How Brett Caprioni Really Feels About Being Fired From Vanderpump Rules

Brett Caprioni is speaking out following the news that he was fired from Vanderpump Rules after racist tweets he made resurfaced.

"While I'm disappointed to no longer be part of the cast, I respect Bravo's decision," he told Us Weekly. "I continue to be truly sorry for the insensitive comments I made in the past and have worked within my community to repair the damage I've caused. I have learned a lot and grown from the experience but understand that it's not enough. I will continue to do more regardless of my affiliation with VPR because it's the right thing to do."


Caprioni previously issued an apology when the tweets, in which he repeatedly used the N-word, were circulated on Instagram. "I want to express my deepest apologies for the insensitive, ignorant, and hurtful comments I made," he said in a statement to Page Six. "I am incredibly ashamed and accept full responsibility, and acknowledge that this language was as unacceptable then as it is now. Please know that I have learned and grown since then and would never use this language today. From the bottom of my heart, I am truly sorry."

Brett Caprioni isn't the only person who was fired from Vanderpump Rules

Bravo seems to be taking a strong stance against racism as they also fired three more people from Vanderpump Rules: Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Max Boyens. Schroeder and Doute were fired after former cast mate Faith Stowers, the only Black cast member to ever appear on Vanderpump Rules, alleged that they once called the police on her for a crime that she did not commit. "There was this article in the Daily Mail where there was an African American lady," she explained on Instagram Live (via a video uploaded to Twitter). She added, "I guess this woman was robbing people. And they called the cops and said it was me."


Boyens, like Caprioni, came under fire after racist tweets he made resurfaced.

The firings came as a big surprise to the Vanderpump Rules cast. "They are shocked," a source told Us Weekly. "There was still no word to the cast about the plans for starting up filming for next season."
