How is she going to explain herself this time?
Jennie Nguyen sought to defend herself on an Instagram Live on Wednesday acquired by PEOPLE, one day after being dismissed from “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” for previous racist social media statements.
As she addressed her previous nasty posts, the real housewife was joined by her friend Michael. “I just want you to understand my point of view and where I come from, and what’s going on during that time,” she began.
“I mean it’s an old post on my account, it’s in 2020. 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.”
“I know I hurt a lot of people. 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. And I just want to let you know that I am taking full responsibility and accountability for the things that were posted on my account, whether it was me or somebody else,” she added.
“It’s on my account and I’m big enough to understand that those posts are very sensitive and inappropriate, 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. I am proud to be able to say I have the freedom of speech to choose and to have an opinion. I respect your opinion, I respect your political stance. We are different.”
“But we need to respect each other and we need to understand that we live in this country, where we have the freedom to speak our mind, as well as we have a freedom to choose,” her statement continued. “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 of 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. And I want you to understand that. And whether I remember the posts in 2020, I don’t remember whether it’s on my account or not. We don’t remember what we ate yesterday, let alone two years ago. But like, again, I take full responsibility.”
The now-former real housewife was chastised when her Facebook posts from 2020 began to emerge on social media. During the Black Lives Matter marches, Jennie re-shared and published a plethora of photos and memes, which some saw as a hefty toll on Black Americans.
Bravo authorities then, stated on Tuesday that Jennie would no longer be filming on “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” after admitting that it neglected to interfere when some of her incendiary tweets surfaced on social media.
Jennie’s wrongdoings have been condemned by other housewives and later unfollowed her, as well as Andy Cohen, the talk show host and executive producer, who has called the posts “upsetting” and “disgusting.”

2020 isn't that long ago, we all had a fucked up year, black Americans have suffered. Cops aren't perfect. They need to do better. Saying this doesn't mean a person isn't supportive. Also address the domestic violence you inflict, that's scary. https://t.co/CjPt9eAmzk— DawnLaurie (Musgrave-Bonner) (@DawnLauri) January 27, 2022
How to “take responsibility” by Jennie Nguyen: just keep alluding to the fact that “maybe it was someone else”, “maybe I’m just forgetting” to create doubt and not actually apologize 😂😂— Rachel (@ImRachelSchmidt) January 27, 2022
Doesn't sound like she's learned a damn thing. These are not isolated incidents with cops and that doesn't mean that all cops are bad or people aren't supportive. The reality is there is a big problem and black Americans are dying. Being a republican isn't a crime, the cult??— DawnLaurie (Musgrave-Bonner) (@DawnLauri) January 27, 2022
