Jax Taylor Says Brett Caprioni And Max Boyens’ Twitter Controversy Over Past Racist Remarks “It’s Being Handled”; Says “It’s Up To The Network How They Want To Handle It”

Jax Taylor has a lot to say after his new Vanderpump Rules co-stars Brett Caprioni and Max Boyens came under fire last week over their past offensive and racist tweets that had resurfaced on social media.

“Yeah… it’s being handled,” the 40-year-old SUR bartender replied to a fan who sent him a screenshot of the tweets, according to Us Weekly.

In a second tweet, Taylor added, “No outcome yet… it’s up to the network how they want to handle it. Way above my pay grade…”

Taylor also “liked” a tweet that reads, “That’s what happens when they try to add new people. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!!”

Caprioni and Boyens made headlines after social media users started sharing screenshots of their offensive tweets from 2011 and 2012, which included homophobic, sexist and racist tweets. Caprioni and Boyens have since publically apologized.

Brett and Max's boss, Lisa Vanderpump came to their defense after their past tweets resurfaced.

“I do not condone any of the heinous comments made in the past by Max and Brett and I am glad they understand the severity of their offenses and have shown utmost remorse and contrition,” she said in a statement to Us Weekly. “I embrace a community of diversity and do not tolerate bigotry of any form within my workplace.”

Vanderpump added that both Boyens and Caprioni are “appropriately ashamed of their past obnoxious teenage arrogance and casual use of unacceptable terms.”

LVP concluded: “While both have now matured as adults, they have shown remorse for their prior reckless defamatory statements. I do sincerely believe both have learned the power and impact words can have, and I have every hope this will be a lifelong lesson for them as we move into this new decade.”
