The racist tweets involve Max Boyens using the N-word liberally on various occasions.
Max Boyens, who currently appears on Season 8 of the Bravo reality series, came under fire this week over his past offensive remarks — which includes attacks on gays, Asians and fat people.
Max Boyens subsequently deleted the controversial tweets and issued an apology.
“I want to sincerely apologize for what I tweeted in 2012 — it was wrong on every level,” he said in a statement to E! News. “It is not a representation of who I am. I am shocked I ever tweeted that — and I am disgusted and embarrassed — I am truly sorry.”
As of Thursday, Max Boyens’ Twitter account is private.
