Xscape Fires NeNe Leakes From Tour
The backlash continues for NeNe Leakes. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star was reportedly dropped from the Xscape tour, over the comments she recently made to a heckler while hosting a comedy show. Xscape reportedly shared the news and 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. This tour is for and about our fans and we want to provide an entertaining and enjoyable experience for every single person who attends. It was an unfortunate incident for which Nene has since apologized and we wish her the best as she navigates this very difficult period.
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.
As previously reported, while hosting a show in Oakland, NeNe was heckled and she responded by telling the person that she hoped that they were raped by an uber driver. NeNe has since apologized. See the clip of her comments below, along with her apology.
