‘RHOSLC’s Jennie Nguyen Facing Backlash After Racist Facebook Posts Discovered

RHOSLC’s Jennie Nguyen is facing backlash from the Bravo community after racist posts were allegedly discovered on her personal Facebook page.

Early this morning (January 19), news started circling on social media that Jennie had some pretty inappropriate Facebook posts floating around and in short, the screenshots are shocking.

Warning: The posts are extremely disturbing and inappropriate. Please continue reading with that in mind.

Scroll through the Instagram post below to see the posts.

Jennie seems to have an infatuation with the protests against police brutality throughout the last year, as many of the posts seem to focus around that. “If you still think police officers are the problem, you are an idiot,” reads one meme shared by the reality star that compared protestors to looters.

In another, The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star shared a debunked article that claimed George Floyd, whose tragic murder at the hands of a police officer kicked off last year’s Black Lives Matter movement, had died of a drug overdose. “If you follow the officers orders, you won’t get shot,” reads another of Jennie’s memes.

While some may try to say the screenshots are faked, there is a live Facebook link that takes you directly to Jennie’s page where you can see one of the offending memes for yourself.

The news comes as Jennie’s RHOSLC co-star Mary Cosby is rumoured to be exiting the series after her own racist and inappropriate comments were aired on recent episodes and as a network, this isn’t the first time Bravo has dealt with racist social media posts.

In recent years, the network has fired LeeAnne Locken from The Real Housewives of Dallas after she made racist comments towards a co-star in the Season 4 finale, Peter Hunziker was ousted from Below Deck Mediterranean for sharing a racist meme to his Instagram story, and almost the entire Vanderpump Rules cast was let go for their own racist past. So far, Bravo has yet to release a statement to the social media backlash.

This is a developing story and we’ll keep you posted.


UPDATE 1/19 8:30pm: Jennie Nguyen has released a statement to her social media channels in response to the backlash.
