During the episode, Lance agrees that Jax is one of the most ignorant people on the show. The comment is interesting because Lance is close with Jax and even officiated Jax’s wedding to Brittany.

Lance spoke about Jax’s ignorant comments saying, “he doesn’t get it. He doesn’t care.” The group brought up Jax’s comments on “90 Day Fiancé” star Ashley Smith’s husband Jay (who is black.) A couple of years ago, Jax wrote underneath Ashley’s photo, “wow. Your boyfriend’s nose is as big as his head.”

Lance said he spoke to Jax this week after the past comment about Ashley’s husband. Lance says Jax told him, “I don’t understand this big nose thing. He had a big nose. Jewish people have big noses too.” His cohosts explained the problems with depicting stereotypes of minorities. They said there was no excuse for Jax’s behavior.

“I do not see Bravo keeping him. This will keeping getting bigger and bigger,” Lance added. He agreed his behavior is going to cost him a lot of opportunities.

Back in May, Lance announced a handcrafted premium mixers company named Just Add X. Jax was his partner on the venture. On the podcast, he said Jax is “stepping down” from the company. Lance said there was no other choice because he can’t be involved or associated with that type of behavior.

As The Blast previously reported, earlier this month, Bravo fired Stassi and Kristen after Faith Stowers spoke out about the treatment she received while shooting “Vanderpump Rules.”
