Nene Leakes Fired From Xscape Hosting Job Over Brutal Rape Rant

Nene Leakes Fired From Xscape Hosting Job Over Brutal Rape Rant

As we previously reported, the reality TV star was sacked from hosting Xscape's reunion tour after telling a female heckler at a comedy show that she hopes she gets raped.

"Like many, we were dismayed by the recent remarks made by our talented colleague and friend NeNe Leakes", they wrote in a statement to TMZ.

NeNe has since apologized for her comments on Instagram, but unfortunately, they were apparently too much for the 90s girl group. They also said that they had made the decision because they wanted to stand by women and to show other rape survivors that they had their support.

While Leakes has since apologized, the Xscape tour announced that she would no longer be hosting the event, wishing her well as she "navigates this very hard period". An audience member filmed the shocking scene and published it on social media, after which Leakes received a great deal of backlash from the public as well as from her executives. Or just, "Do not - this is not the place to come if you gonna clutch your pearls" or something - I don't know. "I hope he rape yo' ass tonight when he take you home, bitch", she told a female heckler in the crowd. "And steal yo' funky hello kitty, bitch".

The Glee actress was sacked from her hosting duties on the reunion tour of '90s R&B group Xscape, even after she apologized for her brutal comment. "Sometimes words can cut deep and hurt when you have no intentions of them doing so". "Everybody who knows me knows that I never would want that to happen".

The reality star was set to join the singers on the road as the show's host, along with Tamar Braxton and Monica. I hope people accept my deepest and sincerest apologies. There's no word on whether someone else will be brought in to replace Leakes.
