'Vanderpump Rules' Star Katie Maloney Slams Missouri Couple Who Pulled AR-15 On Protesters

By Whitney Vasquez

Katie Maloney is continuing to use her platform to bring attention to Black Lives Matter. This time, the "Vanderpump Rules" star is addressing the white couple who made headlines on Sunday, June 28 after they pulled an AR-15 rifle and a handgun at protesters walking past their lavish home in St. Louis, Missouri. The gun-toting duo, who has been dubbed "Karen and Ken" on the Internet, has faced backlash online for their actions that many, including Katie Maloney, view as unwarranted.

The Gun-Toting Couple:


Their real names are Mark and Patricia McCloskey. In several videos circulating the web, they can be seen waving their guns and screaming at protesters who are headed to the mayor's home to protest against police brutality. The McCloskey's mansion, locally known as the Neimann Mansion, was just a walking past point.

Reposting a picture of Patricia McCloskey wearing her blue and white striped shirt as she held the gun wide-eyed at protesters, Katie Maloney shared her thoughts on the couple's actions.

Katie's Post:


Taking to her Instagram Story, the "Vanderpump Rules" star shared the picture from social injustice activist Shaun King and added her own commentary. "Wtf," she wrote above the snap of Patricia McCloskey that day. Katie Maloney has been using her platform to discuss the Black Lives Matter movement after her co-stars Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were fired earlier this month for an incident where they racially profiled their ex castmate Faith Stowers. Maloney has been praised for her past actions which include speaking out against Jax Taylor's cop prank.

Jax's Cop Prank:


"Pump Rules" viewers will recall the time Jax used fake cops to “arrest” Tom Sandoval as a prank to get him back for TPing Jax's home. Katie Maloney was angry over the joke and made it clear immediately after, which got her in hot water with her husband, Tom Schwartz. After tweeting about Breonna Taylor, fans rehashed the incident and defended Katie Maloney against haters.

THIS IS WHY YLU MADE A BIG DEAL THE COP “joke” for @mrjaxtaylor a birthday! I love you for that Katie,” one person wrote before adding, “You are so woke.”
