Kenya Moore, Joyce Giraud Go Off On Brandi Glanville Over Racist Comment

By  | 

Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kenya Moore is furious with Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville over some rather ignorant comments she made regarding Black people.

On Monday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the cast tried to get new co-star Joyce Giraud de Ohoven to get in the pool with them. When Joyce says she’s can’t swim, Glanville suggests it’s because she’s a “Black person!” When questioned about her ridiculous comments, Brandi then turned the conversation towards Black women’s hair. “It was a joke and my Black friends would have laughed crazy cause they don’t go in the pool because they will get there weave f*cked up.”

Those comments didn’t sit well with Joyce on the show, or Kenya who blasted Brandi on Twitter, calling her “ignorant.” Brandi has since apologized on Twitter, writing:

“I’m sorry for whomever I offended with my insensitive joke, I’m not racist. I’m just inappropriate 90 percent of the time!”

But Joyce didn’t buy the apology, tweeting that Brandi “needs to learn how to be sincere in her apology and stop playing the victim.” She then posted a lengthy blog slamming the blonde reality TV star for her racial insensitivity. You can read that in its entirety here.

    I don’t think that Brandi Glanville should get a free pass on her racist drunken stupidity comments. Our president is African American for Christ sakes. A drunk will always speak their sober mind. It’s highly offensive and goes to show that that old mindset still exist, she clearly proves that. I just don’t think that oh, I was just joking, my black friends know me. Nooooooo apparently your black friends don’t know you. I hope she looses any and all sponsors and she’s released from the show. I hope that people will demand more than a half ass apology. I guess maybe she can’t swim in the deep end either.

    What she said was not a racist remark. Racism is the idea that someone is inferior based on the color of their skin. Brandi’s comment was actually stereotyping which is an inappropriate assumption but not a racist remark.

    Think about this scenario…I go out with my sisters of color all the time and they are always begging me to get on the dance floor but I will not go then which prompts them to laugh with each other and say that its because I am a white girl and according to them, “white girls can not dance!” So, do I run screaming to everyone that they are racist? Should I feel as though I am a victim of racism? No, I take my ass out on the floor ans drop it like its hot. Which only makes my African American friends laugh harder and state, “see white girls can not dance for sh–!” Guess I am a victim of racism too then, huh?

    This is a racist remark when you consider the origin of this ignorant stereotypical comment. Whites banned black people ftom even coming near a pool and filled it with acid to prevent and hurt them once they entered it. So yes Brandi is a racist.
