In the wake of Stassi and Kristen’s firing by Bravo, Twitter lit up with calls to fire Jax, with many pointing out specific instances where they believe he has also crossed the line.
According to a recent report, tweets have surfaced of Jax Taylor making similar racially insensitive remarks towards co-star Faith Stowers.
In December 2017, according to the NY Post, after a fan asked Jax if Stowers would be a permanent cast member on the show, he responded, “She’s wanted by the police for grand theft auto and ‘awol’ from military, bad idea to be on a reality show dude.”
He added, “Someone’s going to jail.”
Jax is being slammed by fans of the show, calling for his firing or even canceling of the entire show.
“So bravo fires Stassi and Kristen but leaves Jax on as a cast member? I mean absolute good riddance to Stassi/Kristen but Jax has also been an active homophobe on a show that has multiple episodes centered around pride. we can’t pick and choose where to draw lines,” one tweet read.
Another person added, “Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder called the cops on Faith Stowers but Jax Taylor perpetuated the lie too. He always gets away with things, Faith said it, the girls attacked her and forgave him right away.”
Several fans of the show pointed out Jax’s previous comments involving sexuality, and believe the show has been protecting him for years.
“But Jax ‘figure out your sexuality’ Taylor gets to keep his job? Also why the hell weren’t Brett and Max fired at the beginning of the season? Stassi has been problematic for years on race issues and Kristen obviously f—ed up, but let’s not pick & choose,” one person tweeted.
Several fans of the reality show are accusing Jax of being outwardly homophobic during several episodes.
“You can’t pick what you choose to be dealt with. Especially behind closed doors,” a fan wrote.
At this point, Lisa Vanderpump and producers of the reality show have been quiet about the situation — but Bravo officials have confirmed the firing of both Stassi and Kristen.
As we reported, Faith Stowers recently recalled the situation in which the two women called the cops to report her because she looked like another black woman who was wanted for theft.
In a recent interview, Faith recalled, “There was this article on Daily Mail where there was an African American lady. It was a weird photo, so she looked very light-skinned and had these different, weird tattoos. They showcased her, and I guess this woman was robbing people.”
She continued, “And they called the cops and said it was me. This is like, a true story. I heard this from actually Stassi during an interview.”
Earlier today, Bravo issued a statement on the firing of the two reality stars, saying, “Bravo and Evolution Media confirmed today that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules.”
No word yet on any other cast members who could possibly be on the chopping block.
