The self-proclaimed “very rich bitch” #NeneLeakes, has been dropped from the upcoming #XSCAPE tour over her recent “joke” about rape.
During her standup comedy show, Nene told a fan that she hoped her Uber driver raped her. She has since apologized for her comment, but the apology wasn’t enough for XSCAPE.
XSCAPE released a statement saying:
“Like many, we were dismayed by the recent remarks made by our talented colleague and friend Nene Leakes. As a result, we have decided to no longer proceed with her participation on our tour. It was an unfortunate incident for which Nene has since apologized and we wish her the best as she navigates this very difficult period. As strong supporters of all women, we know this decision is what is best. Our hearts go out to all female victims and we stand with you! This tour is for and about our fans and we want to provide an entertaining and enjoyable experience for every single person who attends. As always, we are grateful for the love and support and we look forward to seeing all of you at “The Great Xscape” tour.”
Nene should’ve known not to bring up rape. The joke was distasteful and considering what her cast mate, Kandi Burruss, went through with Phaedra Parks last season on “Real Housewives of Atlanta”…rape is not the subject you want to joke about.
