Nene Leakes isn’t backing down from her campaign to boycott Bravo following her exit from one of the network’s staple shows, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” After a series of tweets accusing the television network of discrimination, a petition, and even a sit-down with civil rights attorney Ben Crump, Nene isn’t ready to concede. The former “RHOA” star revealed that she was even willing to call out current cast members, including on-again, off-again friend Porsha Williams to bolster her case
On Monday, Feb. 1, the 52-year-old took to her Twitter account, where she again called for fans to “stand up, protest, sign the petition &stop watching!” She added, “Even the cast that’s currently filming knows wrong is & was happening. They try to silence us! We MUST speak up when wrong is happening. I won’t stop.”
In another post, Nene accused Bravo of bribing a number of people. “They pay off & reward lawyers, managers, agents & even certain cast members to keep their dirty work going,” she wrote. “I won’t stop speaking out until something is done. I will call names if need be.”
When asked by a fan why former co-star Porsha wasn’t supporting her, given Porsha’s history of protesting for causes like the Black Lives Matter movement, Nene claimed that the mommy of one was afraid of losing her job. “They scared to loose their checks but you can’t let them get away with Discrimination, retaliation and blacklisting and unequal pay!” Nene explained. “There’s power in numbers. I will start calling EVERYBODY OUT.”
In her most recent post, the actress admitted that she hadn’t said anything publicly in the past regarding what she says is the mistreatment of Black talent at the hands of the network. However, she claims she “spoke out behind the scenes in emails, text messages and conferences call. I can show you!” Nene said. “I spoke to executive for help as well for years. it MUST STOP! It doesn’t matter your race, just fight for what’s right.”
Fans continue to be torn on the feud between Nene and Bravo, with many accusing the star of being bitter and a little too late with her protest. Meanwhile, Porsha has yet to address Nene for including her in the boycott saga.
