In recent weeks, MTV has publicly distanced itself from two other stars, The Challenge‘s Dee Nguyen and Teen Mom‘s Taylor Selfridge.
Nguyen was fired by MTV after making what the network described as “offensive comments on the Black Lives Matter movement.” The statement continued, “We strongly condemn systemic racism and stand with those raising their voices against injustice.”
She later issued an apology, which read in part, “BLM to me every day. I’m trying to do the best I can with what is currently accessible to me.”
As for Selfridge, she too was given the axe “in light of her past racist statements on social media.” She addressed the matter by sharing on social media, “Once again, I apologize for anyone I have hurt or offended in the past. I have addressed my mistakes many times on the network and I would like to move on and continue to be the best version of myself. My past does not define who I am today and I hope you guys can see the change.”
