• Bravo said it has stopped filming with Jennie Nguyen and fired her from "Real Housewives of Salt Lake City"
  • A fan previously started a petition calling on the network to fire Nguyen "for being a racist"
  • Nguyen's co-stars are "excited to see her go" following the controversy, a report says

Jennie Nguyen has been fired from "The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City" following her recent scandal.

Bravo made the announcement in a statement released Tuesday, nearly a week after Nguyen's racially insensitive Facebook posts from 2020 resurfaced, causing major backlash. Her account has since been deactivated.

"Bravo has ceased filming with Jennie Nguyen and she will no longer be a cast member on 'The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City,'" the network said in the statement obtained by Page Six. "We recognize we failed to take appropriate action once her offensive social media posts were brought to our attention. Moving forward, we will work to improve our processes to ensure we make better informed and more thoughtful casting decisions."

Nguyen, 44, faced intense backlash last week after her Facebook posts that mocked the Black Lives Matter movement and protesters resurfaced online. She posted and reposted memes and photos that included phrases like "BLM thugs" and "violent gangs."

Prior to Nguyen's axing, one fan started a petition titled "Fire Jennie Nguyen for being a racist."

"Jennie Nguyen's Facebook shows who she truly is. It shows us what she believes and how she feels about Black people. The posts are beyond problematic. Beyond ignorance. They condone violence. They laugh at violence. It's disgusting," the petition read.

Meanwhile, Nguyen's "RHOSLC" co-stars are "excited to see her go," an unnamed source close to production told Page Six.

"Everyone is so relieved that Jennie was fired," the insider added. "Absolutely nobody wanted to film with her or be associated with her after the social media drama."

Nguyen had apologized in a statement shared via Instagram the same day the posts became public, writing in part, "I thought I was speaking out against violence."

The reality star — who joined "RHOSLC" in Season 2 — added that she has "since learned how offensive and hurtful [her] words were."

However, nearly all of Nguyen's co-stars publicly condemned her posts and unfollowed her on Instagram.

Meredith Marks said she was "sickened" by the posts and was "disturbed and outraged by her actions."

Whitney Rose said she was "shocked and saddened," while Heather Gay was "disappointed." Jen Shah, who has a Black husband and sons, directly called out Nguyen and criticized her "disingenuous apology."

Lisa Barlow, for her part, made it clear that she does not "condone" her friend's controversial Facebook posts, which included one that made a joke out of running over "rioters" with a car.

"I'm completely anti-racist, so I hope everyone does better, but I definitely don't condone those," Barlow said when she appeared on Sunday's episode of "Watch What Happens Live."

"The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
