NeNe Leakes got the boot after saying an inappropriate comment towards a heckler.
The New York Daily News reports, Leakes was supposed to host the Xscape reunion show but was taken off after she told someone at her recent comedy show she hoped they got raped by their Uber driver.
Xscape released a statement to TMZ saying, “Like many, we were dismayed by the recent remarks made by our talented colleague and friend NeNe Leakes.” They continued, “As a result, we 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.”
A mouthful but it looks like the team at Xscape is still wishing the best for the Real Housewives Of Atlanta star.
At her comedy set for Girls Nite Out For Laughs in Oakland, California, Leakes lashed out a woman who was booing at her.
“I ain’t even gonna tell you about the goddamn Uber driver. I hope he rape yo’ a- tonight when he take you home, b****,” Leakes responded. “And steal yo’ funky Hello Kitty, b****.”
In a Facebook after the incident on stage, Leakes posted, “ I truly regret and apologize for what I said from the stage in Oakland over the weekend.”
She continued, “Sometimes words can cut deep and hurt when you have no intentions of them doing so. As a woman and someone who has survived abuse, I regret the words that I used. I made a mistake and I should have known better. I hope people accept my deepest and sincerest apologies. I am sorry.”
