‘RHOSLC’ star Jennie Nguyen apologizes for posting on social media

Well, it did not take long.

"Real Housewives of Salt Lake City" star Jennie Nguyen has apologized for the controversial posts on social media she got hot for on Wednesday.

"I would like to acknowledge and apologize for my deleted Facebook posts from 2020 that reappeared today," Nguyen wrote via Instagram. "At the time, I thought I was speaking out against violence, but I have since learned how offensive and hurtful my words were."

"That's why I disabled that account more than a year ago and why I keep trying to learn about perspectives other than my own. I regret these posts and am sincerely sorry for the pain they have caused. "

(When Side Six visited the account Nguyen had set up earlier Wednesday, it had not been disabled.)

Nguyen has reportedly posted and re-posted photos throughout 2020 at the height of the Black Lives Matter movement using phrases like "BLM Thugs" and "Violent Gangs."

Material posted by the Vietnamese-American Nguyen also included mentions of "blacks" and a rebutted theory that George Floyd assaulted a student in Spain.

Another cartoon appeared to shed light on rashes from protesters hit by cars during the protests, a number that the Boston Globe found at least 139 cases between May 2020 and September 30, 2021 - three of which were fatal.

Fans pointed out that the discovery of the posts was particularly cruel in light of a recent "RHOSLC" moment in which Nguyen accused co-star Mary M. Cosby of being racist after Cosby told her she has "nice slanted eyes. "

Neither Bravo nor Nguyen's representatives responded to Page Six's request for comment,
