NeNe Leakes is speaking out after learning that Bravo had fired a number of Vanderpump Rules stars, including Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni, for racist behavior they’ve displayed in the past.
On Tuesday, June 9, after Bravo officially confirmed that Stassi and Kristen would not be moving forward with the show as the cast prepares for the start of Season 9, The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member left a comment on the network’s official Instagram page. She then posted a potentially related rant on her own page.
“Well alrighty then! Now we have a few more questions to ask about in other areas where there’s a major difference. Should we talk privately or publicly?” NeNe wrote, via the Comments by Bravo Instagram account.
Following what appeared to be a threat against the network that made her famous, NeNe shared a separate post to her Instagram account in which she seemed to target Bravo yet again, along with other unnamed companies, who were making “large contributions toward social justice.” That post has since been removed.
Earlier this week amid the Black Lives Matter movement, Bravo announced on its Instagram page that — along with parent company NBC Universal — they had committed to a $100 million multi-year deal to aid in the fight for social justice and equality.
Continuing her post, NeNe said there are a lot of executives who sit in their offices and have no heart and no feelings.
“You sit there knowing a black persons hasn’t been treated equal but you don’t care! I just want you to know, [you’re] a piece of sh*t,” she wrote.
NeNe recently shared a photo of herself and her husband, Gregg Leakes, promoting the Black Lives Matter movement in Atlanta while holding up signs. She also promised that she supports and loves her community.

SWIPE: My hubby and i both was afraid to comprise our immune system considering his past cancer and the blood clots i had in my lungs! However Gregg really felt he wanted to get out and try for a few and let everyone know that no matter what, we stand loud and proud! Black Lives Matter and it has ALWAYS mattered. Thank you to everyone out here in the hot sun protesting daily! We love you and support you
As The Inquisitr previously reported, NeNe revealed during an interview with People last month that she was unsure about returning to The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast after feeling she was ganged up on and treated unfairly during the series’ 12th season earlier this year. As she explained at the time, she and the network and the production team have to come to some sort of compromise before she would agree to appear on the upcoming episodes.
NeNe then said she didn’t appreciate the way she was attacked at the reunion and told the publication she felt stressed out by how she was confronted by an “alliance” of housewives.
