Jennie Nguyen is one of the stars of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. After a remark made by her co-star Mary M. Cosby, the freshman housewife took to Twitter to fire back at the church leader.
“Racism, in any form, is RACISM!” she wrote in the now-deleted tweet. “This is what my husband and I grew up with daily. To be silent, or to laugh while someone is being racist, is to be complicit.”
In a second tweet, she added, “I hope that one day that my children, and yours, will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. Let’s [sic] us use our privilege to end HATE.”
Mary Cosby apologizes for racial remarks
“I would like to take this opportunity to address a comment I made on the last episode of RHOSLC,” she posted on Instagram. “I used poor judgement in my choice of words. Please accept my apologies, I was not trying to single out the Mexican culture.”
Cosby also said, “I am African American and I know racism first hand. I’ve lived it daily my entire life. It is important to me that you hear this apology directly from me. My comment was wreckless… unintentional. I am truly sorry.”
