Crystal Minkoff denounces “racist” followers in Instagram DMs
RHOBH’s Crystal Kung Minkoff exposes the hurtful messages she received from viewers about her race. The star had the best response for her bullies.
New to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Crystal Kung Minkoff is not retaining Instagram followers who have hurled racist slurs at her. Crystal has received many favorable reviews from fans since joining the cast of RHOBH on season 11. The first Asian-American housewife in the series is an open book about her life and has been praised for being vulnerable and real. Crystal is also proud of her Asian heritage and has spoken about her race-related struggles on RHOBH. While many fans are receptive to Crystal’s refreshing personality on the show, the star has received her fair share of online hate throughout her first season.
Beverly hills fans recently noticed that Crystal apparently deactivated her Twitter account without warning. It was pointed out that Crystal had received numerous hate messages from viewers on Twitter regarding her race and Asian culture. Crystal has been called derogatory names by viewers and accused of misrepresenting Asian Americans on television. Fans believe racist hatred online led Crystal to shut down her Twitter. Sadly, that didn’t stop viewers from sending hate to Crystal in her Instagram DMs.
The rookie housewife took to her Instagram story to expose the hurtful messages she received. Crystal shared a screenshot of a subscriber’s message telling her she has to leave RHOBH. The follower made a derogatory remark about Crystal Dumplings, Asian cuisine. Crystal retaliated to the uneducated insult with a perfectly savage response. “Acting like a *** ad won’t make yours bigger“Crystal wrote, adding:”and my dumplings are not good. They are amazing!“Crystal added”Stop racism” and “We don’t hang out with racists“stickers to history.
Another IG user took issue with Crystal blowing up her enemy and claimed her post was not racist. “When people don’t even know what racism is “, Crystal wrote on a screenshot of this post. The user hit back in another DM at the star with an inappropriate comment on Crystal, who was born to immigrant parents, and her Haitian. RHOBH co-star Garcelle Beauvais. In the screenshot, Crystal returned a DM to the angry follower. “Americans are not racists“, replied Crystal,”You are.” Crystal politely signed, writing: “Be well. And good luck to you.“
Fans are hoping the incident doesn’t lead Crystal to delete her Instagram account like she did with her Twitter account to avoid hate messages. Crystal isn’t the first Asian-American housewife to receive an inexcusable hatred for her online running. Bravo announced its support for the Asian community after The Real Housewives of Dallas star Tiffany Moon has been the subject of racist hatred. If the network claims to be engaged in the fight against racism, it will stand by and defend Crystal, who receives nasty messages. Hopefully Crystal won’t be bothered by the hate and will continue to post her stylish looks and delicious recipes for her followers who support her.
