Heather Dubrow Reveals She Understands Why ‘RHOC’ Fans Want To Cancel Kelly Dodd!

Heather Dubrow admits she understands why fans of The Real Housewives of Orange County are boycotting the series due to Kelly Dodd's controversial comments about COVID-19 and for wearing a hat that said 'Drunk Wives Matter.'

“I don’t harbor any ill will. I don’t want to be friends, but I have… nothing,” she said during an appearance on the Poplitically Incorrect podcast when asked about her relationship with Dodd.

“But, I think that in these days and times, talking about the boycott, if you don’t believe in the Black Lives Matter movement, if you’re gonna be against this, if you’re not gonna understand where we are in our world today and what humans need, you’re not human,” she continued, according to The Daily Mail.

“And I think in those circumstances, you can understand why someone would be cancelled.”

However, the former Bravo reality star added that she's "not a big fan of cancel culture" in general.

Dodd first came under fire in April when she claimed the coronavirus pandemic was “God’s way of thinning the herd.” However, she quickly apologized, saying, “That’s not what I meant.”
“I’m not insensitive,” she said at the time. “I feel bad for all the families that lost loved ones, and I do think that we should all stay home and protect everybody. That’s not what I meant, and I want to apologize to anyone who got offended, OK? I’m sorry.”

In May, Dodd apologized again for another insensitive comment she made about the pandemic.

“I’m so sorry if I offended anyone regarding the Coronavirus. Like millions of Americans, I’m frustrated and longing for the way things were but I absolutely empathize with those who’ve lost loved ones..,” she tweeted.

The Bravo reality star’s apology comes after footage from an Instagram live featuring Kelly surfaced. During the chat, a friend of the RHOC star told her, “It’s more every day. In New York, we’re down to 250 [deaths] a day.”

Dodd then compared coronavirus to “the flu” and added, “But how many people die on a daily basis? … Well, people are going to die! I’m sorry to tell ya.”

Early last month, Dodd responded to the backlash she received on social media after she shared a photo wearing a hat that says “Drunk Wives Matter” at her bridal shower. The hat — a play on Black Lives Matter — did not sit well with many of her fans and slammed her on social media. Dodd revealed that the hat was a gift from a friend and was intended to be a joke.

“It’s my bridal shower. I didn’t buy it. It was a joke,” Kelly explained in a video via her Instagram Stories. “Drunk Wives Matter. They kind of do. You know what? All lives matter. It was a joke and so people that can’t get a joke, go f*ck yourselves, okay?”

She added, “Go f*ck yourselves!”
