The announcement came after several social media posts were unearthed. Most of the posts took aim at the Black Lives Matter movement.
Jennie released the following statement on Instagram: “I will finally be speaking my truth tomorrow now that I am allowed to. I will be taking questions after! Thank you to who all supports me.”
Meanwhile, a production source told Page Six that “everyone is so relieved that Jennie was fired.”
The insider went on to say, “Absolutely nobody wanted to film with her or be associated with her after the social media drama… The entire cast is excited to see her go.”
After the posts were discovered, Jennie released an apology on Instagram. “I want to acknowledge and apologize for my deleted Facebook posts from 2020 that resurfaced today,” she said. “At the time, I thought I was speaking out against violence, but I have since learned how offensive and hurtful my words were.”
She then wrote, “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.”
Bravo announced her firing with the statement: “Bravo has ceased filming with Jennie Nguyen and she will no longer be a cast member on ‘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.”
