“I want to acknowledge and apologize for my deleted Facebook posts from 2020 that resurfaced today,” Jennie wrote. “At the time, I thought I was speaking out against violence, but I have since learned how offensive and hurtful my words were.”
The RHOSLC star added that she was “sincerely sorry for the pain” the posts caused.
Jen Shah, however, dismissed what Jennie had said as a “disingenuous apology.”
As she wrote in a statement the next day, “Since my RHOSLC cast member has admitted that she made those horrible comments and posts, I must now stand up, on behalf of my husband and sons who are African American, to say that I am deeply offended by the racially insensitive posts and comments.”
Jen continued, “It was infuriating to see her like and repost comments that made a mockery of and showed complete apathy toward those killed marching to bring awareness to the deep-seeded [sic] social injustice issues that plague our country.”
