Billie Lee Says Jax Taylor “Refused to Film” With Her Because She’s Transgender
Vanderpump Rules has had one scandal after another. Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were recently fired from the show after Faith Stowers’ allegations against them. And now Billie Lee is speaking out against another cast member who she says should be fired as well.
The network had announced the news in a statement:
“Bravo and Evolution Media confirmed today that Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni will not be returning to Vanderpump Rules.“
Billie Lee Calls Out Jax Taylor For His Behaviour
“@BravoTV, what about Jax Taylor? He refused to film with me because I was trans and called him out on his white cis privilege,” Billie Lee tweeted. “Stop celebrating his disgusting actions. #CancelJaxTaylor.”
Billie Lee and Jax Taylor have both appeared together in scenes that have aired on the show.
However, this is not the first time Billie Lee is speaking out about a cast member. She called out her cast members before in a 2019 blog post for not treating her like an equal just because she’s a transgender. She said some of her coworkers “were threatened by my differences.” And were “going out of their way to exclude me.” Billie also said one of her coworkers also demanded that she be fired from the show. Just because he didn’t feel comfortable working with her. Although she didn’t mention his name, we now know Billie was talking about Jax Taylor.
“His exact words were, ‘I’m not gonna lose all I have worked hard for for something stupid I may say or do to offend her. Are we all supposed to tip toe around her because she’s trans?'” Billie said in her blog post. “Like most men during the #MeToo movement. He was so afraid of saying the wrong thing that he just wanted me gone.”
