Vanderpump Rules newbies Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni have been exposed for extremely racist and homophobic tweets. As of currently, Max has apologized and made his Twitter private.
The new stars of the show have already rubbed loyal Vanderpump Rules fans the wrong way by the comments they made about Scheana Marie being a ‘bad kisser’ and ‘boy crazy’. Now, the disgusting messages they’ve shared in the past have given viewers even more reasons to side-eye them.
In 2012, Max was a fully grown adult when he tweeted: ‘It upsets me that the word n**** is not allowed to be said unless you are black because quite honestly it’s my favorite word.’
In another one, he stated that he wanted to punch Asians in the face.
There was also one where he referred to Justin Bieber as ‘queer.’
‘When is Justin Bieber going to realize that saying n**** and cussing and having big booty b****** in his songs is the cool thing to do #queer.’
Another message read: ‘Theres this girl I see everyday @ school, she looks just like the girl from the movie precious & I’m not just saying this cuz she’s big and black.’
Bravo fan account Facereality16 that usually produces hilarious Bravo-related memes and content was the first to bring the tweets to viewers’ attention.
Unfortunately, it gets worse. Brett. who was also an adult when he tweeted his share of racist messages, is guilty of writing just as disturbing tweets as Max.
One read: ‘wassup wit black people wearin so much Aeropostale I don’t get it lol.’
Caprioni’s other tweets heavily use the n-word and hashtagged sexist phrases such as #womensuck.
So far, Boyens was the only one to apologize for his behavior.
He released a statement that read: ‘I want to sincerely apologize for what I tweeted in 2012 — it was wrong on every level. It is not a representation of who I am. I am shocked I ever tweeted that — and I am disgusted and embarrassed — I am truly sorry.’
Most fans find it odd that in 2020 — Bravo doesn’t vet the social media of the people they bring on to their shows.
