Positive Beverage has fired Kelly Dodd after her controversial comments.
The beverage company provided a statement on their Instagram Story and says they’re cutting ties with the Real Housewives of Orange County star following her racist comments and unprofessional social media conduct.
They write, “Our core values of wellness, community, diversity and inclusion should be reflected by our brand and anyone associated with it,” adding … “it has become clear over the past few months that Kelly’s controversial views and opinions have distracted from our primary objectives, so effective today, we are no longer affiliated with Kelly Dodd-Leventhal.”
Kelly Dodd tweeted on Sunday, “I’m glad I could help put Positive Beverage on the map and wish them well. I’m also really excited about my next venture in the beauty industry, which is my real passion. Stay tuned!”
The firing comes as a shock since Kelly Dodd previously claimed she owned a stake in the vitamin-infused water company.
Kelly Dodd made controversial comments about COVID-19 pandemic, “God’s way of thinning the herd.” She also mocked Blacks Lives Matter by wearing a hat that read, “Drunk Lives Matter.”
Back in April 2016, the 44-year-old was caught on camera in a racist rant, during a drunken incident outside of a bar, she slurred that she didn’t like black guys.
“I’m a human being. I make mistakes,” she said of the controversies during a December appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. “Everybody has said and done things in their lives that they regret, and I regret these things. I freaked out. It wasn’t right.”
On Friday, Kelly Dodd denied rumors that she had been fired from the Bravo reality series, after Andy Cohen hinted the show would be rebooted.
“No I am not fired !!! Contacts haven’t come out yet !” she wrote, blaming former Vicki Gunvalson for starting the rumors. “Vicki stop being a hater.”
