Kyle Richards is catching major backlash for a throwback that many are calling “tone-deaf” in light of the world today. “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star is being slammed after posting a photo to Instagram on Wednesday, June 17, that some trolls are picking apart amid Coronavirus and the Black Lives Matter movement. Showcasing herself in Greece, the 51-year-old posed in a bikini while adding a controversial caption that has many fans up in arms.
Smiling sweetly while sporting her crochet white one-piece, Kyle Richards showed off her gorgeous legs while soaking up the sunshine. “I miss escaping from reality…” she wrote while adding the hashtags, “Greece,” and “RHOBH.” While several fans praised her for the bikini-clad throwback, others used this as an opportunity to find fault and lashed out at the “RHOBH” star. Several warned her that she needs to be careful of what she posts considering Bravo has been on a firing frenzy lately.
But Kyle Richards isn’t taking the trolls lightly and used her platform to clap back at a few comments. When someone wrote, “Uh tone deaf,” the star replied, “no. Not at all.” Not everyone agreed with Kyle’s response.
“When someone as wealthy and privileged as yourself posts, at a time like this, that you want to escape reality… it really just misses the mark. I hope you’ll consider this,” someone explained. “Big time tone deaf. REALITY hit her precious world and she now needs an escape,” another person added.
“For most of us it is as not many of us can afford designer clothes, fancy cars etc In our world it’s a struggle most weeks to pay our bills plus put food on the table and we don’t have that luxury of escaping on holidays . So yes your life is a permanent escape from reality,” fired back another. “Your whole life is an escape from reality!” shared a fourth. Many warned her that she needs to be on her best behavior.
“You should think before you post if you want to keep your job,” one troll advised Kyle Richards. “Tone deaf post isn’t a good idea right now,” added another. As The Blast reported, Bravo has fired five stars from the network due to racial comments. The latest personality to get axed was “Below Deck Mediterranean” star Peter Hunziker. “Vanderpump Rules” stars Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni were fired last week. Fans are now calling on Bravo to take action against a number of stars including Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, NeNe Leakes, Kelly Dodd, and Lala Kent.
