A cast member of “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City,” a Bravo reality TV show that initially premiered in early 2020, has been permanently booted from the show for the supposed crime of dissenting against the violent Black Lives Matter movement.
During the devastating BLM riots of 2020 that demolished hundreds of businesses and left dozens dead, now-booted contestant Jennie Nguyen reposted a number of decidedly conservative Facebook social media posts condemning the violence.
In the posts, the original writers accurately described the violent rioters as “BLM Thugs” and “Violent Gangs,” called out black-on-black violence and defended the police.
“I’m sick of people saying cops need more training. You had 18 years to teach your kid it’s wrong to loot, steal, set buildings a blaze, block traffic, laser people’s eyes, overturn cars, destroy buildings and attack citizens. Who failed who?” one post read.
Below is a screenshot of the since-deleted repost:
“Hundreds of blacks shot and many killed (including children) by other blacks every week. Over a thousand Officers violently injured, some permanently, by rioters. Anarchists rioting 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,” another post read.
Additional reposts mocked the violent rioters who were justifiably hit by motorists, praised the “Rooftop Koreans” standing up to the rioters, laughed over BLM rioters being chased out of a Texas town and drew attention to the business owners who were harassed and assaulted by the violent extremists.
The posts all echoed the overwhelming conservative consensus on the violent riots. But the one thing you’re not allowed to be in Hollywood is conservative.
And so after Nguyen’s since-deleted posts went viral last week, fans of the TV show began demanding that she be fired. Then on Tuesday of this week, Bravo announced that she’s been canned.
“Bravo has ceased filming with Jennie Nguyen and she will no longer be a cast member on ‘The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City,'” the network said in a statement.
“We recognize we failed to take appropriate action once her offensive social media posts were brought to our attention. Moving forward, we will work to improve our processes to ensure we make better informed and more thoughtful casting decisions.”

In response, the show’s rabidly left-wing fans celebrated and fantasized over her gruesome death, though they also chided Bravo for not having done enough previously to promote so-called “diversity” and “inclusion.”

Let them undergo diversity training just like Porsche had to do anger management. I think it should be a show honestly. If they are fired all they will do is run to Parler and get their racism validated instead of changing. 2/2 #Jennie #Ramona

Emphasis in “we failed to take appropriate action once her offensive social media posts were brought to our attention” but at least, better late than never.

I hope when contracts are renewed there are clear clauses to make this type of removal action easier. There have been several problematic housewives and #Bravo needs to catch up with the times and do better.

Thank you Bravo! 👏👏👏 and i think it would benefit bravo to have a team to work specifically on diversity and inclusion and vetting so you do not get into this position. Heading the Team can be Richie Skye

Nguyen’s supporters meanwhile say that she did nothing wrong except for one thing.
As noted by prominent conservative commentator and former cop Brandon Tatum, “Her only problem is that she apologized.”
In an Instagram post posted amid the initial uproar last week, she completely bent her knee to the mob.
“I want to acknowledge and apologize for my deleted Facebook posts from 2020 that resurfaced today. At the time, I thought I was speaking out against violence, but I have since learned how offensive and hurtful my words were,” she wrote.
“It’s why I deactivated that account more than a year ago and why I continue to try to learn about perspectives different from my own. I regret those posts and am sincerely sorry for the pain they caused.”

The irony, critics say, is that the left-wing zealots hounding her about the need to be more aware of different perspectives have displayed zero concern about the perspectives of all the people who were victimized by BLM rioters in 2020:
“People did this for no reason”

Following her termination this week, Nguyen posted a live-stream video to Instagram in an attempt to defend herself, as reported by E!
“I take full responsibility and accountability for what was posted. I know my viewpoint during that time in 2020 was emotional, and it brings back a lot of memories during that time when we went through such a tragic, terrible year,” she said.
“I’m big enough to understand that those posts are very insensitive to the point where it is disgusting, but I want you to understand that my political stance, I still support that. I am very proud to be a Republican.”
The problem, critics have noted, is that the moment she apologized to the mob, she stopped being a proud Republican. Because a Republican truly proud of her or her beliefs would never bow to the mob for simply stating the truth …
