NeNe Leakes dropped from Xscape reunion tour after rape comment



NeNe Leakes is out of a job after an inappropriate retort to a heckler.


The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star was supposed to host the Xscape reunion show, but was dropped by the group after she told a heckler she hoped she got raped by her Uber driver after her stand-up show over the weekend.


“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. It was an unfortunate incident for which Nene has since apologized and we wish her the best as she navigates this very difficult period,” the group said in a statement to TMZ.


“As strong supporters of all women, we know this decision is what is best. 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.”

“I ain’t even gonna tell you about the goddamn Uber driver. I hope he rape yo’ a-tonight when he take you home, b—h,” Leakes responded. “And steal yo’ funky Hello Kitty, b—h.”


The 49-year-old reality star later issued an apology.


“I truly regret and apologize for what I said from the stage in Oakland over the weekend,” she wrote on Facebook.

“Sometimes words can cut deep and hurt when you have no intentions of them doing so. As a woman and someone who has survived abuse, I regret the words that I used. I made a mistake and I should have known better. I hope people accept my deepest and sincerest apologies. I am sorry.”
