Fans Choose Sides In Leanne Locken And Kary Brittangham Feud After Episode Airs Where Leanne Mocks Kary's Ethnicity
The first of a string of problematic episodes of Real Housewives of Dallas aired Wednesday night. Leanne Locken has come under fire for making racial comments about her co-star Kary Brittingham.
During the latest installment of RHOD, the ladies travel to Thailand where Kary and Leanne bump heads.
First, the group visits a few temples where Locken tells Kary to take off her hat multiple times. She then says to a co-star Kary should respond to her in 'Mexican words' after they get into a mini spat.
Then, at a dinner where D'andra Simmons wore Leanne's infinity dress as a joke, Locken was offended by Brittingham who took it as an opportunity to make fun of her creation.
While telling Stephanie Hollman how upset she was about Kary's actions, Leanne said: 'You don't have the balls to be courageous. C'mon Mexican, I thought you were all Mexican and strong. F*** that b**** you ain't survive s*** and I'm tired of it. '
Immediately, viewers took to social media to state their opinions.
One person tweeted: ' It seriously grosses me out very time LeeAnne impersonates and mocks @karybrittingham ’s accent and (sometimes)broken English. It’s disgusting and disrespectful to Spanish speaking cultures #RHOD.'
'As much charity work Leann claims she does it surprises me on how ignorant her comments toward kary were. You live in Texas wise up!!!' added another.
One viewer revealed: ' So! Leanne blocked me because I stated that her statements tonight came off as racist and prejudice. They did! It was offensive to MANY. She always speaks about owning up to things I would’ve thought this would’ve been ignored or a simple discussion. #RHOD.'
Meanwhile, others came to her defense due to Kary and D'andra's actions.
One viewer tweeted: ' Omg what’s wrong with Kary & D’Andra!!! On & on & on & on!!!! Good on @BrandiRedmond loving her this season!!!! @LeeAnneLocken you handled that horrible situation so well!!'
This person added: ' D’Andra already starting the Thailand trip on some bullshit. And Kary of course co-signing. #RHOD,'
Do you think that Leanne is racist?
