Gizelle Bryant, a star on “Real Housewives of Potomac,” is facing criticism for making an anti-Semitic comment on her podcast, “Reasonably Shady.” During a discussion about the high cost of tickets to a Drake concert, Bryant made a joke about “the Rubinsteins,” referring to a primarily Jewish last name. Her co-host and “RHOP” co-star Robyn Dixon laughed and agreed with the joke. Many social media users spoke out against Bryant’s comment via Instagram, calling it “awful” and “disgusting.” Some urged Bryant and Dixon to “do better” in the future.
This controversy comes just one week after Bryant used a gay slur on “Reasonably Shady” while discussing the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax. During the conversation, she stated, “they were supposed to call him ‘f–got’ or something.” Bravo fans have also criticized Bryant for requesting that her co-stars on “RHUGT” stop speaking Spanish around her while filming.
Bryant and Dixon launched “Reasonably Shady” in November 2021, five years after joining the “Real Housewives” franchise. As of now, Bryant has not responded to the backlash she has received for her comments. Page Six has reached out to her representative for comment.
Bryant’s recent remarks have been deemed problematic and offensive, sparking outrage on social media. As a public figure with a platform and influence, it is important to be mindful of the language used and the impact it may have on others. It remains to be seen how Bryant will address the backlash she has received for her insensitive remarks.
