‘Real Housewives’ star Jen Shah calls out Jennie Nguyen’s apology on Instagram, insists she’s ‘lying’
‘Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’ star Jen Shah calls out her ousted co-star Jennie Nguyen’s recent apology.
Nguyen appeared on Instagram Live on Wednesday to share her side of the story after being fired from the Bravo show.
The reality TV star claimed she couldn’t remember if she posted the redone posts herself on social media or if someone from her team did, but she assumed “the full responsibility” for what critics called “racist” posts. In her Instagram Live on Wednesday, Nguyen said she was not “racist”.
However, Shah claimed Nguyen was “lying” about not personally posting the rants on social media later Wednesday night.
‘REAL HOUSEWIVES’ STAR JENNIE NGUYEN SPEAK OUT FOR FIRST TIME SINCE PAST SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS SHOOTED
“She is lying and she has already admitted to her face that she posted every one of these disgusting messages HERSELF,” Shah wrote in a comment. “The fact that she brings a black man on her IG Live just confirms that she hasn’t learned and she’s not sorry.”
“This is performative slacktivism at its finest. (No Slacktivism was not a typo),” she added. “I hope Jennie can do the real work it takes to grow and change her racist and Islamophobic views.”
Bravo’s decision to fire Nguyen came after fans called out the reality TV star for the messages she shared on Facebook during the racial justice protests that took place in 2020. Nguyen advocated for the violence against protesters in several posts that summer, according to page 6.

Nguyen’s apology on Wednesday was not his first. The former ‘Real Housewives’ star previously apologized in a statement shared on Instagram shortly after being publicly called out.
“I want to acknowledge and apologize for my deleted Facebook posts from 2020 which resurfaced today. At the time I thought I was speaking out against violence, but I have since learned how much my words were offensive and hurtful,” she wrote.

“This is why I deactivated this account over a year ago and why I continue to try to learn more from perspectives different from mine. I regret these messages and am sincerely sorry for the pain they caused.”
