FOUR cast members were fired from Vanderpump Rules after backlash for the stars’ racist accusations on social media.
The Bravo show airs on September 28, amidst a stream of firings for bad behavior that included Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, Kristen Doute, and Stassi Schroeder.
Why was Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright fired?
Taylor, whose real name is Jason Michael Cauchi, is married to Cartwright, and the couple was fired in December 2020 after Taylor accused former cast member, Faith Stowers of committing a crime.
In a resurfaced Tweet from December 4, 2017, Taylor said:
“[Stowers is] wanted by the police for grand theft auto and ‘awol’ from military, bad idea to be on a reality show dude. Someone’s going to jail.”
Stowers did not have a connection to the crime, and fans voiced their outrage, demanding Taylor be fired from the show.
In an Instagram post on December 4, 2020, Cartwright said:
“The last 5 years on Vanderpump Rules have been some of the most challenging, rewarding and fulfilling years of my life. Although this is difficult to share, Jax and I will not be returning for another season of Vanderpump Rules. We are excited to take this time to focus on our growing family and share with you our new endeavors.”
The couple welcomed son Cruz Michael Cauchi in April 2021.
Why was Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder fired?
The co-cast mates, Doute and Schroeder, were fired in June 2020 for calling the police to make a false claim on Faith Stowers.
The claim came in response to a Daily Mail article about a Black woman who allegedly was drugging and robbing men in Hollywood nightclubs.
"Hey tweeties, doesn't this ex #pumprules thief look familiar? someone put her on MTV & gave her a platform for press. I didn't wanna go there but I'm going there," Kristen Doute said in her post.
The post can no longer be found on Twitter.
Schroeder and Doute said in June 2020, they are trying to turn a new leaf since they accused Stowers of the crime, and they said they didn’t understand at the time that it was a racist issue.
Both women expressed remorse and Schroeder said she does “not expect forgiveness,” and Doute said she didn’t understand “how dangerous [her] actions could have been to [Faith]."
