New year, same shocking antics.
During the Jan. 2 episode of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, Mary Cosby came under fire for racially insensitive comments she had made in the previous episode about co-star Jennie Nguyen‘s facial features. Jennie confronted Mary about the references to her “slanted eyes,” to which Mary replied, “I didn’t mean any harm by that. Like, for me, it’s a compliment.”
In the previous episode, Mary also referenced Jennie’s skin tone, calling it “yellow,” and on the Jan. 2 episode imitated the Vietnamese-American’s accent.
Jennie explained, “You’re an adult, take some responsibility. Right now, there is a lot of Asian hate. Take responsibility for your words.”
Eventually, Mary apologized, saying, “I will never walk down that road. I apologize.”
