Former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Taylor Armstrong is catching heat after criticizing the protests over the murder of George Floyd.

It all started after Taylor replied to a tweet mentioning ANTIFA, “That is disgusting!! We need peace more than ever ! Our small businesses are suffering. @realDonaldTrump do something NOW! We trust you and need you.”

One follower quickly commented, “Eww. Immediate unfollow! Where is your outrage for the MURDER of yet another black man at the hands of police paid to protect and serve all people?!? #whiteprivilegeisreal.” The former reality star tried to explain, “I’m am so on your side!! I am so for the police officer of George Floyd’s killing being incarcerated but I hate the small business owners being burned downed for NO reason and the looting, that’s just criminal. LOOTING IS STEALING."

“Wow you really don’t learn. There is no “but” here. Say you are horrified by this murder and how you will use your privilege to help effect change.,” said one former fan.

She added, “Just to be clear...I am on the side of George Floyd, I believe his murder was HORRIFIC! I hope his murderer is brought to justice. It hurts my heart for him and all the business owners that are suffering from these riots.”

A supporter advised, “Sweetie don't drink the #haterade your true fans kno you hun.” Taylor decided to bring up her own ethnicity commenting, “Thanks sweets! And I guess people forget I am an Oklahoma Cherokee and Blackfoot Indian so if they want it talk about heritage issues they should take a breathe!”

She wasn’t done talking about the protests. Taylor continued, “What is happening now has nothing to do with the tragic death of George Floyd - criminal looting is stealing - our businesses hurt by COVID don’t deserve this!!! You are blessed to live in the USA. Leave our small businesses alone!”

Taylor even felt the need to tell everyone she has black friends, “I am on the side of the innocent George Floyd and I am ashamed of the cop that killed that beautiful man who was only trying to buy food. Many of my long life friends are African American and family to me. I don’t see color only friendship and family.”

As The Blast previously reported, Taylor is the latest in a string of “Housewives” being accused of being ‘tone-deaf' in the past couple of weeks.
