‘Moving forward we will work to improve our processes to ensure we make better informed and more thoughtful casting decisions.’

The offending jokes – using phrases such as ‘BLM Thugs’ – were posted over a six-month time period amid the ongoing Black Lives Matter protests in 2020.  

Andy Cohen addressed the drama this week on Watch What Happens Live and alluded to some incoming disciplinary action for Jennie.

He said: ‘I’ve also seen all the tweets wanting to know what’s being done about those posts. I just wanna say in case anyone doesn’t realize it, there are many serious discussions happening right now about everything.’

‘I can’t address the situation right now but it will be addressed very soon,” he concluded, “and thank you for your patience and the posts were very upsetting, rightfully, and disgusting. So, there you go.’

Fans had already called for the reality star to be fired last Wednesday, after they slammed her over the offensive and controversial posts. 

The various memes carry a theme of depicting the Black Lives Matter protestors in a negative light, as well as encouraging violence against the movement itself.

Addressing the controversy herself last week, Nguyen admitted she had shared the posts, writing: ‘I want to acknowledge and apologize for my deleted  Facebook posts from 2020 that resurfaced today.’

‘At the time, I thought I was speaking out against violence, but I have since learned how offensive and hurtful my words were.’

‘It’s why I deactivated that account more than a year ago and why I continue to try to learn about perspectives different from my own. I regret those posts and am sincerely sorry for the pain they caused.’  

Screenshots first posted by All About The Tea show Nguyen sharing the disturbing images to her social media, including one that doubted George Floyd was killed as a result of police brutality.
