Jennie Nguyen has been facing severe scrutiny after a series offensive Facebook posts went viral. The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star shared several memes and photos in 2020 with major racist themes. Jennie’s controversial sharing has now cost her a job.

The alleged posts took place at the height of the Black Lives Matter protest movement in the United States. Over a period of six months the posts were shared by Nguyen. RHOSLC fans were outraged and demanded she be fired.

Producer Andy Cohen said the posts were upsetting and disgusting. Bravo apparently agreed. The TV network announced the firing of Jennie Nguyen via an Instagram post.

“Bravo has ceased filming with Jennie Nguyen and she will no longer be a cast member of ‘The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.’ We recognize we failed to take appropriate action once her offensive social media posts were brought to our attention. Moving forward, we will work to improve our processes to ensure we make better informed and more thoughtful casting decisions.”

Earlier this month, Jennie criticized Mary Crosby for making racist comments about her. The irony likely not lost on Crosby. Mary did eventually apologize for the remark.

The drama will continue for The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. There is plenty to go around even without Jennie Nguyen. Bravo will try to do a better job of vetting the next new cast member.
