'I've been in tears': Garcelle Beauvais lashes out at fans after son Jax, 14, gets cyberbullied amid 'RHOBH' feud
Garcelle Beauvais, 55, and Lisa Rinna, 59, of 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' both took to social media on Tuesday, August 23, to denounce hateful criticism aimed toward their children and those of their co-stars. The reality TV star, 55, who's mom to twins Jax and Jaid, 14, and Oliver, 31, tweeted, "I'm usually a very strong woman I've been raised to be strong my life has taught me to be strong but when it comes to my kids! It hurts it's not OK." "I've been in tears all night,' and urging online critics to 'leave our kids alone", she added with the hashtag #RHOBH at the end" after Jax was cyberbullied.
Lisa expressed a similar sentiment in an Instagram Story for her co-star. She wrote, "We are doing a tv show," she began. "We try to entertain you—why can't you treat it like wrestling for gods sakes love us—love to hate us but leave the kids alone!" Lisa also specifically mentioned Garcelle's children, her own daughters Amelia, 21, and Delilah, 24, as well as Kyle Richards' youngest child Porsha, 14, and Erika Jayne's adult son Tommy. The criticism comes after Garcelle's feud with Lisa on the show.
I’m usually a very strong woman I’ve been raised to be strong my life has taught me to be strong but when it comes to my kids! It hurts it’s not OK I’ve been in tears all night it’s just a TV show people scream at your TV throw something at your TV but leave our kids alone #RHOBH— Garcelle Beauvais (@GarcelleB) August 23, 2022
"What I was just sent about @garcelle son is disgusting and unacceptable. what I heard happen to Porsha @kylerichards18 is disgusting and unacceptable," Lisa wrote. "what you've said and done to my own kids is disgusting. The threats to @theprettymess son!?!! And I'm sure all of the other beautiful children."
Mentioning the 'RHOBH' ladies' families "didn't sign up" for the show, Lisa added, "all of our kids should be off limits so stop it now. Enough is enough." The controversy began on Monday, August 22, after Jax posted some of the comments he had been receiving on his recent Instagram photo, and wrote, ''I'm a f****** 14 year old leave me alone please.'' Many of the comments focused on Jax's older brother Oliver's issues with addiction.
Garcelle has two children with ex-husband Mike Nilon: Jax, 14, and Jaid, 14. She has an older son, Oliver, 31, with her ex-husband Daniel Saunders. Many of the users claimed that the abusive comments on Jax's Instagram posts came from bots. "I ran quite a few of these accounts through BeenVerified and they’re all bots. No traceable online history. I’m not going to assume who sent them, but it’s very interesting timing considering last weekend’s posts. #RHOBH", a user wrote while sharing the screenshots.
