RHOSLC star Jennie Nguyen accused of posting racist and anti-vaxx memes as fans call for her to be FIRED from the Bravo show:
The 44-year-old “Housewife” Nguyen allegedly posted many controversial memes, who is Vietnamese American.
The various memes carry a theme of depicting the Black Lives Matter protestors in a negative light, as well as encouraging violence against the movement itself.
One meme shared on Sept. 2 “Hundreds of blacks shot and many killed (including children) by other blacks every week. Over a thousand Officers were violently injured, some permanently, by rioters. Anarchists riot in major cities every night, which has caused billions of dollars of destruction to private and public property. And you still think Police Officers are the problem. You are an idiot.”
One cartoon image shows two cartoon characters — one an elderly white woman and the other a middle-aged white male — talking, the old lady bragging about how many ‘rioters’ she has hit with her car.
“No, that’s not my family, that’s how many rioters I’ve hit!” the cartooned white woman says.
Another shows a photo of Ken Jeong’s character from “Community” cupping his hands to yell, with a caption that reads,
“If you follow the officers [sic] orders, you won’t get shot.” The post was allegedly shared by Nguyen on Aug. 27.
Nguyen also shared a since debunked post that spread a false narrative about George Floyd assaulting a student in Spain.
Screenshots first posted by All About The Tea show Nguyen sharing the disturbing images to her social media, including one that doubted George Floyd was killed as a result of police brutality.
One post, allegedly shared by the 44-year-old “Housewife” in September 2020, reads,
“I’m sick of people saying cops need more training. You had 18 years to teach your kids it’s wrong to loot, steal, set buildings ablaze, block traffic, laser people’s eyes, overturn cars, destroy buildings and attack citizens. Who failed who?”
Other alleged posts shared by Nguyen depict anti-vaxx beliefs and conspiracy theories that Biden stole the election.
One meme shows Former President Donald Trump shaking hands with a doctor, along with the text: ‘Only make the vaccine in suppository form. I want the democrats to shove it up to their a***s.’
‘RHOSLC’ star Jennie Nguyen faces backlash for controversial posts:
Nguyen’s public apology comes shortly after she expressed her frustration with fellow RHOSLC cast member Mary Cosby for saying that she loved her “slanted eyes” during the show’s Jan. 2 episode.
“It is insulting to our Asian culture to call me that, and it comes across as racist,” Nguyen said in a confessional.
“And it’s shocking cause Mary should be more educated and understand it’s not appropriate to say stuff like that.”
Later in the episode, Nguyen called Cosby out while the housewives were attending a party together, telling the church leader,
“You’re mature, take some responsibility. Right now, there is a lot of Asian hate. Take responsibility for your words.”
Nguyen’s alleged resurfaced posts follow her previously calling out her co-star Mary M. Cosby for being racist.
During a recent episode, Cosby told Nguyen that she has “nice slanted eyes.” She went on to confront Cosby, and while many of the ladies had her back, Cosby didn’t step down and their feud has since escalated.
Cosby has since doubled down that her comment was a sincere compliment and said she will “never” apologize to Nguyen.
