The shooting comes after Faith Stowers, who occasionally appeared on the show a few seasons ago, revealed that Schroeder and Doute, the original members of the actors, had taken what she said were racist actions against her. New cast members Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni have also been released, after racist tweets from their past recirculated.
“Bravo and the evolutionary media confirmed today that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not return to the ‘Vanderpump rules,'” a Bravo spokesman told CNN.
CNN contacted representatives of Schroeder and Doute for comment.
During a live chat on Instagram last week, Stowers brought up a 2018 incident in which they said Schroeder and Doute called police to report her for crimes she did not commit.
“It was this article in the Daily Mail where there was some African-American lady,” Stowers said on June 2nd. “It was a weird photo, so she looked very light blue and she had these different, weird tattoos. They exposed her and I guess this woman robbed people. They called the cops and said it was me. It’s a true story. It’s me actually heard from Stasi during the interview. “
They posted apologies on Instagram on Sunday.
“What I did to Faith is wrong,” Schroeder wrote. “I apologize and do not expect forgiveness. I feel sorry for anyone else who feels disappointed in me. I will continue to look closer to myself and my actions – take time to listen, learn and learn to take responsibility for your privilege.”
“I have to deal with something concrete that happened a few years ago with my former actress Faith Stowers,” Doute wrote in her post. “Although my actions were not conducted racially, I am now fully aware of how much my privilege has blinded me to the reality of the police’s treatment of the black community and how dangerous my actions could have been.”
“I’m ashamed, I’m embarrassed and I’m incredibly sorry,” Doute added.
“I want to express my deepest apologies for the insensitive, ignorant and harmful comments I have made. I am incredibly ashamed and accept full responsibility and acknowledge that this language was as unacceptable then as it is now,” Caprioni said. Please know that I have learned and grown since then and I will never use this language today. I am truly sorry with all my heart. “
