Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes clapped back at a heckler – stating she hopes her Uber driver rapes her.
“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star NeNe Leakes clapped back at a heckler during a stand-up comedy show at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, Calif., on Saturday, wishing sexual assault upon the woman in question. Now some fans are saying she crossed the line.
“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 retorted. “And steal yo’ funky Hello Kitty, b—h.”
It’s unclear what the heckler said to Leakes to prompt her outrage. A Facebook user who shared video from the incident stated that the woman in question may have been booing Leakes’ performance.
The reality star, who returned to Bravo after three seasons away from “Real Housewives,”issued an apology on Facebook. She claimed that she didn’t intend for her words to “cut deep.”
“I truly regret and apologize for what I said from the stage in Oakland over the weekend. Sometimes words can cut deep and hurt when you have no intentions of them doing so,” she wrote.
“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.”
This isn’t the first time loose lips have gotten Leakes into trouble in recent weeks. The 49-year-old recently found herself in the midst of an ugly, public feud with “Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-star Kim Zolciak and her 20-year-old daughter, Brielle Biermann.On October 6, after a Snapchat video shot by Biermann featuring what appeared to be a cockroach in Leakes’ house surfaced, the former “The New Normal” star responded in an expletive-filled Instagram rant.
“We don’t have roaches! If you found 1, u brought it with u or it fell outta yo funky p—y!” she said, calling Biermann and her mother “racist trash.”
The post has since been deleted.
Zolciak wasted no time responding, stating that it was “so sad and offensive” that Leakes would “stoop so low.”
“Everyone in my life knows that I am far from racist and unfortunately NeNe Leakes has tried for the last 10 years to paint that picture because that’s her last resort. (It’s convenient that I’m not racist when we are getting along.)” she wrote.
The Daily News reached out to Leakes’ representation for comment, but did not hear back.
