Evelyn Lozada in all probability needs she might have a do-over after making a racially insensitive dig at CeCe Gutierrez on a latest episode of Basketball Wives.
Lozada and her co-star have been in the course of a heated argument throughout which Gutierrez referred to her as “Evil-yn” and one half of “Tweedledee and Tweedledumb” (together with Jennifer Williams).
Lozada fired again and known as her “Lee Lee,” a reference to a lady who works at a nail store. Being that Gutierrez is of Asian respectable (Filipino), it was cloaked within the racial stereotype that Asian girls usually work nail salons.
On the time, the pair’s co-stars didn’t condemn the name-calling, however the Web definitely caught on and even started a Change.org petition demanding that Evelyn Lozada be relieved “of her companies from Basketball Wives.”
“The viewers of VH1’s Basketball Wives demand Ms.Lozada be terminated from employment indefinitely… by the Government Producer Shaunie O’Neal or The Different VH1 Underlying Personnel,” learn the petition. “If not, count on the present to drop in huge rankings, as we the viewers won’t tolerate sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, fat-shaming, or every other sort of harassment and injustice.”
Lozada’s preliminary response was lower than honest principally making a tweet that amounted to s**t occurs. However after extra backlash got here her approach, she returned with a way more considerate method.
On her Instagram, Evelyn Lozada wrote a full assertion of apology and even posted a video additional explaining why she was sorry. See each of these under.
