Fans Think ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Star Stassi Schroeder Went Too Far With Her “Nazi Chic” Caption
Another day, another controversy from Stassi Schroeder. The Vanderpump Rules star is known for her slightly offensive nature, but fans think she crossed a line with the caption of a recent photo that she posted to her Instagram story over the weekend.
Stassi shared a ton of snaps from her girls' trip to Michigan with her Pump Rules co-stars Kristen Doute and Rachael O'Brien, but it's the way she decided to caption a mirror selfie of all three of them that caused a stir online. In the pic, Stassi dubbed Rachael's outfit "criminal chic," she called Kristen's outfit "Tupac chic," and she referred to her own outfit as "Nazi chic."
@Andy why oh why is this happening in 2018? How does Stassi think this is ok? Tone deaf, offensive, ignorant….she really never learns pic.twitter.com/JTKycGrope

She later deleted the photo and re-uploaded it with a new caption, calling her outfit "#Elsa-IndianaJones Chic" and added "Appropriate redo" at the bottom, but a screenshot of the original photo has already made the rounds on social media and fans were not here for Stassi's crude sense of humor.
"Hey quick clarification @stassi nazi jokes are never funny #dumpstassi," one fan wrote, and other fans quickly looped Bravo TV executive Andy Cohen in order to start a campaign to get Stassi fired from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills spin-off. "[Andy] Nothing but class from Stassi. I hope someone at your network is smart enough to fire her before you lose viewers," one fan wrote.
Fans even looped in Stassi's fellow Bravo stars to weigh in. Siggy Flicker stars on the current season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, where there also a storyline dealing with what was deemed as an anti-Semitic comment, and she had one word to describe Stassi's original caption. "Gross," she tweeted.

Instead of apologizing for stirring up controversy, Stassi took to Twitter to share an outdated meme that seems to sum up her view on the whole situation. "Me trying to make a joke that won't offend anyone in 2017," the meme read along with a photo of a boy trying to navigate his way around laser beams.
