Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes have been removed from her hosting gig on the Xscape reunion tour after dropping a disgusting rape joke at a heckler during one of her comedy shows.
Xscape released this statement Thursday morning:
“Like many, we were dismayed by the recent remarks made by our talented colleague and friend Nene Leakes. As a result, we have decided to no longer proceed with her participation on our tour. It was an unfortunate incident for which Nene has since apologized and we wish her the best as she navigates this very difficult period. As strong supporters of all women, we know this decision is what is best. Our hearts go out to all female victims and we stand with you! This tour is for and about our fans and we want to provide an entertaining and enjoyable experience for every single person who attends. As always, we are grateful for the love and support and we look forward to seeing all of you at “The Great Xscape” tour.”
NeNe got booed last weekend in Oakland when she said she hoped a heckler got raped by their Uber driver.
The ‘Real Housewives’ star apologized later saying she regretted uttering the words, especially as she is an abuse victim herself.
