Kim Zolciak-Biermann wants to clarify her comments.
The 37-year-old reality star came under fire after being shown on Sunday in Season 10 of the Reason Housewives of Atlanta that racism was not "real." In a lengthy post on Instagram on Thursday, Zolciak-Biermann said her comment had been taken out of context and that she "does not support, tolerate or tolerate any form of racism."
"During the last RHOA reunion episode, I made a comment that confused and insulted people.I apologize sincerely, taken out of context, I understand why my remark angered people," she started. "Racism is a sad reality in the United States, it is widespread in the history of our country, let me make it clear that I do not support, tolerate or tolerate any form of racism, hatred or other discrimination." My love for ALL people is profound ̵
" I was heartbroken as I watched the last minutes of the episode and saw my words taken out of context. "My comment, apparently" racism "& # 39; t exist 10 years ago & # 39; was created as part of a larger, emotional 45-minute conversation about the fact that social media has unfortunately become a hub for hatred, "said Zolciak-Biermann. "Immediately after my confusing comment, I also said that" it's not as real as it is now "and refers to the power of social media, but those remarks did not make the show."
The Do not Be Tardy further stated that Star Star believes that social media "makes a centuries-old problem more real" and allows people to participate in the news cycle in real time. "But this is a double-edged sword and now, when false charges are made, they are amplified by online platforms, regardless of their merit," she said. "That was not the case 10 years ago, when I started on RHOA ."
"I sincerely pray that people who want terrible things on other people turn that energy into something positive, and our world would be a much better place," concluded Zolciak-Biermann. "I commit to make this world a better place to live, I will continue to learn from ALL people and be open to them."
The explosive episode features a heated Zolciak beer man – who was fencing with NeNe Leakes this season and said: "This whole racism thing in this day and age is bullshit. Every one of these motherf ** kers on this couch owes this world af ** king apologize for this racism s ** t. You've already tried that No one bought it because the social media was not there and racism was not all that real. "
Then the reality star went to the bathroom and called executive producer Andy Cohen to ask why "She did not even have a single positive question throughout the show." Unfortunately, there was nothing positive in her story of the season, "he replied. It was all combative. "
A source ET says that after reunification controv Zsolciak-Biermann has discontinued the entire production of the seventh season of Do not Be Tardy . According to the source, the grappling with the drama was a" legality problem " and that "supporting statements were not intentionally broadcast for a dramatic effect, and without these statements being commensurate with what was aired, it made Kim's statement misleading."
"Kim and [husband] Kroy [Biermann] are very distressed and disappointed with the production they've had a relationship with for 11 years and the fact that they're willing to sacrifice the reputation of one of their most loyal and the biggest stars for & # 39; shock effect & # 39; and ratings, "the source adds.
