Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant, PUMP, which is also one of the locations of the popular series, Vanderpump Rules, is closed down at the moment on account of the coronavirus pandemic. Clearly, the COVID-19 predicament created a great opportunity for graffiti artists who have since covered it with Black Lives Matter logos and murals.
This all comes after Stassi Schroeder and Kristin Doute, two of the original cast members, were fired from the set over their treatment of Faith Stowers. TMZ picked up on photos of PUMP in West Hollywood, a location where Lisa and her cast members and employees hang out.
While one might assume the tagging came after the firing of Kristin and Stassi, it turns out that it actually happened much sooner. Black Lives Matter graffiti has been appearing all over Los Angeles following the death of George Floyd.
Reportedly, Lisa Vanderpump chose not to fire Max or Brett after learning about their old tweets. However, Bravo later came and fired all four of the individuals involved, possibly due to avoid the potential backlash of keeping them on.

Look at these young kids right here. This is our future. It’s up to us to educate our youth. It’s a delicate subject that needs to be a conversation, no matter how uncomfortable it may be. I am so thankful for what I’ve been allowed to be a part of the past few day. Today I witnessed love. I witnessed people coming together for change. People coming to defend the lives of our black brothers and sisters. I’m so damn proud of everyone out there, marching and protesting. Let’s keep it up until we see the change that must be made. Let’s keep our voices raised & our presence known. & please stay safe, my loves. #BLACKLIVESMATTER
As it was previously reported, Stassi and Kristin Doute called the police on Faith Stowers after they saw a report from The Daily Mail about a black woman who was guilty of theft. Doute and Schroeder purported thought the woman looked a lot like Faith, however, as it turns out, it wasn’t her.
Faith Stowers came out with her story again recently, to which Stassi previously admitted during an old podcast episode. Recently, a report from Page Six said that Jax Taylor, as well, advised for Faith not to appear on the series.
Taylor reportedly said that she wasn’t reality television material on account of supposedly getting kicked out of the military and also stealing. As most know, Kristin and Stassi aren’t the only celebrities to face the music over the last few weeks.
Lea Michele was also called out for her behavior by some of her Glee co-stars. Moreover, Stassi found herself in trouble once again after old pictures of her using the term, “Nazi Chic,” went viral on social media.
