Meredith Marks clarified her "vile" tweet over her "Real Housewives of Salt Lake City" co-star Jennie Nguyen's racially insensitive posts that resurfaced.

Marks cleared her position about Nguyen's controversial posts on Twitter. She said she was "disturbed and outraged" upon seeing them.

"Since it was not perfectly clear in my previous tweet and I can now speak out in more depth, I am sickened by my co-worker's racist and prejudicial posts that recently surfaced," she wrote. "I do not stand behind or support these posts in any way, shape or form. I stand with and support the communities affected and targeted by this. I am deeply disturbed and outraged by her actions. Black Lives Matter."

She continued, "You will see repercussions. As difficult as it is, give things a moment to come to light. Know that I do not support this behavior in any way and will continue using my platform to speak out against it."

Before Marks' recent post, she tweeted "vile" after Nguyen's controversial social media posts surfaced Wednesday. One of her followers asked her if she had anything more to say and she responded, "Not allowed to rn. But yes, I have a lot more to say about many things and I will."

Nguyen acknowledged the old posts that resurfaced and apologized for them on Instagram. According to her, "I thought I was speaking out against violence, but I have since learned how offensive and hurtful my words were." She added that it was the reason she deactivated her account over a year ago.

"I regret those posts and am sincerely sorry for the pain they caused," she concluded her post.

Daily Mail shared several screenshots of Nguyen's old posts, including racist and anti-vaxx memes. An unnamed source told Entertainment Tonight that Nguyen has not been fired from the franchise. However, her future in the franchise remains uncertain because the cast is taking a stance, and they "won't tolerate racism."

"It's still very early on. Who knows what's going to happen with Jennie? She may not stick around for the whole season," the tipster said.
