In light of the recent developments concerning Bravo fans and the kids of the Real Housewives getting bullied, the Speak On It star did not hold back. In her People interview, Kandi decried how celebrity kids endured online bullying. She revealed that Riley had previous online encounters with being bullied. The star mom explained:
"I despise it. It bothers me so much. Everybody already knows that Riley dealt with her weight issues growing up in the public eye. People would make comments on her body and say things about her personal look, and it really boils my blood."
The mom-of-three stated that it was terrible. Kandi noted how one could deal with bullies but would not want their child to experience it.

Kandi eventually linked her discourse on online trolling to fellow Bravo star Garcelle Beauvais' son's situation. For weeks, Beauvias's son, Jax, had to face hateful comments online. The OG housewife noted that she reached out to Garcelle. Kandi stated about the online issues:
"The people who watch our show and who are on our show, sometimes they take things too far, and it's not cool. It's crazy. This is a TV show at the end of the day."
The Bravo Network also addressed Jax's situation, stating how they were "shocked and appalled." The franchise also urged fans and viewers to refrain from targeting the Bravo stars and their families with "hateful rhetoric."
