‘Vanderpump Rules’ racist stars Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute get the boot for calling cops on Faith Stowers
The black artist had accused the duo of being racist in the past with proof and internet canceled the two actors
A week after former 'Vanderpump Rules' star Faith Stowers revealed that OG show members Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute reported her to the police for a crime that had nothing to do with her, the show has fired both the stars. The show will also not see newer cast members Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni return after their past tweets that were racist resurfaced.
Bravo spokesperson confirmed the same to Variety and said in a statement, "Bravo and Evolution Media confirmed today that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules."
Stowers had accused Schroeder and Doute of being racists during an Instagram Live session a week ago. "There was this article on Daily Mail where there was an African American lady," she recalled in the video and added, "It was a weird photo, so she looked very light-skinned and had these different, weird tattoos. They showcased her, and I guess this woman was robbing people. And they called the cops and said it was me. This is like, a true story. I heard this from actually Stassi during an interview (sic)."

Schroeder had confirmed doing what was being alleged during a podcast interview for 'Bitch Bible' in 2018. She had also tweeted with a link to this interview and wrote, "Hey tweeties, doesn’t this ex #pumprules thief look familiar? someone put her on mtv & gave her a platform for press. I didn’t wanna go there but I’m going there (sic).”
Stowers's Instagram session went viral and so did her handle and it was following this that both Schroeder and Doute apologized. However, people on the internet and Bravo network believed that time was up for these celebrities resulting in them being canceled online and being fired.
The two stars follow a long list of celebrities who have been outed by fellow cast members about their past transgressions. From Lea Michele of 'Glee' to former 'Bachelor' star Hannah Brown, many have been put under the spotlight to face the consequences of their misconduct.
'Vanderpump Rules' recently wrapped up its eighth season and when the show will pick up again is still up in the air. The coronavirus pandemic has stopped production on television and movies since mid-March, and Bravo currently has no date to start shooting again.
