Things seem to spiraling out of control for Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder since being called out by former castmate Faith Stowers, who is black, for past attacks and calling the police on her.

After being dropped by brands she worked with, including Secret Deodorant, Billie and vitamin company Ritual,  Schroeder has now been dropped by her agency and publicist, according to Variety.

A spokesperson confirmed to the outlet that Schroeder was no longer a client. “She became a client when her publicist joined our company in July 2018. We made the decision this weekend to part ways with Stassi,” Metro Public Relations told Variety.

In fact, the PR company’s most recent post on Instagram is a message in support of Black Lives Matter.

Schroeder began her career on Vanderpump Rules in 2013. She was part of the original cast lead by Lisa Vanderpump, with castmates Jax Taylor, Kristen Doute, Tom Sandoval, Schena Shay, Tom Schwartz and Katie Maoney.

The backlash occurred after Stowers, who appeared in seasons 4 and 6,  revealed during an Instagram Live with MTV’s Candace Renee Rice, that Schroeder and castmate Kristen Doute decided to call the police on her because she looked like an African American woman wanted by police.

“They thought it was me because it was a black woman with a weave,” Stowers shared. “So they just assumed it would be me and they called the cops on me. And it didn’t work so they were upset about that. So they said, “she’s military, she’s awol. The Military is looking for her so get her that way. No. I was actually honorably discharged and I have that paper work and I showed that as well online. I was upset that they were trying every avenue.”

Following Stowers comments, both Schroeder and Doute took to Instagram to apologize for their actions. Schroeder addressed Stowers directly.

“I also want to address my former castmate, Faith Stowers. My emotions over something that happened between our friends outweighed my logic and there is no excuse for that. I did not recognize then the serious ramifications that could have transpired because of my actions,” Schroeder wrote.

“What I did to Faith was wrong,” she added. “I apologize and I do not expect forgiveness. I am also sorry to anyone else that feels disappointed in me. I  am going to look closer at myself and my actions- to take the time to listen, to learn, and to take accountability for my privilege.”

Apparently, that apology didn’t help with her PR agency.
