Former Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd has apologized for a transphobic video she made for a fan.
Cameo is a platform where fans can pay some of their favorite celebrities to make videos for them, giving them a shoutout.
This is Jennifer’ she/her,’ I don’t get this,” Kelly said. “You’re either a boy or a girl, OK?” Kelly says in the video. “You’re born a girl or a boy. I don’t get it. You’re Jennifer. I’m sorry, I don’t give a f*ck.”
Then Kelly tried to apologize — but not really.
“This was the first time I saw a reference of he/him/she/they/them,” she said. “I grew up in Arizona with people who were born a boy and a girl and maybe a hermaphrodite here and there.”
She continued, “I dont’ hate on anyone. I’m not transphobic. I was just unfamiliar with the language,” she continued. She later added, “That’s only fair. And I’m learning and I’m growing and growing and maybe you can help me with this.”
