringing up the fact that she previously worked under President Obama and has appeared to be pretty liberal-minded on the show, it’s surprising to hear that she tweeted these things in the past and appears to have negative feelings towards the LGBTQ+ community. (Candiace went on to work for Obama after she had posted the tweets during 2010-2011.)
It is a well-known fact that The Real Housewives franchise has been made popular, in part, by the gay community and that they make up a large portion of today’s fanbase and viewership.
Plus, Andy Cohen, who is both Candiace’s boss and the executive producer of the entire franchise, is an openly gay man which makes these past homophobic tweets even more shocking and disappointing.
The Real Housewives of Potomac airs Sundays on Bravo and Slice.
