When you’re in the public eye you are held responsible for every little thing you say and do. Stassi Schroeder has been learning that for years but it still doesn’t stop her from posting whatever she wants on her social media profiles.
The “Vanderpump Rules” star captioned a photo of her, Rachel O’Brien, and Kristen Doute wearing coordinating black outfits with: “Criminal chic, Tupac, Chic, and Nazi chic.”

The photo left a bad taste in many fan’s mouths and they immediately took to Twitter to voice their frustrations.
One user tweeted:”@stassi thank you for the picture I will use this next year when anyone wants to know what white privilege is.
Another urged a sponsor of her podcast, “Straight Up with Stassi,” to get rid of the 29-year-old reality star by saying: “@EtoileSlayer @mvmt yes to this! This is not who you want representing your company. Would never buy if “SS” is affiliated.
Schroeder then caught wind of the backlash and tweeted a meme of a man trying to make his way through a laser trap with the caption “Trying to make a joke that won’t offend anyone in 2017.”
That made her followers even angrier.
A user responded by saying: “Since a pretty good chunk of the population was murdered by nazis and I suspect substantially fewer people have been killed by lasers… false equivalence.”
Stassi ended up editing the photo and changing “Nazi chic” to “Elsa-Indiana Jones chic.”
This is the second time in the last few months that the podcast host has come under fire for her comments.
She was accused of victim-shaming and undermining the purpose of the #metoo movement by saying, in part, that: “I’m sorry, no one could make me suck a d***. I’m sorry it sounds like he thought you liked it because you were making out with him. And now that it’s a trend and it’s #metoo you’re going to come out and accuse him because you regret it.”
After being dropped by three of her sponsors, Schroeder released a lengthy apology on her blog site.
Do you think she’s crossed the line yet again?
