Scheana Shay Comes To Max Boyens Boyens’ Defense After His Past Racist Tweets Resurfaced; Says “He Is A Good Person And He Has A Good Heart”

Scheana Shay is coming to her Vanderpump Rules co-star Max Boyens' defense after his past controversial tweets resurfaced earlier this year. “I mean, I don’t agree with anything he said in any of those tweets. I don’t condone that whatsoever,” she told Us Weekly.

“But I will say that Max, despite what you’ve seen on the show so far, he is — and I know I say this a lot as well — one of my best friends. But he really is a good person and he has a good heart. I know he is very apologetic for anything he said that was stupid in the past.”

Boyens, who first appeared on Vanderpump Rules’ eighth season in December, came under fire after his past racist and homophobic tweets resurfaced on social media.

In one tweet from October 2012, he said he was disappointed that he’s “not allowed” to say “n–ga,” regarding the insensitive term as his “favorite word.” He also called Justin Bieber “queer” for not “saying n–ga,” “cussing” and featuring “big booty bitches” in his music videos.

Boyens issued a public apology over his offensive remarks. “I want to sincerely apologize for what I tweeted in 2012 — it was wrong on every level,” he said in a statement to Us Weekly. “It is not a representation of who I am. I am shocked I ever tweeted that — and I am disgusted and embarrassed. I am truly sorry.”

In the wake of the controversial tweets, Boyens made his Twitter account private.
