The online attacks against Garcelle Beauvais‘ 14-year-old son, Jax Nilon, have reached a sick new level.
As the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member’s young boy releases a statement, slamming the “racist” messages he’s received from “middle-aged women” as he prepares to start school, the reported use of bots has raised questions about a potentially orchestrated attack on Jax.
“I ran quite a few of these accounts through BeenVerified and they’re all bots,” a man named Chadwick revealed on Twitter on August 23.
“No traceable online history. I’m not going to assume who sent them, but it’s very interesting timing considering last weekend’s posts,” he continued, potentially referencing posts shared by Diana Jenkins days ago, which accused Garcelle of “bullying” and ridiculing her for a text message she sent about her miscarriage.
“Again, Housewives fans cross the line and go after Garcelle’s youngest on his IG account. Pathetic losers,” Twitter page Love Andy C wrote.

In addition to the many messages seen above that mentioned Diana, Jax was also met with an absolutely disgraceful message from someone else. This person shockingly referenced George Floyd, who died at the hands of a police officer who knelt on his neck as he begged for his life in 2021, prompting the Black Lives Matter movement and a general uprising of demands for equality.
“You’d have your neck kneeled on if it weren’t for your white daddy. Tell your mom to leave Diana alone or you’ll deal with us,” the person warned.
And in the caption of his Instagram Story, Jax said the woman had gone “too far at this point.”
Following Jax’s posting of the disturbing comment, Garcelle shared a message from him on her own Story.
It read, “Well I’d like to start off by saying that I am still a kid and wish to not be viewed as a fully matured adult, because I am not one. It is currently my first week of high school and, instead of enjoying it like most kids at my school, I have to deal with being attacked on social media. I did not sign up for this show, nor do I have anything to do with the show’s drama. I just want to be a normal kid. The purpose of my Instagram account is not for publicity nor the public’s gaze, but to be seen by my peers as just another kid. I really want to avoid going private, but I just have to at this point. The constant support from everyone makes it much more tolerable. However, middle-aged women spamming me with racist and crude comments about my family is not what I expected my first week of high school. Thank you for all the private comments. It truly means a lot to me.”
Amid the backlash against RHOBH viewers, Kyle Richards spoke out with a message on her page.
“All right let’s just get one thing straight picking on children of the Housewives is not okay. It is never okay to attack a child. Is your life that actually empty? If it is seek help, shame on you,” her message stated.
Editor’s Note– I’m very sickened and disturbed by this. This is a CHILD that is being harassed and threatened online. I hope the authorities get involved so whoever is behind this is charged and prosecuted. It might also be a good idea for Bravo to do their own investigation as to eliminate anyone associated with the show – RB.
This is beyond sickening and disturbing. It's time for @GarcelleB to get the cops and FBI involved to investigate. Whether it is unhinged fans or someone paying for bots, they need to be charged and prosecuted ASAP. Harassment/Threats to a minor is illegal. #RHOBH https://t.co/ie2ZV4bvEG
