Erika Jayne ‘Did Not Send Bots To Attack Jax’
On August 26, Jayne insisted on her Instagram story that she wasn’t responsible for the online harassment of her co-star’s 14-year-old boy, Jax. She shared that she had offered to meet him privately to apologize following the fiasco which happened on his mom’s birthday, where she drunkenly cursed at him.
“When I apologized to Garcelle for yelling at Jax, I also told her I would apologize to him in person,” Erika wrote on her Instagram Story via People. “But that did not make the edit. All the women saw me say this. “
She concluded, “I did not hire bots to attack Jax, and my offer to apologize to him, in person, still stands.” Her statement follows the controversial RHOBH scene where she told Jax to “get the f–k” out after he picked up a centerpiece at his mom’s party.
Diana Jenkins Has Also Been Accused Of Cyberbullying
In a similar fashion, Jenkins has also denied accusations of cyberbullying Beauvais’ son. “I have been accused of instigating the hateful and inexcusable cyberbullying of Garcelle’s son. Nothing could be further from the truth,” she wrote on Instagram.
“I have stood for human rights my whole life. To those who have been attacking my family and threatening our lives, you are also spreading hate and creating fear. There is no place for hate in this world. Please stop.”

Due to the intensity of the offensive comments at Jax, the Bravo channel issued a statement urging social followers to refrain from “harmful rhetoric.”
“We are shocked and appalled at the social comments directed at Garcelle’s son. We urge our viewers and social followers to refrain from targeting our cast and their families with harmful rhetoric.”
Garcelle Beauvais’ Son Issued A Statement Following The Attacks
“It is currently my first week of high school and, instead of enjoying it like most kids at my school, I have to deal with being attacked on social media,” the statement read. “I did not sign up for this show or have anything to do with the show’s drama. I just want to be a normal kid.”
“The constant support from everyone makes it much more tolerable. However, middle-aged women spamming me with racist and crude comments about my family is not what I expected for my first week of high school. Thank you for all the positive comments. It truly means a lot to me,” he concluded.
Lisa Rinna Showed Support
The reality star, whose children have also been subjected to a fair share of criticism, spoke up about the increasing hostility from fans towards kids of the cast. “We are doing a TV show. We try to entertain you. Why can’t you treat it like wrestling, for God’s sake? Love us, love to hate us, but leave the kids alone,” she shared on her Instagram Story.
“They didn’t sign up for this. What are [sic] doing?!” her kids — all of our kids should be off limits, so stop it now. Enough is enough.”
Beauvais also spoke up following the racist comments on her son’s Instagram, urging fans to leave him be. “I’m usually a very strong woman. I’ve been raised to be strong. My life has taught me to be strong, but when it comes to my kids!” she responded. “It hurts; it’s not OK. I’ve been in tears all night. It’s just a TV show. People, scream at your TV, throw something at your TV but leave our kids alone #RHOBH.”
