Brandi Glanville’s racist comment on a recent episode of her TV show is causing a stir.
If you caught the latest installment of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, then you’re already well aware of why Glanville is on the hot seat yet again. For those who aren’t up-to-date on the TV personality’s shenanigans, then we’ll bring you up to speed.
Here’s what happened on the most recent episode: While the ladies were on vacation in Palm Springs, Brandi Glanville tried her best to coax Joyce Giraud into the pool. When Giraud revealed that she couldn’t swim, Glanville decided to draw a very stereotypical conclusion about her co-star.
“You’re a black person,” Glanville casually observed.
“Yes, I’m black. What’s your problem? Puerto Ricans are black, they’re Indian and they’re Spanish. So I am a mix of three cultures and I’m very proud to represent all three,” Giraud shot back.
Since it was obvious that some people could possibly find the remark offensive, Brandi Glanville addressed the comment during one of the show’s testimonials. In her opinion, she was just having a laugh with one of his pals.
“It was a joke, and my black friends would have laughed crazy because they don’t go in the pool because they will get their weaves [messed] up,” she explained.
To do a bit more damage control about the questionable remark, Glanville addressed the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills blunder on her official Twitter page. Although the comment was clearly in bad taste, the reality TV star insists that she’s not a racist person.
“I’m sorry for whomever I offended with my insensitive joke, I’m not racist I’m just inappropriate 90 percent of the time!” Glanville tweeted in her own defense.
Radar Online reports that Joyce Giraud addressed Brandi Glanville’s comment during a recent appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. In her opinion, Glanville shouldn’t try to put every single black person in the same box.
“My great grandmother was black. So yes, I’m proud to say I’m a mix and very proud of my African lineage as well! But even if I didn’t have it in my blood I would still not tolerate her racial remarks. She stereotypes and labels because I tell her I can’t swim. She was simply disrespectful!” Giraud explained.
