A Change.org petition was launched that demands Bravo fire Jax for his alleged, “long, public history of racism, misogyny, homophobia, and transphobia.”
The petition was started after the network fired Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute for their treatment of costar Faith Stowers. It read, “Bravo TV has taken the first steps in the right direction on holding the Vanderpump Rules cast accountable. However, they are continuing to employ and enable fellow cast members that are just as guilty as Stassi and Kristen- specifically, Jax Taylor.”
They argued, “He was just as involved in calling the police and making accusations against Faith Stowers, which is what got Stassi and Kristen fired. His former cast mate, Billie Lee, has accused him of refusing to film with her because she is transgendered. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.”
Jax has decided to remain quiet amid the calls for him to be fired from the reality show. Over the weekend, he posted an emotional tribute to his late father.
As The Blast previously reported, Bravo fired four cast members following accusations of past racist behavior. The network released a statement, “Bravo and Evolution Media confirmed today that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules.”
The decision came after former cast member Faith Stowers spoke out about the treatment she received while on the show. Faith accused Stassi and Kristen of making her life a living hell and called the cops on her to falsely accuse her of a robbery.
Another former cast member, Billie Lee, accused Jax of refusing to film with her because she is a trans woman.
Bravo has yet to comment on the petition.
