‘RHOSLC’s Jennie Nguyen Releases Statement Amid Fan Backlash

RHOSLC’s Jennie Nguyen has released a statement amid fan backlash to racist posts discovered on her alleged personal Facebook page.

Confirming that the posts and page do belong to her, the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star takes more time to explain why she posted why she did than take accountability.

“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,” she shared in a post on Instagram.

She continued, “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’s racist Facebook posts uncovered

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 what Jennie shared.

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.

RHOSLC star releases statement

After hours of silence, closing down her Facebook account, and limiting comments on her Instagram, Jennie released the statement via her social media and it is become clear immediately that this statement is not going to be enough to quell fan uproar.

A quick look at the #RHOSLC hashtag on Twitter reveals that most fans are not buying this statement as genuine and as we pointed out earlier, Bravo has fired other talent for similar offenses.

The news comes as Jennie’s RHOSLC co-star Mary Cosby is rumoured to be exiting the series. Bravo as a network has yet to comment on the controversy.

The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City airs Sundays on Bravo.
