Lisa Vanderpump, 59, responded to the Vanderpump Rules firing of Stassi Schroeder, 31, Kristen Doute, 37, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni on June 10, after the cast members were fired from the reality series due to the on racist behavior.
The British restaurateur took to Instagram on June 10, but since she did not mention explicitly the exits of her cast members from the show, it is very clear that she is talking about their actions and recent firings.
“Over the past two weeks, many things have been brought to my attention, of which I and many others were previously unaware. It was necessary for me to be quiet until now until decisions had been made. Now I can freely speak from the heart,” she started off in a long post shared with her followers.
The reaction from Lisa comes after Bravo, the network that the show is on, announced the firing news in a public statement shortly after reports made their way online on June 9.“Bravo and Evolution Media confirmed today that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules,” the statement read.
The decision to fire the four cast members came a week after Vanderpump Rules co-star Faith Stowers, 31, who is an African American, made public, during an Instagram Live chat, Stassi and Kristen reported her to the police in 2018 for a crime that Daily Mail reported she wasn’t a part of.
The channel also fired Max and Brett as their racist tweets in Jan resurfaced. Both men used the word “n***a” in the tweets when referring to African Americans.
