"Southern Charm" star Kathryn Dennis is fighting back after being caught in the midst of a racism scandal due to seemingly insulting monkey emoji she sent to a woman of color on social media.

In a lengthy statement shared on her Instagram Stories last night, May 17, Kathryn told her fans and followers that while she's been advised against speaking out, she simply can't keep her mouth shut anymore and is sick and tired of her name being dragged through the mud.
