Evelyn Lozada, of Basketball Wives fame, has been under fire recently, after making comments that many described as racist and inappropriate against the show’s new recruit, CeCe Gutierrez, with some even adding that she was a negative influence for young women.

In the episode, Lozada asked Gutierrez about the nicknames she called her and Jennifer Williams: "Tweedle dumb and tweedle dumber.”

Gutierrez bashed her by calling her “Evil-yn,” prompting Lozada to hit with a racist stereotype: “I have a problem with you, Lee Lee.”

Gutierrez, who is Asian asked who is “Lee Lee” and co-star Malaysia Pargo explained it was a girl at a nail shop.

And while Lozada (nor Shaunie O'Neal) has yet to respond to the situation, it looks like some fans of the show have had it with her attitude, and want to see her gone from the screen.

A petition for her removal from the show has reportedly gathered over 6,000 signatures in a short time, and while it is not clear if it will have any impact on the producers' thoughts on the matter, it makes the position of many fans of the show clear.

The petition reads: “This racial comment ‘slur’ is unacceptable, especially from a show with a majority female and minority cast. Regardless of being black, white, skinny, fat, diabetic, gay, lesbian, transgender, Asian … It’s unacceptable to make fun of someone because of these things, and Ms.Lozada has done this on multiple occasions throughout the shows run time. The viewers of VH1’s ‘Basketball Wives’ demand Ms.Lozada be terminated from employment indefinitely … by the Executive Producer Shaunie O’Neal or the other VH1 underlying personnel.”

It is also worth noting that this is just the largest petition so far, with multiple smaller ones also drawing a lot of attention.

There has also been active discussion about Lozada and her attitude on social media, and many fans of the show have chimed in to express their disappointment over the fact that she is still allowed on the set of the reality TV series.

Tensions have been growing rapidly in the controversial situation, and some have pointed out that the only viable option left for Lozada at this point is to offer a public statement and a sincere apology and hope for the best.

Even if the producers of the show do not mind her presence on the show, if the backlash against her grows too strong, they might be forced to step in if they want to protect their own ratings.

    How long has Tami been acting aggressive and violent? Now she is acting all holy like she has forgotten her actions on the show. How many of the cast has she attacked over the years and up to now still on the show. Hypocrites I say!

    My opinion of the whole cast, Shaunie included: No matter how you dress up compost and spray it with the latest Chanel scent, it’s still compost. That’s what they all are. 🤮🤮🤮🤮

    So it is ok for CeCe to call Evelyn a hood rat. She stated some of the other black women had class but Eve was a hood rat. Now to me that is saying you guys are different than the typical black(because that is what they think of our race as a whole hood rats). If you throw a stone expect one back. I do not care for CeCe neither OG, both of them starts mess. They have gone out of their way to hurt Christine. Byron is real blind for not seeing the kind of women he is marrying. That comment was a racial slur as well. If Eve goes she should as well. OG should go as well she reminds us that she is the violent one all of the time. She wants to kill with her bare hands. Who says that,? She is acting like an animal not a human being.
