This became extremely obvious yesterday when Ramona, who also has a teenage daughter, re-tweeted a youtube video of Countess Luann’s 16-year-old daughter Victoria de Lesseps rolling up a joint and using the N-word.
Ramona deleted the tweet moments later, perhaps due to some of the backlash she received from fans on twitter or maybe someone advised her to. That reason is unclear but the damage was already done as news of the video quickly spread.
Though the youtube video has been taken down as of this morning, I personally viewed the entire 5 minute clip yesterday evening and Victoria appeared to be very high as she giggled and laughed her way through the 5 minute skype conversation with a female friend.
The shocking part of the video came in at about 4 minute mark when Victoria began to roll up what appeared to be a joint. Things then took a turn for the worst when Victoria uttered the N-word close to the 5-minute mark. In Victoria’s defense, she didn’t appear to be using the word as a racial slur. Though still ignorant, she seemed to be using it as a means to refer to her friend aka buddy, pal etc.
Victoria was also aware that her skype conversation was being recorded as she seemed excited at the thought of viewing the video in school the next day, implying she couldn’t wait to see her actions with a sober clear mind. No word on how the video made it’s way to youtube.
The NyMag.com also published a story about this and they were able to get a screen shot of Ramona’s re-tweet before she deleted it. That is below.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON VICTORIA’S ACTIONS IN THE VIDEO? SHOULD RAMONA HAVE RE-TWEETED IT?
