Another “Vanderpump Rules” star is being called out for making racially insensitive comments towards fellow cast member Faith Stowers.
Jax Taylor, 40, accused Stowers, 31, of committing crimes in a newly resurfaced tweet from December 2017.
After a fan asked Taylor if Stowers would appear permanently on the Bravo show, he wrote, “She’s wanted by the police for grand theft auto and ‘awol’ from military, bad idea to be on a reality show dude.”
He added, “Someone’s going to jail.”
Jax was slammed by several internet users calling for him, and the show, to be canceled.
“Just cancel #VanderpumpRules already, @Bravo. This is getting embarrassing,” wrote one critic, along with a link to a story on his comments
Taylor’s comments resurfaced after Stowers spoke out about the difficulties she faced being the only black cast member on the show.
Last week, Stowers alleged that Stassi Schroeder, 31, and Kristen Doute, 37, told cops they believed a photo of a suspect looked like her.
“There was this article in the Daily Mail where there was an African American lady. It was a weird photo, so she looked very light-skinned and had these different, weird tattoos. I guess this woman was robbing people,” Stowers said during Instagram Live chat with “Floribama Shore” star Candace Rice.
“And they called the cops and said it was me. This is like, a true story. I heard this from, actually, Stassi during an interview.”
Schroeder and Doute have since apologized for their behavior, however, Schroeder is facing the consequences.
She was dropped by several brands as well as her publicist and her PR agency.
Taylor’s rep did not immediately respond to our request for comment.
Taylor himself was arrested in 2015 for stealing a $300 pair of sunglasses in Hawaii.
