Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are under fire for their part in the Faith Stowers scandal. The “Vanderpump Rules” couple have lost endorsements due to accusations coming to light about their part in the rampant racism taking place at the restaurant and online. One of the couple’s biggest supporters, DIFF Eyewear has “suspended” their relationship with the reality TV couple. One fan noted that the eyeglasses company was also the first company to drop Stassi Schroeder when news broke that she had made insensitive and racist comments and actions towards Stowers.
According to the Instagram account @canceljaxtaylor the couple were dropped explicitly for their involvement and poor treatment of the only black cast member on the show at the time. Cartwright was accused of calling Stowers a “nappy-headed hoe” due to her Taylor cheating on her with Stowers. In a separate incident, Taylor accused Stowers of stealing his car and going AWOL from the army. The news came out in an exchange between a customer and a DIFF Eyewear representative. When the customer asked what they planned on doing about Taylor and Cartwright, the rep responded with the following comment. “Thank you so much for reaching out. Feedback like this is what keeps us learning and growing as a brand. We are investigating the situation and have suspended our partnership.
The statement went on to say, “As we move forward, we will continue to strive for a more diverse community of partners that uphold the mission of making a positive difference in this world. “Again, thank you for reaching out. Please feel free to continue to voice your concerns with us.” Both Taylor, 40 and wife Cartwright, 31 have been with the company since 2018 with Cartwright being featured in several ads. But if you look today, the couple wiped their social media accounts of any mention of DIFF.
As mentioned before, Taylor and Cartwright are not the first (or last) to lose endorsements after Stowers blew the whistle on several “Vanderpump Rules” cast members. Most talked about is Schroeder and Kristen Doute. Beginning with Schroeder, after she was silently but quickly dropped by DIFF Eyewear, she was soon dropped by several other companies. The 31-year-old soon to be mom had a bridal column in “Glamour” magazine that dropped her and then her PR firm threw her away. Next up, her publicist said goodbye and after Bravo dropped her, Radio.com removed her podcast from all their platforms and canceled her speaking tour.
Doute was fired from the show, she was also dropped from Fuse agency who published her book “He’s Making You Crazy: How to Get the Guy, Get Even, and Get Over It”. The 37-year-old’s net worth was about $1 million thanks to her allegedly being paid over $25,000 per episode. Thankfully, she is an entrepreneur and owns her own clothing brand but even that is at risk seeing as it is sales driven. Doute has not been a fan-favorite lately, she has been called out numerous times by co-stars for lying about her dating life. Plus, her outbursts and “rage texts” has really gotten to everyone.
