Max Boyens, the newest cast member on season 8 of Vanderpump Rules, is catching some heat. Recently some past tweets from the general manager of TomTom, a Lisa Vanderpump restaurant in Los Angeles, have resurfaced with some racist comments.
“I want to sincerely apologize for what I tweeted in 2012—it was wrong on every level,” he said in a statement to People. “It is not a representation of who I am. I am shocked I ever tweeted that—and I am disgusted and embarrassed—I am truly sorry.”
Let’s go back. In 2012, Max, who was not on the Bravo show yet, had a series of Tweets that were captured by FaceReality16 and reported on by People.
“It upsets me that the word n—a is not allowed to be said unless you are black because quite honestly it’s my favorite word,” Max wrote before sharing the word again.
“Something about Asians that just makes me want to punch them in the suck hole,” he shared in another Tweet.
And that’s not all, he continued sharing his opinion on his Twitter account, which is now private, even bringing Justin Bieber into his messages.
“There’s this girl I see [email protected], she looks just like the girl from the movie precious&I’m not just saying this Cuz she’s big and black,” he Tweeted.
“When is Justin Bieber going to realize that saying n—a and cussing and having big booty bitches in his songs is the cool thing to do #queer,” another stated.
As we all know, nothing on social media ever dies, it can come back and haunt you as did Max’s racism rants. Many Twitter members have caught the offending tweets and are sharing them with their followers. As you can imagine, the comments in response to Max were swift and harsh, hoping that an end to Max’s career is near.
“Lol your career just ended before it even started. Boy bye,” one person replied after showing the offensive tweets.
“I hope that @BravoTV has a conversation about these tweets from@Max_boyens Seriously WTF?!? Closet racist and homophobics always make their way to the light. Thank god for screen shots before he could delete them #pumprules,” added another.
No comment from Bravo or Lisa Vanderpump as of yet.
