Now that Jennie Nguyen has tried to justify her racially insensitive past social media posts, the floodgates have opened. Jennie, who was fired from the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City over the posts, took to Instagram live to explain herself. Meanwhile, she even had someone who said she was her ex social media manager claim Jennie was hacked. But no one was buying it, especially not Jen Shah, who quickly slammed Jennie for her farce of a defense.
As reported by E! News, Jen jumped into the comments section of @therealityrundown’s reposting of Jennie’s live. Jen started by addressing Jennie’s claim that her social media team made the posts, not Jennie herself. Said Jennie on the live, “I just want you to understand, during that time I had a team of people that were helping me. Whether they post it, I post it, it doesn’t really matter at this point. For me, it’s on my account, and I take full responsibility and accountability for what was posted.”
Jen smelled BS and seethed, “She’s lying and she already admitted to my face she posted each and every one of those disgusting posts HERSELF.” Jen also referenced Jennie’s choice to sit next to someone she identified only as “Michael”, who is a Black man. Said Jen, “The fact she brings a Black man on her IG Live just confirms she has not learned nor is she sorry. This is Performative Slacktivism at its finest. (No Slacktivism wasn’t a typo). I hope Jennie can do the real work it will take to grow and change her racist, and islamophobic views.”
For his part, Michael said that he expected people to make comments like Jen’s. He explained, “Over time, I did have to educate her on the whole Black Lives Matter and everything like that because I’m a gay Black man, so I live it every day. Anybody that’s saying, ‘She paid him to be there,’ or, ‘She pulled the friend card,’ I see all your comments.”
Jen’s recent comment come as no surprise. The notoriously outspoken RHOSLC housewife was the first to issue a statement about Jennie’s offensive past. Jen wrote to her Instagram, “It was infuriating to see her like and repost comments that made a mockery of and showed complete apathy toward those killed marching to bring awareness to the deep-seeded [sic] social injustice issues that plague our country.”
