Tamra Judge Is “Extremely Sorry” for Son’s Homophobic Rant
Tamra Judge wants to make something abundantly clear:
She is a strong supporter of the LGBT community.
What has driven The Real Housewives of Orange County star make this point as precisely as possible?
Because not only did her son go on a homophobic rant last week that included the call for a transgender individual to be murdered…
… but Judge also Liked one of the posts include by her son, Ryan, in this diatribe.
Back on January 17, the 33-year old brought up someone who sued a Colorado baker for refusing to make a cake celebrating this person’s gender transition.
“Hopefully this guy goes on a rampage and kills whatever transgendered f-ck head took him to court. Ooops did I just say that,” Ryan Tweeted in response to the story.
Ryan later added that this “country needs to kill off this f-ckery bullshit” and said:
“You want to be transgender cool that’s your life but don’t push your transgender bullsh-t on me or America.”
We recapped Ryan’s heinous words above, but his Tweet storm included a link to a story about a transgender couple in Great Britain who is transitioning its five-year old child.
Judge Liked this post and wrote along with her button-push:
“Wow, that’s sad. 5-year-old cannot make a decision like that.”
Many social media users interpreted this Like and this remark as support for her son’s views, something the veteran Bravo star did NOT attend, she now explains.
Tamra and son Ryan are pictured here in a scene from an old episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County.
“I’d like to address the many comments regarding my son Ryan’s posts on Instagram,” wrote Judge to open a lengthy caption, which she included along with the Martin Luther King Jr. photo/quote below.
“I have been extremely upset my son would post such a thing. A post that I did NOT see because he took it down immediately knowing it was WRONG,” she added.
Why did she remark on the story about that British couple?
“Admittedly, I had a concerned “mom” moment when referring to a post about a 5-year-old making life altering decisions. My comment did not come from a place of hate,” she said on Instagram yesterday.
Ryan is the 33-year old son of Tamra and ex-husband Darren Vieth. She gave birth to him at the age of 18 and has tried to stick by him through a handful of trying situations.
He was arrested in 2015 on a charge of domestic abuse against his girlfriend.
“I’ve encouraged Ryan to make his own amends but in the meantime, I’m extremely sorry, His words were harsh & unacceptable,” Judge wrote here of her child, concluding:
“I have nothing but love & respect for the LGBTQ community….always have always will. I will continue 2019 with a renewal of peace, wellness & love for all.”
Tamra shares three other children with her ex, Simon Barney: daughters Sidney, 20, and Sophia, 13, and son Spencer, 18.
The reality star married Eddie Judge in June of 2013.
Do you accept her apology in this case?
Or do you think Tamra is full of it and still deserving of scorn?
