Default MTV sever ties with Dee Nguyen following offensive BLM comments

Quote:





Nguyen’s costar on The Challenge: Total Madness, Tula “Big T” Fazakerley, also spoke up about Nguyen’s comments in an Instagram story on June 7. In a series of messages, she said she wasn’t surprised by Nguyen’s tweets about BLM since the two had “a slightly uncomfortable conversation” in Prague during the filming of the current season. Big T said that Nguyen “definitely needs to be educated” and hopes that the Australian reality star learns from her mistakes.

She also said: “I hope she realizes the reality of the situation which is, how many people she’s hurt by her words. Me included. The tweet is not funny, it is disrespectful, utterly degrading and wholly insensitive.” She explained the conversation in Prague that made her uncomfortable:

[Nguyen] said that she felt like she was ‘blacker’ than me because I didn’t know the name of a musician and because she hadn’t seen me fight and be aggressive. I felt like she was trying to make me fit her idea of a ‘stereotype.’ I’m mad at myself for not telling her how that made me feel afterwards and at that time.

I’m saying something now because I really think she needs someone to educate her and help change her attitudes regarding this. After seeing her tweets it just infuriated me even more and felt like I should be honest about my experience.

are the guys who made the girl cry who they kept calling 'chanelle' still on MTV tho? she made it very clear she felt it was racially motivated and last I saw at least one of the guys was still around.

All for these companys standing up but treat everyone with the same energy and maybe we wouldnt be in the situation we are in?

A gag!

Dee was getting consumed by the show at an alarming rate so it’s probably for her own good that she won’t be allowed to compete anymore. At least she managed to win some money considering she quit her job and moved halfway across the world just to compete.
