Brandi Redmond Responds To Racism Allegations After An Old Video Of Her Imitating Asians Surfaces On Social Media!

Brandi Redmond is facing backlash after an old video from her Instagram Story surfaced on social media where the Real Housewives of Dallas star is seen imitating Asians. The Bravo reality star took to Twitter to address the controversial topic.

According to Reality Blurb, the clip was originally filmed in 2017 during the show's second season when D'Andra Simmons suggested she had “squinty eyes.” Redmond reveals why she decided to make the video in the first place and apologizes for her actions.


“2020… [Saturday Night Live] has always been a dream bc they never disappoint. Life is love and laughter. There is a difference between humor and hurtfulness. I will always chose to love you and hope to make you laugh. Cheers to a new year & decade. Let’s do this!” she tweeted on January 1.


A fan then suggested that Redmond should apologize to co-star LeeAnne Locken, who was also accused of being racist over comments she made about Kary Brittingham on the current season of the Bravo hit reality series.


“And she should probably apologize to LeeAnne, after what was an obvious performance at the reunion. You cannot label someone a racist, when you yourself have things like this out in the universe,” the person wrote.

“I was referring to myself And being Asian. Cheers,” Brandi replied.

After a fan called Brandi’s behavior “disappointing,” she claimed that she was making a joke and was hoping to make people laugh with her impersonation.


“I want to make ppl laugh not cry. If you think my intention was to make you cry or hurt I’m sorry. I was making a joke about myself and my cast saying I have squinty eyes. I impersonate ppl for laughter not pain. I thought you knew me better than your accusation,” Brandi tweeted.


Brandi then publically apologized for making the video. “My heart hurts and I do apologize if I hurt anyone. Not my intention. It was never directed towards anyone but myself,” Brandi wrote.

Even though Brandi apologized, she insisted that "there was no hard was done" but admits that she "would do it again for a damn good audition.


“It’s a good impersonation if I do say so myself and there was no harm done. I would do it again for a damn good audition. Have a great day.”


She added: “But there is a difference between making fun of yourself vs others or talking sh*t.”
