‘Real Housewives Of Salt Lake City’ Star Jen Shah Says Getting Bullied By ‘White Girls’ Is ‘Having Your Knee On My Neck’, Denies George Floyd Comparison

Reality star Jen Shah of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City says she wasn’t comparing her experience with getting bullied to George Floyd’s death.

George Floyd tragically died after a Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin, pinned his knee on his. neck for nearly 9 minutes last May.

Jen Shah, who is Tongan and Hawaiian, said on a social media video last summer:

“All these white girls come in and because this white girl says; ‘She threatened my life, she’s a bully, I’m so fearful of her’, without having any facts–they all support her! What kind of s*** is that? That is having your f****g knee on my neck! And then you sit there and tell me don’t talk, you can’t say s***. When I called my husband I was in tears, I couldn’t breathe. I didn’t think people were that evil and that mean.”

She later apologized after receiving tons of criticism for her comments.

“There’s a video out there online, someone took a clip of a Live I did last summer, I have not commented on it because it was so absurd to me. For people to say I’m racist or that I was comparing myslef to George Floyd, that could not be further from the truth.”

She continued,

“Anybody that knows me, all of you know, I am very adamant and passionate about social justice. I fight for all people of color, it’s very important to me. I fight for all people of color and disadvantaged groups. For anybody who thought that I was comparing my experience, my family’s experience to George Floyd, I am here to tell you that that is incorrect and it’s just not the truth.”
