On Sunday’s Real Housewives Of Atlanta, Kim Zolciak made many comments in the bathroom in front Andrew Cohen, Shereee Whitfield and her husband Kroy Biermann.


They included:

  • That bitch knows I’m not f*cking racist
  • You know why you have not found another white woman to sit on that motherf-cker? ‘Cause nobody’s dumb enough to do that.
  • Shereé, I’m so upset with you. I just didn’t feel like you stuck up for me or helped me with them ganging up on me.
  • Put yourself in my shoes. Five African-American women just hammering. I couldn’t even speak! Like, my mind’s a f*cking whirlwind.
  • This whole racism thing in this day and age is bullshit. Every one of those motherf*ckers on that couch owe this world a f*cking apology for this racism shit.
  • They have tried to claim that shit long ago, Shereé, as you know.
  • Nobody really bought into it ’cause social media wasn’t there, and racism wasn’t f*cking all that real.

So here comes the apology tour which I knew was coming.

“During the last RHOA Reunion episode, I made a comment that confused and offended people. I sincerely apologize. Edited out of context, I understand why my remark angered people.
Racism is a sad reality in the United States. It has been prevalent throughout our country’s history. Let me be very clear, I do NOT support, tolerate or put up with any form of racism, hate or other discrimination. My love for ALL people runs deep – I am open to all and always have been.
I was heartbroken when I watched the last few minutes of the episode and saw how my words were taken out of context. My comment that seemingly “racism didn’t exist 10 years ago” was made as part of a larger, emotional 45-minute conversation about how, sadly, social media has become a hub for hate. Immediately following my confusing comment, I also said that “it’s not as real as it is now” referring to the power of social media. But those remarks didn’t make the show.
I believe that social media has made a centuries-old issue more real. Before social media, the public simply observed the news. Now, the public actively participates and has an opportunity to take action – in real time.
But this is a double edged sword. Now, when false accusations are made, they are amplified by online platforms regardless of their merit. This wasn’t the case 10 years ago when I started on RHOA.
I truly pray that the people wishing horrible things on others, and on me, channel that energy into something positive. Our world would be a much better place if you do.
I am committed to making this world a better place to live. I will continue to learn from, and be open to, ALL people”

We previously reported that filming had stopped for her show Don’t Be Tardy, and she was meeting with her lawyers this is what they suggested? You’d do better participating in Starbucks racial bias training.
