Fans believe as an executive producer she could’ve emerge stronger in her own reaction. Following Vanderpump’s declaration, watchers had been fast to shoot the restauranteur.

“Of course, Lisa Vanderpump gave the worst response when confronted that she likes to employ absolute degenerates,” a fan wrote. “She likes to wave her inclusivity flag around but notice the lack of diversity in her restaurants and show.”

“Cast lack diversity and have been problematic for years,” another fan added. “The transphobia, homophobia, and racism [have] made me miss this year. They have to do better.”

“So she fires James [Kennedy] for calling Katie fat but she will excuse that behavior?” a viewer questioned.

“Lisa Vanderpump, of course, they understand the severity,” another viewer commented. “Come on, they are only worried about their spot on the show. Do better. Hire people that deserve it and there are many 20-year-olds that would never tweet such racist thoughts.”

“Doesn’t look like anyone is getting fired. LVP seems to think because it’s in the past. Disappointed. Do better,” a Twitter user discussed.

“Come on Lisa. I happened to be a dumb teen as soon as but We never ever believed [of] utilizing those words or hating on people. They are just sorry since they got exposed,” another Twitter user shared.

As of today, Bravo has not yet circulated the official statement in connection with conflict or the way they will handle the scandal.
