‘Straight Up with Stassi’ has been pulled from all streaming platforms as Radio.com issues a statement condemning its host for her past ‘racially charged and inappropriate actions.’
AceShowbiz -“Straight Up with Stassi”, the podcast of former “Vanderpump Rules” star Stassi Schroeder, has been pulled from all streaming platforms following her dismissal from the Bravo reality show on Tuesday, June 09.
The beleaguered TV regular was dropped from the series, along with three other castmembers – Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni, after racially insensitive posts and incidents from their pasts came to light.
The move came amid the backdrop of global Black Lives Matter protests and unrest in the streets of American cities following the death of George Floyd last month.
On Wednesday, bosses at Radio.com, the company which hosts Schroeder’s popular podcast yanked the audio series from all streaming platforms and a statement released by the outlet reads: “We recently learned of racially charged and inappropriate actions by Stassi Schroeder during one of her previous projects. In light of this, Radio.com has made the decision to part ways with her. We take these matters very seriously and condemn these actions.”
Also on Wednesday, SUR owner and former “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Vanderpump commented on the dismissals, noting she was unaware of her employees’ past, adding that she, her family and businesses “condemn all forms of cruelty, racism, homophobia, bigotry and unequal treatment”.
Schroeder has also been fired by bosses at her Hollywood talent agency, UTA, and her publicity firm Metro Public Relations.
