‘RHOSLC’s Jennie Nguyen Blames Social Media Team For Offensive Facebook Posts — Watch

Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jennie Nguyen, 44, has spoken out after she was fired from the hit Bravo series for controversial Facebook posts from 2020. In an Instagram Live video, Jennie placed blame on a “team of people” helping her with social media for sharing the offensive posts to a Facebook page. “I just want you to understand that, during that time, I had a team of people helping me. Whether they posted [or] I posted, it doesn’t really matter at this point,” she said on Wednesday, January 26, alongside her Black friend Michael.

“For me, it’s on my account and I take full responsibility and accountability for what was posted,” she also said. “I know I hurt a lot of people. 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 explained, calling the posts “disgusting.”

She then defended her political stance as a Republican. “I want you to understand that my political stance, I still support that. I’m very proud to be a Republican. I am proud to be able to say I have the freedom of speech, too, and to have an opinion,” she added. “I don’t tolerate violence but I do support my law enforcement. I know with every profession, there’s good and there’s bad. I don’t support the bad. I don’t support the brutality with black people or with any race…but I do support my law enforcement, but that doesn’t make me racist. To support my political stance, that does not make me a racist. I want you to understand that.”
